Glacier National Park Shopping: 9 reviews and 12 photos
This little shop attached to the Swift Current Motor Inn & Cabins is a handy all purpose shop. The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. There is a big porch out front with chairs to sit on in case you want to eat/drink what you just bought and enjoy the great views. It is conveniently attached to the lobby of the Swift Current Motor Inn which comes in handy when it's raining and cold out. We would routinely go into the shop, pick up a few beers and a snack to enjoy in the lobby. It seemed a bit strange at first but we we not the only ones doing it.
Local beers we tried: 1) Big Hole Mythical White (Big Hole Brewing, Belgrade MT)-Lightly filtered golden ale w/ fluffy white head & coriander nose. Lightly spiced & fruity, this may lack the dryness of a true Belgian Grand Cru but at 7% it's certainly not overly sweet and is quite a thirst quencher. 2) Moose Drool Brown Ale (Big Sky Brewing, Missoula, MT)-Light bodied & fairly thin on flavor. Easy to drink but not overly tasty. 3) Scape Goat Pale Ale (Big Sky Brewing)-A lighter Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone. Not overly tasty but not bad either.
What to buy: We came with pretty much everything we needed but not everyone is so prepared and they have main food stuffs and all camping supplies. Of course, even the well-prepared can't have everything like ice cream (doesn't hold up well in the cooler) and of course, some local beers. Tokens for the shower are also sold here.
