What’s brewing and Distilling?
The Moab Brewery was established in 1996, long before the craft brewing industry was rocking and rolling! For 24 years now, the Moab Brewery has been a leader in the craft brewery industry. They offer many award-winning beers and have distributed across the nation. In 2017, Moab Brewery realized that their knowledge of craft beer gave them the ability to perfect craft spirits. Moab Distillery now offers Class 5 Vodka, Spot On Gin, Tight Squeeze Gin, and Rayo Blue Agave. They have many other creative spirits coming out in the future.
As the only microbrewery in town, they offer eight award-winning beers on tap, ranging from an array of light to dark to satisfy everyone’s palate. They also offer a great lineup of full-strength beer available from the bar.
Their FMU, Moab Pale, Johnny B’s IPA, Class 5 Vodka, and Spot On Gin are available in all Utah state liquor stores, or you can purchase their beer and spirits to go from their Package Agency.
The 325-seat, kid-friendly restaurant is the go-to place for tourists. They open daily at 11:30am for lunch and dinner. You can find all of their award-winning beers and spirits on their menu.
