Ten Mile Creek Brewery is a seven barrel brewery located in Helena, MT down on the historic Last Chance Gulch Walking Mall. Snug between The Hawthorn Bottle Shop and Helena’s favorite confectionery, The Parrot. Founded by three local Montanans, Jordan Keltz, Ethan Kohoutek, and Riley Tubbs, at the age of 24. Opening our doors in October of 2015, Ten Mile Creek Brewery became the third brewery in Helena.
Our namesake “Ten Mile Creek” comes from our most important ingredient, water. The creek is in the beer. The watershed supplies most of Helena, including our brewery, with clean, great tasting water making for a excellent craft beer. Each batch has Montana grown barley and all other ingredients are sourced as local as possible. Because of the smaller size our system we are able to experiment often with new brews. Our goal with the small brewery is that each visit into the taproom gives you something new to taste and always a great environment to be in.
We consider ourselves “a somewhat organized community” and are here to help the community. That is why local products are a theme within our beer and as we built the brewery that inspiration continued. For example, the bar, tables and trim are all made of pine beetle killed trees harvested near Helena. We feature local artists on our walls, local musicians, and try to have as many local food trucks as possible. Lastly, we partner with as many local businesses and non-profits as possible knowing that these type of partnerships benefit everyone involved.
Downtown is the culture of our city and Ten Mile Creek Brewery strives to make a vibrant downtown for the whole city to enjoy. Come on down to the Gulch and become part of our “somewhat organized community”.
