Last stop of the evening. I almost did not stop in, but I am glad I did. Home of what USED to be the best beer in Wyoming (Zonker) before Melvin came along. They had 10ish tap beers and offered flights of six. Pretty busy, but seats were available at the bar. Helpful service, attentive and knowledgeable. I managed to dump one of my tasters on the bar, and he happily replaced it and helped me clean up my mess. Did not try the food, but heard good things. All in all, this was my favorite Jackson stop. The beer was a tad better at Melvin, but the experience was better here.
Visited on vacation and had the flight of the 8 beers on tap including some light snacks. My only complaint is the lack of unique beer selections - all were pretty mild that I saw available. Staff kind and helpful
Stopped in on my way through town yesterday. Spacious interior split on two levels, and between 21+ and family seating. We sat outside on the small patio, got some food and a few samples. Samples were $2/5oz, and offered on all 8 of the taps they had. Beers were fine -- nothing to write home about, but I’d be happy to drink a pint anytime. Food was okay. No idea how it compares to the rest of the area since we were just passing by, but pretty solid place overall and you could do a lot worse for a brewpub in a resort town.
Snake River Brewing is a large brewpub on the fringe of downtown Jackson. The place is really divided up inside, with a busy host stand, bar area to the right, mezzanine for dining, and another dining area (I think; it’s pretty fragmented). It’s all white painted metal beams with light colored wood flooring and furniture. There were some small TVs in the bar area, so we could watch the Women’s World Cup semifinal. They had 8 house drafts plus 1-2 on cask. The beers were average, and so was the food. The beer is a good price at $5/pint, but the food is overpriced for what it is. Common for the area, I guess. The server was friendly but overwhelmed, and then their credit card system went down for 20 minutes or so as we tried to leave. So that part was kind of a pain. Having gone to Thai Me Up the day before, there was no way this place was going to measure up to that standard. But it’s a solid brewpub, maybe a little dated in terms of philosophy and decor, but there’s also a reason they’ve been successful for a long time.
For only living two hours away, this was my first time coming here and it was well worth it. Nice clean industrial look with local artwork. Had 8 beers on tap with several being limited or seasonal. The beer prices were good, $5 a pint, but it was more like an 18 ounce serving, which is great. Had a sampler of all 8 that was a good value. The beer was fresh and their menu was up to date (4 days old) I loved that they were brewing while we were eating. It gave the restaurant a nice aroma. The waiters were attentive and we got our food fairly fast. The food was excellent. Came out hot and wasn’t greasy (had the fish and chips). Definitely, better than what I was expecting. Stopping here, made my trip up to Idaho and back well worth it.
Got here for a lunch with my wife and son. The place has that 80’s feel to it. We walked up the stairs where you pass right by the nice looking brewhouse. Looking around I like how they include lots of local artwork with custom ceramic tiles and all of the pictures of groups of people everywhere. The food was decent but not noteworthy as was the beer. The help was friendly but the overall atmosphere was lacking as areas seemed to be under construction and sort of in-process and this the feeling that we were out of place and possibly in the way.
Semi-industrial feel. We sat on the roof deck, which is unheated and thus not open for seating at all hours. Ten beers on tap, eight in the sampler, "safe" styles which I enjoyed except for the malt liquor. Nothing darker than pale brown at the time. Pub grub. Good service. Cheap growler fills, only $8 for most, I had to ask our waitress if that was for two quarts or one (as in Florida); she didn’t know but got an empty growler to show us.
Nice big venue. Modern, good service, good food, pretty good beer. Prices are a little high, but that is to be expected in a resort town. Definitely a cool place that any craft beer fan would love, but non craft beer fans would like it as well.
