In the morning, take the East Side Highway instead of U.S 93. It leaves Hamilton directly at Bitter Root Brewing and goes directly to Stevensville, where you'll find one of Montana's newest breweries, Blacksmith Brewing, on main street of Stevensville, Montana's oldest community.

You'll probably have some extra time before the taproom opens at 3 pm, which you could spend fishing the Bitterroot River along the way or visiting Fort Owen State Park and St. Mary's Mission, "where Montana began," right there in Stevensville.
Then, back on U.S. 93 to Missoula. Check into a motel and spend the evening enjoying three of Montana's oldest and largest breweries--Bayern Brewing, Big Sky Brewing and KettleHouse Brewing, which has two locations, and one of the newest, Draught Works. That's a lot of microbrewing tasting in one day, so you might consider the option of staying in Missoula two nights to thoroughly enjoy it all. (For detailed directions on finding them go to the Missoula Brewery Trail section of this website.)
