The next Drunk on Geology is for Dead Horse Amber Ale from the Moab Brewery in Moab, Utah.
"Dead Horse Ale is named after the scenic overlook near Arches National Park. A traditional English-style mild ale with a well balanced malt to hop ratio."Around 10 million years ago the Farallon Plate, a large plate that was subducted below North America off the western coast of the the US, began to push upwards on the region. As the region was forced upward, the rivers that were formally allowed to meander naturally, started to erode downwards into the underlying bedrock. This downward erosion locked the rivers in place, creating a feature known as an entrenched meander. This entrenched meander is what created the "point" in Dead Horse Point, where an entrenched meander created the outcrop of rock jutting outwards.
