Great young feel to this place. Feels like being in a beer friendly state. This is a definite oasis for beer drinkers in Utah.
Beer was... absolutely fantastic. The brewer took the drinking laws of Utah and said "You know what F you, I'm gonna work hard and make some fine brews and bottle some bigger brews to boot!" I find it hard to believe that many other brewers work as hard as they do here. They manage to use their expertise and create awesome beers at 4%. They have a nitro and a cask ale. I can't even say that for most Michigan places. Bravo.
Friendly service that recognized me and my friend after 4 days of continuous patronization (real word?)
Great selection of pretty damned solid brews.
Food was pretty good, but my sandwich didn't live up to the precedent set by other Salt Lake restaurants.
Overall a great place and an absolute must for any BA stranded in Salt Lake.

I used to be a regular here when I was at the U of U. I love this place. GREAT food and chasing tail will always hold a very special place in my heart. I come here every time I go back home.

Visited on my first night of two nights staying in downtown SLC; a much needed rest after about 16 days of camping on and off. We actually arrived here during a Mormon holiday but this place was still open for regular hours and quite busy actually. As far as brewpub beer goes the product was above average with clean and fresh flavors. We had some appetizers which were good. Decor was good and the bar was just huge. They also had a nice setup upstairs with a smaller bar and view of the kitchen. Worth a shot for any craft fan and especially those who are into brewpubs specifically. In a land of limited beer opportunities it was nice to see places like this, BeerHive, Uinta and Epic.

Squatters Pub is a nice airy space with soaring ceilings, exposed brick, wooden beams and posts. There are well worn wooden floor and some nice art work and banners (Oktoberfest Banners when I was there).

The long two section bar is on the right, tables to the left. The tanks are behind the front part of the bar, the open kitchen behind the back part of the bar. There is more seating in back plus they have a nice patio.

I counted 12 regular drafts and 6 rotators. I had a couple of drafts and thought they were solid. Bottle selections have more abv, so keep that in mind if you want a bigger beer.

The food was tasty and the menu is definitely a step-up from normal pub grub. I had some tasty carnitas tacos.

Service was friendly and seemed beer savvy.

I enjoyed my visit and I think most BA s will.

This was stop #4 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. This brewery visit was to have dinner and to try their beers. The place is located in an older section of the downtown area in a storefront setting. The restored building is very attractive and inviting, and the 2-story interior was also nicely done. We were seated on the second floor, and this place was rocking for a Wednesday evening.

Because of serving laws in Utah we could only have two beer samples in front of us at any time, so we shared 4 different small glasses and then ordered a couple of their bottled beers just to get a larger serving. Each of the beers that we had was brewed to style, but none had any exciting characteristics. We rated them overall at slightly above a C grade. The food was very good and outshined the beer.

Our experience here was okay, but when we’re in town again we’ll try other places. Who knows, we may end up back here in the future too.
