Utah Beer News | August 2018

Back to School.

Hello and welcome to the Utah Beer News email update. As our social feeds fill with first-day-of-school photos, let's raise a collective glass to the parents who survived summer and to the teachers who secretly hoped it would never end.

Speaking of education, next week I'm scheduled to meet with Nicole Dicou, the new executive director of the Utah Brewers Guild. I chatted with her briefly at last weekend's Utah Beer Festival, and I'm excited to learn more about the organization and how it serves Utah's craft beer community.

That said, if you have beer-related questions you'd like me to ask Nicole, send them my way by Aug. 26 and I'll do my best to work them into the interview.  

As I write this, I'm hanging on to summer by drinking a Lime Pilsner from Uinta Brewing. How about you?


THANK YOU, as always, for subscribing. It's greatly appreciated. And welcome to the new subscribers! We've added quite a few since our last beer-fueled dispatch, so thank you for joining us!

Beer Book: Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out

Craft beer enthusiasts and beer history buffs will find a lot to like about Josh Noel's Barrel-Aged Stout and Selling Out. As my review illustrates, it's more than simply the story of Goose Island's 2011 sale to Anheuser-Busch; it's also a fascinating look at the craft beer landscape since the sale.
