Beer in Salt Lake is getting a makeover. Local beer enthusiasts have something besides great, local craft beer to celebrate these days.

In a recent move by the Utah Legislature, a compromise has been reached on allowing 4% beer to be sold in grocery and convenient stores throughout Utah. This increase, previously the alcohol content in beer in Utah was 3.2%, was determined based on information received from certain beer manufacturers hinting they would no longer be making the reduced brew. Craft beer drinkers have already been consuming a heavier brew as breweries tend to produce a 4% or higher product.

Here are some great places to grab a beer this weekend.

Squatters

The first Squatters beer was poured in 1989, since then the demand for their handcrafted beer has surged and you can find their award-winning brews in many local restaurants, hotels, bars, resorts, and the airport. From a double IPA (Hop Rising) to their hefeweizen (American Wheat) the variety of brews provides a tasty exploration.

147 W Broadway

 

Boeheim Brewery

Since 2001, Boeheim Brewery has been producing old central-European lagers. On a mission to perfect the ‘the old school brew”, the legendary Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, the brewers at Boeheim take their sweet time crafting the best lager, in small batches, using only natural ingredients. Try the 1842 Czech Pilsener, the signature taste first brewed in 1842, it’s a classic.

94 E Fort Union Blvd

Proper Brewing Co

Launching with their balanced ale, the English Golden Ale, Proper Beer brewers prefer the full flavors of unfiltered beer. This process, or lack thereof, will cause a bit of hazy color to your glass. Rest assured, you will taste a rich and hoppy brew that they believe taste better than most. Try a class for yourself.

857 S Main Street

 

Red Rock Brewery

This award-winning brew has been around since 1994. Producing six brands that can be purchased in restaurants, the state liquor store, and other locations throughout the state, the company added a dedicated brewery to support growth in 2011. From draft ‘session’ classics to their artist palette line of craft beers, you may find a new unique flavor combination that will surprise you.

254 S 200 W

The Bayou

Proudly known as Utah’s largest beer bar, The Bayou offers local microbreweries an extensive selection of bottled beers. If tasting various local beer is on your bucket list, head over to The Bayou. Epic, 2 Row, Kiitos, and Moab are all on deck. And that is really just naming a few.

645 S State Street

 

Wasatch Brewery

Utah’s first brewery, offering craft beer since 1986.  Wasatch Brewery offers award-winning brew that now only comes in cans, or on draft. With its quirky message “Why have just one” having a good time with Utah’s controversial past, Polygamy Porter was no joke when it came to taste and full flavor in a beer.  Try the Evolution amber ale or the Snowbird session IPA, maybe the clever names make them taste even better.

250 Main Street
