Way out in Superior, MT is a brewery that is so small it doesn't have its own taproom. To get Dunluce beer, you have to stop at a local bar.

My overall rating:


Dunluce doesn’t have an official taproom at their brewery. I think because they brew out of their own home. Instead there is a list of bars that have Dunluce on tap for you to choose from. Unfortunately, this means (or it did in my case) that you only get one beer to choose from of theirs.

Superior, MT is probably not a place you’ve heard of, or planned on stopping. It’s a small little town on the western side of the state, home to some bars and a NAPA. (Really though, why does every town in Montana, no matter how small, have a NAPA?) It is pretty though, hard not to be on that half of the state.

I chose to go to Four Aces Bar to get my Dunluce stamp. When I got there, it was just me and a regular down on the other end of the bar. Him and the bartender were so sweet though. The guy at the end of the bar even gave me a koozie, so that I’d have a momento of Four Aces. Like I said, so sweet. Although they looked at me like I had two heads when I asked for a passport stamp. She dug around for a bit looking for it, and eventually just told me I could have a sticker instead. Luckily the sticker wasn’t any bigger than what it was, or else it wouldn’t have fit on my page.

Four Aces is a typical dive bar, but it’s bright, and didn’t feel all dirty like some can. Plus like I said before, the locals were all nice so I didn’t feel weird at all, even when I was taking tons of pictures of everything. My only gripe is there was only one Dunluce offering on tap. I had hoped to be able to try a couple of their beers since it’s so far to get to in the first place. My beer was the amber, she didn’t know the name of it though. Judging from what I’ve researched, I want to say it’s the Dun ‘n’ Done.

Dunluce is brewed by a couple that lives in Superior, which the bartender kept telling me I could just drive to their house to see the actual brewery. I thought that might be weird to just show up at their house though, so I didn’t do that. But, another thing I’ve found in my research is that the beer is brewed with barely and hops grown on their families’ farms. That’s cute and makes the beer so much more special.

You can learn more about their story on their website, as well as see where all the bars are that offer their beer. I’d say it’s worth going to Superior for. The Four Aces Bar was cute, and Superior itself is cute.

Cheers!

    Also, we checked at Four Aces to make sure they have the stamp still. They did find it. I’m sorry that you weren’t able to get it that day!
