Quench your thirst with a variety of seasonal flavors.

Do The Time Warp

Revisiting classic and influential Utah beers.

A Visit to Funky Town

Two different Belgians offer a change of pace.

To Helles and Back

A tale of two Bohemian brews.
There aren't many markets in the U.S. that can boast breweries specializing in lagered beers, but Salt Lake City is lucky enough to have one of them.

Cloudy With a Chance of IPA

Hazy or not, we all win.
I'm not 100 percent sure, but I'm pretty confident there's a law out there demanding that all breweries—no matter where they are—produce at least one Northeast-style IPA.

Straight and Narrow

RoHa Brewing Project's beers keep it classic.
The RoHa Brewing Project has been working hard to push the concept of non-gimmicky beers to Utah's craft-beer lovers.

April Is for Beer Lovers

Two cities; one month of celebrating craft beer.
Since you're already reading this, I probably don't have to tell you that the craft beer scene in Utah is on pace to become one of the state's larger economic success stories.

A Fruitful Discussion

Passion fruit vs. orange make for two very different beers.
Whenever possible, I like to try get all of the flavor details on the newest local offerings hitting Utah's craft beer scene.

None the 'Weiser

Don't balk at Pilsners just because they're mainstream.
One of the perks of my job is having acces to local brewhouses and chatting with the brewers.

Spurious Spirits

These local beers masquerade as classic cocktails.
A few weeks ago, this column got into apple beers to see if they were just cider wannabes or legitimate beers that happen to use apples.

Under the Radar

These two local beers require your attention.
I love talking beer, whether it's here at City Weekly or in a random pub.

Navigating India Pale Ales

A map of the ever-expanding IPA landscape.
There's no doubt that India pale ales are huge right now.

The Old & the Beautiful

Strap Tank Brewing Co. barrells into aged beers.
"Utah County" and "craft beer" aren't usually uttered in the same sentence together.

An Apple Ale a Day

Walking the blurry line between beer and cider
On my most recent trip to the beer aisle, I noticed an odd trend:

Seeing Red

Boneyard's new brew is bloody good.
Way back in the early 1970s, when I was a but a wee lad, my memories of beer were simple and innocent.

Cutting Edge

Trolley Square's classic Desert Edge Brewery at The Pub isn't just for nostalgia.
Few institutions in Salt Lake City invoke more of a sense of nostalgia in folks of a certain age than The Pub.

Oasis of Beer

Moab Brewery offerings are not just for the desert.
The odds are pretty good that if you've spent any amount of time in southern Utah, you've washed the dust from your throat at the Moab Brewery.

The City's New Beer Mile

SLC packs four breweries into one sudsy stretch.
Last summer, I scoped out what I dubbed the Midvale Brewery Mile—three breweries that stretch down 7200 South in Midvale.
