Got there on Friday about 5pm, were not sure which beer to try so the two ladies behind the bar helped us out, gave us a few free samplers. Found the Huckleberry beer to be good. The wife and I had a jug or two. Had some fun visiting and listening to the good music!! Could of stayed longer.....

A unique experience for Whitefish as a local pub. Lots of activity going on in the place. Best bet - burgers and fries

I highly recommend this place for a fun atmosphere and good drinks in down town Whitefish! I have been there two different times and my experience has been nothing short of excellent. The first time my boyfriend and I visited (2015) while we were waiting for a table at a restaurant down the street. We each had a couple of... More

The Great Northern Brewing Co. has become a go to when taking a day off of the slopes. They have great beer, food, service and a fun games room at the back of the pub. Highly recommend!

Vacationing around Glacier National Park, we visited Great Northern on a shopping day. Arrived just as the brewery was opening for the day. The brewery was full of memorabilia, souvenirs, and beer! We perused the displays, then made our way to the second floor - where we had a couple of samplers of the varieties of craft beer. The personnel... More

Not sure why I really liked this place but sometimes its about the vibe or atmosphere or food or beer or all the above. The location was fun as was the view and the ability to watch them make beer from almost every corner. The food was better and different then normal pub food. We visited in the early afternoon...

This was a great tour if you like breweries. The beer we sampled was excellent and you get up close to all the workings of the place. We ordered food as well which was surprisingly good! The staff were very friendly and obviously really enjoyed their jobs. Atmosphere is lighthearted and relaxed.

Great Northern is an excellent brewery with a good variety of beers. There is "pub food", but you don't go there to eat. My favorite beer is Going to the Sun IPA. Not overly hopping with a pleasing taste. Good Medicine, Wheatfish and Wild Huckleberry Wheat Lager are also very good.

Ate dinner and watched Thursday night football and MLB playoffs last night. We had spring roll appetizer, fish taco, pulled pork taco and hangover cure burger! All were good, the burger was the best - I don't know how my son ate it all. Service was excellent. Good section of craft beers and special was $1 off of pints of... More
