Hubby and I went to Park City, Utah again last month. We went to Red Butte Botanic Gardens, which is a nice place to see the fall colors. It seemed dryer than the last time we were in Utah, but it was still pretty.
One of the main reasons Hubby and I went to Utah in October was to see the leaves change color. So here are some pictures of trees, leaves, and assorted nature. I’m posting these in gallery mode so if you click on them you can see a larger image.
I wasn’t quite sure how to post all my Utah pictures considering there are over 130 of them, so I’m going to do some by topic. Today’s topic – BOOZE! Utah is considered by many to be a ‘dry’ state, but if you’re in Salt Lake City or Park City there is plenty of beer and other alcohol. We went to three beer breweries, and one whisky distillery. It was fun. Here are some photos. We went to Squatters, Red Rock, Wasatch, and High West. And I’d just like to say that everywhere we ate had excellent food.
First up is Squatters. We ate here in Salt Lake City after we first arrived. It was my second favorite when it came to beer.
Next was Red Rock in Park City the first night we were there. It was my least favorite, but it’s because their main focus is food, and not beer. And the candelabra thing the beer came in was HEAVY.
The last brewery was Wasatch in Park City, and it was our favorite beer. This one didn’t have a sampler of 6 3-oz tastes like the other brewhouses, but they had 5-oz samples for $1.75!! That is nuts! I had the Apricot Hefewiezen and the seasonal Pumpkin Spice which was fantastic. Here are photos of the beer stills.
After having lots of beer at lunch we then went to the High West Whiskey Distillery for dessert. We shared this butterscotch pudding thing which was fabulous and I ate it before I took a picture. Oh well. We had samples of their five whiskeys and two vodkas. I recommend the Rendezvous whiskey and the straight vodka, not the peach vodka, which was too peachy for me.
It was a very libatious weekend.
