Lovers of beer and national parks, we have good news 🍺
Uinta Brewing in Salt Lake City, UT, has announced that they're releasing a new line of beer cans that will be dedicated to celebrating and supporting our National Park System. The beer is a refreshing Golden Ale with a light body and subtle sweetness. The crisp ale has a 5% alcohol level and an IBU (bitterness) of 21/100. Carapils and Crystal Malts and Willamette and Sterling hops will be used to make the delicious brew.
The type of beer in the cans will stay the same, while the design of the can is what will change. There will be eight different cans to enjoy and collect. The first can will be a Yosemite themed design with Half Dome in the background. There will also be cans dedicated to Yellowstone, Arches, Smoky Mountains, Acadia, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain, Everglades, and possibly more. Uinta Brewery is working with the Anderson Design Group of Nashville, Tennessee, to design the cans.
Almost everyone that works at Uinta Brewery loves the outdoors. The headquarter's location is close to several National Parks, so you can easily see how the idea was born. The CEO of Uinta Brewing, Steve Mills, has spoken out about the series. He states "We’re fortunate to have five National Parks within five hours of the brewery, and hope that our Golden Ale encourages consumers to get out and explore those that surround them.”
