Local Beer: Desert Edge

Local Beers, Grown Locally

I'm a big fan of supporting local small businesses. I try to spend my money with our local entrepreneurs rather than national chains as often as I can. If your like-minded, consider heading over to the Desert Edge Brewery this October, where Brew master Chris Haas has put together a special beer made from all local ingredients. Radius, will be made with ingredients grown within 150 miles of the Wasatch Front(yeast too???). Chris says he found the malt just over the state line in Idaho and personally picked the hops locally. I'm not sure of what style he's planning on brewing yet, but I'm sure it'll be unique. Radius will be available on draft beginning in mid-October at the brew pub in Salt Lake City. 602 E. 500 South. Cheers!

I wanted to pass on a website that I recently launched that I think your readers would enjoy. It’s called and it allows environmentally conscious people to put a pushpin over their house on a Google Map of the world. By clicking on a pushpin, you can read a bio about the person, get any green advice they are offering and see what activities they do for the environment. If you like the site, please add yourself to the map and pass it on to your readers.

People’s Market is hosting their 3rd Annual Seed Swap on Sat., Jan. 31. The event will take place at the Sorensen Unity Center, 1383 S 900 W, Salt Lake City, from 5-7 p.m. So gather up your leftover vegetable and flower seeds from last year, bring your friends, and trade with local garden enthusiasts and farmers! If you have no seeds, come anyway, and you can receive some free seeds to start your new garden.
