The 5th annual Missoula Craft Beer Week starts Saturday. This year's celebration of local brews is aimed towards pairing outdoor activities with beer. The week includes events like a bicycle brews cruise and a beer run.
Event Co-founder Ryan Newhouse.
"We wanted to incorporate and show how beer can be integrated in other Missoula businesses and Missoula activities."
The festivities also include various beer-tasting events that Newhouse says beer-enthusiasts will enjoy.
"So you’re going to get the education instead of just going up to a bar and ordering whatever from a list and not talking to anybody about it. You’re going to kind of get a new level, or deeper level of engagement."
The week ends next Saturday with the Garden City Brewfest. Newhouse says he estimates a turnout of about 6,000 people.
