I visited with the purpose of trying the Polygamy Porter. The brew was tasty. I asked the barkeep what the ABV level was. He asked me what I meant. After explaining the acronym to him, he told me it was 4%. I then asked what was the highest ABV brew. He explained that all draft beer in Utah is 4%. I was puzzled by the response. I am unfamiliar with Utah alcohol laws but it seemed like this guy either didn't know himself or he didn't feel like giving a full explanation. I'm glad I packed a few bottles of Belgian ale for the trip.

I gave Wasatch a go during my ski trip to Park City. For a brew-pub their food was above average. There were several options and everything we had was good. Service was also above average.
The beer choices were slightly limited on tap due to Utah's state law limiting the alcohol content to 4% ABV if the beer is on tap. The jalapeno cream ale was spicy, the nitro porter was about as smooth tasting as they come and the white IPA was a very pleasant surprise. I'll probably be heading back to this place again before I leave.

perfect location right at the top of main street in park city. tiny cozy feel inside, but apparently there is a bigger open area upstairs. totally uncrowded on a monday afternoon around 1pm. bartender was friendly, but wouldnt do sample tasters for us because of state law (did not have this problem in other pubs). enjoyed the polygamy porter and was intrigued by some of the other selections. food looked good, but we didnt eat. little shop in front with gear and take home bottles of their bigger beers. this is a cool little brewpub worth checking out if you make it to park city. better than average beers, especially the bottled stuff. prices were fair and i will be back here at some point.

Review is from notes taken during a visit in August.
While traveling to Jackson Hole from Salt Lake City, we decided to stop in Park City. Of course I was required to check out the local brews. The Wasatch Brew Pub is located at the top of the hill on Main Street, a perfect location in a neat old mining town.
The brew pub had a very nice bar area which had the brew works in the back ground. The indoor area had numerous tables and a large covered outdoor area with sides that could be dropped during windy and cooler times. The decor was nice, typical brew pub fashion.
We visited during a very busy lunch rush time, so we sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly, had very good beer knowledge and was very tentative to provide service. The beer selection was good with a nice variety of the Wasatch beer on tap along with a few guest beers. There was also a nice bottle selection if you went that route.
The menu appeared to have a nice variety, we choose to have the calamari appetizer which was excellent. The prices were reasonable considering that prices are high in Park City.
Overall we had a good experience and would definitely stop in again when in the area.

Stopped in twice while in Park City, both times at peak hours for dinner; lingered till close to closing time.
A: The atmosphere is probably the strongest thing going for Wasatch Brew Pub. Good seating, a bar area, and an upstairs for the more drink oriented. The outdoor patio was closed at the time I went. Decent brewing atmosphere, but emphasized the restaurant aspect the most (most likely to fit in with the rest of the establishments on Main Street).
Q: The beer was decent but not great. Wasatch produces a wide range of beers which allowed for a variety of different styles to be tried in the same night. The waiter made sure to bring the proper glass or stemware for each style of beer, which while I do not focus too much on glassware I found to be a refreshing change from other brewpubs and bars. They also offered a good selection of Squatters' beer as well. A few brews impressed me yet others felt flat. Overall it was hit or miss.
S: Service was a little slow, however the waiter I had was the same both nights and he knew his beer well which would have increased his tip had it not taken 20 minutes to get the bill at the end of the night.
S: As said above, the addition of other micro brews on tap and in bottles added to the overall value of the place. They even incorporated other breweries' in their recommended pairings.
F: Standard bar fair of burgers, sandwiches, etc. However most menu items do incorporate their beers in some favorable fashion. The food was a little over priced considering the quality. While it was not bad, it was not great either. On the first visit I started with buffalo wings, which is a dish I am highly fond of, and compared to other restaurants wings they left something to be desired. I followed this with the beer battered fish and chips which also seemed lacking. The second visit redeemed the food a little, with the buffalo burger being above average. However overall I would not go here if I was looking for a great meal.
V: Overall for the range of micro-brews I was able to try in one location versus the average food selection and flavor I believe my total at the end of the night was reasonable.
It is worth a visit if you are in the area and want to visit a brewpub, however I would not chose this place if you just want to drink a microbrew with a good meal; there are many other locations on main street that offer better food with a decent selection of micros.
