The country’s 1st combination of Microbrewery + Center for Community Transformation
Open Daily 12pm to 8pm
The bison is the only animal known to walk towards oncoming storms. Our logo of a bison unifying the map of the world encapsulates the vision of the brewery: to approach the challenges in society in a celebratory way to be a unifying agent of constructive change in Missoula, Montana, and beyond.
For two decades, we have worked in conflict zones around the world to promote peace and healing within communities affected by violence.
Based on these experiences, we developed the vision for Imagine Nation Brewing Co. (INBC) with the belief that it can make the process of change accessible and positive for as many people as possible. What we have noticed over the years in a variety of contexts is that social change is generated more effectively when a constructive entity or group exists—in this case a brewery—where individuals feel a sense of belonging while they receive support for building and implementing skills that can better the communities in which they live.
The Imagine Nation Brewing Co. will strive to incorporate the best of what microbreweries currently offer while taking the model one step further. Not only will INBC produce excellent beer made from the highest quality ingredients and create space for people to connect and celebrate life together, it will also serve as a nexus for social change.
In order to accomplish this, we will use the taproom to host workshops on integrative community and personal transformation and to provide a stimulating environment for local groups to conduct positive initiatives that serve the surrounding community.
By combining a sustainable business model proven to be successful all over Montana with educational programs based in lessons that transformed some of the most difficult situations in the world, it is our hope that INBC will become a creative hub where better beer is just the beginning.
