It is often referred to as the "social event of the year", and I had an incredible time last year!

Summit Beverage and the Grizzly Scholarship Association (GSA) are excited to announce that the 10th Annual Montana Wine & Beer Festival is scheduled for Friday, October 23rd, at the Adams Center on the campus of the University of Montana. The event will run from 7-10 p.m.

The festival consists of fine wine and beer tasting with food samples from some of Missoula’s top restaurants and caterers. In addition, Montana artists will be on site displaying and selling art. A silent auction consisting of limited edition originals and a variety of wine & beer items as well as Griz memorabilia will be a part of the evening festivities. All proceeds from this event benefit the GSA and their mission of providing scholarships for student-athletes.

Tickets are at a new price of $50 per person and you must be 21 or older to attend.
