Though not technically in Utah, we'll call it close enough as Edge of the World provide a unique setting in this border town.  Stop for a cold (and strong) beer when traveling from Zion to the Grand Canyon. 

Epic stormed the beer scene in 2008 with the bomber bottle model and ambitions that have taken them from a local State Street brewing facility to a sister brewery in Denver.  You can sample some of their beers at their "Tapless Tap Room."

Fisher has burst onto the scene in SLC so much that beer drinkers might wonder what they did before (and old-timers might be confused by the resurgence of the once-defunct brewery re-started by a Fisher great great great grandson). Opened in 2017, Fisher has a rotating line-up featuring at least 9 beers and often more like 15, which are always solid and diverse, along with a selection of food trucks out front. Add to that the "come and have a beer in my personal beer garage" attitude of the owners and it IS a wonder what SLC beer-drinkers did without Fisher.

The Hive Winery has been thinking out-of-the-box since the get-go. Based in Layton, their offerings include hard apple cider with seasonal variations. You can taste and buy at their production location.

Brewing in the heart of Sugarhouse, Hopkins also offers a great selection fo bar food and live music. 

New to the SLC scene in 2017, Kiitos has the best Finnish-inspired name and colorful beer can artwork. The brewery has a variety of beer on tap and offers some eats from neighboring Rico Foods. Kiitos also can boast some environmentally-friendly notables: ask them about their HEBS (High Efficiency Brewing System). 

Located in a beautifully remodeled industrail space in South Salt Lake, Level Crossing offers a simple, but thoughtful food menu, and a variety of fresh, cold beers.  Watch for live music, too. 

Bringing craft beer to Cedar City, Utah for the first time in over 100 years. 

Proper Brewing offers a bar with skee-ball, pool, and pinball served up with their unique beers, and next door to where you can get a great Proper Burger.

With RoHa Brewing Project, SLC gets to enjoy brewmaster Chris Haas unleashed to brew. Their cozy taproom and beer store convenient to Liberty Wells and close to the Bees' ball park makes it a great bike-in and hang-out spot.

Since 1995, Roosters has been serving up beer and pub food on Ogden's Historic 25th Street with a location casual enough to invite cyclists in post-ride as well as date night couples. With their just opened B Street Brewery, Roosters expands their production, adds a canning line and features an on-site taproom.

Shades Brewing is your South Salt Lake garage hangout complete with darts, corn hole, and furniture made of pallets. With six beers usually on draft and a number of special releases in the beer fridge available to drink or purchase and takeaway, there is always something for every beer drinker.

While several of our local breweries have dabbled in sours and alternative ales, none have opened with the premise of focusing primarily on this style of beers. Toasted Barrel will definitely add some breadth to the funky genre for Salt Lake City.

Some of us may remember when Uinta was a younger upstart competing with the Utah Brewers Cooperative (Wasatch & Squatters brewing operation). They carved out their identity with a commitment to wind power and the first organic beers available among the Utah brewers. Their line-up now includes the ever-present Cutthroat alongside new and popular Lime Pilsner and limited-run large format Crooked Line series. They also have a Brewhouse Pub (21 and over only).

The Utah Brewers Cooperative — featuring the West Side Tavern and Beer Store — is the combined production operation for Squatters and Wasatch Beers. And with the Tavern, it's now a one-stop shop for beer to go and beer to stay and savor, as well as grab a bite to eat.
