King's Peak, located in the Uinta Mountains, is the highest point in Utah at 13,528 feet. King's Peak Porter, by contrast, is the deepest colored brew made by the Uinta B.C. The medium-bodied, malty flavor and dry, roasted body bridge the gap between traditional porter flavors and German Schwarzbier (aka "black beer"). Expect chocolate maltiness throughout the aroma and flavor profile. This dark brew swept the 2000 Gold Medals at both the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup in the German style Schwarzbier category—and the 1999 Silver medal at the World Beer Cup in the German porter category. Try with Madeira steak tips or gravy-smothered pork chops (add about a cup of King's Peak to the gravy during preparation to really tie it all together).
The Uinta (pronounced "you-in-tah") Brewing Company was established in 1993 with the intent of crafting fresh, flavorful domestic ales in an environmentally friendly, sustainable manner. The brewery is named after a major east-west-running mountain range located in the Rocky Mountains, and the word "Uinta" comes from the Ute Indians, the tribe from which Utah derives its name. In 2001, having outgrown their original facility, Uinta Brewing Company moved to a 26,000 square foot state-of-the-art brewery built with energy efficiency and conservation in mind. The brewery's new nesting grounds are fully equipped with the latest in brewing technology—including systems that ensure that the facility is 100% wind powered. That's correct folks—powered entirely by nature herself! Pretty sweet, huh? Looking at it this way, by enjoying Uinta beers, you're playing a part in preventing the release of 440 tons of carbon dioxide per year—the equivalent of planting 174 acres of trees, or not driving 951,270 miles per year. The new building reflects Uinta Brewing Company's efforts to be a leader in the brewing industry while remaining committed to conservation.
