New Breweries on the Horizon: Prodigy Brewing and Flaming Gorge Brewing Co.
Beer & Spirits
Ahoy there, sailor! New breweries are on the horizon, and we’ve got the scoop on what’s to come with these additions to the Utah brewery community. From the shining shores of Flaming Gorge to the mighty hills of Cache Valley, these new breweries are sure to inspire future nights of boozy revelry. So batten down the hatches while we await exciting new seasonal saisons from Flaming Gorge Brewing, tantalizing brewpub delights from Logan’s Prodigy Brewing and much more from these two soon-to-be open breweries!
Flaming Gorge Brewing Company
SLUG: What is the importance of where you decided to build your brewery?
Flaming Gorge Brewing Company: For those that aren’t super familiar with Flaming Gorge, it is this big, beautiful lake that, in my opinion, is more dope than Lake Powell. There is boating along with record-setting lake trout and world-class fly-fishing on the Green River. There are miles of pristine wilderness for camping, hiking and rafting, plus there is massive potential for it to become a mountain biking mecca. It is a hidden gem with untapped potential … and we’re here to tap that.
SLUG: What is the brewery most excited about in terms of beer selection?
Flaming Gorge Brewing Company: We will have three staple [beers] with a seasonal rotation: a Linwood lager named after the town that is now submerged under the Flaming Gorge; a Hideout Hazy IPA—Hideout was a cafe frequented by Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid; and the Sheep Creek Sour … [named after] a beautiful tributary of Flaming Gorge.
SLUG: What does the timeline look like in terms of Flaming Gorge Brewing Company’s grand opening?
Flaming Gorge Brewing Company: We originally wanted to be open by Memorial weekend, but we have had a variety of construction and supply setbacks. In general, we are just really hoping to open before the summer  ends. There will definitely be an event and probably one of the biggest the town has ever seen!
SLUG: What can you tell us about your location and the significance of your brewery in Logan, Utah?
Prodigy Brewing: We are so excited to be a part of the revitalization of historic downtown Center Street in Logan. As the first brewery in Cache Valley, it seems fitting that we will be right in the heart of the city. Our goal is to be THE brewery for our community, and we couldn’t have imagined a better location.
SLUG: As a brewpub, you’ll also be offering food. What will your food and beer menu look like?
Prodigy Brewing: We are striving for an upscale twist on classic brewpub fare with both our food and beer. We will offer small and big bites on our food menu to satisfy everyone’s tastes with favorites like beer cheese dip and a burger with all the fixings. One aspect of our food menu we’re really excited to bring to Logan is an “after 9 p.m.” menu to satisfy those late night cravings. Our beer menu will showcase our founders’ varied style preferences, from authentic Czech- and German-style lagers to full-bodied Belgium high-points. Of course, we’ll have a robust, hop-forward IPA to round out the mix.
SLUG: Prodigy Brewing has been anticipated to open during the summer of 2021. What is the official opening date?
Prodigy Brewing: We would love to have an official opening date to share! There are still so many moving parts to get us ready to open, but we’re targeting early August.
