Bonneville Brewery, Franck’s, Taqueria 27

Bonneville Brewery formally opens

Utah’s newest locally-owned-and-operated brewery and restaurant, celebrates its grand opening today. Bonneville Brewery completely remodeled the building that formerly housed the bar Tracks and now offers great detail and unique touches created by Ric Jedrziewski, the interior designer of several well-known establishments including Stein Erickson Lodge in Park City. The restaurant boasts two large outdoor patios, a bar made entirely of recycled glass bottles, plenty of large-screen TVs and unique pieces of art showcasing the local history of the area. The facility’s two levels provide a designated family-friendly downstairs area for dining and an upstairs bar area for guests 21 and older.

The kitchen is led by Executive Chef Joe Davis, who has more than 20 years of national and international cooking experience. I recently had the chance to sample several dishes at the invite of the restaurant with several other bloggers. The menu covers many familiar pub-food staples from burgers to wings, with the odd curve ball or twist thrown in for good measure. Thai green curry chicken wings anyone? And check out their liberal play on a cheesesteak in the photos…

Pictured in order: Chicken wings, deep fried mac and cheese balls, fish and chips, chicken pot pie, ‘cheese steak’ and pavlova.

The restaurant’s brewery, led by Eric Dunlap and Dave Watson, is currently producing eight interpretations of classic beer styles and plans to have four additional craft-brewed beers by summer. The restaurant’s drink menu also includes a variety of specialty alcoholic and non-alcoholic, family-friendly beverages, including homemade root beer and cream sodas.

Don’t be surprised if you see this name cropping up more and more. In time, the operation plans to open more locations in Northern Utah plus distribute their beers outside their own locations too.
