We recently did a story about the Ten Drunkest Towns in Montana, and people loved it. That had us thinking, what is Montana's favorite beer to drink? We did some digging and found our answer.

Eat This, Not That came out with a list of The Most Popular Beer in Every State, and we disagree with Montana's pick. The most popular beer in Montana is Budweiser.

We have nothing against the King of Beers, but we don't believe that Budweiser is the most popular beer in Montana. I've lived in Montana most of my life, and the most popular domestic beers are either Bud Light or Coors Light. Even Busch Light is popular among the college crowds.

We would also like to point out that Montanans prefer to pick a craft beer over something mass-produced. Two Montana craft brewery beers come to mind that locals love. Those two beers are Kettlehouse Brewing's Cold Smoke Scotch Ale and MAP Brewing's Midas Crush IPA.

Both of these beers are in high demand all over the state, and Kettlehouse had a Cold Smoke shortage a few years ago because of the high demand.

Either way, if you are having a rough week or need a drink to enjoy with your meal, maybe give one of these beers a try.
