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!






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.”

Glassware Matters


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.

Buyer Beware

Money down the drain

Beer gets old, it’s not always made properly, it’s certainly not all delicious, and it can definitely leave a dent in your wallet if you’re not careful.

If you’re not willing to sacrifice your good taste in beer, you had better be pretty picky when handing over your hard earned dollars for it.

Red Rock Rêve 2016

Reve 2016 smallThe seasonal release of Red Rock Rêve will begin on Saturday, February 13th, 2016.

Rêve is a Belgian style trippel, barrel-aged in medium toast French oak barrels for 12-months. It’s brewed with a combination of Pilsner and Pale malts. It’s then inoculated with Brettanomyces and bottle conditioned.

The appearance is a bubbly golden color with a bright white head.  It smells of Brett, fruity yeast and a bit of oak.

The flavor is tart up front, and has a slightly-sweet, yet dry finish.  10.3% alcohol by volume.

You can buy bottles of Rêve to-go from the Red Rock Beer Store located at 443 N 400 W, beginning at 11:00am, while supplies last (which won’t be long).

You can enjoy a bottle of this delicious beer with dinner at all three Red Rock brewpubs located downtown, Fashion Place, and Park City Junction.
