Snake River Brewing & Brewpub

265 S Milward St, Jackson, WY 83001

Snake River Brewing is Wyoming’s oldest brewery, and has been a favorite watering hole for Jackson locals for over 25 years. The Brewpub (how you’ll hear most locals refer to it) cleans up in the Best of Jackson Hole competition every year (8 wins since 2016 alone). Snake River Brewing produces their award-winning beers in house while serving up a full menu of locally-sourced food. Thirsty and in the mood for a quick bite? Grab a Scratch Pretzel, which they bake fresh daily, and pair it with their classic Jenny Lake Lager. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it.

    We were skeptical reading reviews online but once we checked it out and ordered from menu found the chili is award winning and buffalo wings well done l!!! The pretzel and queso also a must! We would come back. Beer is great and will hopefully be able to buy back home.

    Great food, amazing atmosphere, best service, and a very small wait. Were told 15 mins for a wait (when there was over 20 people already waiting) and was seated within 10. Same night that every other restaurant was booked up! Cannot recommend enough! The steak was amazing! The salad was perfect! Their chili is the best I may have ever had. Everything was too notch here!!

    Try the beer flight! So fun and I was so impressed by the quality of the beer. The horchata creamy ale and sour was my favorite. Food was decent. My husband liked the wings and then we had salads and fried cauliflower bites which were all average. Staff was hit or miss with friendliness. But, we were ultimately there for the beer which was definitely a hit

    Snake River Brewing gets pretty decent reviews, but it just wasn’t hitting for us. When we pulled up, there’s a large, outdoor space with a bunch of seating, green space, etc. - it looks super fun actually! It was raining and cold the day we were there so we sat inside which was fine by us. Cozied up at a table right next to the fireplace and that’s where their 3 stars are coming from. Fire was great, however, there were a bunch of flies near our table and upon further inspection, all around the fireplace, windows, etc. was dirty; spiderwebs, dust & dirt. I know this is a brewery therefore you’ll have the smell of beer throughout, but the smell was like stale beer that had been sitting for a while - just not appealing. The food: Apparently they’re known for their chili and it’s won awards - it’s a beef/bison chili - it was good, but not great. The chili on its own that is - with all of the toppings, this helped elevate the flavors a bit. Overall, I’d rate the chili a 7. The beer: I opted for their sour - again, good but not anything to write home about. Would give that a 6.5. The service: Was average - I’d give it a 7. The COVID: Staff wears masks and gloves - hand sanitizer can be found throughout, so they’re doing what they should be doing in that respect. An 8. The overall: A good place to grab a couple of beers and hang with friends - they also have plenty of TV’s if you want to catch a game. The cleanliness is really what made this review a 3 - if it weren’t for that, would have probably rated it a 4, but nothing was outstanding and nothing was horrible.

    We were in the Jackson area for 4 days and we went here twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. For lunch we were seated immediately and for dinner we waited maybe 15-20 mins, so not bad at all. I ordered the Sour Panda on our first day and really liked it so I got it again when we went back. My husband got the Nitro Speargun Stout for our first visit and liked it, then tried a cider for the second visit and also liked that. The bison burger is very good, the smoked ketchup has great flavor. Go for the sweet potato fries over the regular fries, they’re crispier and more flavorful. Their pretzel is THE BEST pretzel we’ve ever had, and we order pretzels whenever they’re on the menu. The chili was also good - the added jalapeños give it a good kick, but it had good flavor overall. I ordered a cup of the chili with the Cobb salad, and the salad was HUGE. It didn’t have a half-sized option like all the other salads for some reason. But it was good. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the waitstaff is only ok. Not particularly friendly or attentive. The hostess was extremely nice, but both servers we had were very flat and didn’t check on us often or offer to refill our drinks. And the waitress we had for our dinner visit completely neglected us for 20 minutes after I asked for another moment to look at the menu. I would definitely go back for the beer and food, but I know better than to expect good service now.
