Bristlecone Brown Ale - GABF Gold Medal Winner


Bristlecone Brown Ale Brewed by the Uinta Brewing Company - Salt Lake City, Utah   

Bristlecone Brown is malt-accented, but with a firm, nutty dryness and gentle fruitiness that is reminiscent of the classic English nut brown style. Bristlecone Brown Ale pairs well with duck, roast pork, grilled salmon and smoked sausages. Complements the flavors found in peanut sauces as in chicken satay. Explore pairing with nutty desserts and those with pears.

Story of Bristlecone Brown Ale
No bristlecones were harmed in the production of this brew. Named as a tribute to the regal Great Basin Bristlecone pine. Among these stately survivors is the 4,765 year-old Methuselah, the oldest living inhabitant of North America. Its exact location is kept secret as an older relative nicknamed "Prometheus" was unfortunately cut down in 1964.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
This brew pours a beautiful dark reddish brown color with an off white three fingered head which lasts and strong carbonation. There is also thick lacing which remains on the glass until the end.

The smell is of strong malts and nuts as well as some pine resin. The nutty part of the smell gets stronger as the brew warms up.

The taste follows the nose with strong, mostly sweet malts, nuts and strong pine taste and pine resins which linger on the tongue. Slight astringent effect, no hops to speak of. Overall a deep earthy taste.

The mouthfeel is thick, nutt and earthy. The carbonation is also present.

Overall this is a smooth beer to drink. Maybe it was the smell of the pine and the nuts but this beer seemed to have a relaxing effect on me. I will pick up a six pack of this from the local deli tomorrow.

 

  
Uinta Brewing Company
Uinta Brewing Company embarked upon its mission of brewing world class, full-flavored, craft-brewed beer in the winter of 1993. From a small, renovated mechanic's garage located in Salt Lake City, Uinta began distributing a tasty variety of beer ranging from 4.0% to over 10% alcohol by volume to local bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. Demand escalated, resulting in the installation of a bottling line in 1996. Then, in 2001, having outgrown its original building, Uinta built and relocated to a 26,000-square-foot facility, pictured above, specifically designed for brewing beer.

Uinta Brewing is named after an east-west mountain range located in northeastern Utah. Many of Uinta's beer names are inspired by Utah's diverse landscapes or have historical significance. Cutthroat Pale Ale, Uinta's flagship beer, is named after Utah's state fish. Subsequent beer names followed suit, such as King's Peak Porter, named after Utah's highest peak, Golden Spike Hefeweizen, named after the spike used to commemorate the completion of the transcontinental railroad in Utah, and Dubhe, named after the Utah Centennial star.

Since 2001 Uinta Brewing has used 100% wind-powered energy, becoming the first Utah business to reach this mark.
