The Jackson Hole area is home to the first modern growler by local brewer Charlie Otto, awarding-winning microbrews and a strong craft-brewing heritage. Our beer and brewery selection are bound to please.

Local brewers have been making beer in Jackson Hole for some time now. In the past, nation distributors left Wyoming due to it being the least populated state in the U.S. Naturally, local brewers got creative, and what they came up with has got hop heads jumping for joy.

A lot of WY-made beers can only be found within the state. We like to think our beer is a lot like skiing in Jackson Hole: exceptional, delectable, and unlike anywhere else. Craft beer is everywhere in Jackson, with so many award-winning beers, someone’s got to make it clear.

Roadhouse BreweryJackson, WY

Roadhouse brewery came to be sometime in 2012 when home brewer Colby Cox met up with Jackson restaurateur Gavin Fine. Taking over a vast space above the Square and cramming in as much brewing equipment as possible, Roadhouse strives to “capture the soul of Jackson Hole in every beer they produce.” Some local favorites include The Walrus, a Hazy IPA with notes of Tangerine and Peaches, and the Trout Whistle American Pale Ale.

The BirdJackson, WY

Not a brewery, but still very important, The Bird is coveted by locals. Located roughly 5 miles south of town, The Bird boasts amazing and classic Wyoming views. With more than a dozen local beers on tap, they also make a mean burger and serve bottomless mimosas on Sundays. Impressive enough, they provide a free shuttle service to drive over indulgers back into town.
