Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) RELEASE: The committee for the 19th annual Wyoming Brewer’s Festival is excited to announce a long-term partnership with Midas Auto Service and Tires of Cheyenne. This partnership not only secures the Depot Plaza as the venue for the life of the partnership, it also brings together two entities with 2 common passions – craft beer and the Historic Cheyenne Depot.
“Brook and I are very proud to have Midas Auto Service and Tires of Cheyenne become long term partners with the Wyoming Brewer’s Festival,” said Nick Dodgson, owner of Midas Auto Service & Tires and Midas Speedee of Cheyenne. “The alliance ensures this great community event stays in downtown Cheyenne and supports future needs and enhancements to the Cheyenne Union Pacific depot building.”
The safety of festival patrons is our number one priority. As a component of the partnership, the committee will enhance their “no drinking & driving” campaign to ensure all patrons have a safe ride home.
“The creation of a quality craft beer represents a labor of love. It takes vision, passion and commitment. These traits embody the characteristics of our new presenting sponsor,” Brew Fest Chairman, Dave Haring, said. “Nick, Brook, and the entire Midas team are passionate, long standing supporters of the Depot, the Wyoming Brewer’s Festival and the entire community of Cheyenne. We are thrilled to have them as a partner and look forward to working with them as we craft the long term enhancement of the Wyoming Brewer’s Festival and fortify the preservation of the Cheyenne Depot.”
