Canyon Brewing Company

Are you sick of hearing about all of the new breweries that are making their way into our lives? Me neither! So when I heard that more local home brewers are turning their hobby into a profession, I thought, Bring it on! Let's change our state's name to Brewtah!

Canyon Brewing was conceived by three friends brought together by love of music and beer. Their approach will basically be, share the love of beer. Between the three of them they have the brewing skills and the business acumen, why not?

The Brewery is set to debut with four beers. Bishop’s Storehouse Stout that is described as a dark brown full-body export style stout characterized by a rich blend of caramel, chocolate and coffee flavors - Hidden Peak India Pale Ale: a bold IPA that offers a perfect balance of barley, aromatic hops with a grapefruiti finish - Slot Canyon Pale Ale: a fuller-bodied, pale golden ale, that balances malty sweetness with the piney, citrusy flavor of Cascade hops - Slow Train Steam Beer has a golden amber color that refreshes like a larger. Citrusy hops give this classic American Beer a new-style American update. All beers will be made to ABV style.

Canyon Brewing is looking to purchase a Czech made 10hl Brew System (about 8.5 bbl) and hopes to be brewing with it mid 2015. Updates to follow. Go Brewtah!

Prost!

Clever logo.

They should cut their losses right now and rename the steam beer. Anchor is very aggressive about protecting their trademark on steam. A brewery here in Chicago had to dump (read: give away to tours) a ton of beer they had called steam.

Where will they be located?

Ray said...

Sean is an amazing brewer I'm excited for him and business partners and to drink more of his beer ! Cheers

Any idea where they are looking to locate?

Justin, they had been looking at the Brickyard area but that location fell through. They'll update us as soon as a new location is approved.

Cool, thanks for the answer Mikey. I'm so confused why breweries aren't chomping at the bit to get into cottonwood heights area. The porcupine is always packed and who wouldn't want to take advantage of the ski crowds.

One of the main issues with that area is pricey rent and zoning restrictions on manufacturering. I think the Old Mill would make a brilliant destination brewery.

Hi Greg, we are aware of the "Steam" issue and will definitely find another name. At this point, everything is a work in progress.

Regarding location, we are looking for sites. If anyone is aware of a decent space, we are all ears. We are interested in about 3000 sq ft, parking, truck and foot traffic access, reasonably priced, and 300 yds from any school or church. Not too many mods required for water, electricity, etc. Contact us on our Facebook page, or message us.
