Salt Flats Brewery is pleased to announce that it has acquired Utah-based distiller Salt Flats Spiritsin March. The acquisition comes in the wake of the business interruption that has gripped thecountry, the State of Utah and decimated the Brewery’s customer base across its restaurant andbar business. “We foresaw the looming shutdown of the overall Utah economy and in particularthe liquor and food service economy and with it the fear that has gripped society producing abump in liquor sales at the State liquor stores as well as a need for a number of critical items tofight the virus including sanitizer and antiseptic products,” said General Manager Jeremy Ford.

“The combination of the top-shelf products being produced by the distiller, increased liquor sales in State liquor stores and approval for distillers to produce ethanol-based sanitizers and antiseptics made the acquisition a perfect fit for the expansion of the Brewery’s business expansion” continued Ford. “We now have a complete portfolio of adult beverages under our new name – Salt Flats Beer & Spirits and though customers cannot purchase our Spirits products in State liquor stores, they can purchase them from our package agency store as we prepare for distribution in our neighboring States”.
