If Your Beer Is Not Madness, It’s Not Beer.

Wel­come to Melvin Brew­ing! This is the begin­ning of your won­der­ful new, Kung Fu friend­ship between our brew fam­i­ly and all beer lovers alike. Talk of Melvin began on the West coast — but the heart of Melvin start­ed beat­ing in the small town of Jack­son Hole, Wyoming. With big ideas and even big­ger bar­rels of hops, Melvin now takes off (its pants) in the hands of Own­er, Jere­my Tofte. Co-Founder/­Drunk­en Brew­mas­ter Kirk McHale, and head Pro­duc­tion Brew­er, Dave Chichu­ra.

We start­ed in the back of a Thai restau­rant on a 20 gal­lon sys­tem in 2010 and upgrad­ed to a 100-gal­lon sys­tem in 2011. Now we brew on a 30 bar­rel sys­tem with big shiny tanks and cen­trifuges and things. Fan­cy that.


The state of Wyoming want­ed to export some high-qual­i­ty goods to the out­side world, so they gave us a $3 mil­lion dol­lar grant to build a Production/Seduction Facil­i­ty. We land­ed in the quaint moun­tain ham­let of Alpine (pop. 700), 30 miles south of the Hol­ly­wood of Wyoming. From the new brew­ery, we sent our first kegs out to the West Coast in Jan­u­ary 2016 and cans came out on April Fools Day 2016. We put a met­ric shit ton of hops in our beers and fer­ment and dry hop them longer than most. Did we men­tion we start­ed with a full lab to check con­sis­ten­cy and qual­i­ty on an hourly basis? Who does that? Would you look at that? Some­times you just got­ta look at it.
