Helena Ales For Trails

September 8,, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Pioneer Park - Helena, MT
$5 – $75

Helena Ales for Trails strives to contribute to the community of Helena by raising funds for the Helena Trail System. 2022’s event resulted in our being able to give $15,000 towards the Old Shooting Range Restroom Accessibility Project and $20,000 towards the Limekiln Parking Area Realignment Project.

The event is led by a consortium of community leaders. We’re proud to partner with local businesses, city and county government, and private citizens to host and sponsor Helena Ales for Trails. In addition to the myriad of people involved in planning, Helena Ales for Trails utilizes over 150 volunteers on the day of the event. Over the first eleven years we’ve raised $181,333 for local trails.


VIP Pre Event Tickets: $65 – $75

Every year we strive to turn Helena Ales for Trails more and more toward a unique tasting experience. We invite breweries who share the vision of a beer tasting event that showcases limited production, small batch, hard to find, special reserve, artisan, experimental, barrel-aged, sour and other unique craft beers. While we recognize the place of flagship beers, we hope to showcase breweries who welcome the chance to “bring us their weird!” VIP is your best chance to experience the wide variety of beer showcased at Helena Ales for Trails.

To further enhance the VIP Event we limit the experience to 300 VIP participants (which includes event sponsors and brewers). VIP starts promptly at 3:30pm. At that time, participants can enjoy an unlimited number of beer tastings while interacting with brewers and snacking on complimentary appetizers prepared by Helena’s very own Rockstarr BBQ. VIP ticket sales are limited to 200 tickets, with the first 100 tickets selling for $65 and the second 100 tickets selling for $75. VIP tickets will only be available online via Eventbrite, starting at 9.00am (MST) on June 1st. In addition to the opportunity to taste up to 100 beverages, VIP tickets include a custom printed Helena Ales For Trails glass and 1 token that can be used for a 6oz. pour at the end of the VIP experience (5-9pm). The VIP Ticket also buys entrance into the main event. Tokens (1 token = 6 oz. pour) are available for sale at 2 tokens for $3.00.

* VIP has a history of selling out within just a few weeks.

Main Event Tickets: $25 – $35

Main Event tickets go on sale June 15th. They are available at participating Helena breweries for $25, while tickets last. Tickets are also available online at Eventbrite for $35. Tickets will be available at the gate the day of the event, if any remain. Each ticket includes a custom printed 2023 Helena Ales For Trails can glass along with 3 tokens which can be redeemed for three (3) 6 oz. pours. Food trucks include Rockstarr BBQ, Old Salt, and Habana 406. Live music by Dan Henry.
