Bonneville Brewery, Utah’s newest locally-owned-and-operated brewery and restaurant, will celebrate its grand opening this Friday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
The celebration includes free appetizers, giveaways, live music and an all-night complementary shuttle service to and from All Star Bowling & Entertainment.
“Bonneville Brewery’s grand opening is an opportunity for us to celebrate our new restaurant with the public, as well as the expansion of Utah’s small, close-knit brewing community,” said Brad Shepherd, owner of Bonneville Brewery. “The combination of a great facility and experienced team of chefs, brewers and managers offers a unique dining experience.”
Bonneville Brewery completely remodeled the building that formerly housed the bar Tracks. It now offers great detail and unique touches created by Ric Jedrziewski, the interior designer of several well-known establishments, including Stein Erickson Lodge in Park City.
The restaurant boasts two large outdoor patios, a bar made entirely of recycled glass bottles, several large-screen TVs for entertaining, and unique pieces of art that tie into the local history of the area.
The facility’s two levels provide a designated family-friendly downstairs area for dining and an upstairs bar area for guests 21 and older.
The new brewery’s kitchen is led by Executive Chef Joe Davis, who has more than 20 years of national and international cooking experience. Chef Davis’s fresh, made-in-house dishes, like macaroni and cheese balls, chicken pot pie, in-house smoked chicken wings, and a house-cured pastrami burger, take a modern twist on traditional American comfort cuisine.
The restaurant’s brewery, led by Eric Dunlap and Dave Watson, is currently producing eight solid interpretations of classic beer styles and plans to have four additional craft-brewed beers by summer, with flavors ranging from light and hoppy to dark and malty. The restaurant’s drink menu also includes a variety of specialty alcoholic and non-alcoholic, family-friendly beverages, including homemade root beer and cream sodas.
Bonneville Brewery is located at 1641 N. Main Street, Tooele. For more information about Bonneville Brewery, or for additional grand opening details, visit Facebook.com/BonnevilleBrewery.
