WY-P-A being enjoyed at Freedom’s Edge Brewery in Cheyenne…

WY-P-A — What is it and why are people talking so much about it?

Since mid-April, we’ve been including news on WY-P-A on our blogs, and it has appeared in local newspapers and on Facebook. But…what is it? And why is it such a big deal? Here’s our synopsis and why we’re excited:  WY-P-A is a collaboration beer, created through the joint efforts of many of the breweries throughout Wyoming.  There are several breweries in Wyoming, and they all are quite awesome for the same reasons as well as reasons unique to them. There are many things I have learned about beer since we began Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine:  #1 — Beer is an art form. And brewers, with the breweries that they represent, are artists in the purest sense of the word. Just because you can consume their media does not make it any less art, in my book.  #2 — Craft brewing has a following unique to anything else out there, and brewers are a friendly bunch. From my conversations with brewers in a few of Wyoming’s breweries, they’re also friendly with each other. And WY-P-A is a good demonstration of that.

Coming together in Pinedale in mid-April to create WY-P-A

So Wyoming’s breweries came together in mid-April, in Pinedale, and had a weekend of palling around and making a new brew. A brew that they all had a part in — that they all collaborated in. Hence, we have WY-P-A, a pale ale that is a collaboration of all the breweries together. Now THAT’S pretty darn cool, in my opinion. It’s kinda like the best bronze sculptors across Wyoming coming together to all make one massive, amazing sculpture. Or the best painters coming together to create one gigantic mural at once. Cool, right? Absolutely.

On May 14, this past Monday, the breweries across Wyoming opened their taps and all served a portion of this collaborative, super cool effort, this WY-P-A. (I *believe* the word is that it’s still out there, although I heard from Snake River Brewing that it was a-going fast.) On May 14, also, those who dig the craft beer scene headed down to their local Wyoming brewery to sample this effort — so, in effect, a bunch of Wyoming’s citizens collaborated at once to sample a collaboration brew. Again — cool, right? Absolutely.

So in the spirit of this super-cool event, and in the hopes that it continue in the future, we raise a glass and congratulate the Wyoming breweries who put their teamwork into this collaborative brew — and hope that you get to enjoy it too!
