Been here a couple of times already. It’s a very nice place, but parking is a bitch. There’s a PF Chang’s across the street if you want Chinese (Pretty Good). The atmosphere is very nice the two time’s I was there. Got a couple of different brew’s while there. Service was very nice and price was not bad at all. All brew’s are 4% or lower, sorry. There are some one-offs also being offered once in a while.Food was pretty good, friend order something which was not bad at all, something wrapped in lettuce (chicken, mushrooms, sweet sauce). If you are in the SLC area stop by.
Great little brewpub in downtown Salt Lake City, walking distance from the big church thingimabob. Plenty of street parking. Only had a small taste of this place (about 45 minutes worth), but the Fifth Element bottles are more than worth the stop, and there were probably a dozen other beers available on tap / cask / nitro, including a Mild ale and a couple of IPAs. Edamame was fantastic (how often does one say that?) and everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. Little gift shop at the front, lots of seating indoors and on the patio, huge ceilings, and friendly waitstaff. Definitely worth a stop if you’re traveling on 80 or 15.

Visited on a weekday for lunch after a nice tour of the temple square. Ambiance was typical converted industrial building, nice reuse. Service was prompt, but friendliness seemed forced and distracted. The selection was good I got to try one of everything on their list. The food was also good, but no fry sauce? What kind of respectable Utah restaurant doesn’t have fry sauce? I would have to wait to try it. Definately worth the stop in Salt Lake City for decent, albiet 3.2% alcohol, beer.
Squatters was what I was hoping to find in SLC. Good Beer selection and good food. Never had any problem finding a helping hand when questioning the laws or the styles on tap. I would definitively visit them again on my next trip to SLC.
Wow, this place has lots of seating including outdoors. It didn’t seem this big from outside. They have a split bar where the half closest to the street can be served +4% ABV without being required to order food. I like all the GABF medals that hang above the kitchen side of the split bar (further from the street). They serve up the elixirs in sampler sizes, 13oz, 20oz, pitcher and growlers to go. Since I’m not in the “bar” I’ll be trying the food so I can get a chance at a bottle of Ava Lee (YUM). The food is very tasty and sways away from the typical fare by offering hummus, edamame and the like. Good stuff. The interior has an industrial wood and brick look and feel to it with big glass windows bringing in lots of natural light.

A pretty cool place to hang out. Lots of cute girls and the beer and food wasn’t to bad either. The bartender was very informative and explained the wacky Utah liquor laws.

Brew pub on the west side of downtown. Usually about 12 beers to select from including some hard to get seasonals. Good food and service and overall a nice relaxed atmosphere. Decent beers, including a few over that dreaded 4%ABV. A nice place.
Good looking little place, decent sized bar and table seating areas. They’ve got a bunch of beer medals won through the years hanging above the bar. Beers were alright, though I think ABV laws handicap the brewers. Food was quite good. Not a big fan of the waterless urinals in the bathroom though. And yes, bathrooms do affect my rating of a place.
Had 6 of their regulars and 3 specials of theirs on draft! Food was good and plentiful, but my frieds seafood chowder was too much like a tuna (very fishy) chowder. Liked the place, but the street numbering and traffic downtown leaves a lot to be desired!
Nice setting, and the food is good. Bier is Utah-legislature bound, and does a good job of stretching the limits on flavor. Still, if you’re looking for better food, go around the corner to Red Rock which has equally law-bound beer and better eats.
Big open industrial looking space with a large outdoor seating area in back. The building itself is pretty cool looking as well. Friendly service. I sat at the bar where I watched the brewer working away on a batch of something in the adjoining brewery. Decent selection, although only the Oatmeal Stout and Suspension Pale were really worth nothing... although both were quite good. Food was pretty solid (like all of the food I has in SLC). The seasonals could have been a bit more inspired but at least they’re trying in the face of a stupid law. Worth stopping in if you’re in town for a conference.
