The Bierstube, Whitefish Whitefish’s number-one après bar is The Bierstube, known to locals as “The ’Stube.” Located in the upper village at the resort, this timber-lodge bar is usually packed by four each afternoon with patrons spilling out onto the patio during the spring. You’ll encounter a good mix of locals and rowdy Calgarian tourists, while you sway to local rock and blues band on the small stage. Every Wednesday at 5:30, stop by for a free beer and the Frabert Clod of the Week Award, given to the mountain employee or visitor who’s committed the biggest blunder in the past seven days. And if you’re a first-timer, be sure to ask for your complimentary souvenir ring. 3659 Big Mountain Road, Whitefish; (406) 862-1993
Packed by four every afternoon, The Bierstube (or just "The 'Stube") is the premiere après scene in all of Whitefish.
