The Dream Begins


Humble beginnings in our Park City location.  Our “commercial space” was really more like a glorified garage.   This video goes back to 2009.  We would not open for another year, but the invitation to festivals were already beginning.  In our little space, we began recipe development, working our day jobs and brewing evening and week ends.   What you see is a 15 gallon Sabco system.  Trent read that Sam Caglione from Dog Fish Head began his brewing career on a Sabco.  He figured,  if it was good enough for Sam, it would be good enough for us.

Trent worked his magic on the little brew system, but as you can see, it doesn’t hold a lot of liquid.   We got a last minute invite to a festival and didn’t know how we were going to make enough beer.  Well, we got our thinking caps on and decided we could make it happen if we had 2 systems.   A few phone calls later, we found a generous soul who let us borrow his Sabco.

Brewery Tasting Room

tasking rom buildout 1The Shades of Pale brewery Salt Lake City tasting room is almost ready to open.    As you can see one of the best things about the new brewery bar is the view.  Yes, you’ll be able to witness first hand the art of making beer as our brewers works their magic.

Though the signs are not up yet, we are not officially open, we are  brewing and licensed to sell.  We have an informal bottle shop out of our cold room and love visitors, so stop by and see us.

Entrance to the building is at 154 West Utopia just south of 2100 S.  We are down the street from Home Depot, Costco, Best Buy and TRAX.   Head for the loading dock.
