Lander Brewing Company

148 Main Street
Lander, WY 82520


The Lander Brewing Company began brewing beer in the late 1800's in a small facility just across the Popo Agie River from its current Main Street location. A thriving operation for many years, Lander's first brewery was forced to cease production due to The Prohibition Act. The brewery was re-established 120 years later and Lander residents and visitors can once again enjoy the delicious taste of fresh, locally made craft beer.

Under the direction of brewmaster Nathan Venner, Lander's only local brewery has won numerous awards for its craft beers. In 2011 Lander Brewing Company won the coveted Saratoga Steinley Cup, the top award for the best microbrewery in the State of Wyoming. Both The Great American Beer Festival and The North American Brewers Association have bestowed the Lander Brewing Company with abundant medals for several of its beers.

The Lander Brewing Company initially reopened its doors with hopes of bringing craft beer to Cowfish Restaurant and the next door Lander Bar. Over a decade later, the brewery has grown substantially and is now supplying its beer varietals to other restaurant and bar accounts in Lander, as well as in Jackson Hole, Riverton, Casper and many other Wyoming locations. Last spring, in response to recent increases in demand, the company installed two brand-new 15 barrel fermentors. The new equipment has doubled the brewery's production capacity. 

The Lander Brewing Company prides itself on brewing fresh, high quality, "to style" beers using the finest ingredients and techniques. Joining brewmaster Nathan Venner, is brewer Jesse Brown, winner of the recent Wyoming Whiskey challenge for the best bartender. Nathan and Jesse's many years of professional brewing expertise in concert with the exceptional water sourced from the Wind River Mountains provide the flavor profile of our many signature beers. You can sample Atlantic City Gold, Jack Mormon Pale Ale, Rockchuck Rye, Half-Tanked Hefeweizen, Silver Fox Saison and our latest seasonal offerings at the source or at the upcoming Lander Brew Fest.
