KellerGeist recently reopened in the original location on Central and will continue serving the German beer and craft cocktails we've all grown to know and love.

The building where KellerGeist is located is one of the oldest in Great Falls, it was constructed in the 1880s by German immigrant William Albrecht to serve as a furniture warehouse.

Initially functioning as a furniture store until the 1960s, it later transitioned into an adult theater for approximately two decades before eventually being repurposed as a community theater.
