ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES are not included in our base rate, nor are we licensed to sell them. Please bring along wine, beer, and/or spirits, and we will stow them safely for your consumption during your stay.  There are excellent purveyors of wine and spirits in Jackson Hole.  Pinedale has a good selection of spirits, and it is also the home of the Wind River Brewing Co.  Please inquire for details.
