Fire Damages Wasatch Brewpub

Early Friday morning a fire erupted at the Wasatch Brewpub, damaging restrooms & causing a section of the deck to collapse.  A trash can on the upstairs deck caught fire from oily rags from a remodel project.  Fortunately no one was injured.

There is a lot of water and smoke damage, but the building itself is in good shape. The brewery and brewing equipment were unaffected. Bob Zanetti, the assistant chief at the Park City Fire District, said the fire on the deck burned through the flooring, collapsing an approximately 225-square-foot section of the deck, falling into the interior below. There is "significant damage in there," Zanetti said.

Owner Greg Schirf says, he hopes to Wasatch reopened by the end of the week.

No. There will be no smoke beers made this week. But if I know Matt Beamer, Wasatch's Head Brewer. That little hamster wheel in his head is already turning with ideas.

Cheers & Speedy Repairs!
