Despite Delays, New Billings Brewery Optimistic for Spring Launch

It’s not often, but every once in a while, I experience what some may refer to as a “blonde moment.”  This occurred a few weeks ago as I was driving by the big, white, steel-clad building on Zoo Drive. I’d been watching the construction progress over the past year or so and when I finally noticed the signage on the new building I thought to myself, “huh, I didn’t know Meadow Gold was moving.”

Fast forward to a couple of days ago. I mentioned it to a co-worker and she was like, “No. It’s not Meadow Gold (the dairy facility). It’s is a new brewery called Meadowlark.”  I felt pretty dumb, then headed over to the new business to find out more.

Construction began about 18 months ago.

It was early morning when I stopped by the new brewery on Monday and nobody was on-site at the moment. I hit the internet and found that Meadowlark Brewing is out of Sidney, MT. They’ve been brewing award-winning beer in Eastern MT since 2014. I caught up with owner Travis Peterson today (1/14) who laughed when I asked when they’re going to open. “That’s the question I get asked every day”, he said.
