Big Horn Beverage Company, Inc., is a wholesale malt beverage distributor, that was incorporated in the state of Wyoming in 1951 by John and Hazel Oatts. The business has been locally owned and operated throughout four generations. The company initially distributed Sheridan Beer from a local brewery until the brewery went out of business. In 1956, Big Horn Beverage became an Anheuser-Busch wholesaler covering territories that include the 5 Northeastern counties in the state of Wyoming; Sheridan, Johnson, Campbell, Weston, and Crook. The business has grown substantially in the last 25 years, going from 8 employees to 25. In more recent years they have added craft brands through Anheuser-Busch as well as smaller breweries. The first was a local brewery, Black Tooth Brewing Company, in 2012. Since that time our distribution has also expanded to Crow Peak Brewing, Uinta, Schofferhofer, and Vernal to name a few. Big Horn Beverage has also more recently started distribution of more non-alcoholic products such as; Dustcutter Lemonade, Barritt’s Ginger Beer, Teavana teas, Hi-Ball & Alta-Palla energy drinks along with Icelandic water.
