St. George Brewing Company in Utah?

*I added updated info on this post in the comments section below. Cheers!
 
I pride myself on having a semi-descent grasp on Utah's craft beer scene. So I was a little taken back this morning when I came across this federally approved label for beer from a supposedly from a brewery in St. George Utah.

The brewery label is from a brewery called St. George Brewing Company This is not to be confused by the brewery of the same name in Hampton, Va. The beer is an amber ale called Vegas Style that has an ABV of 5.0%. The label doesn't list an address or any manufacturer info. I'm guessing this is contract beer; because I can't find any record of brewery or entity in Utah with this name.

If anyone has any info on this, on know it's origins please share so I can get on with my day.

Cheers!

I heard Strap Tank was opening a location in St. George. Could this be connected to that rumor?

Mikey said...

Yeah, I though about that. It has to belong to a local brewery.

I have an update on this brewery. It is apparently owned by Ellis Island Casino and Brewing out of Las Vegas. It's currently being built in an industrial area in St. George and it will be a production brewery. It appears the breweries main function is feed the Vegas market, but it will also sell in Utah. It will likely have a tasting/taproom at some point as well.

Actually, St. Georges Brewing Company is a partnership with Ellis Island but not owned by Ellis.

Mikey said...

@brewdogg77 So what are their plans for production?

Most of the beer will be shipped to the Vegas market. There will be a tasting room as well as room for events. Canned beer and other merchandise will also be for sale on site.

I’m looking at the building right now. It says Ellis Island brewery on the construction sign

@BustedKnucks Yes, It's owned by Ellis Island Brewery and Casino. I'm curious to see what name actually goes on the building. Thanks for the update!
