Forbidden Peach Belgian Style Ale

Forbidden Peach Belgian Ale

SALT LAKE CITY – Forbidden Peach is a Belgian style fruit ale brewed with 700 lbs. of fresh Brigham City peaches and aged in Chardonnay barrels with two different strains of Brettanomyces.  It’s dry-hopped with Citra and bottle conditioned.

The peach aroma and flavors are very light and fresh…like smelling the skin of a ripe peach.  The Forbidden Fruit® yeast strain adds its own complex fruity-ester profile to make this beer one-of-a-kind.

It’s very dry (not sweet); just slightly tart and pours with delicate effervescent bubbles.

We will be selling 375mL bottles at the Red Rock Beer Store at $4.50 per bottle, with a 4-bottle limit.  A larger 500 mL bottle will be sold at the Red Rock Brewpubs to enjoy while dining.

Available at all Red Rock Brewpubs (Downtown, Fashion Place, Park City Junction) and the Red Rock Beer Store beginning Saturday, August 6th, while supplies last.

Beer Ice Cream

I am definitely an ice cream screamer. I love the stuff! My husband and I received an ice cream maker as a wedding gift, and it’s awesome. I never knew I needed one until I made my first batch of fresh strawberry ice cream. To die for! There is truly nothing like homemade ice cream. When I saw a recipe for beer ice cream online, I knew I had to try it. Two of my favorite things together in perfect harmony!

Red Rock Gineva – Belgian Style Ale

GinevaSmall

If you’ve ever tried Red Rock’s OriGin beer on draft (Winner 2016 – Silver Medal NABA), you’ll have a good idea of what the new Gineva is all about. Gineva is a little bigger in alcohol (5.5% ABV) and flavor, yet true to its OriGin.

Gineva is a Belgian style ale spiced with kaffir lime leaves and juniper berries.

Juniper berries can be tart, with a resinous, piney flavor that also hints of citrus. If you’ve had a taste of Gin before, you’ll recognize the distinct taste of juniper.

Kaffir lime leaves are widely used in Tai and Vietnamese cuisine to add a fresh lime fragrance and flavors to their dishes, without all the juice.

Together, these flavors meld into a refreshing summer beer that is deeply rooted in history and pays tribute to the crossroads of “Beer Street and Gin Lane”.

Gineva will be available at all Red Rock brewpubs (Downtown, Fashion Place, Park City) and the Red Rock Beer Store beginning Friday, July 15th.

The Red Rock Beer Store is located at 443 N 400 W. Open Mon-Friday from 11-7pm and Saturday 11-5pm.

The Sensory Pro’s Sound-Off on Bad Beer Habits

LandonOlsen

Landon Olson, Manager of Red Rock Junction and Certified Cicerone®, shares his biggest “Pet Peeves” about how people experience beer.

“Frosted mugs/glasses or beer temps or my beer isn’t cold enough! I can’t stand that.  And know-it-alls that really don’t know what they are talking about at all.

One other thing…the stubborn people who insist on drinking out of the bottle. It’s like a manly thing or something. Beer should be a sensory experience, so smelling, looking, foam, lacing, etc. The complexities change as it slowly warms up too.”

The Biggest Small Beer Ever

Biggest Small Beer WebsiteThe Big Idea:

Craft beer in America is the envy of every other beer-making nation in the world. Its quality,creativity, and craftsmanship are unmatched both domestically and abroad. We believe it’s a shame that big beer still owns a lion’s share of the American palate. So we’re giving craft beer the spotlight and recognition it deserves by uniting with small and independent brewers for American Craft Beer Week in a movement to #MakeSmallBeerBig. This will help provide a single voice for the craft beer industry, as well as a platform to brew The Biggest Small Beer Ever Made—craft beer’s biggest collaboration in history.

The #BiggestSmallBeerEver

100 Craft Brewers across the country agreed to brew from the same recipe to commemorate American Craft Beer Week. Red Rock Brewery is representing Utah in 2016, with a special draft version of what we’re calling a Brown Porter.  The beer was brewed with Irish ale yeast and chocolate and crystal malts. It’s dark-brown in color and is low in bitterness. This beer is very smooth and pours with a big and fluffy tan head.

Try a pint today at all Red Rock brewpubs or by a growler to-go at the Red Rock Beer Store.

Glassware Matters

Glass

Drinking straight from the bottle is on the same level as leaving the front door open when I was a kid. My Mom would scold me, “Do you think we live in a barn?” And so I ask you, “Do you really think you’ll be able to appreciate your beer without proper glassware?” I don’t want to hear your smart ass answer. Go to your room.

All seriousness aside, there’s a whole world out there that exists for the sole purpose of harboring your beer while you move it to and from your lips. I’m talking about glassware! There’s a wide assortment of shapes and sizes uniquely fashioned to give you the best experience from a particular beer or style. Beer bars worth their malt take note of this, and stock their shelves not only with beer, but with appropriate glassware to pour it into.
