Kiitos x Vuture Food
Get down to this fantastic SLC brewery today (April 22nd) for a unique food truck opportunity. LA based Vuture Food (pictured above) and Kiitos Brewing are teaming up for this one day unique event. I’m a big fan of the trend in meat-free dining, especially when it looks this good. Here’s the full info:
We are coming from Los Angeles to feed you guys some of the best Vegan Comfort Food around.
Our staff will be wearing gloves and face masks and everything will be made in to go containers. No Pre-Orders Available. We will be accepting CC or exact change only.
All of our items contain soy. We are entirely Nut Free. All of our loaded fries are made with GF ingredients however they are fried in the same fryer as our patties which contain wheat. Our patties are made from a combination of soy, wheat, and peas.
RoHa Brewing grand re-opning
In more brewery news, tomorrow (April 23rd) sees the grand re-opening of RoHa after a remodel that looks set to increase the capacity of the bar area. Here’s the full info from the brewery:
Without further ado, the Grand Re-Opening of our taproom space will be Friday, April 23rd from 12-10pm. With the hard work of RMS Construction and the removal of some walls, what used to be a small taproom with about fifteen bar stools will now boast a large seating area on the ride-hand side with bar tables, a lounge area in the corner, and featured art from local artists.
Come on down and celebrate our journey with us and be one of the first to sit in our new space! We’ll have new releases, Torito’s Tacos on site serving up fresh eats, and the owners will be around drinking pints.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through this renovation. There was (A LOT) of dust and loud bangs, but that didn’t stop you from stopping by and drinking great beer. We look forward to celebrating this project with all of you!

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
