Collin Rudkin started brewing beer about six years ago, shortly after he turned 21. Now he’s brewmaster at the new Frontier Brewing Company and Tap Room in downtown Casper.

Frontier, which opened last week just before the eclipse festival, is the first of three craft brewers planned for Casper. These developments finally bring Casper into the craft beer party that smaller towns such as Lander, Sheridan and Ten Sleep have been enjoying for years.

Frontier is Rudkin’s first professional brewing job, but he’s been taking the craft very seriously since he made his first batch in college. He discovered craft beer during a cycling tour with friends. “My travel mates bought me a six pack of Newcastle brown ale,” remembers Rudkin. “For the rest of the trip we got to experience craft beer in towns across the entire United States.”
