Deer Valley's Beer Festival: Celebrating Utah Craft Beer

At one time, not so long ago, the state of Utah was seen as a pariah in the craft beer world. Tougher liquor laws made it a challenge to brew beer that would appeal to the general public. However, over the last decade the laws have loosened thereby enabling Utah to transform into a hotbed for craft beer culture. In fact, dozens of local breweries have now opened and operate throughout the state with more coming on the horizon.

Given the vast growth in the Utah craft beer industry and the growing demand for innovative beer experiences, resorts like Deer Valley have introduced beer festivals to cater to beer enthusiasts in the state and beyond. These events provide an excellent opportunity for locals and tourists alike to mingle with brewers while tasting the many unique concoctions from the state's top breweries amidst the resort's scenic backdrops.

Deer Valley Resort is calling all beer aficionados. This fall, take pleasure in the picturesque autumn foliage while savoring delicious brews from more than twelve Utah breweries at the Deer Valley Mountain Beer Festival's second annual edition on September 16 and 17.

The festival, which takes place mid-mountain at 8,100 feet and can be accessed through a scenic chairlift ride, is truly one-of-a-kind. Once there, Deer Valley's Mountain Beer Festival attendees can relish experiencing a diverse range of beer flavors and styles, including several full-strength options.

This festival was created to honor Utah's brewing culture and is limited to breweries from the state. Festival-goers can expect to see local brewers such as Offset Bier and Park City Brewing, as well as nationally renowned brewers from Utah like Squatters and Uinta, who sparked the state's craft brew movement a few decades ago.
