This spring Brewstillery will feature a People’s Choice Award, attendees can vote for their favorite brews. Meanwhile, SLUG “Beer of the Month” columnists Chris and Sylvia Hollands will judge the Best New Brew award. There will also be a cocktail competition—participating distillers will be creating craft cocktails to wow the crowd and take home the People’s Choice award as well as the Best Original Cocktail award, chosen by a panel of judges.

Not a beer person? Well, weird, but remember the event is called “Brewstillery” emphasis on “stillery” as in distillery, which my young Padawan, is where booze comes from. Utah has a host of new hooch makers dabbling in everything from absinthe to rum, vodka to whiskey. Craft cocktail artisans will be shaking up these local spirits into delicious summer sips.   

Advance tickets are  $20 and come with a commemorative mug. “Day of drinking” (day of event) tickets, as SLUG calls them, are $25. Tickets come with five sample tokens. Never fear, you can always purchase more tokens for $2 each. And your DD, sober buddy gets in for only $5.

So grab your tickets here and then drink up and have a great time. You can bring friends, a date or, hey, here’s an idea. bring your dear sainted Mother in anticipation of Mother’s Day on Sunday.
