From ‘Random Thought’ to Reality, Ruby Valley Brew Thrives in Sheridan
"I can take off and go up any drainage here and go on a hike, go hunt, go fish, and just completely remove myself from day to day stresses." – Amanda LaYacona
After relocating from Ohio to the Ruby Valley, Amanda LaYacona and her husband drove through the small community of Sheridan, Montana, in search of a home to buy. Unexpectedly, she found herself interested in a commercial property too—a quaint building on Main Street.
LaYacona remembers the moment well: “I pointed to my husband, and I said, ‘Look at that beautiful building. A brewery needs to go in there.’ It was pretty much a random thought at the time. Lo and behold, this building ends up becoming available six months later.”
