Lander

The Lander Brewing Company began brewing beer in the late 1800’s in a small facility just across the Popo Agie River from its current Main Street location. A thriving operation for many years, Lander’s first brewery was forced to cease production due to The Prohibition Act. The brewery was re-established 120 years later and Lander residents and visitors can once again enjoy the delicious taste of fresh, locally made craft beer.

Laramie

Located in downtown Laramie, we are dedicated to creating unique handcrafted fare paired with our own selection of award-winning brews. Our menu is broad and our chefs work hard to come up with regular specials that surprise and delight.
Our atmosphere is elegant yet casual. The perfect mix for Laramie Wyoming.

Cheyenne

Brewing beer as a hobby quickly turned into a passion.  We opened our doors in February 2012 and have been constantly growing and learning ever since.  Being able to make, drink, and sell our beer, not necessarily in that order, has been quite the adventure!
Conceived and started by Adam Niebling, Shane O’Keefe and Tim Moore, this is truly a family affair. Adam and Shane are happily married to Tim’s daughters, Candice and Jessica. We have expanded our horizons with our sister company Colorado Brewing Systems, located in Wellington CO and upon that have handed over the reigns of the brewery to our very trusted and appreciated taproom staff in Cheyenne WY.
Our brewery is family friendly, so bring the kiddos!  We also allow dogs as long they are kept on a leash and at your table.  From our family to yours, we invite you to spend a few hours with us in Cheyenne enjoying some pints or flights!

Jackson Hole

At Roadhouse we strive to capture the soul of Jackson Hole in every beer we produce. Living deep isn't just a dream, it’s a passionate pursuit everyday. For those of us lucky enough to call Jackson “home,” and for those just visiting, there is a common thread that binds us - a desire to satisfy our primal adventurous spirit. To seek, to explore, to find, and to engage.
Roadhouse Brewing Co, with its brand new state-of-the-art 30bbl system and bottling line, is garnering flavor inspirations daily with the Re(fine)ry, a new concept in the culinary arts spearheaded by Gavin Fine of Fine Dining Restaurant Group.
Meanwhile, across the way, is the studio of Bland Hoke, artist, metal worker and designer. Visitors and locals will be fasciated by the bold creativity happening here, as they stop in to see artisanal sausages and ice creams being made, craft beers aging in whiskey and wine barrels, and the flying sparks of sculptures coming to life. We at Roadhouse are energized by the ability to bring together such artistry and craft into the Jackson community.

Jackson

Welcome to Melvin Brewing! This is the beginning of your wonderful new, Kung Fu friendship between our brew family and all beer lovers alike. Talk of Melvin began on the West coast — but the heart of Melvin started beating in the small town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. With big ideas and even bigger barrels of hops, Melvin now takes off in the hands of Owner, Jeremy Tofte, and head Production Brewer, Dave Chichura.
We started in the back of a Thai restaurant on a 20 gallon system in 2010 and upgraded to a 100-gallon system in 2011. Now we brew on a 30 barrel system with big shiny tanks and centrifuges and things. Fancy that.

Jackson

Our beginning seemed pretty simple. We bought an old cinder block building that was previously the base of operations for a Coca-Cola distributor. It seemed to be the perfect spot for Wyoming’s first brewpub. We wanted an open industrial look, with lots of light and exposed steel beams. The brewing equipment and wood burning oven would be our artwork. 
The concept was to create a restaurant and brewing space that was open to our customers, to draw guests into the process of making beer. We wanted a simple and unpretentious neighborhood watering hole for locals to gather and Jackson Hole tourists to taste beer from the Great State of Wyoming. From the beginning we were determined to create a brewpub building that was both excellent in style architecturally and offered excellent food and beer. We felt strongly about the quality of workmanship in the restaurant, from its beautiful windows and ceiling to its mahogany curved bar.

NATURAL ATTRACTIONS

Enjoy Nature

Yellowstone National Park

Old Faithful, named by members of the 1870 Washburn Expedition, was once called “Eternity’s Timepiece” because of the regularity of its eruptions. Despite the myth, this geyser has never erupted at exact hourly intervals, nor is it the largest or most regular geyser in Yellowstone. It does, however, erupt more frequently than any other of the large geysers.
This view of the Old Faithful Geyser is captured from a webcam inside the visitor education center. At this location, time is not measured by a clock, but by this geyser. Visitors make decisions on when to eat, take a tour, interact with exhibits, or watch the visitor center film based on Old Faithful's next eruption.

Devils Tower

The Tower is an astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the prairie surrounding the Black Hills. It is considered sacred by Northern Plains Indians and indigenous people. Hundreds of parallel cracks make it one of the finest crack climbing areas in North America. Devils Tower entices us to learn more, explore more and define our place in the natural and cultural world.

Moose

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.

