A Shot and a Beer

When it’s time to raise a glass to Wyoming’s western traditions, all too often the toast is made with a beverage from far or near – but not from Wyoming.  This is the year that changes that.

Wyoming Chronicle visits withCOO David DeFazio, and Master Distiller Steve Nally about their obsession with creating the state’s first bourbon whiskey from all Wyoming ingredients, a spirit that is scheduled to make its first appearance in December of this year.

Producer Richard Ager also sits down with brew masters Steve Simpson from Snowy Mountain Brewery in Saratoga and Richie Strom from Wind River Brewing Company in Pinedale and talks about the collaborative effort taken by thirteen brew masters from across the state who gathered recently in Pinedale to create a single beer for Wyoming, WyPA, just in time to celebrate National Craft Beer Week, May 14-20.
