  • Friendly staff, great music, and a cool space. The turnover on seasonal/one off offerings seems pretty quick, so it's worth going back if you're into craft beer. Cheeky tagline in the shadows of giants. I wouldn't call the beer exceptional, but they're a perfectly acceptable introduction to craft beer for the average beer drinker. I'd go back.
  • Absolutely my favorite place to get a beer. Always new things on tap, a wide variety for any pallete, and they serve delicious food. In the summer you can bring your dog, hang out in the sun and enjoy some of the best beers in Montana. If you are a tourist looking for a quick bite and drink or a local looking for your new hang out, bonsai is the place to be!
  • On a 3 week road trip in ID & MT we visited many breweries and this was another one of our favorites! We stopped in after a day of downhill mountain biking - we were tired, dirty, thirsty, and hungry. Our dog had been cooped up for hours and this place had a dog friendly garden so we were all able to relax, eat, and drink up. The garden is really nice and large, several tables and lots of space for kids and dogs alike to be spread apart. The inside was a little on the small side, and you had to go in to order and the line was a bit long every time I went in.... an outside ordering spot would be a plus. The kitchen is outside, but you place your order inside. First we started with a sampler and then each got a pint. My favorite was the Wicked Good Wit It and the Mr loved the Sheriff John Brown..... but several were very good. For food we shared the Tacos and the Buck Naked Burrito Bowl..... very good food! Overall we loved everything about this stop - the laid back ambiance and outdoor dining and drinking garden, the good beers, and the great food.
  • One of my favourite places to visit when I get to Whitefish. They are experimenting with tons of local beers and it's worth stopping in often to what's new. Music is always good, staff are always friendly. In the summer this place is a blast with a party outside seemingly going on every day.
  • I can see the appeal of this place as a cosy hangout for summer or after skiing. But as a non-beer drinker and someone who was wanting something with meat and fries, there wasn't many options for me. No cider or fries? We went somewhere else.
