Playful aspen leaves dance in a gentle summer breeze, as if moved by the sweet musical stylings of homegrown musicians. The Sixth Annual Hops on the Hill has returned for another seven week series of local craft beer tasting, savory food pairings, and free concerts.
This local event is held every Tuesday at Stein Eriksen Lodge. Inspired by the Olympic legend and his Norwegian heritage, the traditional ski lodge was the very first property erected in Deer Valley, and has since remained an iconic treasure.
Visitors flock to Deer Valley each year for destination weddings and legendary mountain vacations, but Hops on the Hill feels more like a tribute to locals. The tranquil ambiance is elegant yet laid back. Kids play in the grass, while old friends come together to spend carefree summer nights on the deck.
Stein Collection Corporate Chef and Vice President of Food and Beverage Operations, Zane Holmquist, carefully crafts fine small bites to pair with each brewery’s unique ales, lagers, stouts, and malts. You can find him on the deck chatting with attendees and personally serving his taste creations. Many are surprised to find a chef of his stature on the deck serving, but Hops on the Hill is special. Chef Zane describes it as an opportunity to experience “the more casual side of Stein.”
Each week, the event features two local breweries. The passionate brewers take pride in sharing their craft. They are happy to describe the complexities of flavor found in each distinct beer. Combined with Stein Eriksen Lodge’s award-winning pairings, the evening offers a unique opportunity to indulge in a variety of taste sensations.
Guests seeking a more casual dining experience are encouraged to come relax on the lawn, enjoy the free concert, and order from the à la carte grill and bar. Chef Zane welcomes everyone to “Bring the neighbors, the friends, the kids, and have a great time!” There is truly something for everyone. Bring your friends and family to partake in this favorite summer series!
