It's National Drink Beer Day! You know what to do. Be like Damon.

Our Operations Director (always capitalized, because he’s also the telephone repairman) at Salt Lake magazine is a beer lover. To the extent that if you ask him a random question, like, “Hey Damon, when are we running our Women in Business section?” he is likely to answer, “Beer.” “What time is the meeting?” “Beer.”


You get the picture. Today is his day. So of course we asked him what his favorite beers are, in case you want to follow his recommendation on this Day of Damon, National Drink Beer Day. Not to be confused with National Beer Day (April 7) or International Beer Day (April 5.)

I like the specificity of the verb in today’s celebration. So does Damon.

Here are Damon’s local favorites, in no particular order. I asked Damon to comment on each one, but he just said, “Beer.”

1. Bohemian – Viennese
2. Bohemian – Cherny Bock
3. Red Rock – Secale
4. Roosters – Honey Wheat
5. Squatters – Chasing Tail
6. Epic – Cross Fever

Cheers to beer.
