    3 Beers with Joey at Slackwater Sandy - December 2021

    3 Beers with Joey at Slackwater Sandy - December 2021

    We’re back with another visit with Joey Cardaccio, the beer and service manager at Slackwater Pub & Pizzeria in Sandy. Each month we visit with Joey for our Virtual Taproom and 3 Beers with Joey segment that you can watch now on the Utah Beer News YouTube Channel.
    I like to share these mini-podcasts for your listening pleasure in case you’re on the go and can’t be distracted with the video portion of the episode.
    This month Joey highlights three beers that are worth checking out.
    The three beers we talk about this month are:
    War on Xmas White Milk Stout with Spices (Illuminated Brew Works) Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2021 Winter Warmer (Anchor Brewing) Cinnamon Dolce Nitro Stout (Firestone Walker Brewing) Give a listen to learn more about these three beers. Joey also gives us the scoop on events happening at Slackwater in December 2021 — including a can takeover featuring Grid City Beer Works (Dec. 15).
    We recorded our conversation on Dec. 6, 2021, and, as I mentioned, you can catch the full video on our YouTube channel, as well as on our Facebook Page.
    Thanks to Joey for taking the time to talk with Utah Beer News. And thank you for listening. If you enjoy this type of storytelling, I’d really appreciate if you could please leave a review on your podcast platform of choice.

    Virtual Taproom: Park City Brewing

    Virtual Taproom: Park City Brewing

    You’re listening to our Virtual Taproom visit with Jeff Tito, president of the all-new Park City Brewing. These brief Virtual Taproom conversations are recorded via Zoom and the video is available now on the Utah Beer News YouTube channel.
    As I’ve done with previous Virtual Taproom episodes, I wanted to share the audio portion with the Utah Beer News podcast listeners. Rather than the more in-depth interviews and brewery histories typical of our podcast episodes, these bite-sized conversations feature more so-called “newsy” information. We talk about new beer releases, upcoming events, and general happenings at Utah’s craft breweries.
    If you’re in the Utah beer industry and would like to be a guest on an upcoming episode, please send me an email at tim@utahbeernews.com.
    For this one, Jeff talks about the distinction between Park City Brewery, which had operated in Utah for several years, and this new venture — Park City Brewing. He also describes the beers that are available out of the gate, the plans for a Park City-based taproom in the coming months (and a Salt Lake taproom later in 2022), and what it means to “create quality beer for locals, by the locals.”
    We recorded our conversation on Nov. 10, 2021, and, as I mentioned, you can catch the full video on our YouTube channel, as well as on our Facebook Page.
    Thanks to Jeff for taking the time to talk with Utah Beer News. And thank you for listening. If you enjoy this type of storytelling, I’d really appreciate if you could please leave a review on your podcast platform of choice.

These brief Virtual Taproom conversations are recorded via Zoom and the video is available now on the Utah Beer News YouTube channel.

    For this one, we get to hear about an important beer now pouring at Wasatch Brewery locations. Brave Noise Beer is a nationwide collaboration designed to advocate for safe spaces and inclusive environments. Breweries are banding together to brew a pale ale and at the same time make their code of conduct policies easily accessible to the public.
    We also talk about Wasatch Brewery’s 35th Anniversary, which officially takes place on Oct. 22, 2021. A lot has changed in the Utah craft beer landscape over the last three-and-a-half decades, but Wasatch remains an industry leader. Learn how you can help the trailblazing brewery celebrate 35 years.
    We recorded our conversation on Oct. 19, 2021, and, as I mentioned, you can catch the full video on our YouTube channel, as well as on our Facebook Page.

    Oh, and perhaps the biggest news — Talisman is patiently waiting for the arrival of its new canning line. That will allow the brewery to put together six- and 12-packs of its beer going forward.
    We recorded our conversation on October 5, 2021, and, as I mentioned, you can catch the full video on our YouTube channel, as well as on our Facebook Page.
