BEWILDER BREWING CO.

Fresh Sesh IPA
  • .

While a true American IPA by definition starts at 5.5%, we here in Utah have embraced the idea of “session” IPAs for their drinkability and availability on tap per Utah law requiring draft beer be under 5% ABV. Mosaic, Citra, and Galaxy hops provide the dominant hop profile of the beer with a pleasantly grapefruit citrus character and just the right amount of bitterness to make this a truly sessionable beer.

Bewilder ESB (Voted Utah's Best Ale)
  • Gluten Reduced

The FIRST Bewilder beer to come out of the tanks! Despite having "bitter" in the name, this is a copper colored English beer with a well balanced earthy hop character and moderate malt sweetness. Brewed with traditional floor malted English grains and a not so secret crystal malt. *This beer is Gluten Reduced! -NABA 2022 Bronze Medal Winner!

Vitruvian Pils
  • .

With inspiration from Leonardo Da Vinci, this collaboration beer for The Leonardo Museum of Creativity and Innovation uses Italian and French ingredients (Da Vinci was born in Italy, but died in France) for a perfect balance in this new(er) style pilsner. Italian pilsners capture the balance and drinkability of classic German pils, but they insert a beautiful, yet restrained, fresh, Noble-hops character through generous dry hopping. Da Vinci's diagram of the study of the proportions of the human body, as described by Roman architect Vitruvius, shows that arm span was equal to height in a perfectly proportioned body. We believe this might be a perfectly proportioned Italian Pilsner, so the name seemed fitting.

Kölsch (voted Top 3 Best Local Beer)
  • Gluten Reduced

We start with malt grown specifically for this style of beer from Cologne Germany, and add a little bit of vienna for that wonderful Kolsch flavor that is unique to this style of beer. This has a mildly sweet grain aroma with some floral hop character. The body is light and refreshing with a pilsner like grain quality with mild honey notes. *This beer is Gluten Reduced! -Voted Top 3 Best Local Beer in City Weekly's "Best Of Utah" edition. - NABA 2022 Bronze Medal Winner!

Blueberry Pomegranate Sour
  • .

Based loosely on a German Berliner Weisse this starts as a very
pale, refreshing, low-alcohol German wheat beer with a clean
lactic sourness. Our take bumps up the alcohol, uses some mildly
fruity hops, and a lot of blueberry pomegranate puree.

Haze Hugs Hazy Pale
  • .

Jucy, Hazy, NEIPA, however you like to define the family of beers, this one delivers ALL the soft lovable hugs to your palate. We hit the fermentation multiple times for maximum flavor of some cool hops on this latest version of a session hazy beer for our taps. Made with low color maris this beer has just the right color and malt balance. Citra and Eldorado do the heavy lifting, but we added a fun new hop called Bru-1 characterized by juicy pineapple and green fruit. So open your arms (mouth), and get ready for a hug of flavor.

Whistlegowoo Dry Hopped Saison
  • .

This time we have a Dry Hopped Saison with Nelson Sauvin and Motueka Hops. It's like a IPA with Belgian character! This beer has a moderate fruity hop aroma with some white wine notes, med-low bubble gum and white pepper esters/phenols. It's dry, and finishes with some fruity hop character that makes you keep coming back.

Brian's Fur Coat-Winter Warmer
  • Small Batch - Limited Supply
Groundskeeper - Scottish Ale
  • .

Much like an Irish Red, this beer is balanced and uses a moderate amount of kilned malts and roasted barley in the recipe, which gives the beer the color for which it is named. Featuring an approachable hop bitterness which rests on the palate, it also features a mild caramel malt sweetness. We sourced our pale malt grown in Scotland farms for a unique and genuine flavor backbone, as well as Scottish yeast to keep this as authentically a Scottish beer as possible.

Steeplejack - English IPA
  • Bewilder/Proper

In collaboration with Proper Brewing for the Utah Brewer's Guild - Steeplejack English IPA: A tribute to skilled workers, this English IPA showcases a balanced blend of hop flavors with earthy, floral, citrus, and spice notes.

Orange Honey Wheat
  • .

This wheat beer uses local Utah honey and sweet orange peel to create a medium-sweet beer balanced with newer German hops. The Orange Honey Wheat has a light wheat flavor and the honey helps this beer finish dryer than other wheat beers. The Mandarina Bavaria hops are light and refreshing and reflect the mild orange citrus flavor of the peel. Easy drinking and refreshing beer, it’s great for those long hot days of summer.

Druish Princess - Schwarzbier
  • .

The name is a nod to a classic movie, but Schwarzbier, literally means “black beer” in German, and sometimes called a “black Pils”. Our version of this beer is somewhat malty with a nice dry finish. This is a dark beer that drinks like it’s lighter cousins, with a hint of roasted character.

Low Hanging Phruit
  • .

We decided to push some fruity thiols using Phantasm and Lunar Crush yeast in a New Zealand Pilsner. We have learned how to use this Phantasm/yeast combo correctly through some trial and error, so we thought why not use it on a light and refreshing pils base. This is a hop forward lager with some great notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and pineapple. It sounds complicated, but it's a simple and easy drinking beer that you have to try!

Coffee Kolsch
  • Made with Kings Peak Coffee

We start with a light German ale base beer with mellow hops and a good malt backbone, then added lightly roasted special blend whole coffee bean from Kings Peak Coffee Roasters in Salt Lake City, for a mild coffee character while still the beer light in color and drinkability.

American Wheat

High Point Taproom Beer

Hopless Romantic
  • .

Bewilder's first bottled beer! This is a Belgian farmhouse style ale brewed with hibiscus and rose hips, just for Valentines Day! We aged this Saison in Beehive Distilling gin barrels for a nice dry finish. This is an amazing mix of mild phenolics from the Belgian yeast, botanicals, with a hint of oak and gin. You will fall in love with beer!

