DESCRIPTIONS & BREWING INFO
River Brewing Co. is one of a few hundred small craft brewing companies
operating in the country. We are carefully brewing beer on a 20
barrel (620 gallon) system.
Just to put our size in perspective Budweiser brewery will
spill more beer in one day than we can brew in one day.
Wind River Brewing Co. uses
only the finest quality ingredients in the brewing process. Many of these ingredients are imported
from the U.K. and Germany.
The water we use in the brewing process from our local glacier
fed lake is very special, testing 98.9% pure, we do not alter or
adjust the chemistry of the water at all.
All the beers we produce are Ales. The majority of these Ales are English style ales. We try to brew our ales true to style with a bit of our own
style added for distinction.
(Click beer name to close description)
Wind River Blonde Ale is a pale golden beer that is lively, light and refreshing. It is the first bere to be packaged in a can in the State of Wyoming.
are three different recognized styles of Bitter Ale: Ordinary Bitter,
Best Bitter & Extra Special Bitter (ESB). The only noticeable difference in these styles is the level of Hop
presence. Buckin' Bitter is an Ordinary Style bitter. Brewed with crystal and caramel malted
barley this beer features moderate sweetness and a noticeable hop
character. Slightly bitter
with a bit of floral hop aroma this is a good introduction to the
more robust English ale styles we brew.
An American Amber Ale style beer. This amber ale is full of sweet malty flavors and a heavy
dose of complex hop flavors and aromas. Deep copper in color. Because this is an American Amber Ale
style beer it features strong American citrus and floral hop aromas.
WYOMING PALE ALE (WPA)
A hybrid Pale Ale as big as Wyoming! An extremely large dose of American, English and Special Northwest hops makes this brew the hoppiest of them all. This beer is dry hopped which adds a copious amount of hop aroma and resinous sweetness to its beautiful malty body. 7.2%
FORCE PALE ALE
English Pale Ale style beer. Similar
to the bitter just a larger amount of the same malted barley is
used. The hops we use in this beer are imported from
England and added in generous amounts throughout the boil to create
a complex hop profile. This
slightly sweet beer finishes with a very refreshing hop presence.
Not the "Darkest" beer we brew but the strongest. T.K.O. Is an Old Ale
style beer pushing Barley Wine status. TKO is brewed using malted barley from England, Germany,
and the U.S.. This ale uses
more than double the malted barley we use in the production of the
Kolsch. The result is a very sharply alcoholic
but surprisingly smooth ale. Many caramel, candy like and slightly roasted malt flavors
come through fairly dry and slightly balanced by moderate hop bitterness.
A South German Style Hefeweizen (With Wheat) This malted wheat based
ale has a cloudy straw color appearance. This is an unfiltered wheat ale featuring hints of banana
and clove flavors and aromas. These interesting flavors are a byproduct
of the Weinstephan yeast strain we use to brew this beer. Served with Lemon or Orange wedge.
MANGO WHEAT BEER
Mangos grown in a secret location in Pinedale are infused into our
Weiss beer, making a very refreshing, surprisingly fruity wheat
Another twist on the Weiss beer. Raspberry infused for a bright refreshing summer quencher.
OF ORDER PORTER
A brown porter by style. This
beer is actually deep red in color. It is also a very light beer. Porter gets its dark appearance from chocolate and roasted
malted barley. This malt gives our porter some sweet chocolate
flavors. This ale is very
lightly hopped and finishes slightly dry.
Oatmeal Stout by style. This
is a fairly large beer. Very
dark in color. This
big malty beer is filled with complex flavors which include, caramel,
toffee, coffee, and espresso flavors. The addition of 150 pounds of oatmeal to this brew helps
smooth out all those complex flavors creating a slightly creamy
mouth feel. This beer is
hopped just enough to balance out the high level of sweetness in
A combination of two great beers, Gayle Force and Buckin' Bitter
