For the 21-and-over crowd, nothing is better than having a good meal and a couple lagers at your local brewery with some good friends.
No matter where you go in Salt Lake City, you’re bound to find a brewery that suits your every need. Here’s a small sampling of local establishments.
If you’re looking for an establishment with a comfortable family feel where the customers are always happy, the Bohemian Brewery is the perfect place to go.
“The servers here are very passionate about both the beer and the food they sell,” says Cristy Cruz, aka Cici. She was promoted to Bohemian’s manager position about a year after she previously worked as a bartender.
For the summer, Bohemian Brewery brought back their Kölsch brew, which is light, crisp and refreshing. They also designed a special rainbow can filled with their Helles lager for Pride Month. All proceeds from Helles were donated to the Damn These Heels LGBTQ Film Festival.
Address: 94 E. 7200 S. in Midvale
Red Rock Brewing Company has been in the business for about 25 years, making it their mission to make the best brew, most of them German and Belgian beers.
Red Rock has won Best Brew Pub twice, once in 2001 and again in 2007. They also make a point to give a portion of their proceeds back to the community.
“Our doors are open to everyone,” says William, a manager at Red Rock Brewing Co. in Fashion Place. Being licensed as a restaurant, children are welcome as well.
Red Rock Brewing Company also crafted a special beer to support Utah Pride. Their White India Pale Ale named “White Rainbow” was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2019 Mountain Brewers Festival.
Address: 443 N. 400 W. in Salt Lake City
If you can’t find something you like, check out Epic Brewing Company. Located a few blocks north of Salt Lake Community College’s South City Campus, they brew exclusively high-alcohol content beer.
Epic Brewing currently produces more than three dozen flavors, plenty for those trying to figure out what taste is right for them.

From the sour Berliner Weiss at the Bohemian or a White Rainbow at Red Rock, with so many options available in the Salt Lake Valley, you are bound to find a new favorite brew.
