Above average airport bar. Food is typical airport pub gub. Beers are tasty enough, and of course Polygamy Porter is a must if youíre in the state. I uploaded a pic to Facebook and said I was "drinking with the Mormons." A friend posted a comment asking why I would want to drink with morons. I guess Iíll have to fix that spell check thing on my iPhone.
Wasatch is located in Terminal D, while Squatters in in Terminal C. Squatters is the one to visit... Wasatch has two of their own taps (Polygamy Porter is one of them), plus a light macro lager, and itís a small pub with limited seating and a short bar. Squatters, on the other hand, is actually a large airport pub, and they have 8-9 draft selections of their own, plus 1-2 Wasatch taps (also Polygamy porter). I had the Hop Head Red on nitro at the pub, and noticed a decent lineup overall: oatmeal stout, pale ale, pilsner, and more, and the IPA was available in bottles. Funny thing is I visited this pub about 5 years ago and never knew it was on Ratebeer until I flew through SLC again in 2008.
Cool little place with a good sized bar seating area. Like their downtown location, you can order samples of any beer for $0.50. Selection was basically identical to their downtown location too, both for draught and bottled beers. Friendly, though slow, service. Worth a stop when passing through SLC airport.
Immediately adjacent to my departure gate, which worked out well. One of the better selections I have seen at an airport brewpub location, about 8 of their beers on tap, six in bottles, plus Coors light. Bar is fairly large, not that many tables. Service was decent, prices airport typical. There is a to go food service area as well. Solid fare for an airport. Didnít try the food.
Visited the Squatters location across from gate C4 during a layover last Tuesday. The setup of the bar is straight forward airport bar. The selection is pretty decent for this type of setup - 8 draft Squatter beers and 4 bottles on the menu. They do a sampler which I do not believe I have seen at an airport "brewpub". I had a Pale Ale, and it was really fresh and well served in a half liter glass. I did not eat, but food menu is was standard airport fare. Certainly worth a stop for a quick pint before or between flights.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

No host(ess) so just self seat. Tap list is visible for some people but not to others. Menu tap list does not show what specialties are on tap so you need to ask. Bottles of Outer Darkness was a surprise. Saw a guy next to me tank x2 750s of 8% Belgian strong blonde, Hellís Keeper or something. Food was awful though. Baja burrito was in a paper tasting tortilla, served so hot I couldnít hold it, with nothing inside besides beans, cheese, and dry chunks of chicken. Salsa for the stale tasting chips had rosemary added, which was really odd. Server was on and off, forgot to put in order, didnít communicate well or clearly so hard to figure out what was going on. So, yeah. Beggars canít be choosers, which is the motto of all airport venues.
Came off my connection flight to Las Vegas and found this Squatters Pub location. Small location with tables on the right and left for tables with a twelve stool bar in the middle with your back to the airport. Freindly service, but clearly a get it quick, I got to go pace. 6 sampler set of beers and others if you have time. All were drinkable and was a good change of pace for airport pubs.
A nice airport bar with a good selection of Squatters beers. A cramped spot with a good sized bar and a decent amount of seating. Service was a bit spotty but the place was jumping. A solid selection of taps for an airport plus some bottles were available as well. Food was typical airport fare as was the pricing. A pretty good airport bar IMO.
