Beer @ the Basin
After a day of skiing Snowbasin Resort's endless untracked powder, a cold brew is just what the doctor ordered. Well, on Friday, Jan. 16, the third-annual Snowbasin Brewmaster's Dinner will feature Uinta Brewing Co. beers, live music and a complimentary pint glass for all guests. The festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. at Earl's Lodge with smoked dry-rub pork ribs, deviled eggs, a selection of cheeses, and blue-cheese flatbread paired with guests' choice of Hazel Amber Wheat Ale or Wyld Extra Pale Ale. That'll be followed by spicy lamb-sausage-stuffed potatoes and Trader Session IPA. Main courses include sweet-potato gnocchiwith rabbit ragout, with King's Peak Porter; and butter-braised cod en papillote, paired with Yard Sale Winter Lager. For dessert, there's mile-high pear pie a la mode with Anniversary Barley Wine Ale. Reservations are required, and all guests must be 21 or over. The cost is $65 per person.

Through Jan. 31, Rodizio Grill (600 S. 700 East, Trolley Square, 801-220-0500, will bacon-ize its meaty menu with a bevy of bacon-inspired dishes to supplement the endless churrasco rodizio.
