I just got back from a week-long trip to Utah, which included a jaunt north to Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming en route to Yellowstone National Park. Along the way, I tried some amazing beers, and if my Untappd account is valid, I drank a whole lot of them (well, 18).My objective for the trip was to have a blast with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. I achieved that manyfold.
The other objective I had was to learn about the beer culture in Utah — specifically Salt Lake City — and whether the Church of Latter Day Saints had any impact on it.
I did, and it does.
You’ll read more about these discoveries when I profile two breweries (Epic Brewing and Wasatch Brewing) for a Republican-American “Beer Snob” column. I’m also going to write something related to the homebrewer world, perhaps for the column, or perhaps just for here. Stay tuned.
