Black Star Beer Barter


Would you tattoo a giant red bronco on your back or fork over your precious taxidermy water buffalo? Prove it at The Black Star Barter!


Black Star beer invites you to participate in the Black Star Barter on Saturday, February 4th, 2012 at the Great Northern Brewery in Whitefish, Montana. Please join us and bring any beer-worthy object or talent that you think is worth a year’s supply of Black Star! We’re entertaining all kinds of crazy offers in exchange for 52 cases of Black Star beer. Contestants will be judged on: creativity, awesomeness, thoughtfulness and enthusiasm.  Barter items must be present in order to win and there will only be one winner so barter wisely beer-lovers!


Contestants may register their barter submission at the Great Northern Brewery on Saturday, February 4th beginning at 11 a.m. MST until just before the start of the barter at 4:30 p.m. MST. The Black Star barter will begin immediately after the Whitefish Winter Carnival parade at 5 PM so head over to Railway & Central Avenue directly after to enjoy local food trucks, music, beer gardens and barter entertainment!


If the judges choose you as the ultimate barterer you’ll be walking away with 365 days of pure liquid gold; the greatest prize ever conceived by man, Black Star beer.



We’d love to hear from you!  You can email us at or feel free to stop by the brewery at 2 Central Ave., Whitefish, MT.   We have a slew of pictures from the previous Barter and Whitefish Winter Carnival weekend too.  Give us a shout and we would be happy to fulfill any requests. All media and press who would like to receive video footage/photos and more information on the event should contact Ashley Garver or call 800-732-1003.
