After a pretty awful beer in Albuquerque I wasnít much in the mood for another, but with a half-hour layover this place seemed interesting enough to at least check in on. In terms of ambiance itís exactly what youíd expect from an airport bar, but on the positive side itís (1) a craft brew taproom in an airport, and (2) >4% beer in Salt Lake City. Never heard nobody complain!
Revisit a couple of months later: Awful service. The first rule of brewpub is "serve people beer". Instead, after Iíd finished my first, my server disappeared for 15 minutes; when I finally got her attention, she promptly forgot my order and disappeared again for another 10 minutes until my food came, at which point a different server took pity on me and tracked down my beer. Then they gave away my sonís meal to someone else, and served him after the rest of us had finished our food. Pretty much bottom of the barrel for service.

Not bad for an airport bar. Good selection of beer and ok food. My biggest complaint is that the bar stools were bolted onto the ground relatively close to the bar and for a big guy that doesnít make things easy.

Horrible food, completely bland and cheap ingredients. The tables were packed in too tightly, and the ímanagerí tossed my plate down in front of me after verifying that it was my food.
I almost felt sorry for the server that took my order because he seemed rather competant and knowledgeable.
Next time, Iíll have the beer but ill bring McDonalds. Better food.

Comments: Airport bar so you know... No host(ess) so just self seat. Tap list is visible for some people but not to others. Menu tap list does not show what specialties are on tap so you need to ask. Bottles of Outer Darkness was a surprise. Saw a guy next to me tank x2 750s of 8% Belgian strong blonde, Hellís Keeper or something. Food was awful though. Baja burrito was in a paper tasting tortilla, served so hot I couldnít hold it, with nothing inside besides beans, cheese, and dry chunks of chicken. Salsa for the stale tasting chips had rosemary added, which was really odd. Server was on and off, forgot to put in order, didnít communicate well or clearly so hard to figure out what was going on. So, yeah. Beggars canít be choosers, which is the motto of all airport venues.

Typical airport bar with a large selection of expensive beer. Lot of tables packed in so tight that there is no room for your carry on. Decent enough nachos and taco salad. Surprisingly knowledgeable waiter.

Was going through my review of Utah beers and realized I was here. It was day after GABF 2010 and I was hungover wasting time during a layover. Typical brewpub ambiance and a few local beers on tap which is great for an airport really. I went with the Wasatch Hefe as it seemed lease likely to make me vomit., but now I wish I had porter.

So, I wondered up to what looks like a space with two entry points and Iím not sure which to take. Of course I take the wrong one and ended up taking a tour in this sort of ďCĒ shaped space that wraps around the Ďkitchení sort of bar/tap area. The help was friendly, fast and efficient. This all worked out very well as I only had about 15 minutes before my flight and the help was very accommodating. I look forward to my next visit with hopefully a longer lay-over.

Had brunch when I landed in SLC. They did a pretty good job of transferring the vibe of their downtown pub to an airport location.

Location across from D4. One of the tiniest airport bars Iíve ever seen. They only had 4 taps: two Wasatch and 2 BMC. Definitely not worth a walk from Concourse B
