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.

The ultimate brewery experience to be had in Moab is at Moab Brewery. Located at 686 South Main Street, Moab Brewery is the city’s exclusive microbrewery and it’s open to the public seven days a week.

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

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!

It's hard to match the beauty of Moab. If you're looking for a 5-star stay in a 5-star town do not hesitate to book. This place has it all... cleanliness, comfort (seriously comfortable beds), all the amenities, and amazing hosts! Would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to have the opportunity in the future.
