Todays tidbit? Well, it looks like there's a new brewery destined to set up shop in Salt Lake. Epic Brewing will be the first Utah brewery since prohibition began to only brew and sell beer that contains more than 4.0% abv. Definatly a unique concept for a Utah brewery.
The People behind Epic are reportedly beer geeks with sizable backing looking to test Utah's apatite for big beers.
This new brewery will reportedly do no signature labels. All the beers produced will be seasonals or will have limited availability. I don't know how that will work, but I guess we'll see.
It's apparently a pretty hot gig. Brewers from all over the U.S. Have been applying for it. It'd be nice if a local guy could land it.
No info yet on when production will begin or where the brewery will be located. But a years time is not out of the question.
What do you think. Will Utah's beer drinkers be able to sustain a brewery such as this? Will you be willing to drive to the brewery or liquor store to get these beers vs. Hitting your local Qwik-E-Mart for some quick 4.0% suds?
Or is it too much too soon?
