On a warm summer day, after a good hike, nothing tastes better than a cold beer. Luckily, here in Jackson we have three well established breweries to help you find the perfect draught.
The Snake River Brewery is the oldest brewery in the state of Wyoming, celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year! The Snake River Brewery has won “Small Brewery of the Year” twice during the Great American Beer Festival. They are known for their Pale Ale, but don’t stop there- Snake River Brewery is always putting out new and interesting beer, allowing their brewers to have creative licenses. The Jenny Lake Lager is smooth and flavorful and you won’t find a smoother stout than the Zonker. Head over to the BrewPub for lunch or dinner too! They have a great kitchen staff and their Buffalo chili is huge and delicious!
Next, head over to Thai Me Up, which is also the home of Melvin Brewing Company. Opening in 2009, it didn’t take long for Melvin to also win “Small Brewery of the Year” at the Great American Beer Festival in 2015. Known for their wide variety of Pale Ales with all the various hops you could ask for. This summer they are rotating through unique new imperial IPAs on a monthly basis. So, head to Thai Me Up for everything from curries to Asian inspired pulled pork sandwiches to fried rice. The IPAs and the thai food are a match made in heaven!
Roadhouse is the newest edition to the Jackson Brewing scene. Started in 2012, Roadhouse is looking to make something for everyone. They have several Pilsners, a West Coast IPA, Hazy IPA, a couple Golden Ales to the more interesting Honey Basil Kolsch to a Sweet Potato Porter. Roadhouse has a bright and cozy taproom to do some sampling of all their varieties, or you can head across the Town Square to their Eatery that just opened in this past year. Open for lunch and dinner, Roadhouse, like its beer selection, has everyone covered. From a good old beer pretzel for starters to a Hen of the Wood Mushroom, Flat Breads, sandwiches for lunch and Bone Marrow Brulee for dinner.
So come to Jackson, appreciate nature and enjoy the beer that follows!
