In Utah, beer above 4% abv is considered alcohol and a club license is required in order to be able to serve it over the counter.  We just got our “Club License”!  This means you can drink all our products at the tap room.    Our new license always allows us to serve wine and spirits.   A cocktail menu is in planning, but we currently offer wine and shots of tequila, vodka, whisky, and spirits from local distillers.     We also have a bottle shop where you can buy bottles to go.   Currently in bottles we have:

Misdirected IPA  7% abv

City Citrus IPA (7%abv)

St Black Out (Belgian Tripel) 9.3% abv

Double Trouble Double IPA (10%abv)

Hogshead Reserve (Edition 3) 11% abv



Do you have Growlers?

Yes!  You can buy a growler to go.  We do fill your growler.  It’s $10 to fill.  If you need glass, we have growlers you can purchase for $5.

SPECIAL RELEASEHogshead Reserve-1

Hogshead Reserve is our premium line of barrel aged beers.  After an extraordinary launch which sold out edition 1 and 2, our team has created what we believe is yet another exceptional Ale.

Edition 3 leverages our legendary Belgian Tripel recipe.   As this is the second run of the barrels, we were looking for a light bodied beer that would complement well the oak flavors we expected to extract from the barrels this time around.  We think you are going to love the dry, peach and pear flavors that are gently dipped with oak and a hint of bitterness.


We are in the process of building out our menu.   Below Tony tells you a little bit about his Italian Sausage and peppers.

Jimmy John's Menu
Until your menu is complete you are welcome to bring in food.  Pat’s BBQ is two doors down.  Vertical Vegan Pizza is down the street.   Jimmy Johns and  Este Pizza will deliver.    


We LOVE dogs.  We have a dog friendly patio.  The health department won’t let us have the furry friends inside the brewery, but they can be outside.  It’s not a fancy place. It actually looks a bit like a prison yard (full disclosure) but you’ll find some pretty awesome beer and what we hope will fee like home away from home.   We have a fire pit in the back to help keep you warm, and we have bowls of water in the summer.


Artfully Crafted Beers

We believe in dreams and human potential.  We believe in passion an doing what you love.  We believe in hard work, in excellence and creativity.  The expression of what we believe is the beer. Our passion is in the bottle, our joy is in sharing it.
