“Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Franklin
We have always loved that quote and if it’s the truth, we believe the Utah Beer Festival is proof the recent spike in craft beer popularity hasn’t gone unnoticed in the Beehive state. Beer enthusiasts will invade beautiful downtown Salt Lake City in the middle of August looking to quench their thirst while trying the best beer the state has to offer. Each year the festival has grown and the organizers have done a great job staying two steps ahead of the anticipated growth, including the move to a more suitable location based on the rising number of attendees. Utah has also seen an increase in distribution over the past couple of years, vastly enhancing the craft beer choices based on the number of breweries participating in the festival. If you love beer (and we think you do), you will want to plan to spend a nice summer evening experiencing hundreds of diverse beers.
