I'm excited to once again emcee this incredible event this year, after getting to enjoy all the sampling during last year's event. Think about all the great restaurants, breweries, and distilleries in the Bozeman area- now think of getting to sample many of them all in one place. That's exactly what Warrior Taste Fest is. Plus, this is a major fundraiser for an incredible organization called Warriors & Quiet Waters (WQW).
Not only do they take post-9-11 veterans fly fishing and provide them with all the training and the gear, they are also doing ice fishing trips in Northern Montana, and hunting expeditions now as well.
There were 600-plus people inside the room at Warrior Taste Fest last year, including a record 38 vendors. Attendees got to vote on their favorite booth for food, beer, and cocktails. Who won each category last year?
Food: Seven restaurant in Bozeman.
Cocktails: Wild Rye Distillery
Beer: Bridger Brewing (check out the photo of their rep in the main photo above celebrating the big win)
Here's some photos from last year's event. Hats off to Sgt. Mack with Studio MacLeod for some incredible photos further below:
