Aw, the podcast that could have been. We traveled to Red Rock Brewing’s Tap Haus in Park City to record with the charming Kevin Davis and Kim Hardle over beers and fried green tomatoes, but alas, it wasn’t to be. Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned, and instead of biting into a thick slice of Red Rock’s carrot cake, you end up eating a bowl of ice cream with wheat germ sprinkles.
Welcome to episode 9 of the Crafty Beer Girls Podcast. We reflect on what went wrong with the last recording and toast 25 years of Red Rock Brewing with a much-needed glass of Paardebloem! Hey, we’ve got each other, right? As the night unfolds, beer from Boise’s Barbarian Brewing tells a story that conjures bizarre childhood memories. In addition, we discuss the new Sandy location of Slackwater, a new West Valley location of Pins & Ales, the state’s smallest brewery, Cerveza Zólupez in Ogden, and the first Zion Canyon Beer Festival that happened in October. Oh, and we drink stuff! We sip on a cocktail using organic craft soda from Taproot Soda, beer from SaltFire and O’dell, absinthe from Holystone Distillery, and a beer cocktail made with Porter’s Fire and entirely too much molasses. Cheers!

Yes, wheat germ sprinkles are a thing! Jenni isn’t crazy. Here’s a short article about wheat germ. Apparently, ketchup with potato chips is also a thing, so Lauren is also not crazy. Even matchstick eating is not unheard of. Oh the things you learn on the internet! It is associated with an eating disorder called Pica. Unfortunately, Mike was either crazy or mineral deficient. Sorry, Mike. We love you anyway.
New barrel-aged beers, Monolith Imperial stout (Grenache wine/rye whiskey barrels) from Proper Brewing, the bourbon barrel Kilted Harley Scottish ale from Salt Flats, and the Mobius Trip on Raspberries from SaltFire are available now.
