Utah’s One Thing: Jeff of Mountain West Cider

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Previously we were joined by Jen of Mountain West Cider in episode 18 but this time, for episode 63, we were able to ask Jeff the other owner of Mountain West Cider what his one thing someone visiting Utah should do! Jeff said to check out the craft brewing scene in Utah. He also said go to church. As in go to the Tabernacle at Temple Square and check out the flowers in the spring or the lights in the winter. Jeff said that Salt Lake City is to the Mormon church like Rome is to the Vatican. We think he has a point. We also love putting brewing and the LDS church SLC temple grounds in the same entry!

Only in your State has a great list but there are a couple missing like Proper Brewing and RoHa Brewing to name a couple!

We did a list on episode 58 about the Brewery on the ByWay from the Salt Lake Tribune that has many of Salt Lake City’s brewers locations in downtown Salt Lake.

Episode 65 When Cosplay goes Viral: The Real Finn

Standard

The force was strong with episode 65! Victor Sine, AKA The Real Finn, joined us to talk about moving to Utah, a bit of white privilege, and of course what happens when you go viral because your cosplay is SO ON POINT!

A year-and-a-half ago Victor, Julianne, and her little one dressed up as Finn, Rey, and BB-8 (aka Baby8). Before they even got to the convention people were taking pictures and dropping their jaws. There was not one moment at Salt Lake Comic Con that year that they weren’t busy taking pictures. Then they broke the internet and went internationally viral. Covered by everyone from Entertainment Weekly and StarWars.com to Buzzfeed. Victor has continued to do cosplay including: The Black Panther, Green Lantern, and his upcoming Static Shock appearance as well as a few others in the works. He had some great up’s and downs of doing cosplay for us. When Victor is not being nerdy and a viral superstar, he is being a real life superhero by doing research for Alzheimer’s.

Episode 63 Hard Cider in Utah

Standard

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!

EVENTS:

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.
