It's Friday!

Outer Darkness

On a recent trip to Rochester, NY and Martha's Vineyard, MA I tried more than a few locals and the best beers of the trip were on Concourse C Terminal 2 at Salt Lake International Airport. Squatter's has been converting Mormons since 1989 and they are keeping it local and organic.

Outer Darkness
Welcome to the biggest beer Squatters has ever made! A Russian Imperial Stout is one of the most intensely flavored beers a brewer can create. The combination of rich roasted barley, oak, molasses and licorice root combine to create an utterly unique and complex imperial stout experience.
We had to mash in twice to get our starting gravity of 27 plato (1.108 specific gravity). We boiled 3.5 hrs to enhance caramelization and used molasses and licorice root at the end of boil. Outer Darkness is aged with oak, has 65 ibu's and bottle conditioned. We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we did making it. Please share with another and drink wisely. 10.5%
Great IPA as well and what a view of the mountains.
Layovers in Salt Lake for everyone!!
