MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — The Montana State University Billings History Club, Phi Alpha Theta, will have one of its popular “Brats, Burgers & Beer” fundraisers Sunday, Sept. 25 from 4-7:30 p.m. at the Yellowstone Valley Brewing, 2123 1st Avenue North.



The food and fun will be a part of the 11th annual Tuney Awards, a celebration of local music sponsored by The Billings Outpost. 


Featured among the food fundraiser will be hamburgers, the MSUB History Club’s famous Black Widow Brats (bratwurst baptized in the award-winning Black Widow Stout ale before being barbecued), with all the trimmings. The food will be prepared by professors and students from the MSU Billings history department. The burgers and brats are $4; the good times, collegiality and camaraderie are priceless.


Proceeds will help fund the MSUB History Club’s trip to the annual Phi Alpha Theta Northwest Regional Student Conference next spring.


The MSU Billings History Club has members of various majors on campus who have a strong interest in history.
