Wyoming now has an official beer, and it is brewed by one of the state’s most popular brewing companies.
Black Tooth Brewing of Sheridan announced Friday that it had brewed a beer that best represented Wyoming, so now it was going to do so in an official capacity.
“Meet the newest addition to our beer family…..307 LAGER!” the brewery announced on social media on Friday. “This beer is not only Brewed FOR Wyoming, it’s now the Official Beer OF Wyoming….and we couldn’t be more proud of it! At 4.2% ABV and 10 IBU, this beautiful light lager is malty, bready, crisp and clean, and light-bodied with a light lemon aroma and mild bitterness.”
The beer is available in six-packs and individual 12-ounce cans at Black Tooth’s Cheyenne and Sheridan taprooms until it runs out, which it likely will since the Fourth of July weekend is creeping closer and closer. Drafts of the beer will be available next week.
The brewers wanted to create a beer that signified Wyoming in a perfect drink.
“Wyoming is who we’ve been, who we are, and who we will always be. It’s at the core of what we value, what we believe, and where we will continually chase perfection,” Black Tooth said. “This beer is for our families, friends, and neighbors.”
Black Tooth Brewery has managed to soldier on during the pandemic, operating two taprooms and selling their beers in stores across the state.
The brewery received a $50,000 in coronavirus relief funds last year from the Wyoming Business Council.
