Talisman Brewing Company

If you think the new brewery trend is slowing down around the Wasatch Front, think again. Ogden is about to get a new brewery to fill the limbo-esque gap that Ruby River has left open. Husband and wife team: Dusty and Joann Williams have been craft beer enthusiasts for several years and are now ready to take their shared passion to the net level.

Talisman Brewing Company is currently working with Ogden City officials to iron out all the zoning requirements for the brewery. Dusty says, Ogden officials are eager to have their operation in their city. The operation will initially be operating at the Nano level on a 3bbl system and will have some 6bbl fermenters. The brewery will likely expand as demand grows.

Expect to see five flagship beers as well as a 6th beer that will be a season/rotational. Talisman will  initially start off with ales but will incorporate lagers as the brewery grows. Their five beers will be a Hefeweizen, Red Ale, Pale Ale, IPA, and a Porter. The ABV will range from around 4.5% - 8.0%. Dusty says they will be specializing in high point craft beer. "We aren’t messing around with the low ABV stuff". Look for this to be a production brewery with an onsite beer store, "tap room" for tastings and small menu food. Their main focus will be to sell onsite as well as distributing to select restaurants and bars. Once they build their volumes, the intend is to expand distribution to state liquor stores and Military installations.

Once the property has been nailed down they'll have a better idea of when brewing can commence. We'll (of course) keep you updated. Please feel free to join their social media accounts. Cheers!Congratulation, Dusty and Joann!

Finally, a brewery crafting a red ale as one of their flagships. Now I just hope it's actually a red and not just another amber. Utah lacks in a truly malt forward red ale.
