The Vernal Brewing Company
The whole idea came about after the Bowdens opened up a brand new home brew shop called The Bucket in Vernal, Utah last September. All three are avid home brewers who had always dreamed of starting their own brewery.
The Bucket located at 510 East Main Street in Vernal, is the beginning of a three part plan to bring locally made craft beers to the Uintah Basin. The second part is to construct a 5,000-square-foot brewery (with a tap room) on the property directly adjacent to the Home Brew shop that will be large enough for 20 or 30 visitors. The third part will include a kitchen and garden area for the brewpub.
They will brew four flagship beers available year-round along with specialty beers only available seasonally.
Architectural plans have been drawn up already and groundbreaking scheduled for sometime this spring.
Both the city and county recently passed ordinances for a brewery. Local ordinances for a brewery were written specifically for their venture, because none previously existed in Vernal or Uintah County. The best of luck to Zimmerman and the Bowdens on getting Utah's newest brewery up and running!
And if that's not enough, I have more great news for you. Today is New beer Beer Friday as well and we have some new beers to tell you about.
Also, the Bayou's remaining seasonals have arrived. Struise Tsjeeses Reserva, Mikkeller Santa's Helper, Criminally Bad Elf and Insanely Bad Elf. All are limited in quantity... you know what you need to do.
