Mom and I had a mission to visit every brewery in the Missoula area. Yeah, I know–it’s not as lofty a goal as visiting every brewery in Portland, but it was a goal. It’s important to have goals.
We’re going to need new goals now.
Conflux was the last on the list, and it didn’t disappoint. The lamb burger was amazing. So amazing, in fact, that I don’t remember what Mom ordered.
The Chili Nelson was an interesting beer. I didn’t taste any heat, but definitely got the pepper flavor. It was mild–not like the slap-you-in-the-face-and-take-your-dignity effect I’ve encountered in other chili beers. I’m a fan.
The building itself is awesome. I can’t wait to come back in the summer to sit on one of the patios. Service was good, people were friendly, and we left full and happy. What more can you ask for?
We grabbed two crowlers on our way out: a Velvet Danger Hazelnut Brown, and a Two Shots in the Dark Java Stout. The Velvet Danger didn’t wow us. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t memorable. No hint of hazelnut in the flavor at all. The Two Shots was outstanding. Awesome coffee flavor. I’ll definitely order that one again.
