The following is the statement submitted to the Congressional Record:


Mr. President, this week, I have the honor of recognizing Philipsburg Brewing Company in Philipsburg, Montana. 

Philipsburg Brewing Company opened in August of 2012. What started as a four-person team has since grown into a 16-person operation. With the expansive growth in their business, their product now reaches almost the entire state. Recently, they were named the Best Brewery in Montana by Montana Mint.

While their business has expanded tremendously, it is their impact on the community that stands out most. Before they opened, the community did not have a gathering place. With the opening of the Philipsburg Brewing Company, folks now have a great atmosphere to be together with their friends, families and dogs.  

I congratulate Philipsburg Brewing Company on their tremendous success and thank them for their positive impact on the community. I look forward to seeing their business grow and visiting the brewery again soon.
