This morning we get our firts look at several new beers heading to bottles (for the first time) from Bonneville Brewery in Toole, UT: Free Roller Session IPA (4%-AbV, 48 IBU), Redline Itish-style red ale (4%-AbV, 22 IBU), Pilot Peak pilsner (4%-AbV, 26 IBU) & Antelope amber ale (4%-AbV, 21 IBU). These are all 12oz bottles packaged for Utah distribution.

Free Roller: Uninhibited additions of Pacific Northwest hops cause this beer to explode with citrusy and piney aromas and a satisfying bitterness that balances out the sweet caramel and malty backbone. A hophead's delight!
The traditional beer of St. Patrick's Day. This red ale had bready malt character with a hint of roast for a dry, refreshing finish. A touch of British-style hops rounds out the flavor profile of this popular ale.

When early explorers crossed the Great Basin in search of water, they used Pilot Peak as their guide. If you set your sights on this Pilot Peak, your thirst will be quenched with an authentic German pilsner. Two types of German pilsner malt and Hallertau Tradition hops come together to bring forth our interpretation of the style that redefined beer. Light but not lifeless, delicate in flavor but bold in refreshment.
Created with balance in mind, this American-style amber plays caramel and biscuit malt flavor off earthy hops. A real crowd-pleaser, it has something for everyone.
