Plans in works for microbrewery in tiny Clark

Laramie, WYo. – Beer drinkers in Park County can rejoice: Plans are being made for a microbrewery. It's part of a project to renovate the Edelweiss bar and store and to expand a water bottling operation.

Co-owner Peg Potter says Edelweiss is the only business in the community of Clark, but she expects customers from all over the region.

"We are on the highway and the Wyoming Highway Department estimates that we get about 18-hundred vehicles a day that go by," Potter says. "It's a thoroughfare from Cody, Wyoming, to Billings, Montana."

Potter says long-term plan is to use water from a nearby spring to brew the local beer. Potter says operations should begin this fall.
