Southern Utah tends to get left out of a lot of Utah's beer events. It's not that there's no passion for beer south of of I-70, it just comes down to population. The Wasatch Front And Back is the densest population center in the state so It makes sence that the majority of beer gatherings end up in the north.
Zion Canyon Brewing does a good job with their "Beer & Gear" and "Earth Day" festivals but there have been little to no full scope beer festivals...'till now.
On august 21, 2010 Brian Head Resort will be be the spot for the first Annual Festival of Flavors. Hosted by the Grand Lodge and Cedar Breaks Lodge the festival will feature beer from at least eleven Utah breweries and wine from The Castle Creek Winery. A small beer competition is also scheduled to take place.
Beers being poured will include high alcohol (4.0% +) offerings from Utah breweries that choose to bring them.
Food, music and lodging will also be available. We'll bring more info as the date get's nearer.
