I don’t think I have mentioned the beers of Utah but in keeping with the 50 Beers – 50 States theme, let me introduce you to some Salt Lake City beer…
“Uinta Brewing was established in 1993 to produce fresh, full-flavored beers for distribution. Named after Utah’s highest mountain range, Uinta was the first distributing craft brewed brewery in Salt Lake City.
At the time, no other brewery was concentrating on supplying the demands of Utah’s many pubs and restaurants. Our brews quickly gained a strong following.
The requests for bottled beer became louder and more frequent. In 1996, Uinta began to bottle its award-winning beers and quickly grew to become the largest craft brewery in Utah. In 2006, Uinta produced over 17,000 barrels. Cutthroat Pale Ale, Uinta’s flagship brand, is now the number one selling craft beer in the state. Uinta Brewing Company is now one of the top 50 volume producing craft breweries in the USA.
Uinta moved into a new facility in 2001. The 26,000 square foot brewery is located in the southwest section of Salt Lake City at 1722 South Fremont Drive (2375 West) and is open for tours and tastings weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.. Please call ahead to check for tour availability so we can accommodate you or your group.”
