Unsacred Brewing

There's a new brewing company coming to Utah soon... Very soon - actually in a couple of weeks. Unsacred Brewing's owners wish to remain behind the curtain for the time being, because they are about to commit an act they swore they'd never do, make 4% beer.

"We are committing a sin against ourselves by creating Utah’s newest line of 3.2 percent beer,"quipped one anonymous owner. "But Utah’s laws have made it difficult for us to be true to our original intentions."

If you read between the lines you'll have no problem figuring out who the culprits are. This new line of beers will have light-hearted themes, that promises to poke fun Utah's ultra conservative - anti-adult machine.

Later this month the brewery will release four beers to consumers, three of which have tongue in cheek themes that Utah's beer lovers have come to know and love. Priesthood Pale Ale, The Vision Lager and Unfaithful IPA. Unsacred also will offer Rimando’s Wit, named after Re├ól Salt Lake Goalkeeper Nick Rimando. Priesthood Pale Ale will be a traditional pale ale with a spicy hop profile. The Vision Lager will be a light, sessionable, American-style lager with a clean, crisp, pilsner malt finish, and Unfaithful IPA will be a hoppy India pale ale. Finally, Rimando’s Wit will use a special Wit strain of yeast along with bitter and sweet orange peel, grains of paradise and ginger.

If you live in Northern Utah there will be events and draft parties all over Ogden on January 30. Similar events in Salt Lake will take place the next day on January 31st.  Bottles will be available in grocery stores by late February or early March. Golden Beverage Company from Ogden will be the distributor for Unsacred Brewing in Northern Utah.

I for one am happy for the new 4% additions. I love flavorful session beers! We'll keep you in the loop as to what the events are the closer we get to debut time or you can check out Unsacred's Facebook Page.


Cheers!

So where is the brewery located at? Who is the head brewer?

I mean, some of this is obvious, but I'm still wondering...

Bohemian and Desert Edge provide some fine, flavorful beers @ 3.2. I'm very happy to see another option on local session beers! ~m

The Wit is awesome! Unsacred is on tap NOW at Beer Hive and a few of the other downtown bars. We have to wait for the bottles :-(

Oh god... Golden beverages is distributing it... Well, so much for the launch, they'll stock in once and you won't see it for another year until one of their better merchandisers happens to stop in shopping one day and accidentally walks by the section he was supposed to fill. Worst vendor company in the world, bad decision unsacred.
