Salt Lake City Breweries; The Best 3
Utah is well known for its breathtaking landscapes, expansive mountain ranges, and fresh powder. However, one of Utah’s lesser-known but best features is its craft beer scene and selection. Local Utah breweries have been popping up on every corner over the last few years, and frankly, everyone is worth a visit! Whether you’re in town for the weekend, new to the area, or a Utah native, we’d recommend checking out a few breweries in Salt Lake City. To help you choose which ones to try first, we’ve compiled our top 3 favorite Salt Lake City breweries based on their exquisite beer selection, excellent service, and overall good vibes. And because we value our furry friends, all breweries on our top 3 list have dog-friendly patios.
