Recently the Park City Brewery opened becoming the new kid (brewery) on the local beer scene in quite some time. Their reign as the new brewery was short lived as 2 Row Brewing soon took over as the "new newness". They're title will soon be crushed later this year by Proper Brewing Company. Now it looks like even the Proper Brewing tenure may be outdone by even another local brewery, The Talisman Brewing Company.
At the beginning of December last year we were the first to tell you about Ogden's newest brewery in planning. As of then, owners Dustin and Joann Williams were in the process of inking a deal with the City of Ogden to get a space in the downtown area. That deal is done and Talisman Brewing will now occupy a space off of 12st.
As the photo to the right shows, construction has already begun on renovating and plumbing the new brewery. Look for a 2200sqft bottle-shop and a tavern to accompany the new 7bbl brewing system that will produce beers ranging from 4.5 % - 8.0% ABV. "We aren’t messing around with the low ABV stuff". Dustin told me last year. And as far as food is concerned local food trucks will service customers empty bellies.
There is no hard date as of yet, but licenses are currently being acquired. Dustin (Dusty) tells me that, "we are just hoping to expand the craft beer culture and vibe
into the northern parts of Utah and do so with with unique attributes
that are not necessarily being done yet here in Utah". What do you think, Wasatch Front? Do you have the room in your fridge for another local craft brand? Goddamn right you do!
Also, this weekend Snowbird is having their Seventh Annual Brewfest. 20 local and national breweries will each be sampling 3-5 of their
finest brews this weekend on the Plaza Deck. There will also be live
music, food stations and over 15 crafters/vendors pedaling their wares. The event is being held on June 13 - June 14,
12 pm - 6 pm.
