$3.99 a pint • This unfiltered wheat beer is Squatters Craft Beers' show of solidarity as it features cardamom, sweet orange peel and torrified ("popped") wheat ingredients indigenous to some of the countries singled out in President Donald Trump's now-blocked travel ban. All proceeds from beer sales will benefit the Utah Chapter of the International Rescue Committee. Rich Vosepka, a server at Wasatch Brew Pub in Sugar House, hatched the idea for the benefit beer, saying it focuses "on the two things that we do best brewing beer and creating an environment where all feel welcome and safe." The beer name comes from the famous sonnet mounted on the Statue of Liberty. Tempest-Tost is available on draft at all Squatters and Wasatch brew pubs, as well as the West Side Tavern.
