Our secret ingredient is the pride and craftsmanship added by dedicated people lucky enough to be called Montanans. Since our beginning, we have gone to the greatest of lengths to build one of the most efficient, sophisticated breweries around with one goal in mind: to produce the finest ales & lagers possible and serve them at their peak of freshness. Our beers are hand crafted and un-pasteurized and are brewed to levels of quality, which can only be achieved in the finest of breweries.
We are Helena’s only micro-distillery, proudly located in the former Montana Distillery and Bottling Warehouse at the north end of Helena’s main, historic gulch. We ferment, distill, and bottle on site, and use only Montana grown grains in our grain-based spirits.
Ten Mile Creek Brewery is a six barrel brewery located in the historic Last Chance Walking Mall. Our namesake “Ten Mile Creek” comes from our most important ingredient, water. The creek is in the beer. Ten Mile Creek gives us clean water that we use to produce hand crafted beer. Each batch has Montana grown barley and all other ingredients are sourced as local as possible.

The Old Fire Tower, called Guardian of the Gulch, is an official city landmark. This twenty-five foot fire tower was built in 1876 after a huge fire destroyed the downtown area. The octagonal cab was added in 1886 and last used in 1931. The Guardian of the Gulch was manned around the clock to keep watch over the city. If a fire was spotted, the alarm was sounded to alert the town to begin fighting a fire. The Guardian is the last remaining tower of the many that once existed in Helena. In fact it is one of only five of its kind left standing in the United States.
A hiking trail up to the tower is found off Cruse Avenue just across Broadway. A number of planting projects and weed control programs have created a hillside park for picnicking. The view from the hill encompasses Helena and the surrounding Scapegoat, Little Belt, and Sleeping Giant mountain ranges.
The State of Montana welcomes visitors to the Capitol. Visitors may tour the "People's House" on their own or may take advantage of official tours and presentations.
This stately Queen Anne style mansion has enjoyed both public and private roles in the history of Montana and its capital city. The history of the mansion is as much a history of the people who resided here as it is of a building.

It is the oldest intact piece of early Helena. The property is a strong link to the beginnings of a settlement here, offering insights into the lives of miners, the Chinese influence, building techniques of the time, and life of the common men and women who came here seeking their fortune.The buildings in Reeder's Alley are designated as an historic district listed in the National Register of Historic Places with the National Park Service.
