Well, American Craft Beer Week is starting Monday and there a shload of beer related things to do. I've been busy compiling a list of the events that will be happening all over the state. I'm still waiting on a few breweries to get me their events. Stay close for updates as some events are still being finalized. If I've missed something, please let me know so I can add it.

Sample your way through a blind taste test of 4 Wasatch & Squatters craft beers available in both bottle and cans to celebrate American Craft Beer Week.

Class is approximately 2 hours long and guests who properly guess all 4 will receive a take home ACBW Glass.

This release is silky smooth with hints of lemon shortbread and fragrant herbs. It finishes slightly sweet with notes of citrus pith.

Special release of Brett Pale Ale - featured all week: This beer is an untraditional Pale Ale fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis, a unique “wild” yeast associated with the Brussels region of Belgium. The complex aroma combines pine, dandelion, hay, and wool. As a counterpoint to the aroma, the taste is bright and sharp with tangy orange-citrus and spice with underlying hints of dark rye and crust.
