Notes: Welcome to Jackson Hole, Wyoming!

Make yourself at home at Snake River Brewing in the heart of the Teton Mountain Range. All roads, trails, bike paths, climbing routes and ski runs lead to "The Brewpub"! After a day in the great outdoors how can you not partake of a tasty malt beverage and a delicious meal?

Considered by many to be Jackson's "living room", our pub provides locals and visitors alike a unique social experience. We are non-smoking (always have been) and family-friendly.

We open each day at 11:30 am and our kitchen serves until 11:00 pm. Wyoming says you gotta leave by 2:00am.

We've been around since 1994 when Joni and Albert Upsher decided to open the restaurant and brewery. In 2007, the Upshers retired and sold to Ted and Noa Staryk. Snake River Brewing has always been family owned and operated. Everything here is handmade, we even have our own bakery.

If you're thirsty or hungry or both, we can help. Hope to see you soon!

Big, clean modern interior, ski lodge crossed with a factory. Mostly normal flagship brews on tap. Did not try the food. Lineup reflected the lighter end of the beer spectrum.

Just outside the main drag in Jackson WY (and conveniently located near the rodeo) a must stop for travelers in the area. Large indoor/outdoor space, with fire pits and yard games while you wait. Lengthy menu, typical pub fare with some Wyoming influence. Good selection of beer on tap, which march, to go options and the all important sampler.

Of the 3 breweries I visited in Jackson, honestly this was my favorite. Two floors and an outside seating area. Semi-industrial feel, with all the brewing in plain sight. The service was good, the staff was friendly. The beer was average, nothing terrible and nothing outstanding, but a lot of good stuff that you could easily just sit back and relax with. And good food to boot, with decent prices.

Stopped in for a quick lunch - first stop after spending 6 hours on a commercial flight. Boy did that first beer taste good...
TSnake River Brewpub is a somewhat eclectic venue, with bits and pieces of the brewery intermingled with the customers. (How does their insurance company allow that? Mine wouldn't.)
Crowd was mixed old/young, but with a definite skew towards the young side. Service was excellent - prompt, courteous, and attentive. Can't ask for more. As far as I could tell, their beers are all their own - but it's quite a list and a great variety of styles. Something for everybody on there. Food was great too. Highly recommended if you're in Jackson!

9 brews on tap. Delicious gastro-pub food including excellent beef-bison chili and whole trout. Lively and a bit loud with limited bar space but 3-4 seating areas.

Enjoyed visiting this brew pub. A bit older but it definitely has its own little vibe. Staff was friendly enough, beer was fresh and the food I had was great. A good place to hit up for a beer lover visiting Jackson.

Easy to find and if using the SMART bus (free service if staying in Jackson) get off at the 49'er stop and walk a few blocks. Arrived @ 6:30pm with spouse and another couple; place was packed with those waiting on table to eat. We were interested in the beer and went up walkway to bar area.
There is additional seating upstairs for eating.

Crowd appeared to be mid 20-30's with a few old geezers like me sprinkled about. Fermentation tanks are in center of building. Bar seats approx. 30 people with a counter high top across from it that will seat 10 or so. Tables are also available. TV's abound - yep it's a place to hang out.

Brews are limited to Snake River with a nice variety of 8-10 including lager, IPA and stout. I had the Jenny Lake Lager and my friend had the Zonker Stout. Wine is also available for the ladies. Service seemed a little hectic with one guy trying to attend the bar and wait staff popping in to draw a few for their customers. We were served within two minutes of arrival at the bar. Noisy from conversations which is to be expected.

Went three times while in Jackson on vacation, twice in the afternoon, once at night.
Great atmosphere and people (customers and staff). Had some appetizers while drinking, they are about what I expected, average.
Beers were good, but of course, limited to their own.
After a long night I ended up accidentally leaving my credit card. I was 200 miles away when I realized it, but they had no problem sending to my house. Many thanks.
The beer "Rob Still Sucks" had me laughing, because I have a similar inside joke as this. Ask them about the name.

Visited with the parents during our trip to the Tetons/Yellowstone. This was one of the breweries I was looking forward to visiting on the trip. My experience with beer in this area of the country was severely limited before this summer and I had only heard good things about this spot in Jackson. I also had heard good things about Jackson itself so I was intrigued to see how the local craft beer scene was.

As far as vibe goes, it definitely felt like a brewpub with the fermentation tanks in and outside of the restaurant. Plenty of TVs around with various sports games on. Not a beer geek devoted spot but you can tell the place is devoted to the beer they brew. Easy beer-to-go station right as you walk in which should be obvious but I have seen other highly touted brewpubs lacking quick, easy options.

