The 10 Best Breweries in Salt Lake City

Gone are the days where Utah’s liquor laws only allowed breweries, brewpubs, and bars to pour draft beers with an alcohol by weight of 3.2% or less. In 2019, the Beehive state introduced a new law increasing that percentage to 5% ABV (alcohol by volume), to the joy of craft brewers and craft beer drinkers alike! It’s been Salt Lake City, in particular, that has taken to the new laws with gusto. With more and more nano- and microbreweries popping up around town, Salt Lake City has become the craft beer destination in Utah.

Whether you’re visiting Salt Lake City for the renowned ski slopes, the incomparable National Parks, or the scenic and bustling downtown, an incredible craft brewery will be nearby. You can stop into one for a couple rounds of draft beer or grab a six pack or two of their higher ABV creations to take home. Check out the list of Salt Lake City’s best breweries to learn more about the must visits!
