KettleHouse is proud to partner with a number of incredible non-profit groups. We are happy to have the opportunity to support some of the organizations that make our community so special.


KettleHouse Community Unite


Our Community Unite program is an ongoing series of events in support of a rotating selection of non-profits. We host pint nights at our taproom in which a dollar from every draft poured is donated to the featured organization.


Collaboration Brews


We brew a number of collaboration brews each year, in which a portion from the proceeds support a few of our favorite causes. Some of these include:


Pearl Jam & Montana Pool Service: KettleHouse has released two different limited-release 16oz cans in support of Montana Pool Service (MPS), the MPS Pool Ale, and the MPS Pilsner. Founded by Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, of Big Sandy, MT, MPS builds world-class skate parks in rural and isolated communities.


National Forest Foundation: KettleHouse and the National Forest Foundation (NFF) partnered up to form the Montana Forest Fund. The MT Forest Fund invests into priority restoration and recreation-based projects that provide meaningful and lasting improvement to the 17 million acres throughout Montana’s National Forests. KettleHouse has a permanent tap handle in the taproom, dedicated to supporting the MT Forest Fund. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from all of the KettleHouse hard seltzer packages is also donated.


Big Sky Documentary Film Festival: KettleHouse releases a special 16oz can as the proud beer sponsor of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF), the premier venue for non-fiction film in the American West. Each year, the BSDFF showcases select entries of international, national, and local documentary films. It brings stories from around the world to our beautiful mountain town, supporting the people who create documentary film, and creating vibrant events that gather our engaged community, and expand knowledge and conversation around issues that matter. The annual 10-day event takes place each February in downtown Missoula, Montana.


Ducks Unlimited: KettleHouse brews a draft-only, seasonal Winter Lager in support of Ducks Unlimited (DU). The leader in wetlands conservation, DU restores, protects and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.


Pink Boots Society: Each year, KettleHouse partners with participating breweries to brew a draft-only beer in support of Pink Boots Society. This non-profit aims to assist, inspire and encourage women and non-binary individuals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry to advance their careers through education.


StacheStrong: StacheStrong is a non-profit devoted to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Defeating brain cancer and improving the quality of patients’ lives is their daily focus. Each year, KettleHouse brews a draft-only, single malt and single hop beer called Smash the Stache in support of this organization.


Montana Brewers Association: The Montana Brewers Association (MBA) was created in 2008 and is a statewide association of breweries organized for the purpose of promoting the production and sales of the freshest and highest quality Montana made beers. Each year, KettleHouse, along with participating breweries, releases a draft-only beer called Peaks to Prairie, using Montana-grown ingredients, in support of the MBA.


KettleHouse supports a number of other organizations as well through monetary, in-kind donations, or volunteerism. Here are just a few of those amazing partners. Feel free to click the links to learn more about them!


Blackfoot Challenge: The Blackfoot Challenge coordinates efforts to conserve and enhance the natural resources and rural way of life in the Blackfoot watershed for present and future generations.

They educate, train, and activate organizers, individuals, groups, organizations, institutions, and businesses to invest in interrupting racism, bigotry, and prejudice whenever encountered.


Hopa Mountain: Hopa Mountain is a non-profit organization based in Bozeman, MT that invests in rural and tribal citizen leaders who are improving education, ecological health, and economic development.

UM AIGPI Loan Fund: The American Indian Governance and Policy Institute (AIGPI) brings the Montana University System’s research and service resources to work with tribes in Montana to address the core causes of socioeconomic challenges in health-related issues on reservations by providing the necessary support for evidence-informed tribal policymaking. The AIGPI Loan Fund assists AIGPI students with loans at University of Montana.
