Coming Soon to Miles City, Montana
Brew to Share, Drink to Build
Otium is a Latin word for leisure time spent eating, playing, and drinking. Craft beer is a perfect complement to quality leisure activities. Dustin and Hannah Strong are opening Otium Brewing in November 2020. They say the plan started forming back in 2012 when Dustin returned home from work and declared “I want to start a brewery.” He hadn’t yet brewed a single batch of homebrew. “Over the next 8 years we brewed and brewed at home, philosophized about our vision for a brewery (yes, over pints), and when the opportunity presented itself, we took the plunge and started building Otium Brewing.”
Dustin and Hannah are excited to use their brewery as a platform to share great beer and grow the community. “We are committed to sourcing 90% of our ingredients from Montana, both traditional ingredients (malt and hops) as well other adjuncts (pumpkins, coriander, berries).” The Montana brewery community has great camaraderie Hannah says. “We have received valuable advice and training from our friends at Beaver Creek Brewery and Thirsty Street Brewing Co. and brewers we never met have even reached out!”
Otium plans to start with four flagship beers: Honey Cream Ale, IPA, Irish Red Ale, and an American Stout. So be sure to make time for a beer stop next time you are in Miles City!
