It was sunshine and blue skies for attendees at the 14th annual Bigfork Brewfest this past weekend.

The festival features breweries lined up and down Electric Avenue in Bigfork to highlight the best of Montana craft beer. This year, event organizer Bigfork Innovations Group said they had 27 breweries from around the state attend.

The event is BIG’s ‘biggest’ fundraising event of the year. BIG helps fund many different Bigfork events, organizations and projects.

Funds raised from Bigfork Brewfest 2022 went towards the Bigfork Whitewater Festival, Bigfork High School Swim, Bigfork Playhouse Children's Theater, Bigfork ACES, Ferndale Fire Department and Bigfork High School Cave Club among other local organizations.

The funds raised from this year are still being totaled, as well as votes for the People's Choice Award for favorite beer. To see who won, check in with Bigfork Brewfest's Facebook page.
