Snowy Mountain Brewery Gets National Recognition

Snowy Mountain Brewery is located in the beautiful Saratoga, Wyoming and is the anchor brewpub for the Saratoga Resort and Spa. The microbrewery, which boasts 8-10 craft beers on tap and seasonal beers, is one of the fastest growing breweries in Wyoming and surrounding states.

The name “Snowy Mountain” is fitting for the brewery as it sits adjacent the majestic Snowy Range mountains. The brewery taps their brew into the late hours in the evening for the many locals and resort guests from afar. For those who just can’t get enough, the brown-bottle branded Growler is available with your favorite hop filled to the top.

Snowy Mountain Brewery at Saratoga Resort and Spa was chosen as one of the Top 10 American Luxury Beer Vacations and included in The USA Gold List for Premium Travel Experiences by CNN Travel.

What the tiny city of Saratoga lacks in population it makes up for in locally made beer.

Buried inside the massive Saratoga Resort and Spa is the Snowy Mountain Brewery, one of the oldest brewpub operations in the state.

In 2009, after a several year hiatus, during which its brewing equipment lay dormant, the resort’s owners hired brewmaster Steve Simpson. It has since maintained a steady tap list of nine house beers, from Saratoga witbier to Citra IPA.

Whether you stay at the resort during Wyoming’s short summers or harsh winters, you’ll have your pick of outdoor activities from hunting, fishing and golfing to cross-country skiing and ATV adventuring. You can also soak in Saratoga’s natural hot springs, which are corralled on the grounds into a public 70-foot pool and four smaller teepee-covered pools.
