A jazz band is often playing, and the place is always packed. Forget about all that: there are over 200 types of beers here, and many really great ones. No trip tp SLC would be complete without. Some beers often available include many locals, Rochefort, Cantillion, Chimay, Full Sail, Big Sky, Fullers, and many more. The selection comes and goes, but is always excellent. Also check the íoff-the menuí menu.

Great selection in SLC for beer! While in the area, try the Epic brewery just down the street.

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.)

Could be a crowded place depending on the time of visit. Seating is first come first serve, which can suck. What doesnít suck is the awesome food and the large diverse beer selection. I had the Jambalaya with crawfish and it was d-lish. I also took in a few local brews on tap from Red Rock, Uinta and Roosters. douglas88 enjoyed a 2004 vintage Cantillon Iris. The place has the goods alright. During my 10pm to 12am visit they had very nice live music too. If I ever move to SLC Iíd need to be close enough to be a regular at this place.

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.

Been there many times and the service varies dramatically. Some of the wait staff have great knowledge on beer and are attentive, other not so much. Our favorite beer spot in Utah.

Hey, was I surprised by this place?? No fucking shit. Beautiful women everywhere and a beer list that was very nice. Had a Piraat as the Karmaliet was gone. Have a live bands but this is a great beer bar for Utah.

Great spot within walking distance of Brewvies. Best bottle list in town -- especially when it comes to imports. Nice staff and mellow atmosphere. One of the best places in SLC.

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.
