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.

I have now been to the Wasatch Brew Pub twice now about a year apart. The first time I was here I went with a group of 4 and and we all enjoyed our meals. I ordered a beer that was a little above average, but two of the others ordered the house Rootbeer, which I tried and was really good. The second time that I was at the Wasatch Brew Pub we ordered two pizzas. Both the pizzas were great and the beer was again a little above average. If I go back to Park City, I will go back, the food is great and the beer is good. one problem is that they do not offer samplers, the reason that I received was that you can not have more then one or two drinks in front of you at one time. The weird thing is that all the other Brew Pubs that I visited in Utah allowed samplers.

i vacationed with my famly in 2006 and stoped in for a few, this place was the highlite of my trip, i spent about four hours and tryed about ten difrent beers. i loved the personilised mugs from ther mug club that sit behind the bar, i also liked the birds eye view of the beer tanks on the left hand side of the bar. this place had a peanut butter porter, that was to die for, i had three glasses and took a growler of this brew back home to new york with me.
if you are visiting park city this place is a must see. i hope to return and get my own "orcasteve" mug, i would also like to bring a few of my beer students with me. this is my second favorit brewery that i have ever visited

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.

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.

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.

Visited here while in Park City. Nice clean looking brewpub with plenty of seats at the bar as well as booths and seating outside. The bar looks into all the brew vats and brewing equipment. They had about 10 or so brews on tap, 4 of which I tried. Most of them were average at best, but their nitro cream ale was outstanding. A large list of food, including the fish and chips which I had. I think it was $12.99 and it was a nice side portion with 4 decent sized pieces of fish plus fries and cole slaw. Very good. The service was quick and the server was fairly knowledable about the beer. Overall a good place. Would probably go there for the food first and maybe the beer second though.

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.

Finally got over to this place. Nice little place on the main drag in Park City. There's a dinning area, bar, and gift shop in the building. There was about 8-9 brew's on tap (had 3 brews). I ordered the pub burger, which was very good, with some potatoe chips, and pickle on the side. The atmosphere was nice, met a couple from GA that were there for some sking. They were acclimating to the higher altitude, they were tired. Nice cozy place, you could see some snow falling out the windows. Would highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

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.
