In post-prohibition Utah, there had not been a brewery since the original Fisher Brewing Co. closed in the 1960s. That is, until Greg Schirf came to the Beehive State. It’s hard to believe that it has been 35 years since founder Greg Schirf opened Wasatch Brewery in Park City. Yep, in 1986 Greg opened the doors to Wasatch Brewery, the first post-prohibition brewery to open in Utah, with the promise to “drink our share and sell the rest.” Promise kept.
On October 22, 2021 Wasatch Brewery turns 35 years old and celebrates with throwback prices for draft beers ($3.50 for 12 ounce drafts) and giveaways co-sponsored by Ski Utah at the Wasatch Brew Pubs in Park City and Salt Lake City.
But even as Greg Schirf and his gang look back fondly on the past 35 years, they’re not sitting still. Coming in the Spring of 2022, according to the brewers at Wasatch, is the Top of Main Rotating Series (referring to the top of Main Street in Park City, where the Wasatch Brew Pub is located). And their first new brew in the new series will be a Raspberry Ale.
Congratulations to Greg Schirf and his gang on 35 years of misbehaving and supplying us all with bodacious brews. Here’s to 35 more sudsy years!
