Uinta Brewing, founded in 1993, is named after an east-west mountain range located in northeastern Utah. Many of Uinta's beer names are inspired by Utah's diverse landscapes or have historical significance. (Cutthroat Pale Ale, Uinta's flagship beer, is named after Utah's state fish.)
Uinta beers have received awards and medals from regional, national, and international competitions, including the North American Beer Awards, World Beer Cup, and Great American Beer Festival. Since 2001 Uinta Brewing has been 100% wind-powered, becoming the first Utah company to reach this mark.
