Re: “The Beer Mile

Salt City Brew Supply is also on 7200 south in the "beer mile". If you fancy yourself a beer need and want to learn how to make it yourself, stop by and see them.

Re: “Wine Trends for 2017

Ted - I could not agree more with your comment, "I think unpredictable food and wine pairings will become more acceptable and common this year." I'm so bullish on the concept, I started a company that creates unique pairings shipped monthly. It's called VinoPair. Thanks!

Re: “The Politics of Beer

The Utah Brewers Guild has NEVER proposed a "no limit" or substantially higher limit bill.

This is straight damage control.

The "Little Bobby" speech betrays the idea that the Brewers Guild actually supports higher limits. That speech (look it up people) was 100% in support of the 4% limit, using scare tactics that our LDS legislators would eat up with jumbo sized spoons.

Look for my entry in the Lagerpalooza, "Little Bobby's Lager" a Pre-Prohibition Lager, dedicated to making sure Little Bobby doesn't have to go without his "normal" 2 beers from his parent's 6-pack.

Shame on you Robert Jensen. Sell your stake in Red Rock and leave Utah. Leave Utah.

Re: “Sharing is Caring

You might not have known this, but Avenues Proper has had at least one if not two local guest taps since it opened in 2013, making it the first brewery in Utah to offer another brewery's beer. It's sister location and production brewery, Proper Brewing Co. has offered a local guest tap since it's opening last year. Both of these locations have been offering guest taps before Fisher and Roha were even open, yet there is no mention of this in your article. I'm happy that you are showcasing this cool thing that local breweries are doing, and I'm all for the success of Fisher and Roha, but you are omitting the real trailblazers- Rio and the boys at Proper, who were the first to bring this practice to the Salt Lake City beer scene, and I think they deserve some credit as well.

Just my two cents. I enjoy your writing and look forward to your other articles. Thank you.

Re: “An Apple Ale a Day

I LOVE Mtn West Ciders! As a celiac (not a choice - if I could Id be drinking beers and munchin on cake all day everyday) these ciders are such a refreshing change from the candy sweet Angry Orchard and the like. The ABV is great - more bang for your buck- and the light bubbles feel kinda champagney in a way. Mtn West is my JAM. 100%. 10 million stars. THANK YOU FOR MAKING AMAZING DRINKS!

Re: “The Beer Mile

My husband and I have been going to Hoppers since the day it opened, it has consistently proven to be the "go-to" place to meet the friendliest people, have family and/friend events and to eat great food! Do they have bad nights??? Of course they do, but the good FAR outweighs the bad. Brock, the manager is THE classiest and one most conscientious and genuine person I have known. The "regulars" are far from regular too..they are awesome!

Re: “Don't Fear the Dark Side

I'm going to add some nuance to this women-hate-dark-beer stereotype by saying, as a woman, I LOVE dark beer. So much so that I've only recently started to give lighter beers a chance.

Also, PSA time: If you've never tried something and you scoff at it, you're doing life wrong. Try everything you can. And don't be a dick about what other people are drinking!

Re: “Navigating India Pale Ales

So give us some retro IPAs. I loved Full Sail Classic IPA, until they "modernized" it.

Re: “Wine Trends for 2017

I totally agree with the text. I would only add that non food wine pairings would increase, for example wine and movie, wine and books etc. Because wine is not just a meredrink but an object of culture, too.

Re: “Utah Wine Economics 101

My Fave restaurant when I used to live in Dallas charged $2.50 per person corkage fee which I found very reasonable. There is no shortage of competition for wines in Dallas.

Re: “Bourgeois Bargains

I can't help but wonder why you read my columns, KB, since they seem to agitate you so. Although, I notice that your missives come in the middle of the night, so maybe you're just sleep-deprived. You're holding a 19 year grudge about a Park City restaurant I reviewed two decades ago (get over it) and now you point out that "All Bordeaux wines are grossly overpriced...." and "I'd never buy any French wine...." There are plenty of other fine food and wine writers out there. I can't understand why you're so obsessed with this one. I feel sad (for you) that you waste so much energy hating me, without even knowing me. There must be better ways to use your time and intellect.

Re: “A Taste of Belgium à la Utah

Are Strap Tank's beers available in the SLC area, or just at the brewery?

Re: “Beer Trek
