So apparently there’s this guy Dell Vance who really likes Utah and beer. I think we’re soul mates. He opened the Beerhive Pub on 128 South Main Street in Downtown to share his favorite things with me.
Okay, maybe it’s not all for me, but I’m going to pretend it is. I love this little place. The upstairs is comfortable and clean. There’s also a nice mix of browns, reds and light in the decor. Seriously, a bar where you can see the people around you…amazing.
I visited the Beerhive with Patrick, Ava and Erin last weekend and it was a vast improvement over our first bar of choice the Green Pig. The vibe at the Beerhive is comfortable. It manages to feel like a bar where it’s okay for the ladies to hang out by themselves without getting creepy comments and/or stares from the men who are also hanging out by themselves.
The beer menu is impressive with over 100 choices. I saw lots of beers I wanted to try, but in efforts to pay off my credit card I stuck with the cheap, local, on-tap brews and had some Uinta Cutthroat.
We met some of Patrick’s friends who were really cool and tried lots of tasty beers. All in all it made for a great night with an adorable server to boot.
Also I hear tell the food menu comes from Vienna Bistro and is made of Austrian goodness by their chef Frody Volgger so next time I head to the ‘hive I’ll have to try out some wiener schnitzel.
