Vino Volo Ale House: Salt Lake City

If I was to choose one thing that really make me proud to be part of Utah's beer culture; it's the sense of community the breweries share with one and other. This sense of community has been made a reality for consumers as Squatters opens it's newest venture, the Vino Volo Ale House.

Vino Volo has been around for quite a few years in a dozen states, but they've primarily specialized in wine with a few beer options. This new concept in Salt Lake City's International Airport brings Utah's craft beers into the forefront and features beers from Squatters, Wasatch, Uinta, Hoppers, Moab, Bohemian, RedRock, Desert Edge and Roosters.  

Located at Terminal 2 on Concourse D; the new space at the airport is a combination of a cozy adult lounge, restaurant, and boutique beer/wine shop that offers themed tasting flights of two or three glasses. Sadly, no bottles can be purchased to take with you.

If your on your way out of town or are visiting it's a great one stop shop to get a good feel of what Utah's Craft brewers have to offer. 

Cheers!

Shouldn't they be able to have high-gravity beer on tap?

seems like they left a few of them out...

I remember someone saying that the Airport can serve high-abv beer.

I'm pretty sure Desert Edge is also being served.

Yes! Desert Edge. My apologies to D.E. It's been corrected.

Great stuff.

Nice idea, but not representing fully, especially if you can purchase bottles to go...maybe it's a license issue. Anybody know why some breweries are not included?

They can't sell beer or wine to go. That would be nice but not allowed in Utah.
