Uinta's Porter: Best in the Rockies/Southwest

More than 370 beers from 102 breweries were sampled at the 15th annual United States Beer Tasting Championship, earlier this month in Chicago. Of those Uinta Brewing Co., King's Peak Porter was named the Rockies/Southwest "Regional Champion" in the porter category.



Uinta’s XIV Anniversary Barley Wine also received an honorable mention in the barley wine category.




These really are two outstanding beers. King's Peak Porter has always been staple in my fridge, and the Barley Wine... well it's in a class all it's own. King's Peak is available in most grocery stores and the Anniversary Barley Wine is available at all Utah liquor stores. Cheers and Congrats!
