I can't remember the last time two breweries opened up in Utah in the same year(if ever). Right now it looks like Epic Brewing And Shades of Pale Brewing are on pace to open months - if not weeks apart.
Below is "Mrs. Shades of Pale" Alexandra Ortiz Fargher cutting concrete for the mop sink drain. As well as SoP's Fermenters.
And over at Epic, Brewmaster Kevin went out to Oregon this week to inspect the JVNW brew house and cellar items. Kevin says "it is beautiful in person". The tanks should be in the brewhouse sometime next month.
I've had a chance to sample some of Epic's potential "home brewed" recipes. I was quite impressed by the styles they presented. It's gunna be a great year for all.
