Conflux Brewing Company is a new brewpub project in downtown Missoula, MT and was built around simple ideas: Let's create a convergence (conflux) of great beer and unique food using sustainable and community driven practices.
Take in the view from the oversized windows and our open balcony on the amazing corner of Pattee St and Main St in downtown Missoula. Inside you can check out a full view of our brewery operation with our version of classic beer styles and Montana inspired comfort food. Outside you can hang out on our patios, drink by our fire pit and enjoy sidewalk dining along Pattee St.
Coming in late spring/early summer of 2018, Conflux Brewing Co will be located in the middle of down town Missoula at 200 E Main St in a new 10,000 sqft building. We are excited for our beer and food menus to showcase as many local ingredients as we can get our hands on and for our brewery in Missoula, MT to add another piece to an amazing craft beer scene!
Our beer will be brewed on site in our 15 barrel brew house. We plan to offer a wide range of beer styles including aggressively hopped IPA's, hazy NE style IPA's and pale ale's, European ales and lagers, NW style pale ales and seasonal specialties. Our line up will include lighter "session" style beers and standard craft styles. We will have a mix of mainstay and rotating beers on tap.
Our menu will go beyond what is expected from pub fare with handcrafted comfort food featuring as many locally sourced products that we can get our hands on.
Approachable, creative and locally sourced will be our focus with clean flavors and simplicity in mind...so to speak. By that we mean our food will have creative, fun combinations that let our locally sourced ingredients showcase themselves, why get in the way of a good thing!
Keeping it local, staying humble and using sustainable practices to create the best beers and food we can are what we're about at Conflux Brewing Company. Our philosophy is that quality is achieved through working with and supporting first rate people by giving them the tools and ingredients they need to be amazing. The culture we strive to create for our employees and how we are viewed in our community are extremely important aspects to our success, and we are committed to working hard every day for both our crew and our community.
Conflux Brewing Company is a family run business that is 100% locally owned. This allows us to act independently in the choices we make and gives us the freedom to create the culture we are striving for. We wish to be a sustainable business that is socially, ethically and environmentally responsible. The hope for our building is to be used a vessel that encourages positive changes to our growing community, and that our growing community keeps us motivated and moving!
The idea of the public house, or "pub", resonates strongly with us. Pubs hold a unique place in the American experience and colonial pubs were pillars of the community. Conflux Brewing is our attempt to revive and embody the quality, creativity and warmth that historic pubs represented to their communities.
We are on a mission to bring the inspiration of Montana to our taps by pushing the limits of creativity in the brewhouse for the beer we make. We are set up to welcome families with kid friendly food and engaging play areas. Our building has numerous areas for groups, couples and individuals to choose from including an outdoor patio on each floor, bar seating, two dining rooms and a private meeting space that can accommodate groups up to 24.
We are set up to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We are using a CO2 recycling program to recapture CO2 and reduce/eliminate the greenhouse gasses released from brewing.
Make great beer. Have fun. Do good and give a damn about your community.
Our building is structured for solar to help supplement our energy needs and our structural systems are set up to run as efficiently and simply as possible.
Our location downtown is right next to a public bus stops, and we are stocked with bike racks on our sidewalks. This allows you to walk/bike/bus to Conflux and be with in blocks of everything happening downtown at the markets and local shops!
We are always looking for ways to give back to our community and encourage our employees to do the same. Hit us up if you have an idea to share or would like to help a group host an event for a worthy cause!
We are set up to accommodate the family out for a meal, as well as the couple or group who wants to be kid free. We have space for large groups looking to host a private event as well.
