Snake River Brewing: At Snake River Brewing, the concept was to create a restaurant and brewing space that was open to their customers, to draw guests into the process of making beer. They 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 they were determined to create a brewpub building that was both excellent in style architecturally and offered excellent food and beer. They felt strongly about the quality of workmanship in the restaurant, from its beautiful windows and ceiling to its mahogany curved bar.
They decided to plan for quality, substance and longevity. They knew that Jackson Hole’s citizens would judge us on the quality of our beers and food. Our mission statement became- “The world doesn’t need another beer, but a better beer!”
