Shades of Pale Brewing Co., which launched four years ago in Park City, will relocate its production facility to South Salt Lake this summer.

According to co-founders Trent Fargher and Alexandra Ortiz De Fargher, the new brewery will be located near 2100 South and West Temple and will allow Shades of Pale to expand its annual capacity — currently around 1,000 barrels. The brewery also will be able to start producing high-alcohol beer.

Shades of Pale produces four brews that are 4 percent alcohol by volume (3.2 by weight), including Jack Wagon Wheat, Publican Pale Ale, 4-Play Porter and Ready to Fly Amber Ale. The beer is sold in local grocery and convenience stores.

At the new location, the Farghers also plan to have a bottle shop — making it possible for patrons to purchase cold beer directly from the brewery — as well as a tap room, gift shop and art gallery.

Shades of Pale’s current facility will close soon, but the owners say they are looking for a new Park City location to sell their products.
