3fourths (1569) Boulder, Colorado | October 11, 2004| Updated January 21, 2013
Regular microbrewer building layout and atmosphere. Easy parking, not that busy when I went during the early evening. People were nice, beer was pretty good considering the area. I was bummed that a few of their beers are bottle only, and sold in 6packs only, so I would have to go down to the state-run liquor store to buy a single bottle. Oh well. Worth stopping, probably the best spot in SLC.
Walked over from Red Rock with Bonnie and Dallas. Similar story in terms of the crowd as the place was packed, but also just had a very different vibe.
We were able to snag a few seats at the bar after waiting for a few minutes and ordered some samples. The bartender serving us seemed to be some combination of disinterested and worn out because it was kind of difficult to get his attention and get a beer. Oh well...
They have a lot of beers to try here. In addition to their normal lineup, a number of seasonal releases. I thought the beer quality was kind of meh overall, but a couple decent offerings.
I didn’t like this place quite as much as many of the other beer bars and brewpubs in the city. Crowded, dark, and very noisy. Just not quite my scene.
I can see this place from my hotel window, which is pretty cool. Very large older space, loads of seating and a fairly long bar right in the front. Samples are 50 cents, bottles available. They have a few Wasatch beers as well due to the odd interrelationship between those breweries (odd in that I don’t know exactly what it is). Service was good, but the bar was long enough that with one bartender it sometimes took a while. Cool to finally check out the home of Outer Darkness!
Big brewpub right in downtown SLC. Vagrants are outside panhandling, which isn’t the greatest greeting upon entering this place. Sat up at the bar and took a while to get noticed and served, though staff were friendly when they finally got around to it. You can order samples of any beer for $0.50, two beers at a time per person, so it is very ticking friendly. Draught beer is of course nothing special due to the stupid 4% law; the bottles, from previous experience, are much better, especially the Outer Darkness Imperial Stout, which was available. We ate dinner here as well, since they had a couple of vegan options: the veggie burger, however, wasn’t impressive (dry and flavourless); the thai green curry was quite tasty though. Portions are massive. Worth a stop when in town.
Great beer and good food. Jenny does a great job of putting many different specialty beers on tap along with the regulars. They always have at least one beer on cask and one on nitro.
Great atmosphere and staff.
Visited here while on vacation in August ’14. Fun, energetic brewpub with an old warehouse kind of feel to it. Service was prompt and friendly. Had a good dozen or so of their beers on tap and higher ABV selections available for takeout. Good varied menu, a little bit of everything, prices about what I would expect for a downtown brewpub. I had the Blackened Tilapia Salad and it was superb. Stop by if spending any amount of time in SLC.
Big open industrial looking space with a large outdoor seating area in back. The building itself is pretty cool looking as well. Friendly service. I sat at the bar where I watched the brewer working away on a batch of something in the adjoining brewery. Decent selection, although only the Oatmeal Stout and Suspension Pale were really worth nothing... although both were quite good. Food was pretty solid (like all of the food I has in SLC). The seasonals could have been a bit more inspired but at least they’re trying in the face of a stupid law. Worth stopping in if you’re in town for a conference.
Squatters Brew pub is a great pub with a great setting in downtown Salt Lake City. This has a great look and the patio has a great setting to overlook the beautiful Pioneer park which at that’s time was not full of some of Utah’s finest citizens. LOL The food was great they have some great selections to choose from. I loved the brews and they are not watered down who ever says that does not know there beer very well. It was good and does not taste like water what so ever. This is a place to stop in Utah. One of the first brew pubs in Utah. The Oatmeal Stout has been awesome for over 10 years. Stop, drink and have fun cause tomorrow you might have to visit the temple. Cheers to you Brothers and Sisters…
