Hi, my name is Jerrad and I love craft beer. Although I'm not a big drinker, I do have one alcohol related habit, I'm a craft beer fanatic.

Some of the finest craft breweries in America will be attending the Wyo Brew Fest in the Cheyenne Depot Plaza this weekend. Brew Fest begins Friday at 5:00 p.m. and again Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

Over 30 different breweries will be on hand, and in my opinion, here are the top 10 you need to say hello to!

Cheyenne Brewing Company

Cheyenne's newest brewery! You may have already been there and sampled everything, but it's important to support the local guys at this event. Make sure to try something and give them some feedback. Recommended Beer: Jalepeno Jefe 

Another fine Cheyenne brewery. Most residents know Freedom's Edge Brewing Company and what they'll bring, but again I think it's important to support the local guys! Recommended Beer: There beer list is still TBD so I can't tell you yet! 

Coal Creek Tap

You know Laramie's best coffee comes from Coal Creek, but did you know they have a tap house next door? These guys do equally as good with coffee and craft beer, my two addictions. Recommended Beer: Coal Train

Altitude Brewing

Another Laramie brewery you need to try. Great place to grab a meal and a beer before a Pokes game, too! Recommended Beer: I'm Burning For You

Lander Brewing Company

I grew up in Fremont County and this is without a doubt the best County 10 has to offer. Recommended Beer: Atlantic City Gold 

Snake River Brewing

One more Wyoming brewery you should support. If you're in Jackson this is a great place to get a burger and a beer. Recommended Beer: Monarch Pilsner

GreenFlash Brewing

I was so excited one of my favorites from southern California will be here! Check out this San Diego brewery and make it worth there while for coming to Wyoming. Recommended Beer: West Coast IPA


Bend, Oregon's finest. It looks like these guys are bringing a good variety of beer for the weekend, and one of the only nitro's! Recommended Beer: Armory Nitro 

Horse & Dragon Brewing Company

These guys are from Fort Collins and in my opinion, one of the most underrated breweries there. If you're into unique beers, they'll have a couple fun ones to try! Recommended Beer(s): I can't pick one here. It's between Trina's Mint Chocolate Stout and Coffee Pale Ale. 

Broken Compass Brewing

I've been a fan of these guys out of Breckenridge for a couple years. Check out some of their high altitude brews. Recommended Beer: Coconut Porter

I purposely left out some of the bigger microbrews that you're probably already familiar with like New Belgium, Odelle Brewing, and Oskar Blues. Other great Wyoming brewers like Ten Sleep Brewing and Black Tooth Brewing out of Sheridan will be there too!
Even if you're not a huge beer fan, I hope you'll come out for the fun this weekend! And don't forget this is a major fundraiser to help preserve the Historic Union Pacific Depot.
