This is a pretty large, spacious restaurant/
brewpub (more of feel of the latter - shirts and souvenirs available upon entering. Large bar with tables in the front. Clean bathrooms off to the side. There's an outdoor/covered area along the sidewalk.

The beers ranged in size - sample (1.25), glass (2.75), pint (4.50), pitcher (12.00) and growler (14 - 11 for refills).

There were 9 beers (including 4 regular-offerings and 5 seasonal/rotating offerings) available. Some harder-to-find styles, inc. Rauchbier and a black IPA were included. They also make there one root beer and cream soda.

The service was okay - a bit slow - pretty friendly. When asked about the IPA, the waiter didn't really know what an IPA was - odd that.

Food was okay. Wasn't too impressed with my burger - rather small, a bit too well-done (though it did say that the burger was always well-done) and in a pita. Menu had some variety - mainly pub food (and pasta) with a trendy touch - sandwiches, pizza, salads/soups, and a variety of pasta.

Certainly worth going to if you're in SLC!

Red Rock is a pretty need pizza place/brewery/sports bar right in a funky little district of Salt Lake. 14 beers, of which 4 were draft (4%) and 10 were in bottles. I focused on the draft beers, because these 4% beers are the real local flavor in Utah. I thought the quality of the beers was quite decent, with the NE IPA a standout, flavor-wise. I didn't get the pizza, but I got the roasted brussels sprouts with bacon and they were delicious.

Besides having great beer, the food here is great. My wife doesn't drink beer, but always wants to come here just for the food. The pub/restaurant is awesome, and the only part that prevents me from giving it five stars is that parking is limited, and there are a lot of vagrants in the area.

Been here many time. Food and beer is really good, but some of those UT laws can fuck it up.

I've been a long time fan of Redrock. They are one of the most underrated brewers in Utah, IMHO. Excellent food; try the pizzas or the fish and chips, and a small but exceptional set of beers. The Elephino is a great double IPA and the Drioma a solid imperial stout. Their first foray into barrel aging, the Furlong, was outstanding. Overall, highly recommended.

Food is better than the beer. Eat anything on the menu. Any accompanying beer is very good to wash it down

This is an easy place to spot due to some nice signage.

It is a large L shaped space with lots of perimeter seating. The bar is also L shaped and is near the open kitchen with a wood fired pizza oven.

The decor reminds me a bit of what a corporate committee designing a brewpub would come up with. There is some exposed brick and ductwork, a concrete floor, granite bar and a swag station in front. It's not bad, but feels a bit sterile. It was crowded on a Tuesday evening, so they are doing something right.

The menu is large and I thought my choices were pretty tasty.

Service at the bar was a mixed bag. The two tenders seemed a bit overwhelmed and given the size and crowds, I thought they could use one more. One of the guys was nice and jovial, the other was a trifle surly and a bit stressed out. The guy next to me was livid at his poor service, my experience was slightly better. Note as the crowds thinned out, the service really ramped-up which tells me they do need a third bartender…

Beer selection is decent with 10 house drafts and 10 house bottles. The bottles are 500ml and priced fairly at $6.50 and drafts are also well priced at $4.75.

I would revisit, but have found other places in SLC that I like better
