The process of brewing beer can be complex and time consuming, but rewarding. Shades of Pale Brewery in Prospector, has mastered the recipes for six different kinds of beer since opening in October.
The brewery had a trial-and-error period during which they took time to perfect each batch, explained Shades of Pale Owner Trent Fargher. Some beer took longer to perfect than others, he admits. Head Brewer Matt Davis worked on perfecting the Belgian White for over four months, while the wheat beer only took three batches.
Shades of Pale beer can be found at Bistro 412 on Main Street Park City and Good Karma in Prospector. Fargher is currently brewing several different kinds of local beer including: Jackwagon, an American wheat, a porter called 4play, Publican Pale Ale, Parley’s Pale White Ale, Slippery Slope (an espresso stout) and a German Kolsch called Perfect Stranger.
The brewery will start bottling their own beer on site in about two months, explained Fargher. The brewmeisters are currently working on creating their own labels that they hope will inspire adventure in Park City.
For example, one label might give a brief overview of Round Lake and a website to go for a map. This particular ‘adventure’ might be worth two beers on a scale to five beers, explained Fargher. The idea behind the point system is to rate the adventure based on the number of beers you’ll want when you’ve completed it.
Hopefully we will be sampling some of these soon and will be sure to post a review!
