I stopped in at the Red Rock Brewing Company in Salt Lake City, Utah for a beer.  I tried the Nut Brown Ale which is noted on the beer list as the most awarded of their beers.  It also explains that this beer is a departure from English brown ales in that it uses American hops and is hoppier.  Well, for my tastebuds I prefer the English nut brown ale taste with the rich malt flavor and less hoppiness.  Your mileage may vary.

I stopped in at The Annex by Epic Brewing in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout was outstanding.  A great sipping beer.  Huge flavor – coffee, chocolate, rich, malty.  It is very strong – a short pour was plenty.  Also the bratwurst with local sauerkraut and the house made pickles was delicious.  I would eagerly recommend Epic Brewing and The Annex.
