    “We’ve been working hard to bring this fun, community-building event to Dubois,” Executive Director of the Dubois Chamber of Commerce Jennifer Weydeveld stated leading up to the event.

    “The first Old West Brewfest wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and positive leadership of our partner Luke Sander, owner of the Rustic Pine. Michelle Forster from the Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild will also be a big part of our event.”

    “I’m excited to be representing several of our wonderful breweries this weekend at one of the most beautiful spots in Wyoming,” added Forster, Executive Director of the Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild.
