I was passing through Casper recently & had my supper here. The burger was quite good & the service although not speedy was good. The bartender was very friendly & knowledgeable. The wait staff was also quite cordial . The prices seemed quite reasonable as well. Mind you I am a native of New York City, so my perspective is skewed. (5$ pints are happy hr prices to me)
The beer was good, not great , but good. I had (2) two of the house brews. The black horn and a lager. Both were quite good.
They have a decent selection of Co. & Oregon micros as well as the standard mass produced stuff on tap.
All in all I will return if I am ever in Casper again.

Three staff was very friendly and willing to talk about their beer. I really like three personal tour.

They had a very good selection of Wyoming beers on tap which was excellent. There was a Lander BC, Gillette BC, and a Geyser BC(?) on tap. Nice to taste some other WY beers.

my wife totally raved about three blue cheese bacon burger. I had a piece that wasn't converted with blue cheese. The rave was worth it!

stopped here en route from denver to montana. about what i expected for rural wyoming. a long narrow pub with some interesting wall decorations, about 3/4ths empty on a thursday night with an nfl game on. the vibe was a little weird, hickish in the unflattering sense. chewing tobacco pouches in the urinals etc. they had 4 of their own brews on, a black ale, a brown ale, a pale ale, and an octoberfest. the beers were relatively uninspired and standard, and the october was unpalatable. the brown was tasty enough though. the nachos we got were pretty rough, ballpark quality at best, and were not totally hot when we got them, but this place was never going to win an award for international cuisine or anything. the bartender was attentive, if disinterested in us or their brews. they did have a few nice other micro selections on, which was cool. prices were fair though, and i got some free samples out of the deal. overall not my favorite hangout in the world, but it was neat to see some local brews in wyoming. it was my first time in the state, so i had to stop. probably wont again, but i am thankful for the experience. steer clear of the octoberfest though!

Well, I entered this establishment into the data base but never actually reviewed it. My bad.

What can I say. When I first heard that it was reopening and that they'd be brewing their own beers, I was pumped.

In the beginning, they started off with 2 or 3 microbrews, one of which was an American Pale Ale. It was tasty and I was happy. Since that time, I found the PA suffered fron inconsistancy in the brewing and it was really hit or miss from one batch to another. The last time I was there, oh about 2 months ago, it really became a very bland beer with very little character. Not the same beast they started off with so, I doubt I'll frequent them much in the future.

Food wise, I can say it's average at best. The burgers aren't bad, and the fish tacos are good, but there's little else on the menu that can be described as tasty.

The service can be very erratic. I always sit at the bar and there have been times that I've walked out while waiting to be served. Other times, they are right there to help me.

Bottom line is that it's too bad that the *only* brew pub in town is not a very good example of one. I'm very disappointed.
