Tooele’s Bonneville Brewery and Midvale’s Hoppers Grill & Brewing Co. may have flown under some of our radars in the past, but both brewpubs are about to take a big step toward wider exposure for their award-winning suds. Brewmasters Dave Watson of Bonneville and Donovan Steele of Hoppers are excited to soon get shiny, new toys to play with—and if we’re patient, we’ll get to play with them, too. As you read this, both breweries are hard at work installing brand-new bottling lines, and both hope to begin providing their bottled beers to the public by mid- to late summer.

For the first batch of big bottles, Steele has decided on their Summerset Saison. This pale ale will come in at around 7.5-percent ABV. “It’s got a nice malted backbone, but it also finishes kind of dry,” says Steele. “It’s juicy and rustic, [with] a little bit of bread flavors. We’re going to use some dry hops in it, too.” Steele plans to bottle another batch for the winter months. “It’s looking like it’s going to be our SnoAle,” he says, “Which is a really great French Bière de Garde–style amber beer. I think it sits right around 8-percent alcohol.”
