Wind River Brewing moving brewing operations to Evanston, Wyoming
April 27, 2016
Wind River Brewing Company of Pinedale will be expanding their brewing operations to Evanston, Wyoming. They will be moving into the historic Roundhouse building, built in the early 1900s to service railroad locomotives used by the Union Pacific Railroad. The unique building is now owned by the City of Evanston and one section of the building has been restored and is being used as a meeting and convention center. It is a big attraction in the town. Three other sections of the Roundhouse remain unrestored, but provide a huge expanse of floor and high ceiling space for potential future use. Wind River Brewing will take two of those open sections for their new brewing operations.
The City of Evanston recently received news that the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) has awarded them $3 million in a community development grant towards completing the restoration of the historic Roundhouse. The grant will be used to complete the masonry, windows and doors for the outside fašade of the remainder of the Roundhouse. Wind River Brewing will build a larger brewery, have a restaurant, tasting room and gift shop in their space. They plan to keep their brewery and restaurant in Pinedale as well.
