Behind the Curtain

Our large 6,800 sq ft  “laboratory” is where innovation, experience, and a collective passion for creating unbelievable flavors comes to life. Housing our production and holding tanks as well as a canning line, this state of the art facility empowers our “scientists”  to invent the unique flavors that define the By All Means mission, deliver exceptional brews

Who We Are

Our skilled brewers innovate, redefine, and stretch the definition of “brewing” by all means necessary. We believe that good beer should be bold but approachable, which is why we’re the first brew lab in Billings to use a centrifuge to enrich the quality of our brews. Centrifugation is the “cadillac” of filtration technologies as it preserves the beer’s flavor while separating solid particles. Simply put, it filters beer without stripping it of its integrity and richness.

What the Foeder?

We’re glad you asked. Foeders (pronounced FOOD-er) are an experimental brewer’s dream. Historically used to age wine, these large wooden barrels have recently hopped over to the wonderful world of beer-making. Each foeder batch takes about 12-18 months and requires patience, love, and a sensitive palette. Many large brewers have adopted this method to create rich, tart sours. We have our sights set on other fruit-infused concoctions, but you’ll have to stop by for a tasting to find out why. Plus, we might be the only brew lab in Montana with a viewing room just for our foeders.
