I’m a massive fan of the craft scene across the United States.
I love how many breweries are popping up across the US. The craft beer produced at these breweries differs from commercially produced beer.
I was recently visiting Salt Lake City, and I was surprised to discover that there is a bustling craft beer scene.
I made it my mission to see all the breweries in the city and identify the best breweries in Salt Lake City.
Many pints later, this is the result.
