Maple Mountain Brewing Co.

Chatting about the first brewery to hit Provo in decades.
Provo: The last place in the state (next to Hildale) where you'd expect to find a brewery of any kind pop up. In fact, there hasn't been a proper brewery of any stripe in the city since the Nestler Brewing Company went under in 1904.

Movie Reviews: Bad Moms, Nerve, Cafe Society, Jason Bourne,

Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Life Animated
July wraps up with summer action, raunchy comedy and indie entries with a Sundance 2016 pedigree. Woody Allen's latest melancholy period piece, Café Society  (pictured), offers an uneven but acidic look at what people can lose of their souls while pursuing superficial success.

Half & Half Skate and Snow

A chat with the owner of what's becoming SLC's most popular skate shop.
Ever since The Shred Shed was forced to vacate its comfy, awesome home on Exchange Place, the former music venue was looking like an empty hole on what was becoming a revitalized side street in downtown SLC. Earlier this year, the long vacancy was filled with one of the best possible additions to the area we've seen in a while: a skate shop.

The Pipeline: Mercenary Life Gets Rough In 8Days

A reminder that old-school shooters can be hard!
Drop-down games are always a blast—and when they're shooters, it feels a little extra urgent. Something about these games always takes me back to titles like the original Metal Gear, where you have a clear understanding that your death is going to send you straight back to the start, and all your progress will have meant nothing.
