Wyoming beer is the focus of a statewide competition. (August 26, 2011)

The microbrewing craze was slow to catch on in Wyoming, but spread widely in recent years. With just more than a dozen of them across the state, though, they’re a small-enough cohort to be close-knit. Most of them travel to the tiny town of Saratoga to participate in the only official Wyoming beer fest, and — since this story — they’ve gotten together each year to brew a communal Wyoming beer that gets served across the state.

Steinley Cup Feature

“The Steinley Cup beer festival has become an end-of summer milestone for Wyoming microbrewers and their fans. Microbrewing has been legal in Wyoming for less than 20 years, but the Steinley Cup festival draws hundreds of fans from around the state and beyond to taste their homemade specialties: The draw is what brewers say helps keep them in business. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez has more.”
