Wasatch Brewery joins Exigent Records in presenting Crucialfest 5!

June 8th, 2015

I love Wasatch. It is my go to anytime I hear a complaint about “Utah beer,” quickly producing a cold one in the complainers hand and saying, “here, have a REAL Utah beer.” The result is always the same satisfying, “Oh damn that’s good! This is made in Utah?” I have known and loved Wasatch beer for seven years now, ever since I moved to Salt Lake City. But more than the beer, I have enjoyed the Wasatch community. Wasatch is present at all of my favorite local events, often as a sponsor. By choosing to sponsor Crucialfest there can be no doubt that they support the artistic and heavy music sub-cultures of Salt Lake City, Utah, and beyond. Past their local community involvement, Wasatch is also an original pioneer for the alcohol industry in Utah. From https://www.wasatchbeers.com/ : “Where’s the beer? Where are the breweries?” Those were among the first thoughts Greg Schirf had after moving to Utah from Milwaukee in the early 80’s. Incredibly, drinking and brewing were all but forbidden. Greg took matters into his own hands and did what any self-respecting Midwesterner would do: He started a brewery. Wasatch was the very first brewery in Utah – and one of the first craft brewers in all of the U.S. – brewing award-winning brews since 1986.In 1988, Greg Schirf proposed another bill to the Utah Legislature making brewpubs legal in Utah and opened the first brewpub at the top of historic Main Street in the resort town of Park City. Wasatch continues to misbehave, turning out naughty beer after naughty beer year after year.
