Utah Beer Holds It's own

Every Two years, Breweries from around the world gather to compete in the most prestigious beer competion in the world. 85 beer-style categories were awarded last friday during the World Beer Cup Gala Awards Ceremony in Seattle, Wash.

So, get your collective lazy asses over to one of our award winning brewpubs/breweries and congratulate your local Sudsmeisters.

By the Way, I can't Pimp this Beer enough. If you havn't tried Squatter's IPA, do so now! This India Pale Ale is without-a-doubt one of the best beers made in the world. True to the classic IPA style. There's no reason why these shouldn't be flying off the shelves. Slainte!
