Roadhouse Brewing Brewmaster Max Shafer

In beautiful Jackson Hole, WY sits Roadhouse Brewing.  They're one of several breweries in a town of about 10,000.  Although the full-time population may be small, the city welcomes as many as 55,000 visitors every day.  Vacationers enjoying Jackson Hole or on their way to one of the West's amazing National Parks.  And when you're on vacation, you're going to need some beer.

Roadhouse Brewing wants you to Live Deep.  We got to running out mouths and forget to find out exactly what that means.  However, we trust Brewmaster Max Shafer gives it to us straight, so we're going to try our best to follow his advice.  We chat with Shafer about the Mountain IPA.  What it is, how it differs from it's NE and West Coast siblings, and what commonalities they share.  We sip on Wilson, their take on the style with a great story on the can, and we're sold.

Roadhouse Brewing is a certified B-Corp.  This means they're dedicated to purpose and profit, and they're "legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment."  From our conversation Roadhouse is very serious about their impact on the world, and they've gone to great lengths to embody that.  Shafer shares a few of the things the brewery has done to reduce their impact on the environment.

We've never been to Jackson Hole, but if there are more breweries like Roadhouse and more people like Max Shafer then we need to get a trip set real soon.
