Grand Teton is a microbrewery with a small bar / tasting room. There's only a couple of small tables. I was there in the mid-afternoon on a weekday, so there were only a couple of other people in the bar. The person working there was happy to give us a tour of the brewery.

I tried the Teton Ale, which is an Amber, and I really liked it. The flavor was solid and fresh.

Score one for Idaho! Grand Teton Brewing Co. is exactly what I look for in a great tap room. Laid back, great beer, knowledgable staff, and dog friendly outdoor seating in a beautiful part of the country. This is a great post ski or hike spot, it's a shame they don't have a fire place and some bunk beds. GTBC is about a half hour drive from Jackson, WY and is a great alternative to the ever slammed Snake River Brewing Co. I am a big fan of the Lost Continent Double IPA, these guys are the real deal. Idaho, who knew?

What a great place. The way tasting rooms used to be. They had their regulars as well as some library Ale`s. my wife had the Heff and i tried everything including the Lost Continent double IPA. As good a double IPA as i have ever tasted. They also had an Imperial Pilsner that was very good. The people there were both friendly and knowledgeable. real nice experience. We plan on taking our friends back there later this year for another visit.

Grand Teton Brewing
Victor, ID
Sept 10- 2008

This brewery on the south end of Victor, ID is in a commercial type building with a sigh proclaiming Otto Brothers Brewing. It seems that one of the Brothers bought out the 50% the other brother owned and changed the name. His office is above the tasting room and one can hear him rumbling around.

The tasting room is just that, a 3 oz tasting room, no place to sit except for the break table for the 10 or so employees. They do have package sales of their beers. They distribute to 15 states from their 30 bbl system. They meet the demand by brewing 9-11 times a week in the summer and about 6 times a week in the winter, about 6000 bbls. They have excess capacity and do some custom brewing. According to the quality assurance, quality control person, Todd, they only use 2 yeasts, an English ale and a German lager. I think their forte comes from the selections of malts.

At my visit 5 of their beers were on tap. Bitch Creek makes up 39% of their sales which is the biggest seller, although Sweetgrass IPA is the local favor and the favor of the staff.

The tasting started with Workhorse Wheat, a clean American Wheat, presenting itself as advertised.

Au Natural Blonde is an USDA certified organic Blonde ale, with a really neat label. For this beer,German hops are used with certified organic malts from New Zealand and Germany to make this Dormouth Lager.

The Teton Ale is a California Common that has been produced for 20 years. It had a small malty nose.

The SweetGrass IPA is really an APA has little nose, IBU of 58 from Cascade among other American Hops. Not much after taste.

During tasting, staff makes coffee and Espresso for afternoon 3:30 shift. The smell of coffee and the sweet boiling wort permeate the building.

Their best seller is Bitch Creek, named after a local body of water not a local woman, is an ESB or American Brown with a 51 IBU. Good mahogany color, but not particularly clear, hoppy and malty nose and full bodied. I understand why it is the best seller.

The Marzen lager was very malty and good, to style.

The seasonal Double Sweetgrass was supposed to be double every thing of the Sweetgrass, has an IG of 1.084 and FG of 1.028. I did not detect the high FG in the body of the beer. I expected a greater maltiness.


The visit to Grand Tenton brewery tasting room was informative. The employees were friendly and well infomed. I think one should plan to bring a growler and drink it on the patio.
