The 10 Best Breweries in Utah!

The tides have been changing in Utah. Over the last several years, the Beehive State has developed a burgeoning brewery scene. Today, Utah is home to a wide variety of top-notch breweries serving up the best IPAs, lagers, and ales around. Here are our 10 favorites in the state.  

Epic Brewing Company, Salt Lake City, UT

A relatively new brewery on the Utah scene, Epic Brewing Company’s small-batch, artisanal beers have quickly become favorites of locals and out of state visitors. After first opening in Salt Lake City with six fermentation tanks, Epic Brewing Company has since opened a second location in Denver, Colorado. The original Salt Lake City brewery? It is now eight times as big as it was when it first opened. 

Bohemian Brewery and Grill, Midvale, UT

Opened in 2001, Bohemian Brewery prides itself on its time-consuming processes and wholesome ingredients. Particularly well-known for its 1842 Pilsner Lager, 1841 Viennese Lager, and Cherny Bock Schwarzbier, the brewery continues to safeguard its original brewing traditions. 

Red Rock Brewing Co., Salt Lake City, UT

With two locations in Salt Lake City and one in Park City, Red Rock Brewing Co. has been on the Utah scene since 1994. Since its opening, however, the brewery has made a name for itself on the national stage. With 100 regional and national awards under its belt, this brewery is definitely worth your buck.  

Desert Edge Brewery at The Pub, Salt Lake City, UT

Located at the popular Trolley Square in Salt Lake City, Desert Edge Brewery at The Pub aims not to let business get in the way of quality. The brewery tries to break rules and create excellent food, all the while giving their customers a world-class experience. 

Squatters Craft Beer, Salt Lake City, UT

Squatter’s is a crowd favorite. Sure, the locals love its beers, but they are also in love with the brewery as a social gathering place. With good food and good beer, people flock to Squatter’s for both the company and the craft. 

Moab Brewery, Moab, UT

For many visitors to Southern Utah’s national parks, a good pint is a great way to wind down after a day on the sunny trails. The Moab Brewery has a near monopoly on the beer and food scenes in the small but legendary town of Moab. With a wide variety of beers inspired by red rock country, the brewery’s most popular is called “Dead Horse Ale.” 

Uinta Brewing Co., Salt Lake City, UT

Uinta Brewing Co. in Salt Lake City is a simple brewery with a large number of enticing small-batch beers, including gluten-free and seasonal brews. Uinta Brewing Co. is also a phenomenal place for a low-key night on the town with its regular trivia night competitions. 

Park City Brewery, Park City, UT

Some say where a beer is brewed has a lot to do with the quality of that beer. Likewise, Park City Brewery is convinced that brewing and canning their beers in the mountains of Park City has a magical effect. Luckily, beer connoisseurs tend to agree. 

Wasatch Brewery, Park City, UT

Wasatch Brewery in Park City has a number of beers that have influenced cooking and brewing across the state. Their most famous beer is the “Polygamy:” A distinguished porter named for the polygamous practices of 19th century Mormons. If you’re not in the mood for beer, the pub is just as celebrated for its pizza, burgers, and sandwiches. 

Shades Brewing, Salt Lake City, UT

Considered as more of a low-key “speak-easy,” this downtown Salt Lake City brewery is definitely more discreet than others. That said, it’s a unique experience that merits indulgence.
