Things are not always what they seem. Red Rock Brewery’s new ‘Marvella’ is no exception.

It has an innocent golden hue; a soft and smooth mouth-feel; a smell that reminds you of the small banana candy found in a box of Runts; and it’s easy like Sunday morning.

Marvella is a Belgian Style Tripel Ale. Tripels are notorious for being deceptively potent with an alluring drinkability. Red Rock’s version is definitely true to style.

Alas, the time has come for a big and beautiful beer that has the thrust of an Imperial Stout, yet offers a whimsical combination of flavors for those who lean towards fruity-esters and mild sweetness.

Hop bitterness is barely perceived in this beer, if at all. The pale malts, Belgian candy sugar, and unique yeast strain are front and center. It’s not bottle conditioned like many traditional Tripels, but it’s notably carbonated.

This beer is suitable for reverie or revelry. Either way, it’s a sipper.

500mL bottle. 11% ABV. Cheers!

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


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


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.”
