Last weekend, several of Wyoming’s brewers united in Pinedale at WindRiver Brewing to create a collaboration brew. “WY-P-A” (Wyoming Pale Ale) is a combined effort of Wyoming’s breweries. WY-P-A’s style will encompass a traditional IPA (India Pale Ale) “…with a twist of Wyoming thrown in for good measure,” Tim Harland of Snake River Brewing in Jackson adds. Each brewer from around the state brought a portion of the ingredients to Pinedale last weekend for this historic brew. Nathan Venner of Altitude Brewery in Laramie states, “The most important and intangible ingredients that will be provided are the camaraderie shared between us and the sweat put forth in creating this brew.” The idea is the brain child of Steve Simpson of Saratoga’s Snowy Mountain Brewing. Tim Harland of Snake River Brewing in Jackson wrote in our latest issue of Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine:

“Steve was crucial in this effort as he personally contacted every brewery and encouraged their participation. After the (Saratoga Steinley Cup) festival, brewers convened at his brewery and over several of his local beers, the concept for a collaboration beer was explored.”

Simpson explains the motivation behind the beer:  “Brewing a collaborative beer gives us Wyoming brewers a chance to get together, share ideas, exchange knowledge and use our individual strengths to create a beer that’s bigger than any single one of us.” He adds, “Since we come from the least populated state in the union, Wyoming’s incredible beers can sometimes get overlooked or don’t garner the attention like those of more populated metropolitan areas.”

According to Harland, WY-P-A  is scheduled to be released on Monday, May 14th. The goal is to have a ceremonial statewide and simultaneous tapping of WY-P-A at all of the participating pub and brewery locations in honoring the onset of National Craft Beer Week. The beer will continue to be poured at each respective brewery, until every last drop has been consumed.
