I stayed at a hotel across the street during a hockey tournament and stimbled it to based on BeerFly.

Agree with the first review; kind of an eclectic mix of beers for about anyone, but not very deep. Pretty much some of the more standard fair with a few local favorites. Frankly, I enjoyed it since I don't see some of this stuff on the front range. I also tried the cask; it was decent - but this time it was a Belgian ale. I think the strange Utah laws about food and alcohol makes it pretty tough to sell beer.

I liked the broken-up space and the rustic wood furnishings) and a few on tap (10). Food price was 12-15 for an entree and quite good.

Well I found out about this place from Johnny Angel. So last night I went over to check it out. Nice reasonable place. They have a few bottles of beer (13) and a few on tap (10). Just about every bottle they have you can get in the State Liquor store, so no big deal. The stuff on tap is the usually Bud, Bud Light stuff, but they have a few from the local micro's, cool. I selected the Cask Wasatch Chocolate Porter (see review). The first pint was exactly what I expected, but the second was cold and looked unfiltered, and had a different scent. Don't really know what happened, but I was dissappointed to say the least. I had the Publick Burger which was not bad. The dinners were in the 15.99 range. I'm really not sure if I will go back again though.
