Beer in the Beehive

Mmmm, Beer
Salt Lake isn’t typically thought of as the epicenter of beer, but on your next visit you may be surprised by the amount of good beer in the Beehive State.

Squatters - Just the BarIf you’re looking for some delicious grub to accompany your brew there are several breweries whose food could be bragged about as easily as their beers. Squatters Pubs and Beer’s flagship location is in the heart of downtown. Its first pour was in 1989 and it’s only gotten better with time, even winning ‘Midsize Brewery of the Year’ at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival. People come for the beer and come again for Squatters’ excellent food prided on local, organic and eco-friendly standards.

Right around the corner is Red Rock Brewing Company, 2009 winner of ‘Large Brewery of the Year’ at the Great American Beer Festival. This popular beer stop boasts delicious pizza, salads and brewpub atmosphere.

For a full dining experience, head for Porcupine Grill. Located at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, Porcupine is perfect for après ski, including some excellent beers. Also in the Cottonwood area are Bohemian Brewery and Hoppers, both local alehouses.

The Bayou Live MusicFor a larger selection of beer on tap or bottled, head over to the The Bayou. With the most extensive beer list in Utah, The Bayou’s menu features more than 300 different beers. New Orleans-influenced food complements the great atmosphere with frequent live jazz bands and pool.

A local’s favorite, the Beerhive Pub has an impressive beer list. With a unique ice bar to keep your class chilled, this is the place to be on the weekends. Belly up to the bar, relax with some friends in one of the booths, take in the energy of downtown out on the patio or step outside to experience the energy of downtown – whatever you choose, the Pub will have the perfect beer for you.

Epic BeersNewest to the Salt Lake brewery scene is Epic Brewery. Epic prides itself as Utah’s first brewery since prohibition to brew exclusively high alcohol content beer. The ANNEX by Epic Brewing recently opened in the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake and offers a bohemian atmosphere and casual dining, serving lunch, dinner and late night fare.

Of course, there are hundreds of additional eateries, pubs and bars serving a wide range of local, national and international beers in the Salt Lake area. Trust us on this one!
