Hi.

Welcome to Utah Grape & Grain! We tell the stories that make Utah a surprisingly good place to explore the world of beer, wine and spirits.

Shades Brewing

Shades Brewing

OUR FIRST BEER EPISODE! In this one, we sit with Shades Brewing founder, brewer and president Trent Fargher. Trent talked to us about what it’s like to bootstrap a brewery on limited cash and grow into one of Utah’s top local beer producers. We loved Trent’s no-bullshit approach to entrepreneurship and the associated joys and hardships. We also enjoyed sipping 13% ABV Belgian ales while we recorded this pod after hours in the Shades taproom.
