This American-style pils is brewed with natural lime, making for a very refreshing summertime brew. On the pour, we’re presented with a golden straw color topped by a fluffy cap of foam that laces nicely as it recedes. The lime jumps out right away in the aroma, joined by a dash of fruity and lightly grassy hops. That special addition is immediately apparent on the palate as well, offering a big citric fruity character along with some acidity that reminds us a bit of a German gose – another super refreshing style that is often infused with fruit essence and tartness. That acidity balances and dries the beer out, taking on much of the role that hops usually do in a pilsner. In this case, the mild hops and the lime combine to nicely balance the pale malt core, which offers light breadiness and a touch of sweetness from the judicious use of a little corn in the grain bill. The end result is a remarkably crisp and quenching lager perfect for the season and backyard cooking. The lime addition should balance caramelized meats and veggies very well, so fire up the grill and throw on some brats, dogs, burgers, chicken, root vegetables, corn on the cob, onions & peppers, etc. Carnitas tacos with a spritz of lime sounds great, too. Cheers!

When founder Will Hamill established Uinta (“you-in-tah”) in 1993, he succeeded in merging his love of brewing and his passion for the outdoors. Originally from Maine, Will enjoyed a lifestyle very much like many other Utahans when he arrived in the state, including kayaking, skiing, and biking. But, something was missing – the great craft beer that he had enjoyed in his native state. To satisfy his own cravings, Will took to home brewing and quickly became consumed. After years of perfecting recipes, he was producing beers that not only satisfied him, but also impressed his friends. At that point he enrolled at UC Davis to study brewing and develop his knowledge of the industry.

When Will began Uinta, it was at a very modest facility – a small, converted auto mechanic’s garage. From these humble beginnings, Uinta began brewing and distributing beer to local pubs and restaurants, and three years later demand had escalated enough to install a bottling line. By 2001, the brewery had outgrown its original location, so a 26,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility was built with energy efficiency as a prime goal. Not only was the new brewery outfitted with the best in brewing technology, it was built to be completely wind- and solar-powered. Yep, the brewery is 100% powered by Mother Nature herself, becoming the first business in Utah to achieve that milestone. But, their commitment to the environment doesn’t end there; they established a recycling location for brown glass, donate their used grain to local ranchers to use as feed, purchase recycled paper, and use natural lighting in the brewery as well as energy-efficient electric lighting. Great job guys, we’ll raise a glass to that! To learn more about Uinta Brewing Company, visit www.uintabrewing.com.
