Moab, UT 84532
Sidle up to this spacious-but-quickly-filled Moab Brewery and take a gander at the crowd around you – rock climbers, hikers, mountain bikers, and just about every other outdoorsy type just back from Arches for the day. Moab Brewery founder Jeff Van Horn started the business in order to "get a strong beer in the state of Utah" and tourists and locals alike have been thanking him every since. If that doesn't impress you, their handcrafted beer selection might. Locals recommend the Derailleur Ale, Black Raven Oatmeal Stout, and the Elephant Hill Hefeweizen. Moab Brewery's food is typical American pub, with generous portions and rib sticking fare like Brew Pub Nachos, Jalapeno Beer Fries, and Texas Pit St. Louis Pork Back Ribs. The place fills very quickly so be sure to arrive early, or be prepared to circle the block looking for a parking spot.