Thermopolis

Over colorful terraces along the Big Horn River at Thermopolis flows water from mineral hot springs. More than 8,000 gallons flow over the terrace every 24 hours at a constant temperature of 128 degrees Fahrenheit. The park has a free bath house where the water is maintained at 104 degrees for therapeutic bathing. Hot Springs has 6.2 miles of universally accessible trails and hiking trails. It is a full-service park with comfort stations, a volksmarch trail, fishing, and a boat ramp. One of the reservable group picnic shelters is located here. Hot Springs is a day-use park.

Kemmerer

Some of the world's best preserved fossils are found in the flat-topped ridges of southwestern Wyoming's cold sagebrush desert. Fossilized fishes, insects, plants, reptiles, birds, and mammals are exceptional for their abundance, variety, and detail of preservation. Most remarkable is the story they tell of ancient life in a subtropical landscape.

Fishing Cone is a hot spring located in the West Thumb Geyser Basin. The Folsom party probably saw it in 1869, but the first recorded description of Fishing Cone comes from the 1870 Washburn Expedition.

Yellowstone National Park

The entrance to Shoshone Cavern, high up near the summit of Cedar Mountain, overlooking the Shoshone River and the Cody entrance road to Yellowstone National Park, is very picturesque. It is the sort of cave opening that one reads about in story books, being located among rugged cliffs, with pine trees scattered here and there among the rocks. The entrance is about 20 feet wide and 6 feet high, and is in a fractured zone in a massive bed of limeston

Yellowstone's Midway Geyser Basin

Old Faithful may be more famous, but the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring is the most photographed thermal feature in Yellowstone. That's because of its crazy-bright colors and enormous size.  Extremely hot water travels 121 feet from a crack in the Earth to reach the surface of the spring.  

The third largest spring in the world, the Grand Prismatic is bigger than a football field at 370 feet in diameter. A gridiron is 360 feet long and 160 feet wide.
The hot spring has bright bands of orange, yellow, and green ring the deep blue waters in the spring. The multicolored layers get their hues from different species of thermophile (heat-loving) bacteria living in the progressively cooler water around the spring. And the deep blue center? That’s because water scatters the blue wavelengths of light more than others, reflecting blues back to our eyes

Approximately 12 miles north of Rock Springs

The Killpecker Sand Dunes Open Play Area is part of the Greater Sand Dunes Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The Open Play Area is open to motor vehicle use. Non-motorized recreational activities, such as hiking, hunting, and horseback riding are allowed during this period. The Open Play Area includes one developed campground, which is located about 32 miles from Rock Springs. It is a non-fee area and is ADA accessible. It also includes a vault toilet and fire rings. ACECs are areas within the public lands where special management attention is required to protect and prevent irreparable damage to important resources. Important resources in this area include wildlife, cultural, scenic, and wilderness

Yellowstone National Park

Mammoth Hot Springs are a must-see feature of Yellowstone National Park in part because they’re so different from other thermal areas in the area. This is largely because limestone is a relatively soft type of rock, allowing the travertine formations to grow much faster than other sinter formations. It has been described as looking like a cave turned inside out.

 

WINERIES

Enjoy there or take a bottle (or two) home with you.

Jackson


The winery sits next to Spring Creek in Jackson, with beautiful views of the Grand Tetons. Founded in 2009, with its first vintages of Chardonnay and signature Rendezvous Red Blend bottled in 2011, the winery now produces approximately 2,500 cases of wine annually. Our family-owned, boutique winery produces its wine by hand, using traditional methods and the help of many of friends to crush, ferment and bottle our award-winning wines.  During his internship in 2005 at a small family winery in the Napa Valley, our vintner, Anthony Schroth, noticed how similar their layout was to his family’s property in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This set off a passion for him to one day start a wine business with his family in his hometown

Big Lost Meadery and Brewery is more than a company, it is an ideal. To understand this concept though, we must first look to the Big Lost Cabin. Legend has it that there is a cabin in the middle of nowhere in Western Wyoming. A place lost to the tenors of modern society, a warm fire is always burning to welcome the party. A leaky roof, a crusty old bar keep, a door that only pretends to lock, this run down cabin is a mecca for those lost in the wilderness. With the likes of the Wild Man, the Crazy Woman, the Island Gypsy, the Forgotten Philosopher always at the cabin, many legendary folks frequent this place and can tell you tales beyond belief. From ancient Pillagers of the north to tropical maidens lost to time, they all remember our basic natures. We have never been to the cabin and we don’t know exactly where it is located, but we have faith it exists. We have recreated a picture of the cabin from legends we have heard, visible on all of our labels. This cabin is the focal point for all of our various characters. While their stories and legends range throughout the expanse of the world, all of them find their way to this mystical cabin at some point. After Getting Their Pillage on they head to the cabin to interact and have a roaring good time, forever being lost to the rest of the dominion of men.
