Episode 63 Hard Cider in Utah


The New Utah Podcast was honored to be invited to record at Mountain West Cidery this week! It seems like it was just yesterday that Jen, co-owner, joined us for episode 18! This time we got Jeff, also an owner, and Jess their marketing guru!

First things first. Did you know that in Utah cider is classified as a wine? Yea, we didn’t either and it’s kind of dumb. The only way to change these silly laws is to get in with the legislative sessions like Jeff has been doing! If you are interested in helping, just reach out to them. Mountain West Cider is heavily involved in the community, which we love, and are currently wrapping up their second year of Gay Ruby for Utah Pride celebration. After we spoke to Jen last year they introduced Desolation to their line up, proceeds from bottle sells support the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. This bottling brings them to four; 7 Mile, Ruby, Desolation, and Cottonwood. They are working on a second release of Stillwater, which is their hard cider aged in High Whiskey barrels for 6 months! Yum! They are getting ready for their second annual 4th West Oktoberfest at the end of September, doing quarterly gallery strolls with local artists, an upcoming partnership with Subaru, and a third Thursday of the month exercise and cider night! They also book events at their space if you are interested.

Partnering again with Green Urban Lunch Box, look for their bottling this fall of their second edition mash up of apples! You can find them on ALL the social media’s; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now SnapChat!



Hang on to your beards!! Our friends from Olio Skin and Beard Co. are presenting this years 4th Annual Beard and mustache competition at Snowbird to kick of Oktoberfest!

Craft Lake City will be in full swing at the Gallivan Center this weekend.

The Food Truck and Brewery Battle will be at the Gateway on the 12th from 5-10pm. Sample local fare and beer! Then vote for your favorite!

Episode 42 Pi in Utah


We have great news! Chris and Bre’s dog has been found!!! Phew.

However, we also have sad news. Jeremy’s bees didn’t make it. There was a massacre in the hive. No worries though, the Italian bees are on their way!


The New Utah was so excited to finally have Genevra Prothero on the show as a guest by herself. Campaign manager to Misty K Snow and now Davis County chair for Utah Women Unite, this woman is standing up and fighting the good fight. We don’t want to give too much away about the interview, but we can’t wait to hear what is in the works for both Genevra and Misty.

This weekend is Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 FanX! Make sure to stop and visit our friends at The Truffle Cottage and buy some mind-blowing chocolates. Then get a book from David J West. Go to one of Kerry Jackson, Travis Tate, and Aaron Burton‘s panel’s. AND get some delicious licorice from C&C Candies.  Of course in no particular order.

St Patrick’s is the weekend. Per Chris, don’t be a douche!!! Head to Mountain West Cidery for their second annual 4th West Fest with Red Rock Brewing!

You can however register to go to Thyme and Place and The Sod Show‘s (all the way from Ireland) events over the next few days. Learn all kinds of cool gardening things! (click the picture for event times and tickets/registration)


Speaking about across the pond friends. Tracey Rolfe releases her new book on Amazon on the 19th!

We also decided since it was PI Day this week to give a run down of what the best pies in Utah are. Also giving us a Utah geography lesson!! What is your favorite Utah pie? And does anyone know why a boston cream is a pie?
