When I hear the words Salt Lake City, I normally think mountains or Karl Malone. But after sampling the fantastic lineup of craft cans from Uinta Brewing, you can add beer to that all too truncated list. Tops for me is this black lager, also known as a schwarzbier. Brewed like a bottom-fermented lager with dark roasted malts, it has the same nutty, chocolatey aromas of a porter, but with a crisp, dry finish. This is a great alternative to Guinness and other stouts without the weightiness on the palate. Try with Sweet Cheeks’ brisket burnt ends on Texas toast and thank me later.
