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, 2×4 Double IPA, and Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry Bomb — with sides of Asian street food, kung fu movies and old school hip hop.
