“What started as a business plan at the University of Montana became Montana’s largest brewer. And now a beer to give back to the place it was born,” the video says.

A portion of the proceeds from the Griz Montana Lager will go back to the school, supporting various campus programs including alcohol education and awareness, and transportation, according to KGVO.

The University of Montana isn’t the first college to get its own official beer. New Mexico State University also has their own brew called Pistol Pete’s 1988, produced by Bosque Brewing Co. of Albuquerque.
