Bottle Conditioning at Squatters

Last Friday the crew at Squatters began bottle conditioning for the first time at the brew pub. This is a great thing for Squatters. It gives Jenny and the crew a little more independence from the Utah Brewers Co-op. Now they don't have to rely on UBC's bottling facility every time they want to produce high gravity and unusual styles for Utah's Beer lovers. Squatters first bottle conditioned beer is called Fifth Element. It's a wood barrel aged sour beer that should be available at Squatters in about a month. Congrats Guys!

Also, Jenny was the guest on last Sunday's The Sunday Session an online craft beer radio program on the Brewing Network. They discussed low gravity beers, strange Utah beer laws, ect... Thanks for representing, Jenny! Here's a link to the mp3. Cheers.

Thanks for the link. No need to say it, but I am in search of that new Squatters beer. Any word on its availability, will it be sold only at the brewpub?

Not as yet. I would assume 30 days for conditioning would be an appropriate amount of time. considering the style and that they were hand bottled, it would be a safe bet it'll only be available at Squatters downtown, Park City and maybe the airport brewpub.

Yeah that is what I figured. Man I wish we could get some distribution for these special beers like the Ava Lee and this one. Even a very limited one.

It's fermenting as we speak! I'll let you know when it's done and we'll kill a few.
