Our centrally located circular bar and friendly, professional, outgoing bar staff consistently earn "Best Bar in Bozeman" honors. A handcrafted end-grain maple bar top, double-barreled draft towers pouring north and south, and suspended steel and glass liquor soffit, is the energetic hub of Ale Works, and a go-to Bozeman gathering place. Over 30 seats to enjoy 40-plus local and regional craft brews on tap, premium and artisan-made liquors, signature cocktails, an approachable wine list and our full food menu.
Sidle up. We’ve got room at the bar.
Three core dining areas – East Lounge, West Lounge and Main St Lounge – accommodate every need, from intimate dining for two, to lively gatherings of ten or more. Ample high and low-top tables are interspersed with comfy booths to match any mood and group size.
A regulation billiards table anchors an area bathed in natural light from period floor to ceiling windows that overlook the patio. A spacious corner booth and dozens of high-top tables accommodate parties of all sizes, from couples to four-tops to large groups. Poolside is a perfect spot to pass long summer evenings (or long cold winter nights) over a game of pool, a frosty pint, a Montana pasture-raised beef burger or steak and… yeah, a locally crafted whiskey (neat).
Our historic freight car pulled up to the main dining room, on rails, for opening day, and it never left. One of our most distinctive dining areas, with beautiful sound-proofed fir ceiling, comfy booths overlooking Main Street, and high-top tables fronting the energetic action just off the bar.
Casual dining at Bozeman's best.
Enjoy our sunny Main Street exposure, full bar, dining, and our renowned hospitality, plus patio-only cocktails, blended margaritas and craft brew specials all summer long!
The ultimate casual feel under Montana's Big Sky
For those long spring, summer, and early fall evenings.
