Wasatch Brewpub in Park City has what I call an "old school" brewpub feel to it - it reminds you of the way brewpubs were 10-12 years ago when brewpubs started to spread. Why? The atmosphere, traditional pub fare, brewpub humor shirts (We Drink Our Share and Sell the Rest! ... Good for what Ales you!).
Given the 3.2% restrictions, Wasatch has come up with some amazing results. Their Hefe-weizen, available year-round, is IMO the best in Utah. Great bananna clove, very drinkable, and simply delicious sans lemon. Other ales such as Polygamy Porter and Superior Ale are worth venturing into, but my bet is you'll stick with their stellar Hefe.
Food quality is "good." No complaints, many items clearly above par. Pizzas have a very, very fresh homemade dough crust that is fantastic! Cuisine is slanted towards fish and other meats, but the veggie folks can find a few items too.
Selection of beer is usually 5-6 regular taps with 1-2 guest taps and/or seasonals (total 1-2). They usually offer an ale on cask as well. Oh, I almost forgot to mention - beer is served in cool 20oz. dimpled mugs. Very few places do this any longer. Nothing like a porter in a dimpled mug!
Value is good reasonable on the whole, but VERY reasonable if you consider the context of pricey Park City.

I came here on a ski trip to Park City and looked into a decent brew pub for lunch. Found it here.
This place has a great decor and is surrounded by its large vats of sweet beer! The wait staff are not that experienced with their own beer, but the food was good.
I chose to have the cask-conditioned ale on tap and finished the night with a polygamy porter (of which I bought a glass for)! Great beer, better to have it on draught rather than from a bottle. Not sure, but, before you come to Utah, look into the state's alcohol laws - very very stringent.
Would be a decent place to visit, there are better brew pubs in Park City, but this was a good experience nonetheless.

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 hadn't been to Park City for 12 years and the Wasatch is still there and it's now one of the elder statesmen of Main Street eating establishments. Due to Utah's rather screwy liquor laws, the Wasatch has three liquor licenses. The pub serves the homebrew. The restaurant sells beer *and* liquor, but only with food. Upstairs is the Cantina which has that whole member thing that just makes my head hurt.
I had the enchiladas on my first trip in with a 1st Amendment Lager on the side. (Or was that the other way around?) The enchiladas were very good. I like them flavorful with the opportunity to add my own heat. The lager was tasty, but got lost next to the food. (That was my choice, no fault of the beer.)
Next time in I had a Chasing Tail in the pub. Checked out the rest of Main Street and returned for a Polygamy Porter and some wings. The Porter was excellent and the wings were baked rather than fried and quite delicious. Once again, I added my own heat. My cousin who ate with me had the calamari which tasted just like they had opened a fresh bag of Sysco frozen calamari with way too much dill. Still, the "spicy" mayo with it was good.
To sum up, it's good fresh beer. They take it seriously. The food prices are reasonable and if you check out the other menus on Main Street, the Wasatch looks downright cheap.

Decided to hit up this brew pub in Park City, about 30 minutes east of Salt Lake. Located at the top of the hill on picturesque Main Street. It was a beautiful, sunny 80 degree day (and I found out that 80 degrees out west is a lot different than 80 degrees on the east coast...where's the humidity?!), so I had lunch outside.
Good amount of seating inside. The brewing equipment is easily seen right through the large glass front window. Outside patio is nice, with umbrellas over all the tables. Didn't get much of a chance to check out the bar area, but it looked as if it could seat about 15. Just a guess.
Our server, in addition to being an attractive 20-something young lady, was extremely friendly, serviceable, and knowledgeable about both their food and beers. Check plus.
The food was typical pub grub, though they did have some more interesting choices. I had a pastrami reuben on rye. Loaded with pastrami and horseradish, it was quite tasty.
I sampled two of their beers...they have one offering on cask, so of course I bit on that first, a hoppy pale ale they call Hopalicious. Pretty good stuff, hoppy as advertisted, and quite herbal. Had the Polygamy Porter from the tap for dessert, which was quite nice as well.
If I ever get back to Park City I would return here, though I'd like to see more of what the Salt Lake City area has to offer. Apparently it isn't the barren beer wasteland that I had once thought it was. I'm sure this brewpub does much better in the winter as well. The restaurant had more than an average amount of people, but it was a warm holiday weekend. Don't expect crowds in the summer, but my guess is this gets crowded in the winter months, as Park City is primarily a ski resort town.
Small gift shop here as well, where I picked up a T-shirt and a cool mug. Sweet.
