One of the best - if not the best - breweries in Utah. Shades constantly comes out with new and interesting twists on their Kveik line of beers and have a solid lineup of other bottled options to boot (Double Trub’l, Cerberus, etc.). Aside from the slightly sketchy alleyway entrance that may seem a bit *shady* to the uninitiated, the taproom has a really nice vibe that seems to evolve as the brewery grows. The staff are also friendly, attentive, and know a lot about their beer. If you’re just passing through Salt Lake and are looking for a drink or have lived here a while but haven’t been yet, definitely check out Shades!

Best brewery in Utah. All other breweries have a watered down taste and mouth feel but all the shades beers are great.

Award winning brewery offering light to dark brews and many shades in between.  We specialize in bold flavors, sour and barrel aged beers.   We've been known for our award winning sessions, but we just took a Gold at the Great American Beer Festival for our Golden Sour Kveik, and we've earned a name for ourselves making some high abv brews and legendary IPAs.

 If you're traveling with a non beer drinker (blasphemy! they probably just haven't tried a Shades Brew!)  we also carry wine and local spirits. 21+.  

Eats are delivered by the Pie Pizzeria, voted Salt Lake's best pizza.  However, if you're in the mood for something else you're welcome to bring it in.  Pat's BBQ, a DDD award winning BBQ place is 2 just doors down and they'll package a take out meal for you.
