WYOld West Brewing Company was formed in early 2014 by a group of local visionaries with the goal of bringing great food and great beer to Powell and the surrounding area. The building it now sits in once served as Powell’s bowling alley and, more recently, an appliance store prior to being purchased and renovated into the beautiful space it is today.
Opened in phases, the now-defunct retail liquor store and tasting room (located in the very front of the building) was the first part of the business opened to the public in February of 2015. The spectacular pub area followed soon thereafter, and the front space was quickly re-purposed into a makeshift pizza kitchen to satiate the hunger of our growing customer base. Our pizza kitchen opened in October of 2015 and was a rousing success! With plans already in place for a kitchen upgrade and expansion, our efforts shifted to the completion of the brewery.
Our first beer — G-Street Pale Ale — was brewed in late January of 2016 and rolled out along with 3 other varieties at our “official” Grand Opening on February 27th! Since that time we’ve brewed over 12 different beers and we have plans for many more!
