Fall is in the air. As some brace for the winter cold, others are embracing the brisk cool evenings and warm daylight hours on the water. Fall fly fishing is really starting to pick up steam. And people from all over are making the pilgrimage to Missoula in the hopes of tight lines.

As we already know, Missoula is considered the Mecca of fly fishing. Ever since the movie "A River Runs Through It" was released in the 90s, people from all over the world have flocked to western Montana for some fishing. While they are here, chances are they partake in local flavors. Like our assortment of local craft beers. One diehard fly fisherman is taking advantage of both draws to the Missoula valley.

Comedian Hank Patterson has announced a guest bartender/pizza thrower appearance at Highlander Brewing on October 6th, 2022.

For those not familiar with Hank's work, he nearly broke the internet a few years back, when he released his "Yellowstone National Park Survival Guide" video on YouTube.

Hank has released many other hilarious videos over the years. Leading to what he might consider a quasi-celebrity status. So much so, that Hank has been invited to pour beer and help unveil the latest in the Highlander Beer arsenal of quality barley pop.

According to Hank's Facebook page

I'll be pouring beverages and tossin' pizza at Highlander Beer Thursday Oct. 6th 5pm till 8 or 9 or whatever. Highlander is releasing a new beer, we'll have giveaways and it'll be a fine time for all. Been a while, come say hi Missoula! -Hank

Hank even put together a hilarious video to promote the Missoula brewery.
