I was genuinely surprised by these guys. Being a serious beer freak, I always approach brewpubs (and especially those in perfect locations) with a certain amount of doubt, but they are producing some damn good beers. The Heffe and stout were particularly good, but the Peach Sour, which they had just tapped, was OUTSTANDING! It was amazingly balanced; long on the local peaches and quite restrained in it's sourness. (***for you beer freaks out there, it's a lacto sour, but much less acetic than similar styles in the Pacific Northwest. You can easily drink several of these without annoying at the vitals of your digestive system).

Then there's the food. Again, I was surprised. One can reasonably expect to pay 25-40% more for reasonably sized meals anywhere near the parks in Utah, but the portions here were HUGE! I had a Reuben with the overall heft of large double cheeseburger. After a day of hiking, their food is perfect.

One benchmark I was particularly impressed with was their onion rings. I know they're a fairly common item on a lot of menus, but they are rarely done with any real care. The ones here were exceptional! Oh, one other highlight: THEY ACTUALLY SERVED POUTINE!!!!! For aficionados, this is a rare treat. They're hard to find anywhere in the southwest, even here in Austin!

So, in a nutshell; this place is damn good! The food, the beer and the staff are all way better than you might expect from an establishment in such a tourist-driven area.

My wife and I had some drinks and an appetizer here one early evening after exiting the park. I overheard the one waiter say they changed Owner and Brewmaster about a year ago, so if you visited year ago the beer may be different now.

Inside they've got restaurant seating and a bar, and then a nice outdoor patio area with a lot of seating. We sat outside in the nice evening breeze, with spectacular views of the canyon walls and the Virgin River right behind the brewpub.

They had 6 beers available:
Redemption - west coast pale ale
Ascender Hefeweizen
Delusion Ale - ESB
Red Altar - hoppy red ale
Jamaican Style Lager - light lager
Conviction Stout

So not a huge selection, but I had a flight of 6 oz tasters of the Redemption, Delusion, Red Altar, and Jamaican, and then a pint of the Redemption. All were solid, but nothing to write home about.

We just ordered an order of the chimichurri fries, which were good. Waiter was friendly and checked back often. Option for non-beer drinkers was Red or White house wine.
