Our Story


Although much has changed since the first Squatters beer was poured in 1989, we remain firmly dedicated to our original goal of providing our customers world-class handcrafted beer and food in a warm, friendly environment.

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, had frequented brew pubs and noticed that they seemed to be “the” place to be for a lot of the locals. So after a year-long pub crawl, visiting more than 40 brew pubs throughout the west, and with a swill, a swallow and many nights of appreciating great beer, they decided it was time that Salt Lake had a brew pub of its own. Squatters Pub Brewery opened in downtown Salt Lake City on September 5, 1989.
