Beards, Brews, and Bikes is a motorcycle rally in Butte, MT, July 19th-21st. The rally will include a headline (ticketed) concert. This year our headliner is Little Texas on the night of Thursday the 19th. The rally will feature other bands and entertainment, outdoor pool tables, food, vendors, a beard competition, a bike show and shine, poker runs, loop runs, a motorcycle rodeo and more. For those who want a great photo with their bike, we can offer that to!
Fundraising - 100% of all proceeds generated via the beard and bike competition will go to first responders. We have also added to our charity fundraising. We will hold several events to not only raise awareness to the Montana fire season and the toll it takes on our firefighters and resources, but we will be collecting donations to aid these heroes in the coming fire season.
