New & Noteworthy.
It looks as if two new Utah breweries will open their doors in October.
Policy Kings Brewery, in Cedar City, started selling beer on Oct. 16. And T.F. Brewing, in Salt Lake's Granary District, is scheduled to pour its first pints on Oct. 26.
Cheers and congratulations to Utah's newest breweries. I can't wait to try your beers.
In addition, an existing brewery — Shades of Pale Brewing Co. — recently underwent a rebrand. With it, the South Salt Lake brewery, founded in 2010, unveiled new labels, marketing materials and, yes, a new name.
It will be known simply as Shades Brewing, which isn't so different from how everyone refers to it anyway, chief marketing officer Dave Murray explains.
But there's more to it than that. You can read the entire article and listen to a podcast episode recorded in the Shades Brewing barrel room.
