Big Sky BBQ Festival at Marshall Mountain

Thank you for joining us at the Big Sky BBQ Festival, we raised nearly $8,000 for hungry Montanans!

The Big Sky BBQ Festival took place this year on June 22nd at Marshall Mountain during the Hammer Nutrition XC bike race. Local BBQ chefs cooked up mouthwatering BBQ, and there was beer, of course, from Big Sky Brewing Co. At the end of the Festival there was a live performance by The Hasslers. All proceeds from the Festival went to the Montana Food Bank Network. Free bus shuttle rides to Marshall Mountain were donated by Beach Transportation.

Due to an injury, Olympic Mountain Biker and Missoula native Sam Schultz wasn’t able to defend his 2x Hammer Nutrition Missoula XC title. But he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to cheer on everyone else at his hometown race. After the race Sam took the opportunity to address the crowd and talk about his partnership with the Montana Food Bank Network. He wants to help raise awareness for the 1 in 7 Montanans who are struggling with hunger, including over 46,000 children.

Check out Sam’s public service announcement for MFBN produced by Big Sky Brewing Company below.