Barrel Aged Double ESB
  • Anniversary Ale

As a tribute to the first beer we ever made at Bewilder, our Anniversary Ale is a very big brother to our ESB. This barrel aged double ESB is everything you want out of a barrel aged beer. Despite having "bitter" in the name, this is a copper colored English beer that even after aging in whiskey barrels doesn’t feel overly sweet or out of balance. Brewed with traditional floor malted English grains and blended for just the right character, this is an awesome beer that screams cellaring and future vertical flights.

SELECT - Barrel Aged Double ESB
  • Anniversary Ale

As a tribute to the first beer we ever made at Bewilder, our Select Anniversary Ale is a very big brother to our ESB. Similar to our standard barrel aged Double ESB we brewed this with traditional floor malted English grains, hops, and yeast, but our brewers selected their favorite single barrel that stood out with unique and unequalled complexity. This year’s Select was pulled from a Blanton's Whiskey Barrel. This is a very limited beer release.

2023 Barrel Aged Double ESB
  • Small Batch - Limited Supply

VINTAGE 2023 As a tribute to the first beer we ever made at Bewilder, our Anniversary Ale is a very big brother to our ESB. This barrel aged double ESB is everything you want out of a barrel aged beer. Despite having "bitter" in the name, this is a copper colored English beer that even after aging in whiskey barrels doesn’t feel overly sweet or out of balance. Brewed with traditional floor malted English grains and blended for just the right character, this is an awesome beer that screams cellaring and future vertical flights.

I Love Jucy
  • .

Very similar to the Dos Hazy Boy, we changed out the yeast and cleared this up for a unique take on our award winning recipe. The late hopping provides the same intense hop experience through flavor and aroma instead of, but not without, mild bitterness. We use Citra, Sultana Cryo, and HBC 586 hops, which produces a huge tropical fruit aroma and flavor dominated by pineapple with mild citrus, but there is no fruit juice in this beer.

Imperial Mole Porter
  • .

The Barrel Aged Mole Porter is back!!! This beer is a big fan favorite, dare we say it has a following, and this year's batch is incredible! This is an imperial strength English style porter, with spices reminiscent of Mexican Mole sauce. Mole (or Americanized “Molé”) comes from an old Nahuati word for “mix”, or “sauce”. In addition to the basic ingredients, Chipotle peppers, cinnamon, and cacao, we also added Mexican vanilla, Mulato and Pasilla Negro peppers. For added depth, we also aged the porter in Tequila and Mezcal barrels for 8 months. All of this comes together for a rich and complex beer that keeps you coming back for more. This is a hearty beer that is mildly warming and is great for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, and all through the holidays! Do not miss out!

Imperial Mole Porter 2022
  • .

Last year's Mole! Compare with the unique batch from this year! This beer is a big fan favorite, dare we say it has a following, and this year's batch is incredible!

El Fruti Boi
  • .

Introduced for Pride week two years ago, we decided to add both lactose and a tropical fruit blend of pineapple and guava for El Fruti Boi, our milkshake Pale Ale. Just in time for Pride Month, a portion of sales will be going to benefit the Utah Pride Center. This is a silky smooth fruity beer that drinks great, but still reminds you there is beer in there, with a big hop character.

Dos Hazy Boi
  • .

At 8%, this is pretty big beer for Bewilder, but at its core, this
style is for beer lovers fascinated by hops. The late hopping,
indicative of the NEIPA style, provides the same intense hop
experience through flavor and aroma instead of, but not without,
mild bitterness. We use, Citra, Sabro, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops,
which produces a huge tropical fruit aroma and flavor dominated
by pineapple with mild citrus, but there is no fruit juice in this
beer. -NABA 2022 Gold Medal Winner!

Gecko Fingers
  • .

Inspired by the constant evolution of the West Coast IPA style, Gecko Fingers uses a surprisingly simple grain bill and clean fermenting yeast that provides just enough backbone to support the hops, without getting in the way. All the modern tricks were used to layer huge amounts of hop character all over this beer, with heavy handed additions of El Dorado and CTZ throughout the process.

CAN TO GO - Sauced! Cran Sour with Orange Peel & Cinnamon
  • Bewilder Brewing

We used a similar base with this recipe as we do for our other sour beers for a refreshing, medium-alcohol beer with a clean lactic sourness. We then dry hopped it with Idaho Gem hops, added copious amounts of cranberry puree, a lot of fresh orange peel, and some cinnamon. This is a one of a kind flavor medley that came just in time for the holiday season. You have to try it.

CAN TO GO - Chick Flip West Coast Pilsner
  • Pink Boots

While the Pink Boots Collaboration beers can go many directions, we chose to go big with a West Coast style Pilsner, meaning waaaay more hops than you would typically find in a regular American pilsner. This is a very crushable beer that is perfect for summer. Brewed with the help of members of the Pink Boots society which happen to also be members of the Bewilder team, we couldn’t be happier with how this turned out. The label art was also done by a local artist Sadie Burzan!

Mole Porter - Can
  • .

With the success of the Imperial Mole Porter, we decided to brew a draft strength version of this English style porter, with spices reminiscent of Mexican Mole sauce. Mole (or Americanized “Molé”) comes from an old Nahuati word for “mix”, or “sauce”, because there can be a lot of ingredients in mole dishes. The basic, Chipotle peppers, cinnamon, and cacao, pairs well with the coffee and dark chocolate character of an English porter, so we threw them together for a rich and complex beer that stays surprisingly drinkable. This is a one of a kind beer that is great for Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, and all through the holidays.
