Utah Beer


Utah…..such a beautiful place! And guess what? They’ve got good beer too. Never would have thought, several years ago. But it’s booming now.

I recently had a few beers from Utah that I really enjoyed.

Squatter’s IPA in a bottle. It was unbelievably hoppy! But quite good.

Then we had it on tap locally (here in Louisiana). Totally different!! Not very hoppy, but still delicious….something in the transport I guess.

Squatter’s Hop Rising. The ultimate in hoppyness….but I like it that way. Good stuff. (9% alc)

Wasatch Devastator (Double Bock)….high alcohol, dark, rich, and delicious!

I believe these are both brewed by the same company, under the name Utah Beers. Check them out if you have access. I wish we had more Utah beer down here…..who wants to send me some?

PS- did you know that in the state of Utah, you can’t serve beer on tap if it’s over 4%? Yup. So they can’t enjoy all of their own beers on tap. But I noticed that they make most of their beers right at 4% so that they are able to serve them locally.





A Stout, A Porter, and Eel River


First, I can say for sure now, I love Eel River beer! I’ve had their Amber, IPA, and the Imperial Stout. All excellent! I still think the IPA is the “prettiest” beer ever…..the color is really nice. And it’s not too hoppy…just perfect. But alas, I just ran out.



I just had the Stout the other night and it was oh so smooth. Really awesome, but I’ve only seen it in the large bottles here.




I’m officially a fan of Eel River Organic brewing!


I also love the various Rogue stouts, like the Chocolate Stout and the Oatmeal Stout. Dark, coffee, deliciousness 🙂




And of course there’s Stone‘s Smoked Porter. ‘Nuff said.






Tonight I’m trying Saint Arnold’s Spring seasonal: Bock.  I’ve really enjoyed their other brews, so I anticipate enjoying this one. I’ll let you know!
