Madness Days 2017

624 Co Rd 101, Alpine, Wyoming 83128

*** Meet at Thai Me Up at 3:00pm, Friday, June 23 for a true Melvin-style beer tasting to kick off the weekend madness. ***

Deep in the towering Snake River Mountains echoes an harmonic hum. This hum sounds better than the calling of the birds, the roaring of the river and the ohhhs, and ahhhs of stunned tourists. This hum is the sound of Melvin beer being brewed. Zen-like, peaceful or ear-tickle are all great words to describe the noise.

Melvin invites you to our 6- acre property on the Snake River to experience the hum and all the beer that comes with it. It’s going to be an adventure! It’s going to be a party! It’s going to be the best three days of the year! Madness Days 2017!


Melvin Brew­ing invites you to design and assem­ble a life­size 2x4 shrine at Mad­ness Days 2017. As a Mad­ness Days attendee, we ask you to BYO2x4. Cre­ativ­i­ty is wel­comed so use your imag­i­na­tion and deck that 2x4 out with style, pride and what­ev­er mad­ness comes to mind. The con­struc­tion of the 2x4 Man is a Mad­ness Days com­mu­ni­ty effort that will com­mence as you arrive and con­clude on Sat­ur­day night, Viking-style. We would appre­ci­ate if you kept your artis­tic expres­sion to exclude tox­ic mate­ri­als because there will like­ly be Melvin-style burn­ing involved.


How do you feel about free mas­sages and 2x4 for a year? We feel good about it too. #2x4 and #mad­ness­days before, dur­ing and after Mad­ness Days week­end. We aren’t mak­ing any promis­es but you could win some­thing tasty.
