Welcome To Melvin Brewing!


Our Story

Melvin Brewing was born in the back of a Thai restaurant in 2009, when owner Jeremy Tofte decided to bring beers from the future to Jackson, WY. Our 20 gallon brew system quickly grew into a 3 barrel system, and we served our award-winning beers — the original Melvin IPA, 2x4 Double IPA, and Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry Bomb — with sides of Asian street food, kung fu movies and old school hip hop.

After winning Small Brewpub of the Year at GABF 2015, we opened a 30 barrel production facility 45 minutes away in Alpine, WY (pop 750) with the awesome help of the people of Wyoming. Shortly thereafter, we went on to win Brewing Group of the Year at GABF 2017.

Embracing the chaos and riding the wave, Melvin Brewing is now ready to take its world class beers on a worldwide tour, via our lifted border patrol Melvin bus.

Remember: if your beer is not madness, it’s not beer.

What We’re About

Lifestyle: Live Life Passionately

You don’t start a brewery in a Wyoming by accident. Our founder chased his dreams of snowboarding the biggest mountains and biking the gnarliest trails to Jackson Hole. That’s the same spirit we take to brewing kickass beer. Bold tastes for bold living.

We believe in embracing every moment and daring to take on every possibility. Our passion is making exceptional beer, but, above all, we are passionate about leaving no can unturned, and no mountain unridden. After working hard on whatever venture makes your heart skip a beat, why not kick back and enjoy a Melvin?

Community: Strengthen Our Communities, Strengthen our Team, Strengthen Other Breweries

One of beer’s many superpowers is it brings people together. Our community is priority one for us. That includes our employees, our sellers, our customers, and our fellow craft breweries. Just as much as we want to make great beer, we want to create memorable experiences for the people drinking our brews.

Whether you’re at the lodge after hitting the slopes or decompressing after a long day’s work, drinking Melvin is about getting together with the people you love to talk, to laugh, and to make memories.

We want to support our community and help it grow. Sometimes that means shouting out a local artist doing amazing work or teaming up with a brewery to collab on something incredible. Sometimes it means helping people get back on their feet after a tough time. What it always means is extending a hand because we couldn’t be more thankful for the support we got on our own journey.

Creativity: Pushing Boundaries

Melvin got started because the West Coast Style IPA did not exist on Wyoming’s “West Coast.” From day one we’ve been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with beer.

To brew great beer, it takes a mix of art and science. That’s why we built a state-of-the-art lab where our mad scientists can experiment on new brews that will feel like a Chuck-Norris-style kick in the head, without the pain.

Our creativity defines us outside the lab, too. Everyone on our team knows they can bring novel ideas to the table, whether that means developing a world-class beer recipe, improving the brewing process to take our quality to the next level, or making an improbable live event possible (like getting Ghostface Killah to blow up Boulder, CO). And we want to share the incredible, creative shit you dream up, too.

Respect: Our People and Our Customers

Last but not least. We’ve always been about having a raucously fun time and we want you to join us in an exceptional beer experience, but respect to our biggest fans, community and partners reins over all.

We believe that every person should be respected. We want to hear your story and make you a part of this community. Once you’re here, we want you to feel like you belong.

We’re not perfect but we are ready to admit any mistakes we’ve made, to listen, and to learn. We want to help you do amazing work in your community and we want you to help us, too. Every time you buy a Your IPA, you get rid of some of your neighbor’s unpayable medical debt.

We’re always looking for new ways to show our respect to our community — reach out to info@melvinbrewing.com if you got any ideas. We’ve got your back.
