CUSTOM BREW FOR SKIERS BREWSKI MOUNTAIN LAGER FROM BOHEMIAN BREWERY

S

olitude’s custom-crafted BrewSki has hit the big time! Debuting in winter 2017 just in time for the ski season and Christmas, Solitude BrewSki was originally created as a one-off beer as part of Bohemian Brewery’s Brewer’Stache line. The idea for BrewSki started when Bohemian Brewery staff shared a few beers with Staffan Ecklund and Andrew Fletcher of Solitude Mountain Resort’s food and beverage team two years ago. The team wanted to offer a winter/ ski beer that was easy to enjoy on-mountain without the heavy undertones and body typically associated with winter releases. This Germanstyle Pilsner, Solitude BrewSki, quickly rose to such popularity that Bohemian Brewery and Solitude Mountain Resort decided to release it as a standing offering at the start of the 201718 ski season. “In addition to BrewSki being a wonderfully light and balanced après-ski quaff, it’s got the perfect name to match Utah’s official winter pastime.” Kelly Schaefer of Bohemian Brewery says. Propelled by BrewSki’s success at Solitude Mountain Resort last season—it outsold every other beer at the resort—the crisp and satisfying BrewSki is going even bigger this year. Pints of BrewSki with its mild, malty sweetness and floral tinged Bavarian hops will now be served from resort-branded tap handles on site at Solitude as well as at Brighton Resort, Snowbird, Alta Ski Area and Snowbasin Resort. In collaboration with Ski Utah, Bohemian’s BrewSki is also available for sale in 12-ounce can six-packs at most grocery and convenience retail outlets throughout Utah, featuring a unique can design for four participating resorts— Solitude, Brighton, Snowbird and Alta—plus a Ski Utah can and one highlighting Bohemian Brewery. “With our partners Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbasin all pouring the BrewSki at their resorts, it means that tourists and locals alike will be able to enjoy a locally made quality lager beer tailored to suit their winter sporting needs,” Schaefer concludes. ❖ —Heather L.
