It all began with a business trip to the Northwest. Jeff Polychronis and Peter Cole, business partners long before Squatters Pub Brewery came to be. They had frequented brew pubs in the Northwest and noticed that it was the place to be for a lot of the locals.
With that in mind, they came back to Utah to and started the hunt for the perfect location for their new venture as business partners.
Squatters Pub Brewery opened on September 5, 1989. It was a welcome site in Salt Lake City. They ran out of beer and had to buy some from the only other brewery in Utah, Wasatch Brew Pub.
There are many stories to tell about Squatters Pub Brewery, Jeff and Peter and all of the wonderful people who have worked here, dined here and enjoyed a craft beer at our bar.
To celebrate the 25 years in business we are having the 25 Days of Squatters!
Thank you for your love and support! Here's to 25 more years of brewing Damn Fine Beers!
American Craft Beer Week in Utah!
Craft brewing has grown with amazing speed in recent years, representing an ever-increasing portion of the country’s overall beer consumption. The American palette has matured, demanding high quality, complex brews.
American Craft Beer Week is a celebration of this shift in the industry, as well as a chance for us to further explore our own passion!
This year, Squatters and Wasatch breweries have taken Craft Beer Week to the next level and have planned some truly unique and exciting events to celebrate the industry and offer opportunities to experience it in brand new ways.
These events are designed to offer attendees a new perspective on craft brewing- from tours of the Utah Brewer’s Co-Op, to intimate beer classes with our brewmaster and a one-of-a-kind beer and cheese party- each event offers a fresh take on the craft industry!
The schedule below (via link) provides information on the events throughout the week, including price, location and description, but for more information or to sign up please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 801.328.2329 x249. Cheers!

The words that describe Great American Beer Festival are plentiful. A few that readily come to mind for us are exciting, nerve racking and a humbling experience.
When people come up to the booth and say that they love our beers; some say they have had a great experience at our pub, it leaves an impression. It is that moment that makes it all worth it. The years of hard work and dedication payoff with each sip that someone takes and the enjoyment of that moment.
The nerve racking part is the medals ceremony. There were plenty of fingers crossed, toes crossed and even eyes crossed while waiting for our brewery names to be announced.
The good news is that our breweries did get called. Squatters Craft Beers won a Silver Medal for the Fifth Element in the Belgian-Style Lambic or Sour Ale. Wasatch Beers won a Silver for the White Label in the Belgian-Style Witbier.
The Colorado Craft Beer Show sat down with one of the founders of Squatters and Wasatch, Peter Cole and Greg Schirf respectfully discussed distributing in Colorado, the Great American Beer Festival and the friendships that have evolved over the years. The laughter that ensues between Greg and Peter can attest to that friendship.
Even our great neighbors will be able to enjoy a little piece of Utah…we are excited to announce that our beers are now distributed in Colorado.
