Believe it or not, Oktoberfest time is upon us! Snowbird Resort once again will host the 38th Annual Snowbird Oktoberfest beginning this weekend on August 21st.
The seventeen-day celebration (every Sat & Sun through Oct 10) Attracts over 50,000 visitors and has grown to become one of the largest festivals in the state of Utah. Oktoberfest includes Oktoberfest Halle featuring the tastes of Bavaria with entertainment from local and national yodelers, German bands and even Alpenhorns.
Of course beer will be available some of the local craft options include Uinta's Black Bier, Punk’n Harvest Ale, Cutthroat Pale Ale, Golden Spike Hefeweizen, WYLD Organic Pale Ale and Bohemian Brewing's Pilsner.
Also today Mark at the Bayou just received a shipment of Lagunitas Hop Stoopid. This is the first time Lagunuitas' beers have been available in Utah. Now that they're in the system, Mark is hoping he can start getting more of their labels.
If you couldn't tell by the name Hop Stoopid is an 8% Double IPA. It has big grapefruit, pineapple and peach notes with touch of pine and floral hops in the finish. It's quite delicious.
