Ales for ALS and Citra in Red Return

Remember that great, quenching White IPA that Uinta made for ALS research last year? If you don't then you really missed out. No fear! It's back - great cause and all.

 Participant breweries from around the country received a special blend of experimental hops donated by B.T. Loftus Ranches and Hopunion. Last year using these hops, Uinta chose to brew a unique, Session Wheat IPA. It was a huge hit and they've decided to duplicate that same beer again this year.

Uinta's ALS Wheat Ale combines the flavors and body of a wheat ale with the hop characteristics of an IPA. Citrusy with subtle notes of pepper and white grape this wheat-IPA was brewed with forty percent malted wheat and dry hopped with the proprietary Ales for ALS™  experimental hop blend. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to ALS Therapy Development Institute in support of developing effective treatment for Lou Gehrig's disease. More information on the Ales for ALS™ campaign can be found at www.alesforals.com.


This is a small batch series and is only available on tap at Uinta's Tavern and at special Uinta accounts. Should be popping up by the end of the week.

Speaking of great summer beers, Desert Edge's Citra in Red has also returned and is on tap right now.  This is an American red ale at it's base. The malts used provide a nice fruitiness that pairs perfectly with the citrus bitterness from the Citra hops. The result is a quenching full flavored 4% red ale that's like fruit salad in a glass.

It been a scorcher of a week. Trust me, you need these beers.

Cheers!
