Dog Day Refreshment

Two new offerings with big flavor and big drinkability.

Opposites Attract

Two beers that represent distinctly tasty ends of the brewing spectrum.

Dog Day Refreshment

Two new offerings with big flavor and big drinkability.
When the full heat of summer hits us high desert folk, we chase the beers that offer big flavor while still maintaining those hydrating elements.

High Noon for Low Point

If 4% beers are soon to vanish, grab a couple of the best examples.
I thought it might be nice to highlight some of the better examples of what's floating around out there.

Chichi Beer

Does a flamboyant name make it a great brew?
Your tongue may get a workout in more ways than one.


Thirst-quenching craft Mexican lager is alive and well in O-town.
If you've been away from this south-of-the-border classic, you're probably missing out on one of the most flavorful ways to beat the heat.

The Yin and Yang of IPAs

Now there's no excuse for not enjoying IPAs.
No matter if you love them or hate them, I found two new IPAs that are just different enough to make both factions grin.

Barreling Along

Top of Main series breathes new life into Wasatch Brewery.
It was the first and only local brewery to open in Utah since Lucky Lager closed shop in the 1960s. Every beer that came out of Wasatch was innovative, because every beer was a first locally.

Beer Bash

These party beers are soirées for the tongue.
No matter which beer you choose to go with, rest assured that there will be a party in your mouth.

Beyond the Pale

Two pale ales that are as diverse as the countries that make them.
This week, I found a couple of ales that take their cues from two very different beer cultures: Belgium and Australia.

The Bolder Side of IPAs

Thick and chewy on a hot day can be a blast, too.
It doesn't matter if it's thick and chewy, bold or robust; if you find that brilliant malt and hop combo, you'll do anything to keep chasing that beer dragon.

A Taste of Belgium à la Utah

Two local brews showcase some European classics.
These two—brand new additions to our local beer scene—take the best of Belgium and sprinkle in just enough of Utah to make them perfect for our summer climate and palates.

Ale Talk

Two new offerings tell uniquely flavorful stories.
These of course aren't actual people I'm talking about, but local craft ales.

Summer Brewin'

Two beers designed to make you have a blast.
To be honest, when I first took this gig, I imagined there would be times when the beer scene would become repetitive or slide into territory that seemed too familiar.

Springing Back and Forth

Yoyo-ing weather requires beers that boomerang.
I locked onto two brews while experiencing all three over the course of an hour last week, and these beers could not have paired better with this spring's crazy yoyo-ing weather.

Altered States

Familiar beer styles transform into something new and refreshing.
If you have an adventurous palate, these ales will invigorate—and remind you why you fell in love with craft beer in the first place.

Keep It Local

Craft becomes the state's first Utah-beer-only pub.
As a result, a new concept in beer pubs has emerged—one that exclusively serves up the best of what Utah has to offer.

Novel-Tasting Beers

If beers were books, these would be page turners.
This week, I chose two beers that bend their respective styles just enough to make them tease the palate with exciting twists and turns; you'd think you were reading a spy novel.
