Interested in supporting our efforts toward the extensive rehabilitation of the Depot as opposed to becoming a sponsor of the festival? Please consider making a tax-deductible donation! This year’s proceeds will primarily be utilized to provide the depot with wheelchair accessible doors. Every dollar counts and we appreciate your support!!
Why we do what we do.
In 1993, Union Pacific donated the Historic Depot building to the City of Cheyenne and Laramie County, and stabilization of the building started a year later.
Thanks to the efforts of our sponsors, the Wyoming Brewers Festival presented by Midas has contributed nearly $350,000 to the extensive rehabilitation of the Depot.
The first floor now houses the Cheyenne Depot Museum and the Accomplice Beer Company. The upper levels house offices related to tourism, economic development and the museum.
None of this would be possible without the help of our sponsors.
Sharing our passion for craft beer with the city of Cheyenne and surrounding communities while raising money for a great cause.
What We've Achieved
