Iron Fist Beers Coming to Salt Lake

It's getting to the point where we're going to need a new weekly segment called New Brewery Monday or Tuesday or..... You get it. This week's new brewery is also part of the recent San Diego invasion that is currently underway, thanks to Utah Craft Beverages.

Located in Vista California, Iron Fist Brewing Company is a family owned brewery that currently has about twenty beers in their portfolio. Their emphasis seems be on Belgian style ales that tend to stretch the limits of the styles. Some of the description are quite interesting.

To start we will be getting three labels:

Uprising Belgian Style Tripel - Apples, apricot, plum , citrus. Lightly tart. 12% ABV 750ml

Velvet Glove Imperial Oatmeal Stout - Rich roasted chocolate and coffee flavors. 9.0% ABV 750ml

Nelson the ImPALEr - Single hop Nelson Pale. Tropical and Grapefruit with light malt character. 5.0% ABV

These beers will be popping up at local beer bars in the coming weeks, keep checking back for updates.

Also today, Epic's Lil' Brainless Raspberries is finally for sale in SLC. It's been available for a while outside of Utah but the DABC would sell it until Epic's Element 29 inventory had shrunk. Well, it has and now Lil' B-Razz is here. If you haven't had a chance to try some. It has that rich, estery and spicy, Belgian yeast funk backing up the base beer. The raspberry is subtle and tart with some dry and puckering tannin notes. You get some floral bitterness on the back of the tongue. With a finish that is semi tart and dry. The ABV is a pleasant 5.2%. It should be popping up in most stores around the state. As of this post you can find them at the following DABC stores.

Cheers!
