Hops on the Hill

Over the course of eight Tuesdays, brew lovers and foodies gather on the gorgeous deck at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley. Each Tuesday features a different Utah breweries paired small bites by Stein’s renowned Chef Zane Holmquist. The beer is served in a mini Stein Eriksen Lodge mug that you are welcome to take home. Many locals boast collections of them in their home bars! There is also a different band each week that plays on the adjacent lawn. It’s a fun way to mingle with both locals and visitors while tasting the offerings, enjoying the live music and the view of Deer Valley’s grassy ski slopes. There are two more Hops on the Hill events this summer. If you haven’t been yet, be sure to make a reservation as these gatherings sell out. And don’t worry about the weather. If it rains, the event is relocated inside the beautiful hotel.
