The fourth annual Brewfest will be at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort this year with a new "Brewer Dinner," where reps from local breweries will assist with food and beer pairings, and the DJs from "Radio from Hell" will be mingling. "The Brewer Dinner is a great opportunity to socialize with other beer enthusiasts, and meet the Radio from Hell crew and some of the best brewers in the state," said Bret Johnson, Snowbird's Director of Food and Beverage, in a press release. "Brewfest is a great way to spend Father's Day, with activities for the entire family." Snowbird chefs will create brew-inspired food for the Brewer Dinner, paired with beer from Ruby River, Hoppers, Uinta, Epic, Wasatch, Squatters and Bohemian breweries.
Each attendee will receive a Snowbird Aerial Tram foot passenger ticket and a Brewfest mug.
The Brewer Dinner will be served buffet-style on the Atrium patio at The Cliff Lodge on June 16 from 6-10 p.m. Dinner and beer will cost $49 per person, or enjoy both dinner and a night at The Cliff Lodge for $99 per person.
