Uinta Brewing (Salt Lake City, UT) will release a new can that is not only perfect for drinking in the heat, but a great testament to their hometown. 801 Pilsner celebrates all of Utah, but specifically the 801 area code.
Uinta 801 Pilsner is called a “community builder” by the brewery, as they will be donating proceeds from the beer to various non-profit organizations. Partnered organizations will appear on the beer label. Up first, is the Utah Avalanche Center (UAC), helping back country riders stay on top of the snow conditions in the state.
“We’re excited to take our support one step further and to spawn greater awareness for UAC and the importance of avalanche education and safety here in Utah. Community involvement is a large component of Uinta’s DNA and we are eager to spread neighborhood engagement and camaraderie through the 801 brand.”
Unita 801 Pilsner will be released in Utah only in 12oz cans.
