Top 5 Local Only Breweries in Moab

Finding time to get out of your daily routine and enjoy a vacation somewhere scenic is important. A getaway is even more inspiring when you know you have your travel sights set on Moab, Utah! Between the stunning scenery and options to dine and shop in style, Moab is a place with a little something for everyone. When you’re looking for local and palate-pleasing stops to enjoy during your time in town, the following are the top 5 local-only breweries in Moab and the surrounding communities that are sure to bring you back time and again!

Monticello Liquor Outlet

Making your way to Moab is often an exercise in landing a place perfect for making the most of outdoor adventure and exploration. For many outdoor enthusiasts, a day of climbing, biking, hiking, or running is best topped off with a cold, refreshing beer or two. While Moab certainly has places to enjoy such an experience, it’s important to note that the state of Utah requires beer sold in taverns or breweries to contain no more than 3.2% alcohol. Restaurants must serve food with beer sales as well. The result of these laws is a culinary scene far less focused on beer than in neighboring states. There tend to also be fewer breweries throughout Utah than travelers might find elsewhere. Still, options to enjoy the brewery-inspired experience aren’t unattainable. If you find yourself in Moab looking for the best brews that the state serves up, they can typically be found in stock at the Monticello Liquor Outlet.

Located at 233 S. Main Street in Monticello, this outlet is just about a 50-minute drive from central Moab and makes for a convenient and comprehensive place to get your hands on the best craft beers that come from across the state. The Monticello Liquor Outlet is open Mondays and Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon until 7:00 pm.

Crosscut Brewery

If you’re willing to travel about an hour and a half from central Moab, you’ll find yourself in Price where Crosscut Brewery is the leading expert on all things locally brewed flavors. This inviting stop is situated within a log-cabin-inspired setting and guests are invited to settle in and enjoy a variety of small plates paired with brewed favorites from across the state. Many of the beers on hand come from Moab Brewery specifically and are best paired with savory options like poutine or onion rings. Located at 150 Hospital Drive, Crosscut Brewery is open Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am until 9:00 pm, Saturdays from 11:00 am until 10:00 pm, and Sundays from noon until 8:00 pm.

Suds Brothers Brewery II

Those who are looking to indulge in a delightful brewery scene with a bit more freedom on content regulations may find it worth their while to make the 1.5-hour drive across the border to Fruita, Colorado, and spend some quality time at Suds Brothers Brewery II. Situated at 127 E. Aspen Avenue, Suds Brothers Brewery II is open Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am until 9:00 pm with extended hours until 10:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. They’re open on Sunday from 11:00 am until 8:00 pm. Suds Brothers Brewery II serves up everything from pale ales and lagers to stouts and craft beer varieties that are sure to inspire. Pair your beverage selection with fish and chips or a bacon blue cheeseburger and your tastebuds will surely thank you!

Copper Club Brewing Company

Not far from Suds Brothers Brewery II in Fruita, visitors with a passion for all things craft beer will find another place to discover in the form of Copper Club Brewing Company. Located at 153 N. Mulberry Street, Copper Club Brewing Company specializes unique flavor options paired with a traditional tap. While you’re here, take time to enjoy a game of darts and live musical performance which are on most nights of the week. Copper Club Brewing Company is open Monday through Thursday from 2:00 pm until 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday from noon until 11:00 pm, and Sundays from noon until 8:00 pm.

This is the most clean Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. The house is extremely stunning and cozy. It’s so we’ll cared for and clean that the sheets smelled like Softener. The amount of detail in that house has is something to really appreciate. The movie theater is wonderful alongside with the pool. Oh! And it’s fully stocked with everything you need . This house was one of the best. Looking forward to stay here again in the future. Everything was smooth and communication with the host was great 10/10

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the cleanliness of this unit! I have never been in a rental cleaner than this! Not one stray hair or fuzzball could be found. This rental has anything and everything you need! The kitchen is fully equipped with any small appliance you would need, a multitude of cooking spices, oils and nonstick spray. Aluminum foil , sandwich bags, sharpies and batteries were even available! The beds, couch and furnishings were comfortable and felt great after our long days exploring the area. Even the 2 foldaway beds were a hit with a couple of our teenagers. In the garage we were happy to have available a bike repair stand and multiple bike tools, including a standing pump and wrenches. Also available in the garage was a giant Jenga set and a cornhole set that our teenagers had a ball with having nightly tournaments. It’s perfectly located in my opinion. It’s a quick bike ride or drive to town and to area attractions. We were primarily there for mountain biking, but also visited Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. We also took a rafting trip on the Colorado River. This was the best trip we’ve had in years and that is mostly due to this rental! We had no issues and no complaints! Great job hosts! You are truly making vacation dreams come true!

Stress free vacation! All the family was able to be together in one location. Normally we have a caravan of travel trailers where everyone goes and hides to get out of the heat. Being able to eat together, watch movies together and get on the razors and ride right to the trails made all the difference. My grandkids didn't want to leave, neither did my nieces. They loved the pool and bike ride to the yogurt shop. Perfect location, tons of parking for several trailers, excellent customer service and very clean. I would stay a hundred times more!

We booked this house to come together for my daughters 8th birthday celebration at the lake, and wow were we impressed! Beautiful home, very modern minimalist style. All amenities provided! No need to bring toiletries they have the best products! The kitchen is fully stocked, you’ll have enough dishes for 20 plus! Exceptionally clean! The showers are like a spa, and they have soft water so, you come out with super soft skin. The backyard is an oasis, for all ages. The kids and adults can all enjoy at the same time! You will love this place. It’s close to the lake and the AC is always at the perfect temp! We will be booking this palace in the future for sure!!!!

This property was everything it was described as. Spacious, clean, great spaces for gathering. We stayed 3 nights here with 21 people and we had a blast. About a ten minute drive from the “downtown” area of lake Haveasu. I couldn’t be more pleased with the property. Overall it made our trip and we had a wonderful time. Would absolutely return!

We all loved our visit to Moab. It was comforting to come back to this place after a day in the elements, feeling like we were luxuriating after working out hard. This place is well stocked. From the kitchen appliances, cookware and even condiments to the linens and bathroom soaps and lotions, we kept commenting that this was the best stocked vacation rental any of us had experienced. Having the garage to store our bikes and other gear made it easy to come and go. The team we texted with about questions or reports about problems were always responsive and accommodating. We recommend this place without question.

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks
