BOZEMAN, Mont. -

The Bozeman City Commission gave the green light Monday night to approve a new distillery looking to open in town.

Brady Wiseman is partnering with the owners of the Bozeman Brewing Company to open Montana Hardwater Distillery in the Northeast part of town.

In addition to getting that approval as a business that sells and serves alcohol, the commission gave the thumbs up to some proposed parking lot details.

Wiseman tells us he's excited to join the booming Montana distilling and brewing business.

"There's plenty of room for more producers and more product. Montanans do like to have a drink, so there's a lot of consumption in the state. Plus we have a whole bunch of tourists visiting us year-round and we're hoping to be able to serve then as well."

Montana Hardwater hopes to open by next spring.
