The Kiler Grove Winery

This really isn't beer related, but I have a feeling this story can be tweaked to make for some good Utah beer news.

The Kiler Grove Winery is a unique find--an urban winery. The grapes come from California, but will be made into wine here in Utah.

So what's the silver lining for beer geeks here? Lotsa near-by wine barrels for "barrel aging" sour beers!

Located at 53 West Truman Avenue in Salt Lake City, the winery is open for tasting on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 7 p.m.

Cheers!

Meads? Are you F'n kidding me? That's great news!

Desperately seeking mead myself, obviously...

I tried some of the Kiler Grove wine at a party the other week and really enjoyed it. Pretty exciting that this is happening in Utah.

As a freak for Mead, I'm looking forward to seeing what they have going on.
