First stop in SLC - following in the footsteps of my mentor. This is a pretty interesting place. Big space right alongside their production facility and business operation. Nice layout, clean and modern. Large bar and a number of tables around the perimeter. I also ordered lunch - a philly cheese steak with chicken. What came was a long ways from what I would call a philly cheesteak; I am not really sure what it was, but it was hella messy, and I ended up eating the contents with a fork and leaving the sopping bun. Fries were solid. A number of beers available as pints or tasters. 4 oz taster pours for $1 each, which turned out to be ridiculously expensive by SLC standards as I was to find out later. You can only have TWO at a time, BTW, not sure if the rules changed in the last year or if Borken is smoking the reefer. I am not a huge fan of Uinta’s lineup, and the 4% Utah compliant versions did little to improve my feelings.
First (beer) stop in SLC. The pub is newly reopened, so I got to check that out. They also have a small little store where you can buy bottles and swag.
Pretty good sized restaurant/bar space. A small patio out front too, though I’m guessing that’s got a limited time frame in which it’s usable throughout the year. Really nicely done space. Feels very open and modern. Clean design.
Sat at the bar and ordered lunch--a sausage sandwich with sweet potato tater tots. The sausage and the tots were good. The sandwich as a whole was just okay.
They do pints and tasters, as well as bottles of the higher ABV stuff. I was surprised that there were a lot of things I hadn’t had before. They do flights of 3 at a time (thanks, Utah) and those cost $2. Pints are like $4, I believe. Beers were mostly pretty good, though some of them were a little bland. Nothing bad, though.
Probably one of the most well known breweries in the area and they make some pretty decent stuff.
Updated review: They just opened up the remodeled brewpub. I left underwhelmed by the whole place. It used to be a nice place to visit, warm and inviting. Now it feels like any other tap room, sterile and cold. The food was just OK (sausage sandwich). I won’t be spending as much time here.
The good: It is much bigger, longer hours and has a larger menu.
Original review (7/2009): Great place to go and wind down after work. Friendly people, good food and great beer. 4/8/13/8/7/17=84
It’s another brewery located in an industrial park which means plenty of parking. Decent tap room set up. Went in the afternoon where the place had more of a meeting in the taproom type atmosphere. They had 7-8 4% on tap and all the bottles for sale refrigerated. Decent but not spectacular experience.
we visited this laid back brewery on 7/23/10.
oddly located in an industrial area on the west side. pull up and the neighborhood smells like beer!
quiet pleasant bar with friendly knowledgeable staff sin the middle of the brewery... cool.
8 beers on tap, a bunch more to go along with a slew of schwag.
definitely worth the visit.

Been here a few times. It’s a nice little place with a bar and a few tables, also a pool table. There are about 8 beers on tap. Some are only available on the site. The bartender there is a really nice guy, and got me a sixer of some Bristlecone Brown Ale, which was only available in a Fall/Winter Sampler. They also have chili and sandwiches for sale. They also have some sweatshirt’s and tee’s for sale as well. If you are in the area, take a stop by, highly recommended.
