Stopped in on the family vacation through Jackson and Yellowstone. I've been reading about the greatness of Snake River since the late 90's and I was nothing but disappointed. The brewpub is located right off the main strip and is kid-friendly (kids' menu available), both of which are pluses. The food options (mostly pizza and sandwiches) are very limited, but that's not really a problem in my mind. The problem was that the beer was as watery as any third-rate brewpub. This place must be riding on years-old reputation, because none of the beers was even adequate. The stronger flavored options (the stout and the IPA) were flavorful, but not for the style. The Kolsch was like sparkling water and the other regular beers all tasted like Sam Adams Light. Our server was too busy or too disinterested to get back to our table to freshen drinks or to check on us at all. Bad stop all together, but the pizzas were inventive and not at all bad.

Snake River Brewing has the feeling of a family-owned business and is a great place to enjoy a few beers and some typical pub food with some friends or bring a big family group with small kids like we did. The staff doesn't seem to mind -- they do an excellent job either way.
A: The atmosphere is pretty typical for a brewery-restaurant combo, but it has a somewhat more kitschy, quaint, family-owned feel to it. There are two main levels and both operate pretty similarly. It is a pretty large restaurant overall, and all on-tap beers (about 10) are available.
Q: The quality of the beers were excellent. I ordered a Snake River Lager and Pako's IPA and both were exceptional. I tried my father-in-law's Kolsch and it was quite good, a little light in the maltiness department but pretty good. The food was pretty usual brewpub-type food but got the job done. I had a veggie burger which was probably the least good entree, clearly from a box.
S: The service was remarkable -- we had a large party of 11 people with small kids. Beers and drinks were there pronto and the food was at our table in 15 minutes -- couldn't have been more perfect. A couple of small errors but they were rectified quickly. The servers were in good spirits and didn't seem to mind helping a table with at least one screaming toddler.
S: They have about 10 beers on tap and all are fresh and good-to-great examples of the style they say they are. This is a quality small brewery -- you will not be disappointed in the beer and the overall experience is good. Prices are definitely reasonable -- especially for Jackson Hole.
F: The food was typical brewpub stuff - nachos, etc. The portions were appropriate to large. Nobody left hungry.
Snake River Brewing is just what you are looking for -- excellent beers and service with a comfortable, local vibe.
