Museum of the Rockies announces a new history series geared toward adults called "Brews & The Big Sky: Montana Made, Montana Brewed." Patterned after MOR's popular summer Hops & History program, the new winter series pairs the history of Big Sky industry with Montana made brews.

Each presentation explores the unique growth and success of business and industry under the Big Sky  - presented by MOR Curator of History Michael Fox - to the accompaniment of an equally unique Montana beer. Brews and the Big Sky supports Museum of the Rockies History program.

The series will run from October 2015, through April 2016, (excluding December) and explores everything from the history of fly fishing with SIMMS; to Aviation with Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport and Summit Aviation; to skiing with Bridger Bowl and Big Sky Resort; to agriculture with Wheat Montana; to Montana tourism with Yellowstone National Park Lodges.

The inaugural Brews & The Big Sky program will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the museum's main lobby and will focus on transportation and distribution with Cardinal Distributing.

Admission for each Brews & The Big Sky event is $8 per person and includes a free souvenir glass and beer tasting. Participants must 21 and older. Space is limited, and tickets are required for all events and can be purchased in advance at
