For this Friday the 13th edition of New Beer Friday we have a shload of local offerings to cancel out all the bad jou-jou the day may bring.
Roosters Lightning 388: Named for the 388th Operations Support Squadron, the
US Air Force’s largest combat-ready group of F-16 Fighter Falcons. Lightning 388 is light-brown ale brewed with seasonally available Carabrown malt that lends a toasty, biscuit-like flavor to the beer. It
is hopped to compliment rather than overshadow the highlighted
maltiness. @Roosters in Layton
Squatters Emerson Ave Pale Ale: Pours a murky deep amber color with a sturdy two & a half fingers of
beige foam. The nose is floral with light citrus and berry notes -
clean toasty malts also present. The taste starts bitter with
grapefruit/citrus rind notes. The toasty malts pop
through for just a bit, but then the bitterness comes back to linger in
the finish atop biscuity malts. 6% abv. Available at Squatters locations/Bottleshop.
Squatters Slap & Tickle: This is a simple, single malt - single hop ale made with Marris-otter and I think Kent Golding hops. @Squatters locations
Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale: The nose is as you'd expect, with loads of pumpkin spices. The flavor
follows suit. Pumpkin notes are present, as is cinnamon and
nutmeg. There is also some toffee and biscuit malt in the finish. Medium
mouthfeel and carbonation. @Grocery stores & various tap handles.
There is a very, very limited batch of Utah Sage Saison at Epic's bottle shop and Uinta's Bristlecone Brown Ale is back as well and is in wide distribution.
For your Firkin Friday enjoyment today, look forward to Desert Edge's UPA aged in a neutralized bourbon barrel
at the Bayou. Poplar St. Pub is pouring the UBC's Crimson Ale in support of the Utes in their game against Oregon St. Tomorrow.
