BEWILDER BREWING CO.

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!

Hoppy Kölsch
  • .

We wanted to experiment with a new malt that came out recently, so this beer has a different grain bill using almost entirely Gambrinus IPA malt. Beyond that, it's the same yeast, hops in the boil, temperatures etc etc. To differentiate it from our normal kolsch, we then dry hopped it with a German hop called Huell Melon.

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.

Cerveza de Mayo
  • .

Inspired by our friends to the south, this pale lager is pleasantly light and refreshing. Great for spicy food, hot days, hard work, or sitting on the beach somewhere. This beer is lightly hopped with a mellow malt flavor making it thirst quenching and a summer must. Just don't put it in a clear glass container, and please use any limes sparingly.

Irish Lager
  • .

This is our take on a northern Ireland style of pale lager. We use Malting company of Ireland pale malt, English hops and then cold ferment with Irish Ale yeast. The result is a golden lager has a uniquely smooth taste compared to its German counterparts with a bigger body and bolder taste than American Lagers.

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.

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!

American Wheat
  • .
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!

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.

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.

Bewilder Blue Ribbon
  • Bewilder Brewing
New School Rice Lager
  • *
Guava 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 Guava Fruit Puree.

High Point Taproom Beer

Vista - Juicy IPA
  • .

We got our grubby hands on a new USDA hop called Vista, and we just had to make a big juicy IPA with it. This offering from our Brew-Lab IPA series is a 6.5% Juicy IPA featuring Vista hops and a kiss of Sabro, and we reached all the way into our bag of tricks to create a beer that maximized the juicy hop flavors without sacrificing drinkability. It's got a big silky mouthfeel, with huge notes of candied fruit, coconut, and pineapple. hope you get a chance to try it while it's around. Limited release.

Cherry Mother Pucker
  • .

Winner of the Red Beer Homebrew Competition to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, this beer was originally brewed by Curt McCuistion. A dry hopped version of a traditional German Berliner Weisse, with bumped up alcohol and 80 gallons of Montmorency Tart Cherry juice from King Orchards in Northern Michigan. This beer tastes of cherries picked right off the tree with a mouth puckering finish that makes you want more. The can art also features a painting from Curt’s late mother Debra McCuistion.

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.

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!

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!

Big Cripsy - West Coast Pilsner
  • .

"West Coast PIlsner". West Coast Pils is a bit of a new thing. It's kind of like a German pilsner, but using American hops that would usually be associated with West Coast IPA. I'd think of it like a touch stronger version of our Vitruvian Pils, but hopped with fruitier hops. Pours a pale yellow color with a white cap of foam. Aroma has some notes of lemon and citrus fruit and a touch of pine resin and hay. Flavor follows suit. Finishes just off dry.

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!

CAN TO GO - El Fruti Boi
  • Bewilder Brewing

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.

CAN TO GO - Double ESB
  • .

As a tribute to the first beer we ever made at Bewilder, our Double ESB very big brother to the ESB on tap. Despite having "bitter" in the name, this is a copper colored English beer that even with the high ABV 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.

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.
