Location and contact


Wind river brewing co. is one of a few hundred small craft brewing companies operating in the country. We are carefully brewing beer on a 20 barrel (620 gallon) system. Just to put our size in perspective budweiser brewery will spill more beer in one day than we can brew in one day. Wind river brewing co. uses only the finest quality ingredients in the brewing process. Many of these ingredients are imported from the U.K. & germany. The water we use in the brewing process from our local glacier fed lake is very special, testing 98.9% pure, we do not alter or adjust the chemistry of the water at all. All the beers we produce are ales. The majority of these ales are english style ales. We try to brew our ales true to style w/ a bit of our own style added for distinction.
Blonde Ale
Wind river blonde ale is a pale golden beer that is lively, light & refreshing. It is the first bere to be packaged in a can in the state of wyoming.
Buckin' Bitter
There are three different recognized styles of bitter ale: ordinary bitter, best bitter & extra special bitter (esb). The only noticeable difference in these styles is the level of hop presence. Buckin' bitter is an ordinary style bitter. Brewed w/ crystal & caramel malted barley this beer features moderate sweetness & a noticeable hop character. Slightly bitter w/ a bit of floral hop aroma this is a good introduction to the more robust english ale styles we brew.
Adventure Amber Ale
An american amber ale style beer. This amber ale is full of sweet malty flavors & a heavy dose of complex hop flavors & aromas. Deep copper in color. Because this is an american amber ale style beer it features strong american citrus & floral hop aromas.
Wyoming Pale Ale (Wpa)
A hybrid pale ale as big as wyoming! An extremely large dose of american, english & special northwest hops makes this brew the hoppiest of them all. This beer is dry hopped which adds a copious amount of hop aroma & resinous sweetness to its beautiful malty body. 7.2% A.B.V.
Gayle Force Pale Ale
English pale ale style beer. Similar to the bitter just a larger amount of the same malted barley is used. The hops we use in this beer are imported from england & added in generous amounts throughout the boil to create a complex hop profile. This slightly sweet beer finishes w/ a very refreshing hop presence.
Not the "darkest" beer we brew but the strongest. T.K.O. Is an old ale style beer pushing barley wine status. Tko is brewed using malted barley from england, germany, & the U.S.. this ale uses more than double the malted barley we use in the production of the kolsch. The result is a very sharply alcoholic but surprisingly smooth ale. Many caramel, candy like & slightly roasted malt flavors come through fairly dry & slightly balanced by moderate hop bitterness.
Sheppards Weiss Beer
A south german style hefeweizen (with wheat) this malted wheat based ale has a cloudy straw color appearance. This is an unfiltered wheat ale featuring hints of banana & clove flavors & aromas. These interesting flavors are a byproduct of the weinstephan yeast strain we use to brew this beer. Served w/ lemon or orange wedge.
Mongo Mango Wheat Beer
Mangos grown in a secret location in pinedale are infused into our weiss beer, making a very refreshing, surprisingly fruity wheat ale.
Raspberry Wheat
Another twist on the weiss beer. Raspberry infused for a bright refreshing summer quencher.

Went here with low expectations but was pleasantly surprised. The burger I ordered was actually cooked how it was ordered ( hardly ever happens). The service is so-so, lots of staff rushing around, but their system seems overly complicated and even a simple beer order...More

Loved my experience in this brew pub. Our waiter was super. Ordered a burger, sweet potato fries, and house beer... all outstanding. TV screens showed baseball games for those that were interested, but noise level was down which made conversation easy. Perfect place to unwind...More

We dined at Wind river brewing during a weekend stay in Pinedale. I highly recommend the flight of beers, as they have several excellent varietals. The mango beer was amazing! The food was average pub fare.

Today we went for a scenic drive and along the way decided to head to Pinedale, WY. Nice little town and this is a great brewery where we stopped to have a beer and a bite to eat. Great find.

Fun place to go if you're a bit rowdy on a weekend evening, we only went once, so it may be quiet or other days of the week. It was hard to hear each other at the table, though the food was pretty good.

We stopped here for dinner after a long day of traveling from Yellowstone. The food was amazing. Best food we have had in our trip so far. Definitely recommend the steak sandwich. Service was fast and efficient. Good prices.
