Like so many other events, Ales for Trails was forced to go "virtual" in 2020 because of COVID-19. This year, the fun event returns to ZooMontana and 2021 marks their 20th anniversary. It's Friday, September 10th and gates open at 5 pm. Live music this year from Counting Coup and there will be Silent Disco and Giant Beer Pong.

Oh! Don't forget the beer. Attendees can try 50 different beers, ales and seltzers from local and regional breweries.
