Hoppers in South Salt Lake is Hoppin

I'm still reeling from a horrible start to the week, but I have found a little reprieve thanks to a local Grill & Brewery in South Salt Lake.

(...by the way, the car problem has escalated.  The radiator blowing caused my engine to be reduced to a paperweight.  $6500+ in repairs...  does anyone know a good Montana lawyer??)

The place I discovered is called Hoppers.  It's in South SLC on Fort Union Blvd, and is absolutely amazing.

They craft their own beers.  I sampled 5, and they were all amazing.  Lights, darks, ales, porters, you can't go wrong.

But it gets better....

The food was absolutely amazing.  I'm riding with a business partner this week, and we ended up sharing a lot of dishes.  They have the BEST macaroni and cheese I have ever had.  Add bacon to it (real bacon.  Real and amazing bacon) and it is pure bliss.

Mac and Cheese.  Cheesy garlic fries.  Oodles and oodles of food.

And I want to come back as quickly as I can.

There are too many good things on the menu to warrant just one trip.  This is now my SLC hangout when I am in town.  The ambiance is stellar, the service is top-notch, and the food is better than almost any other place I have ever been.

...but it gets better...

See the large bottle of beer?  You can get their handcrafted brews to go.  I snagged a couple 25oz bottles to go, with the intention of saving some for when I get home.

...yeah, that didn't happen... I imbibed.  I enjoyed.  I paid the price the next morning.

If you ever find yourself in Salt Lake City, check this place out.  It could easily be a "$20 for a couple" night, or you can go bananas like I did and try a little bit of everything.  Either way, you won't be disappointed.
Please Share it! :)

I did enjoy the drunken tweets, so as soon as I saw that picture I could tell where this tale was heading. I thought there was a alcohol % ceiling in SLC? Guess not, live and learn.
