About Melvin Brewing

Melvin Brewing was founded in 2009 by Jeremy Tofte and Kirk McHale to fulfill their need to drink the biggest, most exciting West-Coast Style IPAs in Jackson, WY. Experimenting on a 30-gallon, then three-barrel brew house system, they developed the Melvin IPA and 2×4 Imperial IPA, which went on to win gold medals at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, back-to-back Alpha King awards in 2012 and 2013, and a Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup. On the strength of these and other beer brands, Melvin Brewing was awarded the 2015 Small Brew Pub and Small Brew Pub Brewer of the year.

Melvin brewing now has more than 40 amazing beer recipes to its name, expanding its portfolio of hoppy beers and other styles with brands or beer styles such as ChChCh-Cherry Bomb (fruit beer), Killer Bees (honey ale), Coffee Ruckus (coffee Imperial stout), Wu’Wit (Belgian wit) and Hey Zeus! (Mexican lager).

In 2015, Melvin Brewing opened its production facility in Alpine, WY, brewing out of a new 30-barrel brew house. Kirk will keep manning the three-barrel system in the back of Jackson, Wyoming’s Thai Me Up Restaurant to keep creating some of the most exciting beers on the market today, while Dave Chichura will take over the larger scale production in Alpine.
