Anglers Pale Ale has earned Uinta B.C. numerous awards, including Silver Medals at the 2001 and 2003 North American Beer Awards. And, as an export beer, it carries a higher ABV than your typical Utah brew (capped at 4% ABV if served in Utah). Expect a traditional Pacific Northwestern-styled pale ale, presenting a truly inviting nose of grapefruit and pine (hop resins.) Fresh grains peak through the hops and a faint malt sweetness, but orange characters and overall citrus notes steal the show. Predominantly citrusy, the flavor is clean and easygoing with a moderate bitterness applied in austere balance between fresh cereal grains, mild malt sweetness and grapefruit skin bitterness in the finish. A stellar example of the American Pale Ale style. Pair with a moderately spiced Indian Pork Korma.
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? Look 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.
Then, in 2004, Four+ (read: four plus) Brewing Company was launched out of the same building. Four+ B.C. makes unique, craft-brewed beers with a youthful, playful, and witty design. The “Four” refers to the primary brewing ingredients: malted grains, hops, water and yeast. The “+” describes the unique element added by way of the brewer’s art, that certain something that turns these simple ingredients into the glorious good beer that we know and love.
