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!

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.

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.

The Aspen of Wyoming. Solid beer, questions questionable atmosphere.

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.
