You wouldn't expect the most modern and sleek brewery in Montana to come out of Sidney, yet that's where you'll find Meadowlark.
My overall rating:
Everything about Meadowlark has a clean and sophisticated design to it. Their logo, their cans, their building: all modern and a little minimalist. They even made their own stamp for the passport because they’re that fancy. I got here about an hour before they closed, and haven’t had the opportunity to get back to Sidney, so the pictures are all dark night photos. Sorry about that.
The interior has the modern industrial look that’s popular right now, and they did a great job with it. The tap room is two stories, however the upstairs feels more like a restaurant area. There’s a large roof patio off the second floor though, which looked so pretty at night.
As far as beer goes, I tend to find Meadowlark fairly average, maybe a little above. I haven’t had one from them I was in love over, but they definitely brew good beers. Once at a brewfest I tried a mushroom beer they made, called Fungus Shui. I don’t know who can drink a full pint of that, but it was certainly quite interesting and fun to try. The Teddy Roosevelt American Badass is my favorite I’ve had of theirs. You can buy it in cans, which I recommend finding because it has a sweet label.

Meadowlark has a full menu, so come with an empty stomach. I got the fried pickles. which taste good, but I hate the spear kind. Fried pickle chips are the best fried pickles to me. I have a hard time eating the spears, they just slide right out of the breading.
This is perhaps my favorite picture from all my brewery trips. I was trying to just get the tap handles but then she stepped into the photo so I accidentally got her. I think it’s the cutest stinking photo.
Sidney, MT might not have much going on, but I can assure you this brewery is worth driving there for.
