📍 Skull Tree Brewing 

Skull Tree Brewing has 6-7 beers on tap, with a more intimate setting allowing you to get an up-close view of the brewing process. Watching beer brew while you drink it is a unique experience, and one that you don’t get at most places. Skull Tree also has an outdoor patio and is often visited by a few of Casper’s local food trucks.

📍 Oil City Beer Company

One of the newer breweries in Casper, Oil City Beer Company has had gathering with family and friends on their mind since the very beginning. Besides great local craft brews for the adults, they often have live music, corn hole tournaments, food trucks and more. In all honestly, what’s better than craft beer and a friendly game of corn hole with friends? A few of their regular brews include an Oil City Red Ale, a Belgian Wit and the Severance Pale Ale, and with a variety of specialty brewed sodas, kids are encouraged to come join in on the fun, too.

📍 Frontier Brewing Company 

Frontier Brewing Company is one of those places that just has everything. From live music to trivia nights, the entertainment here is top-notch, just like the popcorn. With 2-3 of their own beers on tap, they also offer styles from our local breweries and other Wyoming and western breweries as well. Their self-serve taproom adds to their unique experience as you’ll pay by the ounce, allowing you to try a little bit of everything without getting your card declined at the end of the night. Their offerings have only continued to expand with a new taproom open now and delicious eats being added this summer. Take on your friends in a game of Mario Kart in one of the theaters on the weekends, trust us, it's a whole new experience on the big screen!

📍 Mountain Hops Brew House

From almost the moment they opened Mountain Hops Brew House stole the hearts of Casper locals and visitors alike. With great tasting beer and their ability to always have a delicious food truck or two right outside the door, you’ll be in love too once you get there. The brewery has put in work to provide a beautiful outdoor patio where you can sit down and play one of the many board games they store in the taproom or just relax in the sun. If you plan ahead, you can even join them for their Beer Yoga events from early summer through the fall.

📍 Stahoo's Brewery and Taproom

Stahoo's Brewery and Taproom is brimming with family heritage, a unique story, and even more unique small back craft brewed beers. "Stahoo" is a Polish nickname for Stanley and honor's the owner, Jim's, Grandpa who was born to Polish immigrants in Saginaw, Michigan, where local neighborhood breweries and distilleries first sprung up to quench the thirst of men working in the heat of massive factories. When prohibition came, Stahoo and his brothers built a moonshine still (Jim still remembers pieces of it hidden in his Grandpa's barn). After years of practice, careful planning, and the support of family and friends, Jim brought this great family tradition to Casper. 

📍 Black Tooth Brewing

If you want the taste of Wyoming, here is the brew stop for you! Black Tooth Brewing has the official beer of Wyoming with locations in Sheridan, Cheyenne, and historic downtown Casper. With a visually stunning space perfect for kicking back with your friends in doors or out on the patio you'll find a taste of Casper's night life here. Great locally brewed beer, their rotating schedule of food trucks, and a jam-packed event schedule boasting trivia, live music, and more, make this a can't miss location on your tour.
