Uinta’s Sea Legs

I was surprised with this gem today! I’ve been dying to try it. This is from Utah’s Uinta Brewing’s craft series…I’ve had the Birthday Suit and really liked it. Hope this one is just as good.

Falling in Love with Red Ales

I’ve never really been into red ales, but I’ve realized it’s because I haven’t found the red ale I like. And voilà! Thank you Heretic Brewing’s “Evil Twin,” for a flavorful, rich beer with just a hint of bitter that lingers, for changing how I feel about reds.
