Our Taproom

The taproom is an inviting space to spend a few hours after a long day of work or play, to meet up with friends, conduct some casual business, or spend a few minutes on your own enjoying the delightful beers from our brewery.

During the summer enjoy the mountain views from our patio and in the winters take in the views of snowcapped mountains surrounding you.


Handcrafted in Columbia Falls, Montana

Backslope Brewing Standards

The Pilgrim Blonde

ABV 5% IBU 15

The Pilgrim braved an arduous journey across the Atlantic, through the Great Plains, and over the Great Divide to settle in Columbia Falls. A smooth blonde ale made primarily with European Malt and Hops. An easy introduction to craft beer for the novice, but enough malt body and balance to satisfy seasoned craft beer drinkers.


Crooked Wind IPA

ABV 6.5% IBU 65

Loaded with a healthy amount of kettle hops, and boosted with copious quantities of finishing hops and dry hops. A powerful aroma assaults your nose with hints of citrus and pine on the front end, and a bracing bitterness lingers in your mouth through the strong, clean, finish. A firm malt backbone balances with a blend of several of our favorite American hops to make this India Pale Ale a Columbia Falls favorite.


Dr. Randolph’s All-Day Porter

ABV 5% IBU 20

This beer is brewed in honor and homage of one of Darin’s original brewing compatriots, Dr. Scott Randolph, who always appreciated the balance of a well-crafted Porter. Malty enough to warm the bones on cool fall day, but easy enough on the palate to be an all-day drinker any time of year. With a delicate balance of European hops to counter the rich malts.  Cheers to the Doctor.


Sun Cut Stout

ABV 6% IBU 40

Jet-black, rich, roasty, and buttressed with just enough caramel and wheat malts to make it surprisingly creamy and smooth. A blend of American and European hops balance the strong malt character of this American style stout.
