2x4 Day

You are cordially invited to participate in a Melvin Brewing revolution. 2x4 Day!


2x4 Day is the celebration of 2x4 Man and his rag tag group of superheroes.

Melvin Brew­ing is from the West Coast of Wyoming.  We have been brew­ing on a small 3-bar­rel sys­tem in the back of a Thai restau­rant for 5 years.  On Feb­ru­ary 4th, 2016, we sent out IPA’s to 24 bars that were brewed on our new 30-bar­rel sys­tem at our Mega Church. 

We would like to invite your bar to host 2x4 Day.  Why you ask? Because your bar rep­re­sents the heart and soul of craft beer cul­ture. This Feb­ru­ary 4th, we want to bring a lit­tle piece of our tap room to your bar com­plete with kung fu, hip hop and dank IPA’s.

2x4 Day ‘16 was celebrated at 24 bars in 9 states. 

This year we are inviting 40 bars in 14 states and 3 countries. 


The Beers

Melvin has an all-star line­up of award win­ning IPA’s in store for you this year. 2x4 Day bars will be the only bars to have these beers on tap at the same time in 2017.  You will get Kung Fu garb, Melvin swag, Tuba play­ers bump­ing Wu-Tang, Kung Fu movies, as well as some oth­er spe­cial stuff that may or may not be legal.