All of the beers I tried were above average to great. I really enjoyed Zonker and Pako's fresh from the source. The cans of Pako's we got were also excellent throughout our trip in the midwest. We had food which was some of the better food I have had at a brewpub. Excellent house-made beer sausage. The whole family was happy with the food. Overall a good brewpub where you can tell they are devoted to both the beer and food, not just trying to make a quick buck.

This was stop #36 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Wednesday evening to enjoy their beers and to have dinner. The place was busy, but our timing was right and we were seated right away.

The beer menu had 10 beers listed, but only 8 were available so we ordered a sampler flight of all eight. Each of the beers was brewed to style and was average or a little better, but none were so notable to mentioned here. However, the food was very good and out-shined the beer.

This is a place that is a worthy visit, but don’t expect to be wowed by the beers. We’d probably go back again, but the food would be the prime motivator.

This is a very large brewpub, with multiple levels of seating sprawling around the tanks and bar. Nice selection of their own brews. The staff was helpful even explaining the backstory on a couple beers. Only had a big plate of pub chips, but they were very good.

Very reasonable brewery prices for a touristy town that can attract a lot of big spenders. Enjoyed most of their beers via the little samplers. Fairly regular pub fare offerings, so went with pizza. Good service considering how busy it was. Thought the seating situation could be better to accommodate more people.

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.

Visited SRBC in June with my college buddy and was awesome. Beer was amazing. i had a sampler, followed by a pale ale. Staff was very good and took care of us. Food among our group was really good. Everyone in our group had a great meal and visit. Can't wait to go back!

Stopped in on a recent trip to Jackson, WY.

The place was pretty typical for a brewpub. TV's, music playing, big bar with a few different stations of taps, visible brewing equipment, etc...

They quality of what I sampled while there was great. 8 beers on tap if I remember correctly with a cask available as well. Pakos IPA and Zonker Stout were their two flagships that stood out to me. But the clear cut winner was Le Serpent. I made sure to get seconds of this one.

The service was good, not great. It might have been more on us than them as we had had their beers all over town all week and didn't really feel the need to ask too many questions. Regardless, my beer was poured and served with no problems.

I can't speak to the whole menu, but the Wild Game Chili was fantastic.

Good value for what you get. Definitely worth checking out.

I visited Snake River Brewpub on September 1st, 2012.

Don't let this review skew you in any way, but my only only real complaint of Snake River Brewpub was its absence of seating availability. There was no rhyme or reason to its function. People standing everywhere; almost on top people at their dinner tables whilst the couple was eating. People standing in front, and around the bar without knowing where to stand to ask for a beer. Only two pavilion seats outside; figured there would be more outside seating with an attending waitress... or, even a few rover style waitresses working the outside standing area to somewhat squelch the chaos in front of the bar. However, the bartenders did a good job at eagle eying the customers, but the system could be a lot better and less stressful.

Other than the seating situation, the environment was awesome, the people were more than friendly; the Brewpub location was FANTASTIC. The food was great, and the beer was more than enjoyable.

Pako is a name of a dog and the name of a very good beer from this fine brewery that I can't get back home. And Snake River Brewing is a nice place with a self guided tour and a reasonable sampler with solid beers. And I am one who is a great fan of their Zonker Stout. People where friendly for the most part, and the building was modern. Had the lunch special and food was ok for pub fare, but not the best. I don't know if I will get back to Jackson, but if I do you can be sure I will be going back.

Stopped here on my move up to Montana.

The place is modern, clean, busy, and well laid out. There was an upstairs area and the design allowed you to see back into the brewery from the bar. Had the Pako's IPA and the stout, both of which were served in a room temp glass and were very tasty. The bartenders were courteous and helpful. Seemed to be a lot of locals, which is a good sign. Only drawback was the loud, annoying techno/house music playing which made conversation difficult. The shit was blaring. Had the bleu cheese burger, which was delicious.

Went here the other day after a day of hiking up in the Tetons. Arrived early afternoon on a Sunday and the place was hopping. They have a couple nice patio areas and we were able to grab a table on the upstairs patio. Had a pint of their Pako IPA which was very tasty and my wife had their lager which was also very good. We shared a plate of their happy hour nachos which were cheap and tasty. Their normal prices were pretty high but thats Jackson Hole. I did buy a six pack of the Pako IPA in cans and it was $9 for a six pack...good IPA but thats a little much...once again though its Jackson Hole so what do you expect. Overall very solid place, I would frequent Snake river a ton if I lived in the area.

Snake River is located in Jackson, a place most people probably love or hate. Despite being the worlds largest frat house, we enjoyed our evening in town before swiftly returning to our nearby campsite in Grand Teton NP.

This place was absolutely buzzing on a Saturday night - we grabbed a buzzer and waited in the bar. The US was getting slaughtered by Mexico in the Gold Cup and that buzzer never did go off so we found a home at the bar for the evening.

I'm not sure if Jackson has an off-season, but the bar had a lot of locals in it though the smell of tourists was strong.

