Here are few new things “brewing” in the Utah beer world.

1. The new Bonneville Brewery in Tooele (formerly Tracks) is still being remodeled, but customers don’t have to wait to taste the beer that head brewer David Watson is making. It’s available now at the All-Star bowling and fun centers in Sandy, West Jordan and Tooele. A bowling alley may be a strange place for micro-brewed beer, until you learn that All Star lanes owner Brad Shepherd, is the new owner of Bonneville Brewing.

2. Cruser Rowland, owner of Jack Mormon Coffee Co., will soon be adding beer to the list of vices he sells to Utahns. Rowland is in the process of launching the Jack Mormon Brewing Co. While the brewery is still in the early stages, its first beer will be — surprise! — a Jack Mormon Coffee Stout. Rowland has been testing batches with local brewer Chris Detrick (whose by day is a photographer for The Salt Lake Tribune). Until the project gets off the ground, fans can purchase Jack Mormon Coffee Stout t-shirts (see photo) at coffee shop, 82 E. St.

3. • A nano-brewery, called Avenues Proper and Publick House, is in the works at 376 8th Ave., in Salt Lake City. Rio Connelly, formerly of Epic Brewing, is the man behind the project, that also will include a restaurant.
