hops on the hillTuesday is the new Friday at Deer Valley. Hops on the Hill craft beer tasting, free concerts, and extended chairlift hours for mountain biking are on the docket on select Tuesdays at Deer Valley—with the epicenter of the action being Stein Eriksen Lodge.

Hops on the Hill

Stein Eriksen Lodge at mid-mountain Deer Valley Resort is again hosting Hops on the Hill, its summer series every Tuesday night from July 12-August 16.

Each evening starts with a craft-beer tasting at 5 p.m., featuring award-winning Utah breweries, accompanied by Chef Zane’s tasty food pairings. Stein Eriksen Lodge invited me to join in for the first Hops on the Hill of the year, and the food was incredible. It ranged from savory meat selections to a grilled peach dessert and ending with apricots paired with Beehive cheese.

The featured breweries were Park City Brewing and Squatters, and both showcased new-to-me beers like Park City’s Imperial Pils and Squatters Hoppy Pils. New breweries will be featured each week throughout the series.

The cost is $40 the day of and includes plenty of beer.

The live music kicks off at 6 p.m. Chairs are provided so you don’t need to bring anything along. If you prefer a la carte, you can order beer and BBQ items in the concert area.

Ten percent of the proceeds from food and drink sales go toward the Youth Sports Alliance, an organization dedicated to supporting and enabling youth to participate, learn, compete and excel in sports.
