Snake River Brewing Returns to Salt Lake

After an absence of about ten years, Snake River Brewing Company is returning to The Wasatch Front. Not really sure why Snake River packed it in, but it was most likely financial reasons. Anyway they're due back soon.

Look for five beers to start with from their base line-up of beers.

Monarch Pilsner - A floral and herbal pils with some light malts a touch of lemon zest. 

Jenny Lake Lager - an amber colored Vienna style lager. The rich, caramel flavor is balanced with the use of several hop varieties.

Snake River Pale Ale - an American pale brewed with plenty of Cascade hops. It has a citrusy hop flavor which is followed by a crisp, firmly bitter finish.

Pako's IPA - This IPA will have the hopheads rejoicing. 6.8% ABV and 60+ IBUs with explosive hop aroma from a pungent Simcoe/columbus blend.

Zonker Stout - A rich, well-balanced foreign style stout with a huge amount of roasted barley as well as chocolate, black, and caramel malts.

Utah Craft Beverages will be bringing these in. As soon as they pop up we'll spread the love.

Also, today is Growler Day at Epic Brewing. This week's offering is Hop Syndrome - A perfect beer for the Labor Day weekend. These growlers sell fast, don't wait too long. And as always - don't forget your exchange growler.

Cheers!
