Default Roosters Brewery in Ogden, UT

I'm going to be in Ogden Utah this week. Does anyone have an opinion of Roosters Brewery there? They also have a location in nearby Layton.

I live in Salt Lake and I've never made it to Roosters, but I have sampled their beers at festivals. IMO they're not bad but not my favorite either. My favorite Utah brewery is Epic in Salt Lake. Give them a try if you get a chance.

Lived in Ogden a few years back. Roosters isn't the best brewery in Utah, but as far as a brew pub goes both food and beer are above average. Definitely worth spending your per diem there.

I stop in now and again. Worth a stop I say, good food and beer both. I havent been to Epic yet but have tried some of their beers at beerfests.

Took the advice on Epic. Didn't make it to the brewery, but found a place nearby that serves it by the 22oz. Nice. Also went to Roosters but was not impressed.

Thanks for the input.

Yeah that was my impression of Roosters too...it wasn't horrible so I'd probably stop in if I was in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

All of Epic's offerings come in bombers, so no 12 or 16 ouncers there. I think there have only been two of their beers that I didn't like...one a gluten-free "beer" and the other was a brown rice ale (tasted a lot like brown rice). Too bad you weren't able to try Elder Brett...I'm pretty sure it's only available in the cold case at the brewery.

I'm actually at the airport right now enjoying a Squatters IIPA called Hop Rising. Not bad at all. I had their IPA last night and liked it. The IIPA is 9% with 75 IBU.

We're actually pretty lucky in Utah with some of our micro breweries. Epic heads that list, imho. Almost everything they make is excellent, although I'm not a fan of Belgian beers which they make a lot of. Some of our silly laws are holding back the true potential of our micros to compete on a national level, but they seem to make very good beers despite some of the handicaps.

Ya the laws here dont allow beer over 3.2 on tap but its ok in bottles, or something like that. Epic hasnt been able to make high alcohol beer for very long, but breweries here are getting lots better very quickly.
Hop Rising isnt bad at all.

Well, 4%abv to be fair. Alcohol content is typically measured in abv.
