Brews, burgers and wings… these are just a few menu items that locally owned and operated Born in a Barn has to offer. Owners Clayton Scholl and Jesse Reece decided to open the barn doors in March 2013. Located at 100 Ivinson St. in the heart of downtown Laramie, Born in a Barn is booming with business. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on weekends the bar is open until 2 a.m.  Offering over fifteen flavors of wings, a full-service bar and patio, 10 varieties of burgers and a wide variety of beer, Born in the Barn is the place to be. After scanning the menu there were a few items on the menu that caught our eye, particularly the Hog Wild Pork wings and Duck wings. On that note, Born in a Barn’s the most unique flavored wing sauce has to be their peanut butter and jelly wings. “The peanut butter and jelly wings are one of our most popular wing choices, people question it at first but once they try it, they are pretty loyal about ordering it again” Scholl said. Their house wings flavors are Garlic Asiago, Yakitori, Sweet Balsamic, Pineapple Sriracha, Tim’s Spicy Garlic and McCready’s Cujo. If you’re not into the house wings they also have Honey BBQ, Spicy BBQ, Texas Jack, Maple Bacon and Sweet and Smoky BBQ flavored wings. The name Born in a Barn originated from the reference to people who leave the door open, (Were you born in a barn?). “It’s just an off-the-wall name I thought of about six years ago,” Scholl said. “I thought, ‘If I ever owned a restaurant I’d call it Born in a Barn.’ So I did.” If you’re looking for wings, burgers or a beer look no further Born in a Barn has it...
