Our Story

Our Story

Established in Billings, MT in July of 2007on historic Montana Avenue, Carter's Brewing is family owned and operated. The business was formed at about the same time that our son Carter James was born, hence the name. Construction and renovation of the brewery building which houses our taproom was done with help and support from an extended group of family and friends. We initially operated on a 7 bbl system that was pieced together from old dairy tankage with some modern additions until the Spring of 2012. In our first year we produced 475 bbls of beer in over 70 different styles.

Since then we have expanded and now run a 15 bbl MetalCraft brewhouse and produce beers in 70 different styles. We produced about 1500 bbls in 2015…

Michael Uhrich, owner and Brew Master, got his start in the brewing world by making beer at home. He received a homebrew kit from his father-in-law and let's just say the rest is history. Mike landed his first commercial brewing job at Yellowstone Valley Brewing Co in Billings in 2001 and was head brewer there until 2007. We feel that Mike's best beers have been brewed since he has started Carter's and that the sky is the limit for what is yet to come!!
