Things have gone all topsy turvy in the Craft Beer world in the past year or so. Big Money has gotten involved, and with the purchase of Ballast Point last year by Constellation Brands for ONE BILLION DOLLARS, it seems that all of a sudden many people are only seeing dollar signs. So there are little guys (small/new craft brewers) out there now who want nothing more than to be big guys. On the other side of that, now there are big guys (regional craft brewers) who are working very hard to maintain their 'Little Guy' worldview and 'cred'. And sometimes you run into a brewer that's very happy to simply make great beer on a small scale and do it in the best way possible.
Enter Bonsai, where that ethos is built into everything they are, from the name forward. Graham Hart is the Owner and Brewer at this Whitefish, MT house party/brewery, and he's very happy to run his business exactly as it is. Will he get bigger? Most likely. Does he care? What's in store for him, and for Montana? Press play and see, and many thanks to the Happy Hour Gal for camera duty. Enjoy!
