The selection is the best I have seen since I move to Utah the food and wait staff are excellent. Get there early if you are going on a friday or saturday night because most of salt lake will try to cram their way in.

Great place. Beer selection is excellent for the area, and they were not out of any of my selections, as so many other "great" beer menu places have been. Food is a varied selection of fresh and tasty stuff; bartender is very knowledgeable. This is a good restaurant and pub that is trying to be a great beer destination , and is succeeding.

A very lively cajun themed beer bar/resto in downtown SLC very close to Epic Brewing. Staff was okay but maybe spread too thin to be effective. My main complaint here was that while equipped with AC they did not have it on. I donít know if they were saving $ or trying to be green but it made for a very unpleasant experience.
Donít be fooled by the extensive beer menu, many of the selections listed were not in stock. Still enough there for most beer geeks to find something to make them happy. Gripe #2, if I order a large format bottle, I donít want the whole thing poured into one giant glass. I want to share the darn thing with the people I am eating/drinking with.
Food was decent, recommend sticking with the cajun dishes. Burgers were ho-hum. So turn on the AC, hire two or three more servers, and keep the list updated or printed with things that are always kept in stock and print up a new arrivals/specials insert.

Great selection of beer. This place has an awesome menu of local, regional, seasonal and world beer. The food ranges from average to really good depending on what you get. Typical pub fare with some great souther hits. The place has a nice ambiance. Old brick building with a nice bar. I would recommend hitting this place up. Itís nice to see such a great beer menu in Salt Lake.

They donít call themselves Beervana for no reason.
Plenty of taps, mostly Utah beers, but also a few others. A great beer menu of many different US and overseas beers. I didnít eat so I canít comment on that.

Itís Utah, so the prices are just silly as they have to buy from the State DABC at th same cost as Joe Public (no wholesale alc in Utah!), then they markup even higher ustto survive. Not there fault really, itís jut Utah.
The beer selection is second to none and the staff seems to know right off which few they are out of stock. Rare beer s galore! The food is good, but pricey for a pub. It was much too hip of a place before Utah got rid of the membership/private club law, now it seems to have mellowed a little, dropping some of the yuppies.
The jazz combos in the corner are always a nice touch and not so loud they overwhelm. IItís a great place to go and try a beer youíve never heard of before, and often the only place (outside searching the liqour stores) youíre going to find the more obscure brews.

This social club has the only decent bottled beer selection in town, and the menu is incorrect most of the time. I canít tell you how many times I picked 2-3 beers in a row and ALL of them were not in stock.
Service is atrocious. More effort is put into hiring young females than competent servers. Atmosphere is contemporary beer bar in nature with decor, but itís hard to overcome the shortcomings in service and selection. Theyíre only in business because there is no real competition for the craft beer consumer who wants normal ABV beers in SLC.

Had to pay a "membership" fee like all Utah bars. The parking sux. The place is nice, reminds me of a loft w/ exposed brick walls. Went there on a week day and it was still very busy. Nice beer selection w/ very resonable. Would definitely recommend this place to other people. Staff was pretty knowledgeable on beers.

This place rocks, but the prices on the brews are out rageous. I had the Hoppin John for lunch, very tasty with some fries and sweet potatoe fries. Next came the brews, ordered the 750ml of Unibroue Terrible the price was not bad, but alot more than I can get a bottle for. Next came a bottle of Samichlaus, price was better, but still on the pricey side. They do have a bunch of awesome brews though. Since I have a bunch of these at home, the pickings were a little slim, but mangaged to pick a couple out for this time around. Overall this place brings a nice reality to UT, but I wish the priceís would come down.

The best beer bar in SLC. The selection is immense. The only problem with it is that the menu isnít always updated with what is currently in stock. And some of the more íexoticí brews (ha! beer itself is exotic in this state) are often not available. The place can get real loud, which sucks for me and my bad hearing. The service is okay, though the waitresses are not really beer people. My only problem with this place is the food. I know people like it, but not me. My parents live in Louisiana, so I have an idea of what Cajun food is (sorry to sound arrogant) and this isnít it. Iíve only tried a couple of things, both of which disappointed me, so I may be off on this, but I donít think so. (Note: Everyone I go with to this place love the sweet potato fries. I donít like sweet potatoes, so the fries donít appeal to me. But you may love them.)
