Drinking beer can help animals! Salt Lake City’s annual beer fest, Utah Beer Fest offers us a chance to help our community AND drink an exorbitant amount of beer all in one foamy, cold and delicious swoop. Saturday, August 27th is the 7th annual, Utah Beer Fest, an annual event held at the State Fair grounds, featuring 200 beers to sample from plus local vendors, live entertainment and karaoke. AND it all benefits the Humane Society of Utah.
Local breweries like Epic, Red Rock, Squatters and others will represent our home town but a ton of other great breweries like, Lagunitas, Ninkasi, Anderson Valley and so many more will round out the tasting with their delicious brews.
