When Kevin Templin is asked to describe who he is—he starts with dad. Then brother. Then son. And finally, “brewer, I guess.” Not to take anything away from the first three identifiers but Templin is most definitely a brewer—and an extremely successful one at that. The founder and head brewer at Templin Family Brewing (or T.F. Brewing, for short) b…

It’s no secret that the last year has proved to be a monumental stress test for Utah’s hospitality industry. And while several local breweries bent to a seemingly impossible degree, none broke. They are all still here and continuing to deliver delicious beers. In this episode of the podcast, we chat with Jeremy Ragonese, president of Uinta Brewing …
 
A recession and a hops shortage didn’t dissuade a trio of beer-loving visionaries from opening a brewery in the heart of craft beer country.

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Utah Beer News Beer Bracket Battle. Longtime listeners of the podcast might remember that our inaugural Beer Bracket Battle had hit the airwaves just as non-essential businesses were forced to shut down in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. That was last March. It seems like much longer, though, doesn’t it? As a re…
 
Episode 45 of the Utah Beer News Podcast strays from its typical format. As listeners of the podcast know, generally, I like to sit down with brewers and let them share their stories. But for this episode, it's just me. I don’t have a guest, but I hope you’ll give it a listen. Here's what you can expect in the podcast episode, with approximate time…
 
There’s something to be said for a barrel-aged beer. In an era of “rotation nation” in which beer drinkers clamor for a constant stream of new beers, the time and patience and technique it takes to blend beer and barrel into a single entity — capturing the soul of the base beer and the essence of the barrel is truly something to savor. Salt Lake Ci…

Today on the Utah Beer News Podcast you’ll hear from one of Utah’s relatively few certified beer judges.

Chris Jacobs grew up 45 minutes from Sierra Nevada Brewery in Northern California.

As I mention in the introduction to each episode, we talk to the brewers, breweries, and everyday imbibers who contribute to the Utah craft beer community. Ben Raskin is an everyday imbiber.

Cerveza Zólupez Beer Company sold its first bottle of beer in late 2018.

As much as he tried, Chávez just couldn’t fin…

Determined and Resilient. Those are two words that definitely describe the folks responsible for bringing Grid City Beer Works to life. The idea for Utah’s newest brewery began six years ago.

A markedly different craft beer landscape greeted Slackwater Pizzeria & Pub when it opened in Ogden in 2011. The most recent craft beer boom was in its infancy.

Ogden is becoming quite the hot spot for craft beer. One brewery that’s contributing to that growth is Talisman Brewing Company. The husband-and-wife-operated brewery opened in 2016. It has served as a trailblazer of sorts for would-be production breweries in the northern part of the state. We sat down with co-owners Dusty and Joann Williams to lea…
