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.

Nice selection, mostly bottled beer, but a few taps. No flights per UT state law. Food is Louisiana inspired and big plates for very reasonable prices. Very nice beer list of a couple of hundred beers.

A good choice when in Salt lake. They have several draft about 20 and many bottles. I only had the appetizer but it was good. I wouldnít go to salt lake for Cajun... but if you are from the west coast, why not.

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.

A bar and restaurant - was totally packed on the night I was there, but I was able to get a table on their small outdoor patio right away. You basically have to pay a $5 charge to join their club or something to be able to buy good beer. They have a pretty good selection of both drafts and bottles, including some pretty high alcohol stuff (barleywines, etc.). Service was not all that knowledgeble, but they went to find out answers that didnít know. The food was fairly standard bar food. I had the burger, and it was mediocre at best. Still, in a city that I thought of as a beer desert, this is a pretty good place.

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.

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.

Cool looking place, pool table at the back, long bar. Iím not a fan of these private club rules in Utah, but this place is worth paying what is essentially a five dollar cover. About 30 taps with a large selection of Utah microbrews. I didnít eat but other people seemed to be enjoying what they had. Friendly staff. The premiere beer spot in the city, by far.

Braudog  (820) Yorktown, Virginia | July 9, 2012
July 2012. Maybe my expectations were too high based on the hype here. Donít get me wrong, this place does have an impressive beer list. But the drafts are only the most commonly available Utah brews (plus Bud Light, Shock Top, and Guinness). And while the bottle list is pretty good, itís focused on just a few sources and is horribly overpriced. The Eoic beers from right down the street are marked up 100-500%. And while "Cajun" food might be an interesting twist, it doesnít quite gel with the beer menu, and I wasnít all that impressed. Mitbwas just OK. Iíd categorize this place as "good" but not as impressive as suggested. If pressed for SLC stops, do the breweries. Slackwater in Ogden is a more simpatico beer haven.
