Welcome to 2019.
Let me be one of the last (for 2019, at least) to wish you a Happy New Year. I hope your year is off to as good a start as ours is at Utah Beer News.
The year ahead will be hard-pressed to match what turned out to be a remarkable 2018 in Utah beer.
But with several new breweries eyeing 2019 openings, and with existing establishments gaining stronger footholds and followings — and continuing to brew great beer — I'm confident Utah craft beer drinkers will be well served over the next 11+ months.
