Summer time is an amazing season in Park City.  We are blessed with mellow weather, starry mountain nights, and humidity free sunny days for the most part during this time of year, which makes it an exceptional time to fire up the grill and BBQ!  Whether you decide to allow one of Park City’s award winning culinary teams whip up the BBQ for you, or you prefer to create your own grilled masterpiece at your luxury vacation home, there are plenty of summer events in Park City to enjoy a down-home BBQ Park City style!

A Sample of the delicious BBQ fare at Stein Eriksen’s Hops on the Hill Event

This summer, Chef Zane at Stein Eriksen Lodge has combined his efforts with multiple Utah craft beer brewers to create the new Brew & BBQ series each Tuesday evening.  Hops on the Hill is a brand new festival that takes place throughout the summer months up at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley.  Each event features beer tasting by some of Utah’s award winning breweries, and each taste is paired with some of Chef Zane’s BBQ creations.  To add even a little more spice to the evening, guests are treated to a free concert on the lawn at Stein’s.  The series kicked off on July 17th, however, there are plenty of more opportunities for you to indulge in true gourmet BBQ!  The event begins at 4:30PM, and the concert starts at 6PM.
