Immerse yourself in the tastes of Teton Valley producers by taking part in one of the numerous food and drink tastings and tours around town.
Snake River Brewing Company offers both guided and self-guided tours of their craft brewing process. Guided tours take place at 2:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, with up to eight spots available. They recommend groups call ahead to ensure space is available on the next tour. Tours may also be arranged for groups at alternative times. Otherwise, the brewery has a self-guided brochure and plaques placed around the building to guide guests through the brewing process. Call the brewery at 307-739-BEER to check on tour availability.
Local distillery Jackson Hole Still Works is a great stop to meet with the producers and find out more about their specialty gin and vodka. Not only can you purchase the spirits on site, they offer tastings as well. While you are there, ask if they have any upcoming bottling parties, where they often look for volunteers. And, if you ask nicely, the owners are happy to share some of their favorite cocktail recipes to go along with your to-go goodies.
