'Yes! I got a bar!' Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy in 'Modern Family'.
Ty Burrell, who plays Phil Dunphy in the Golden Globe and Emmy-winning sitcom Modern Family, is now the owner of the iconic Bar-X in Utah.
Ty Burrell, best known for his role as Phil Dunphy on the award-winning TV show Modern Family, has teamed up with celebrity chef Viet Pham to open Beer Bar, Burrell’s second bar in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Beer Bar has opened next door to Bar-X, a speakeasy Burrell restored with his wife and members of his family. The historic bar opened in 1933, the year Prohibition was repealed, and serves artisanal cocktail recipes from that era.
According to Food & Wine magazine, the idea for Beer Bar was born after Burrell dined at Pham’s restaurant Forage in Salt Lake City and became enamoured with his cooking. Turns out Pham was also a fan of Burrell’s Bar-X, paving the way for their collaboration.
Punters at Beer Bar will be able to wash down artisanal sausages and bratwursts, breads, and Belgian-style fries with 150 different craft beers.
Burrell is the latest celebrity to parley his fame into the beer business. The Hanson brothers released their Mmmhops brand out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, while folk band Mumford & Sons helped an independent brewery in Sussex, England create a craft beer that was sold at a two-day music festival last summer. — AFP Relaxnews
