I stopped here for lunch and tried a couple of their beers. Never having been to Salt Lake City before, I expected their brewing scene to be kind of awful. Luckily, Squatters impressed me. The beers were nothing outstanding, but they were solid all around.

I ordered a chicken stew kind of thing, in a spicy sauce. It was very tasty, but a little spicy. All around, I was very impressed with this place if only because I expected so little.

I hate to see Red Rocks have a better rating than Squatter's, so I'll throw my hat in the ring. Yeah, It's Salt Lake City, you are drinking in the Mormon capitol of the world, so don't expect a fully developed craft brew scene, don't expect a lot of drinking options and don't expect to get drunk easily (just kidding, it is still America, you can get hammered in SLC). I go to Salt Lake once a year for a conference, and would prefer to drink at one of the mountains or Park City, but in downtown, my choice is Squatter's. It's in a great old building that has an interesting history, it can be busy, but the service is decent. The beer is alright, I like the Nitro Cream Ale, it's a good beer to do well in state with ABV limits. The food is pretty good for pub grub, they make a tasty reuben, and I even like their airport location. Remember, you are drinking in Utah.

This place was packed when I showed up. I had a sampler, and nothing really stood out to me. I didn't try any of the food. To be fair, I wasn't here all that long. I just squeezed my way to the bar, pounded a sampler to see how everything was, and left because there's better beer around the corner at Red Rocks. People love this place though, so maybe I just have poorer taste in beer than the folks of Salt Lake City.

What to do after a long day in the "saddle" driving from Idaho to Utah in 100+ degree heat wanting only to reach your destination, put your feet up and say, "one less day on the road."

Why get a beer, of course!

Now mind you, Mormons are not allowed to drink coffee...or caffeine...or smoke tobacco...or have sex before marriage...or swear...or drink alcohol.

I mention this because I have to believe those "commandments" might affect some of the Utah-anians we met at Squatters.

This was the third of three brewpubs we planned to visit on this trip through the state and our encounter here convinced us to not only get out of Utah as fast as possible but to never return....and sleep with one eye open that night.

On this particular sunny inferno of a day, we walked into a place crawling with people. People packed in like little Vienna sausages. The only place we found for three was at the end of a stainless steel bar.

We sat down...well actually, I sat down because what happened next didn't provide enough time for my wife and son to even join me, it happened that fast.

I sat down. A young 20-something with a green baseball cap, lip and ear piercings looked at me, held up a finger as to say "Wait!" and walked away. A moment later he returned, threw...didn't toss...THREW a coaster at me and said, "What?"
"I'd like a sampling of all the beers you brew please?"
"What?"
He spoke over the din of the crowd noise.
I repeated, a little louder...
"I'd LIKE A SAMPLING OF ALL YOUR..."
"You don't have to yell at me sir."
"Excuse me?"
"You don't have to yell at me."
"Well young man, apparently I do because you either choose not to hear me the first time I asked or didn't hear me. So
which was it?"
"Whadda want?"
"A little customer service would be great."
"Not if you yell at me."
"Fine."
And we walked out.
As I said, all those Mormon "no's" probably made him a bit cranky. I know the heat was playing tricks on me. I thought we had walked into a public place to get a drink. Apparently we had walked into a daily meeting of the "What the hell are you doing here?" club.
Sorry pal. Didn't mean to hurt your bar.

The brewpub is located in downtown Salt Lake City and has available on site parking, but it also is within walking distance of most hotels. It is also located very close to Red Rock Brewing.

Beer selection was excellent with a full line ranging from pilsners, multiple IPAs and darker selections. Best I tried was stout.

Also offered a full food menu but didn't eat. Was quite busy on a Wednesday night and appears to be a fairly trendy place in SLC.

Very nice brewpub/restaurant. I happened in here for lunch last fall and had a great experience. There beer I tried were all true to style and had a wonderful flavor. The Chasing tale Ale sticks in my mind and I am kicking my self at the airport in SLC for not stopping by there this trip. The food I had was good, standard pub fare. the stmosphere was open and light, however the bar area was a tad tight. All in all this was a great place to get a bite and a good beer.

I've been to this place a few times with friends. The beer is superb, but rather pricey, and the food is not that great. Still, if you're in it for the beer this is not a place to miss. Their IPA is available at Utah liquor stores, and is one of my mainstays when I am enjoying a brew at home. I personally like quiet settings for drinking, but Squatters is somewhat noisy and cacophonous. Most of my friends, however, seem to like that aspect. Parking can be difficult, but it's worth the hassle.

Squatters Brew pub is a great pub with a great setting in downtown Salt Lake City. This has a great look and the patio has a great setting to overlook the beautiful Pioneer park which at that’s time was not full of some of Utah’s finest citizens. LOL The food was great they have some great selections to choose from. I loved the brews and they are not watered down who ever says that does not know there beer very well. It was good and does not taste like water what so ever. This is a place to stop in Utah. One of the first brew pubs in Utah. The Oatmeal Stout has been awesome for over 10 years. Stop, drink and have fun cause tomorrow you might have to visit the temple. Cheers to you Brothers and Sisters…

Evidently the first Squatters location is also Salt Lake Brewing Co, at least that’s what the sign above the door says. There is a straight double bar along one side, in front of the kitchen and brewing areas. The adjacent area is one long room filled with tables and there is a large covered patio out back. There are a dozen taps but only 8 brews listed on the tap boards. I asked if there was a complete list and the waitress didn’t seem to know so you should check with the bartender. I had a nitro Chasing Tail Golden Ale and a Millcreek Cream Stout; both were pretty good. I may have missed a couple current medal winners, Provo Girl Pilsner or Alt & In the Way (don’t know if it was available or not). The menu includes a complete range of items from appetizers to full dinner entrees. We were told that because of their license, if you want more than one round you have to also order a food item. We found parking on the street but there is also a pay lot next door.
