“Cheers for the beers!”

-Alex Brumley, Everybody Wants Some! [2016]

Full throttle to the bottle boys. Ferda. It’s been an amazing few years for craft breweries in Salt Lake City. An increase in population and an increase in demand happened all at once, and our brilliant beer brewers have taken full advantage. Local craft breweries are opening their own brew pubs for us to eat and fill our growlers, collaborating with local food trucks, staying on top of the latest trends (hazy IPA and sour fans, rise up!), and ensuring that Utahns get can always get great beers on tap even with our 4% limit. We are so fortunate to have such a talented group, and I would argue that the Best Breweries in Salt Lake City make up some of the Best Breweries in the US.

When Jack White was still with The White Stripes, he would intentionally make things difficult for himself in the pursuit of creatively challenging himself. With only two members in the band, White had to operate within tight constraints in The White Stripes, and it made him more inventive. I feel like Utah craft breweries have to do the same. They have to work within the guidelines that the Utah DABC allows them to operate. While this would be a huge hindrance for most craft breweries, the breweries in Salt Lake City have thrived because of their ingenuity, creativity, and passion.

So cheers to everyone (except for the Utah DABC), and enjoy the Best Breweries in Salt Lake City! Like the Utah craft beer scene, this list is always expanding. Let us know your favorite Utah brewers in the comments below!
