About Angry Hank’s Microbrewery

Angry Hank’s got its name from a family friend, the grumpy one that most people have hanging around—the one who is always telling you how to do things, when to do them, and why. He just wanted you to grow up right, like that grandfather who had a gruff way of letting you know he cared.

Angry Hank’s was founded in an old gas station in Billings, Montana. The idea was simple: create a fun place to simply have a beer. We were tired of everyone staring at TVs. Have a beer and talk to one another. Here’s a place to reconnect with the person sitting across from you and here’s a beer to help you.

As the business grew, we looked to expand. Eight blocks away, a 1916 carriage house sat vacant, and the building was purchased in July 2011 and remodeled into a brewing facility and taproom. We opened a second location June 2012.

Angry Hank’s centralized operations at the carriage house in the center of downtown Billings. The move increased the ability to focus on brewing. Hank’s began to can Street Fight and Anger Management in the fall of 2014.

There is no mission. We don’t want to take over the world. We just want to have a fun job and a fun place to have a pint. While keeping taproom patrons happy with hand-crafted brews, Angry Hank’s beer is distributed to bars and restaurants across south-central Montana.

We keep it simple at Hank’s. Our beer is made with water sourced from the largest free-flowing river in the country, yeast grown in-house, and Montana-grown barley malted in Great Falls. Hank’s hops come from Washington’s Yakima Valley.

Everything is done in-house, from the milling to the packaging.
