    I know it is uncool to admit this, but... Guiness is ****.

    I like a stout now and again, but not that dry-tasting stuff.

    Say what you will. But we have some awesome breweries here. I had a Wasatch First One Down just yesterday. It was the perfect after ski beer.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    The micro-breweries are popping up up everywhere. Pricey, but they make some **** nice products.

    Yes, the breweries here are quite good with one caveat. They make styles that just do not fit into a 3.2% alcohol limit. You cannot have an IPA that is 3.2; it just doesn't work that way. However, if they stick to styles that fit within that mandated framework, they do a great job with the low-point stuff.
    The liquor store beers (stuff they can't sell anywhere but liquor stores and bars/restaurants with a unique type of 'double secret probation-esque' liquor license) are truly great in a lot of cases.

    Chris,
    Have you been to Red Rock Brewing yet? Good bar-style grub and a nice list of on-tap low-point beers. They also bottle many of their high-point stuff that is really great. Also, if you are looking for a grocery store beer that is good, try out Wasatch Brewing's "Yard Sale."

    Mike & Jim,
    Go to hell.

    I'm not sure if I posted about this great beer or not. But it's currently on the top of my favorites.

    Question, I didn't think the beer they served in the breweries were 3.2, are you sure? Because when we ate a Squatters that was an awfully good ale I had with one serious burger.

    I have not been to Red Rock. But do not waste your time at the Strap Tank.

    Chris, if it was on tap it was 3.2. Not a single tap with high point beer is allowed anywhere. Squatters does a good job with food and beer!

    Shawn, can you please explain the law on the 3.2 beer? From what I'm reading, this sounds entertaining.
