About Brew Fest

Imagine a world …

Where the aroma of hops fills the air while the music fills your soul.  Brew-lovers of all types will swap recipes, stories, and harmonious sips of their favorite suds.  This is Utah Brew Fest.  We’re here for that crisp draw of a full-bodied beer, with a rich, toasted, end-of-day flavor.  We’re here for the fizzy aroma of a citrus head snapping in your nose.  We’re here for the smooth finish of a creamy, dark stout.  We’re here for beer!

Utah Brew Fest unites local brewers and brew-drinkers alike to elevate the passions, tastebuds, and possibly the brewing careers of all.
