It's the 24th of July, the day that many in the state of Utah celebrate the pioneers that helped to make Utah what it is today. If you're not of the pioneer culture, a transplant or just looking for a good excuse to enjoy a pint with pie then today is also your lucky day. Pie and Beer Day which sounds like Pioneer Day and coincidentally takes place on the same day (weird huh?). This counter celebration will be taking place in backyards, bars and restaurants all over the state. The biggest one however will be happening in downtown SLC today at the Beer Bar.
Over 8,000 slices of pie from over 20 different restaurants and bakeries and over 20 different beers from local breweries. $25 gets you your pie pass that's paired with select beers. I have the list of Bakeries/Breweries/Pies/Beers so that you can more easily plan your attack.
Beer Bar is located at 161 e. 200 s. This is a fundraiser for the Utah Brewers Guild and is a 21 and older event. Starts at 3pm until 7pm.
