Unsacred Brewing's owners wish to remain behind the curtain for the time being, because they are about to commit an act they swore they'd never do, make 4% beer.
"We are committing a sin against ourselves by creating Utah’s newest
line of 3.2 percent beer,"quipped one anonymous owner. "But Utah’s laws
have made it difficult for us to be true to our original intentions."
If you read between the lines you'll have no problem figuring out who
the culprits are. This new line of beers will have light-hearted themes,
that promises to poke fun Utah's ultra conservative - anti-adult machine.
Later this month the brewery will release four beers to consumers, three
of which have tongue in cheek themes that Utah's beer lovers have come to know and
love. Priesthood Pale Ale, The Vision Lager and Unfaithful IPA.
Unsacred also will offer Rimando’s Wit, named after Reâl Salt Lake Goalkeeper Nick
Rimando. Priesthood Pale Ale will be a traditional pale ale with a spicy hop profile. The Vision Lager will be a light, sessionable, American-style lager with a clean, crisp, pilsner malt finish, and Unfaithful IPA will be a hoppy India pale ale. Finally, Rimando’s Wit will use a special Wit strain of yeast along with bitter and sweet orange peel, grains of paradise and ginger.
If you live in Northern Utah there will be events and draft parties all
over Ogden on January 30. Similar events in Salt Lake will take place
the next day on January 31st. Bottles will be available in grocery
stores by late February or early March. Golden Beverage Company from
Ogden will be the distributor for Unsacred Brewing in Northern Utah.
I for one am happy for the new 4% additions. I love flavorful session
beers! We'll keep you in the loop as to what the events are the closer
we get to debut time or you can check out Unsacred's Facebook Page.
