The Moab Brewery 

The Moab Brewery: Always loud, crowded and full of fun friends and good food.

Unlike most people who come to Utah, it took me five years to discover the joys of Moab. Since then, I’ve been back a half-dozen times in the past year. And, every time, there is one thing I always have to do: visit Moab Brewery.

Despite its location in the middle of a scorching desert, the Moab Brewery has the best fish & chips I’ve had this side of the Atlantic. Breaded and deep-fried in beer batter, these flaky fish pieces drizzled with lemon and malt vinegar and surrounded by big, fat fries—make the restaurant a favorite.

I’m not the only one in on this secret: The Moab Brewery is almost always packed—a testament to its tempting food entrees. So, you’ll likely need to put your name on a waitlist for a table and wander around the gift shop or hang outside in the beautiful desert air, grab a gelato from the stand right outside the door or just chat with the 25 other people all waiting for tables. It’s worth the wait.

Since it’s also a microbrewery, there are eight beers brewed on the premises, the most popular being Dead Horse Ale. After rock-climbing on the cliffs of Wall Street or hiking around Arches, kicking back with one of those beers, paired with the jalapeño cornbread or pistachio-crusted chicken, makes for a perfect ending to the day. The fish tacos and Southwestern chicken chipotle wrap are also amazing. The theme inside the brewery is uber-Moab, with bikes and kayaks hanging from the ceiling and TV screens featuring videos from off-road vehicle rentals; it’s always loud, crowded and full of fun friends and good food—which is why I keep returning.
