A public art sculpture is being created for display at the new Southeast Wyoming Welcome Center that will open this summer along Interstate 25 south of Cheyenne. A mountain lion statue was installed last fall. A new collection of art is going in at the Joint Military Forces Readiness Center in Cheyenne and a bronze monument is being created for the new Wyoming Game & Fish Dept. facility in Cheyenne. The Wyoming Arts Council also reports the new glass sculpture in a medium security correctional facility in Torrington is being dedicated June 21.

The beer boys of Jackson Hole have decided to can it.  For Snake River Brewing Co. bottles are out and cans are in says brewery operations director Chris Erickson. “They are better for the quality of our award-winning beer and better for our planet,” said Erickson. The new company cans are being made in Worland, Wyoming and recycling is to take place in-state rather than shipping empty bottles elsewhere as had been practiced. Erickson says blind taste tests have proven beer tastes better, longer, in cans in addition to getting colder quicker and staying cold longer. Media members can contact Tim Harland for a tour of the company’s expanded Jackson Hole operation, talk cans, and maybe crack one or two. Email: tim@snakeriverbrewing.com or call: 307-739-BEER.

Wyoming Whiskey is the first legal distillery in the state and the distinctive nectar aging in barrels warehoused in tiny Kirby, Wyoming is nearing its first pour. Founders Brad and Kate Mead brought on Bourbon Hall of Famer Steve Nally as the Master Distiller. They are dedicated to making world-class bourbon whiskey the Wyoming way using 100% Wyoming grains and water. Public tours of the distillery are available.
