The Mormons are Coming!

The saints are marching in and setting up camp in Albuquerque liquor stores. Spotted at Kelly liquors on Wyoming was an entire shelf dedicated to Utah beers: Wasatch Devastator Double Bock, Polygamy Porter, and Summerbrau Lager, along with Squatters IPA and Hop Rising DIPA. I have had the 9% ABV Hop Rising a few times and it is a good DIPA, not quite world-class but pleasant and not too pricy at $9.99 a sixer. When I think of the Polygamy Porter, I don't think of the actual beer but rather the t-shirt, which is very popular for men who like to wear sandals and go grocery shopping. I can't explain this phenomenon, but men wearing this shirt in grocery stores outranks men wearing the shirt to beer fests by at least a 4 to 1 ratio. And I usually spot them at our local (John) Smiths stores. Hmmm. Don't wait for latter days; get these Utah beers at their freshest.
