Peroni Brewing is opening its first brewery in the tiny town of Wounded Knee in the Utah-Arizona border town of Littleton.
Owner Jeff Peroni says it’s been a dream to open a brewery in Utah for many years.
The company started brewing in the state in 2011 and is now expanding to Colorado and Arizona.
“The people in Utah, especially in rural areas, don’t have access to a brewery, so we were really excited to be able to bring our craft beer and do some business in the area,” Peroni said.
The brewery will brew beer that is local and locally sourced.
Peroni’s beer is produced in the brewery’s outdoor fermenters, which can be found outside Wounded Kean.
The fermentation process uses a centrifuge, which produces a beer with a unique flavor.
It’s then filtered, carbonated and bottled, Peroni added.
“I think we’re bringing a new flavor to Utah, and I think the people of Utah have embraced it.
It is definitely a fun, exciting project for us to be in,” Personi said.
Wounded Knees population is roughly 200.
Peronai said it’s the largest craft brewery in Littleton, which is located in the middle of the desert.
The company will sell beer at the outdoor beer festival and at festivals and festivals-style, including festivals that sell out within hours.
It will also sell beer in the taproom.
“We’re not doing anything that we’re trying to replicate the craft beer scene in other states.
We’re trying something different,” Perona said.
“It’s a new thing that is very exciting for us, and we’re excited about it.”

Peroni Brewing Company has plans to open an indoor brewery in Salt Lake City, but the company says the outdoor brewery will be open during the festival season.
