Brewery Tap Room

After years without a tap room and much trouble and tribulation to secure licensing the day has finally come!  We are so excited to have you.  We have a wide selection of delicious beers and lots of events you won’t want to miss.    If it’s late and you’re not sure if we’re open feel free to call us  Mon-Sun at  435.200.3009.    The brewery is  a bit of a Speak Easy, located in the back of the building at 2160 S.W. Temple in SLC.  Our entrance is at 154 Utopia Ave.    We are just 2 minutes away from Hwy 80 at State Street.   If you’re not familiar with the area here is a link to a short video that shows you how to find us.     Brewery Hours and Directions

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

Slick City Citrus IPA (7%abv)

St Black Out (Belgian Tripel) 9.3% abv

Double Trouble Double IPA (10%abv)

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.   For now, we have hot dogs and chips.
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.
