JACKSON, Wyo. — Thai Me Up (TMU) will officially close its doors for good on Nov. 4.
Opened 22 years ago by Jeremey Tofte, with the unique concept of a Thai craft brewpub combined with Tofte’s affinity for 90’s hip-hop and old kung-fu movies, Thai Me Up quickly became a local favorite.
TMU offered Thai staples like Pad Thai and Currys and a Thai take on brew-pub favorites like burgers, cheesesteaks and even poutine. Guests could always enjoy an $8 Skid Curry and $3 beer to keep their skid dreams alive and well.
Tofte initially gathered all the best craft brews he could get in Wyoming while saving up for years to buy the first brew system. Tofte started brewing out of TMU in 2010 as “Thai Me Up Brewery” before changing its name to Melvin Brewing which operated out of the Thai Me Up restaurant in 2014. Eventually, Melvin moved to Alpine to expand in 2016.
“It’s been an incredible 22 years,” Tofte said.
While his beers and the restaurant will be greatly missed, Tofte plans to take some time to enjoy doing all the things he initially moved here for.
The half block the Thai Me Up sits on, as well as the Ranch Inn, was acquired by Crystal Creek Capital this summer, and Town Council unanimously approved the development plan for the Cache + Pearl Condos located at 50 S. Cache St. and 45 and 75 E. Pearl Ave.
Construction is expected to begin in spring 2023.
