Desert Edge is kind of unique. They have food that tends towards lighter and healthier. Well, I guess thatís the unique part. Unfortunately, I think the beer has dropped in quality. About a year ago, I loved it. A lot of the offerings were interesting, or at least solid. The last couple of times Iíve gone there this wasnít the case. In particular it tastes like the beer was made with old hops, giving it this grassy flavor. Itís unfortunate because I really like the place (especially the hot roast beef sandwich!)

This place is tucked away into a small rustic looking shopping and dining plaza. Iíve been told the food is excellent. Very organic and healthy fare. Iíll have to try some next time Iím able to stop by. They had about six house offerings on tap including one nitro and one cask option. More proof the SLCís craft brew scene is blooming with places like Red Rock, Bayou and Squatters all just a couple minute drive from here.

A kid of trendy spot that had okay food and beers that are brewed there but that have very little flavor.

The brewpub is located inside a sort of mall complex called trolley square. The overall feel is like a restaurant of OK quality. The prices are great, and the food is quite good, with a bunch of healthy stuff. The beer is also above average, especially in the context of Utahís stupid beer laws they do a great job. I like this place a lot. During the week itís pretty damn quite, but weekends are busy.

Located in a strange mall-like building that was under renovations when I was there, making it nearly impossible to find. Only had two beers while I was here, but I was impressed with the quality of both. Sandwich I had tasted good but was a little bit sloppy. The decor is a bit uninspired., sort of typical brewpub. Good service and I think itís worth a stop if youíre in SLC.

A nice place to start my Great Utah Beer Run Ė Summer 2007 In trolley square the place was in a loft and had some nice food, the beers where at times so so. This was a typical college hangout as you can tell with some good beer prices they just need to brew better beer. The service was nice and the bartender had some beer knowledge and told me about the beer laws of which helps. 1 down 8 to go.

Nice place, great food, some of the beers are really bad (donít get the stout), one of the bar tenders had a t-shirt that said 3.2 and proud... really? This place gets points for the $5 pitchers for college students after 2 pm

First visit in 2000 and last in June 2003: This is an odd location in a renovated shopping area. Both times, I was underimpressed by the lack of cleaniness. They have a couple different styles of beer, which is nice. Most of the beers were average at best, but they had an awesome hoppy pale ale.

Great sandwiches and pasta salads. Iíve had about everything on the menu. Great place to go on an afternoon date or just to have lunch with your pals. The beer is good, not great, good. Selection isnt the best with only 4 beers on tap. Surrounded by antiqued brick and iron, the feel is very old school pub. Nice bar, and outdoor patio. Very laid back, classy, downtown feel.

I would not recommend this place. Located in a mall-like block connected to the train line. Itís uber-trendy, looks like it was designed in the 80ís to be futuristic. Dark black everywhere, sharp miami-vice design. Long bar with an inexperienced bartender who had trouble talking about the beer but also had trouble with just about everything else he was doing. The beer is average... they try a few interesting styles but donít make them well. The restaurant is peppered with reminders of all of their GABF awards, but they won all of those pre 1998 and nothing since, so they either used to have a good brewer and they left, or back then there wasnít much good competition at the festivals.
