Tiny’s Tavern in Billings, MT is a must stop for Broncos fans while traveling in Montana. Christopher Hart

Good morning, Broncos Country!

Over the past two weeks I was on a most excellent journey enjoying the great outdoors that spanned thousands of miles and several states including Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana. After a week of hiking and camping in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness in Custer Gallatin National Forest in Montana, me and my friends headed to Billings, MT in search of a good night’s rest and some much needed nourishment.

It was up to me to decide where we would eat for the night and with a quick search on my phone, I stumbled across a place called Tiny’s Tavern — which was praised for it’s tremendous menu and selection of quality brew at affordable prices. It was only a few blocks away from our lodge, so it was a logical destination to choose. What I didn’t know is that I was about to enter a Denver Broncos time machine filled with artwork and memorabilia spanning the course of the team’s entire history.

Before entering Tiny’s Tavern, you are greeted with a reverse Broncos logo that’s painted on the sidewalk outside of the main doors. Maybe it was sheer coincidence that I happened to choose and stumble across this place, but within moments of entering — I felt right at home and in a stroke of serendipity, believed I was meant to come here.

Tiny’s Tavern in Billings, MT is a top-notch Denver Broncos bar filled with tons of memorabilia.

Tiny’s Tavern has been a mainstay in the Billings community since 1983. Over the years, it has changed a bit — but one thing that has always been constant is its status as the city’s top Broncos bar. It’s a big destination for fans looking for tickets and a board is available in the bar for patrons and fans to find their way to see their beloved team live in Denver.

“If the Broncos aren’t playing in Denver, all the fans in town are here to watch the away game,” stated an employee at Tiny’s Tavern. “It’s always busy here. When the Broncos are playing at home, a lot of Montana goes to see them — but those who don’t come here.”

It’s easy to see why Broncos fans would fall in love with this place. You can sit down around the bar in a large array of orange and blue chairs with the names and numbers of some of the franchise’s all-time greats. Many of them are autographed by former players who have found their way to Tiny’s Tavern while out on their own travels and adventures. Helmets, footballs, magazines and a myriad of items are inscribed from players such as Goose Gonsoulin, Tyrone Braxton and even the Three Amigos. It’s a treasure trove of Broncos merchandise and Tiny’s Tavern exemplifies the spirit of Broncos Country to the max.

“Awesome food, a great atmosphere and the people are the best. Outside of Colorado — Montana is the heart of Broncos Country,” remarked one patron.

If you are ever in the Billings area and are in search of some great brew, delicious pub food and want to stumble across an awesome collection of Broncos history and memorabilia — be sure to check out Tiny’s Tavern!
