After a great hike up in Cottonwood Canyon to Lake Blanche, we stopped in here for lunch and some beers. Highly recommend the hike, by the way.
German feel all the way. A nice little patio outside with some hop bines growing. Inside feels very...alpine. There are a number of tables to sit at and a smallish bar area in the back. They have a "tavern license" in one part of the bar area, which basically for us meant more samplers at a time, so we sat there. Oh...Utah.
Beers are all German styles and the food is largely homestyle German fare as well. So, a lot of potatoes and pork products. The food is quite good and large portions are offered. The beers were also quite nice as well. I liked their lagers for the most part, though the schwarzbier/dark bock was buttery. But for the most part the beers were good.
Really friendly service here and very quick as well. Iíd highly recommend this place even though itís a bit out of the way from Downtown.
I was in town visiting my son. He lives close to the brewery, and itís one of his favorite places in the area to eat. Our server was great, and was patient with my beer questions (Utahís got some really screwy laws). I really enjoyed my food, and the beer was solid. Not the best Iíve ever had, but given Utahís 4% ABV restriction, Iím not going to criticize too much. Itís got to be challenging to produce good tasting beer when you also have to keep the beer at or under 4%. I absolutely loved the hop "garden" theyíve got planted outside.
Visited here while on vacation in August í14. Has a hunting lodge feel to it - reminds me a bit of the old Buckhead Brewery back in Tallahassee. Has about eight or so of their lagers on tap (all 4% ABV) and some higher ABV cans and bottles are available for take out. I bought two cans - had to purchase at the "tavern" portion of the brewpub and had to exit out a side door....only really weird Utah law I encountered on my visit to the state. The food was pretty solid, had a brat sandwich - nice and hearty. Beers on tap are true to style and flavorful enough. Friendly down-home staff. Worth a stop if cruising through on I-15.
Located just a few blocks closer to the freeway than Hoppers where we were greeted by a very food and restaurant knowledgeable manager (owner perhaps?) who was terrific. He knows his German beer too inside and out. He informed me of where the German beer ingredients are coming from for several of the German style house brews on tap. He went into detail about their fresh ingredients that go into all of their food that was indeed fresh and yummy. I look forward to coming back.
visited 7/22/10... hops growing in the parking lot! dark lodge type building with open tanks and a loft! lots of wood and windows... very comfortable and quite íbavarianí feeling.
four brews on tap (all lagers...very cool!) though the adorable old server snuck me a taste of the rye ( i had mentioned i have a love of!) which had not gone on yet.
the food is good but the sandwich bread was stale (my only beef with this spot). and whatís with serving schnitzel next to pizza?
very cool joint which i would live in if i were in slc!
Nice log cabin style building with hops growing everywhere. The beers are very good, if you like lagers. Your not going to find a maple-hopped-bourbon-barrel-imperial-porter-stout here, but you will find a few solid, well crafted lagers. You will also find some excellent food, from typical pub fare to the more exotic, there is something everyone will enjoy. Definitely worth a visit!