The building was bright, lofted and packed with people. The beer was all quite nice (IPA, pale, california common, stout) and the food was also great. I had the truffle mushroom pie with sage, peppers and goat cheese - quite tasty.

Definitely worth a break from the campfires if you're staying in lower Grand Teton.

My family and I stopped in here a few nights ago for dinner and a few pints. We had just arrived at the Jackson Airport and it was just after 10:00pm. Snake River Brewpub happened to be one of the only places open for dining at that time of night.

Snake River Brewpub was hoppin' when we showed up - we were lucky to find a table! The crowd was comprised mainly of young people, with a few old cowboys scattered about. The interior looks like a mix between warehouse and local pizza joint; high ceilings and wooden rafters, with arcade games upstairs. It felt very comfy.

We ordered two pizzas and a couple rounds of beer. Our waitress was friendly and speedy, although she didn't seem too beer-savvy. That was fine though because the menu provided detailed descriptions of each ale and lager. The beer selection was diverse, and it seemed like every offering boasted multiple GABF and WBC awards. Both the food and beer were stellar, and we'll definitely be back here before we fly out on Friday (June 24th).

If you find yourself in Jackson Hole, make sure you pay a visit to Snake River Brewpub!

Classic brewbub, visible brew system, big lofty building with lots of glass. Numerous awards decorate the post & beam interior.Nice outdoor seating area w/plenty of bike racks.

We tried numerous brew and they were all true to style, no real standouts, just solid tasty beer.

Service was a little weak until we asked for some local information, then the great personalities came out.

The food was served propmtly and the portions were generous. The locals sitting at the bar were very engaging and downright helpful with every topic that were asked about.

If your in Jackson and like brewpubs this is a must stop.

Went to Jackson for a few days and saw that this was the "most awarded small brewery in America" so I figured I'd go eat and have a beer here one night. I wasn't disappointed.

The atmosphere was okay. The outside wasn't very inviting, but the inside was pretty great. A lot of talking and regulars who were pretty obnoxious but that's not too bad.

The food was amazing. Good selection on the menu. The bison bratwurst was phenomenal.

The beer was amazing, as it should be.

The service was okay. Our server came by the table three times and that's about it.

I'll definitely come here again if I'm ever in Jackson.

Stopped in Jackson on the way to a conference in Jackson Hole. Jackson was your typical tourist town, while everyone headed to the Cowboy Bar or the Silver Dollar, we went got out of the tourist traps and headed to the Snake River Brewing Company. What a nice surprise, a large outdoor seating area along with a large first and second floor seating area with the brew works in the background. Both floorsalso had very nice bar areas. The atmosphere was very nice, what you would expect from a brewery and brewpub.
They had about seven beers on tap, including Fitzy Stout in cask. They also had a nice bottle selection of their beer.
Our waitress was a rookie, her second day on the job, so I'll cut her some slack, she was trying hard and did a good job. She was very attentive and was still learning the beer styles.
The menu was very nice, the griddled polenta and the California pizza were excellent.
We headed out just as the big storm hit, so instead of getting soaked, we retreated to the upstairs bar. The bar tender was very friendly and had great beer knowledge. I was able to sample a few more of the snake river selections, thank you weatherman.
All in all this is a great stop if your in Jackson, a bit pricy, however, that goes with the territory.

I took my in-laws here for lunch on our recent trip to the area, and we wound up coming back for dinner as well that same day. Need I say more?

The atmosphere was an interesting mix of open industrial decor with laid-back outdoor themed artwork, with the brewing apparatus highlighted rather than hidden; the presence of scores of hanging mug-club glasses proves that this is a place that locals frequent, which definitely set it apart from most of the tourist-trap establishments in Jackson. The wide open spaces also helped keep the noise level down, even when the place was crowded on a Saturday night (but only so crowded that we had to wait 5 minutes for a table - not bad at all). Service was friendly and attentive (especially at lunch, when it wasn't as busy).

The quality of the beer was top notch. I tried at least a sample of each of their brews, and all were solid (with Zonker Stout and Pako's IPA being the standouts; the lagers were also quite good - for lagers). My only complaint was that they didn't offer any guest taps (or a full bar), and their beer lineup was geared more toward the masses than a beer geek like me - I didn't really see the need for both a Dortmunder and a Vienna lager, or both an amber and a brown ale. A slightly more adventurous list of available beers would have more than made up for the lack of guest taps.

All the food I tried was good (the artichoke dip was an awesome appetizer, and my wife loved her pasta with spicy peanut sauce ), with the lone exception being the peach ice cream sandwich. If you want dessert, go for the chocolate cake made with the stout.

All in all, SRB provided a great brewpub experience both for me and my less beer-obsessed in-laws, and is definitely a place I'll return to if ever in the area again.
