The A. Fisher Brewing Co. "Re-opens" This Weekend

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last year, we here in Utah's craft beer community have been waiting patiently for the resurrection of one of Utah's most iconic breweries from the 19th and 20th Centuries, the A. Fisher Brewing Co. Originally founded in 1886 by German immigrant Albert Fisher, the Fisher Brewing Co. operated in SLC for 76 years - 80 if you count the years it operated as Lucky Lager Brewing. This gives Fisher the honor of being Utah's longest lived brewery ever. Even more impressive it managed to survive the prohibition dark ages from 1920 - 1933.

This Saturday begins a new chapter in Fisher's life as the brewery returns after a 57 year drought. Look for a wider array of beers than was previously available from the old brewery, including Fisher's iconic Lager, which will always be on tap.

The beer begins to flow at 11am on Saturday with various food trucks arriving throughout the day to take care of your noshing needs. Fisher's new place is located at 320 w. 800 s. in Salt Lake City. If you're feeling nostalgic after your stay at the brewery on Saturday, I invite you to visit the old Fisher Mansion - the location of the original brewery (located at 1206 W. 200 S. in Salt Lake City, Utah) and "spill a little" in honor of this happy day.

Stay close, I'll try to have an update for you on what beers will be available this weekend. Cheers to Tom (Albert's descendant), Colby, Steve and Tim for a job well done!

Prost!
