The former Wolford’s Shoe Store at 117 E. 2nd has been transformed into a tap room and small brewery, making Frontier Brewing Company and Tap Room the first of three planned local craft breweries to open in Casper.
While it may feel like the downtown eating and drinking floodgates have suddenly opened, planning for these establishments has been months in the making. The brewery’s owners, Shawn Houck, Todd Titus and David Carpenter, worked for months to get the proper licensing completed and tap room ready just ahead of the Eclipse Festival. Workers made last minute adjustments and preparations as the large garage doors facing 2nd Street opened for business on 10:00 this morning.
Oil City is an editorially independent affiliate of Adbay, which Houck owns.
Frontier is open as a tap room for the time being. Their own craft beers will be ready in a couple of weeks. The brewery plans tasting events around that time. The first series of beers will be a golden ale, IPA, rye and an American style pale.
The tap room is using self-serve taps, with bottles of other flavors available as well.
