Extracted from Pine Bluffs Distilling
Pine Bluffs Distilling was born in a garage. Home-brewer Chad Brown was talking malt with his cousin Gene Purdy, a farmer. Wyoming had a burgeoning craft beer and spirits scene, but the cost of shipping malt was high.
They asked, What if Wyoming spirits could be made with grain straight from local farms?
Together and with their Aunt, Kathy Brown, they answered that question by founding the Wyoming Malting Company and Pine Bluffs Distilling. The mission: distill and distribute premium local spirits so everyone—in Wyoming and beyond—can taste the farm-to-distillery difference.
