The best brewers in the region convene under the Bighorns for the annual Suds n’ Spurs Brew Fest, a festival of fun, entertainment, beer sampling and food!
The Suds n’ Spurs Brew Fest is a major fundraiser for the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce. Funds raised will go toward furthering the missions of our committees and to programs and training opportunities for our business community.
On August 25th from 2:00pm -7:00pm, trade in your ticket for a wristband, your official Brewfest sampling glass, and your voting token. Then you’re on your way to UNLIMITED sampling. Make sure to participate in the 2018 People’s Choice Award, by dropping your token at your favorite brewer’s table.

(There’s also a professionally judged competition in the Lager category, with the winner also receiving a Tom Balding Spur.)
Opening the brewfest this year is local band, Sidetrack. Sidetrack brings a variety of classic rock music from the 70’s and 80’s.
Headlining this year is John Roberts Y Pan Blanco! John Roberts’ many years of national and international touring, recording and performing experiences with Afro-Latin, Orchestral, Funk, Soul, Salsa, Pop, Jazz and R&B ensembles have led to the creation of John Roberts Y Pan Blanco. With vocals in Spanish, English and Portuguese, this group is melding energetic and contagious Funk, African and Latin dance grooves with instrumental solos, sharing musical diversity and positivity with the audience.
THE FOOD VENDORS
Your opportunity to purchase delicious food to go along with that beer sampling! Enjoy culinary delights from local favorites Bistro 307 and Pie in the Sky Pizza as well as 307 Bucking Grill out of Riverton.

YOUR FOUR-FOOTED FRIENDS
No dogs (or pigs or goats) please. They don’t like beer anyway. But we do welcome your other (two-footed) family and friends who won’t be sampling the beers – your designated driver, those under age 21, and any other non-drinking guests – no admission charge.
THE SMOKING AREAS
Please smoke only in the designated areas.
THE TROLLEY SHUTTLE
The Sheridan Trolley will be providing complimentary shuttle service between the Holiday Inn and Whitney Commons Park, during the hours of the event. Additional public parking for the event is available in the north parking lot at the Holiday Inn. [shuttle schedule]
