The Inspiration:

The "Drunkards Wash" blend draws its name and inspiration from the rugged terrain and exhilarating experiences found at Drunkards Wash, a well-known desert wash in Price, Utah. This area is not only famous for its breathtaking landscape but also for being a key location in the world of off-road desert racing. Specifically, it hosts part of the USRA Racing series and events organized by Finish Line Productions, with the start and finish lines set at the Carbon County Fairgrounds in Price. These races typically occur in mid-April, drawing enthusiasts from all over to test their mettle against the challenging course.

The History:

Price, Utah, the gateway to Drunkards Wash, has a rich history dating back to the late 1800s. Named after LDS Bishop William Price who explored the region in 1869, the town evolved from a small farming community into a bustling hub due to the advent of the railroad in 1883 and the discovery of coal. This transformation brought a diverse population of immigrants, contributing to the cultural richness of the area​ (Chem Eng @ U of Utah)​​ (History to Go)​.
