Sacred Brett, 7% ABV
All plums and sugar fairies, after a year spent in a Pinot Noir barrel, Roadhouse’s Sacred Brett is ready to party. On tap now. 7% ABV
Family Vacation Homestead Ale, 4.9% ABV
Modeled after the long tradition of farmers brewing what they had on-hand, Roadhouse’s American Farmhouse Ale is done up in WYO fashion-malted barley, flaked maize corn, and rolled oats. The end result is a light, lovely, and refreshing. Who says the perfect cold-weather beer has to be downright filling, this one is perfect to level out a hefty holiday meal.
Exciting Changes at Roadhouse: Distribution to begin in 2017
Previously all beer was brewed out of the Q Roadhouse and Brewing location; with an expansion south of town, two new buildings going by the name “Culinary Think Tank” will help the expansion to the goal of 30,000 barrels annually.

Bitter Creek Brewing, Rock Springs, WY (map it)
Coal Porter (Our Winter Dark Beer)
It’s dark, just not that dark. If you ever drank Bitter Creek’s Bob, then take it down a notch and you get Coal - a slightly chocolatey malt flavored beer with clean hop flavor. “It is a good beer to turn you towards the dark side…..of beer.”
Another great coming from the Test Batch X. This light lager is sure to balance out any meal.
