Travelers' Choice
Nestled in downtown Vernal, Utah within the heart of Uintah County is a craft beer brewery and gastropub that is an icon of the area. In addition to brewing and canning quality craft beers to be sold in-house and distributed across Uintah County and the Salt Lake Valley, we host a restaurant/gastropub with dining options ranging from comfort food and appetizers to local favorites. Exceptional food, craft beer and a place to enjoy it with friends and family is something that owner, Ginger Bowden, has always gravitated towards. This love fueled Ginger's passion and desire to create a unique experience for the Uintah Basin. Welcome to the Vernal Brewing Company. We're happy to serve you and strive

Just a great experience, from the time I was greeted by the hostess to their friendly farewells as I left. The young hostess respectfully confirmed my golden retriever was, in fact, a service dog, and promptly seated us at the nearest booth. Small thing, I...know, but walking is often painful, and whether consciously or intuitively done, her kindness was appreciated. Miss Paige, my server, then proceeded to provide 5 star service, perfectly attentive without being intrusive. An awesome young lady who did an awesome job! The meal was enough to make this old cripple do a fat man happy dance--so overall, couldnt have been better! Give these folks a try--they're doing a great job!More

The restaurant is modern, inviting and very clean. Jamie was our server and was very attentive. I ordered the cheesesteak with fries and my bf ordered the brat burger with Brussel sprouts. While waiting for our meal Jamie made sure our drinks were not empty....Both are entrees were delicious and hot. I’m glad my boyfriend ordered the Brussel sprouts, I’m happy he shared! In our future travels will include having a meal here.More

We asked about the Navajo Taco -- is it big enough for two people? Waitress unhesitatingly said yes. Didn't try to sell us more than we wanted. When she brought it out, it was definitely big -- and she brought an extra plate, even cut...it in half for us! Good beer too.More

Once we knew we would be spending some time in Vernal I knew I wanted to go to Vernal Brewing, and we were not disappointed. We finished our visit to the natural history museum right across the street and popped in for an early dinner...and drinks. Since it was nearing the end of our trip, we wanted to make sure we didn't order to much food, so we had the stacked tostada and 1/2 portions of the Caesar salad and mac and cheese with pork. And we still had more than enough food for our lunch and a snack the next day. We had three different beers, the lager, red ale, and .50 caliber, and all were excellent. Our server was very helpful and attentive as well. The interior is very spacious and offered plenty of distancing. We were very pleased with Vernal Brewing.More

A totally delightful evening! Outstanding food! A highlight was the tomato bisque made using the tomatoes grown in raised beds around the patio. Yes, outdoor seating with heaters. Great selection of draft beers too. Thank you, Paige, for your prompt and efficient service and stellar...suggestions!More

Best meal and service ever in Vernal and I’ve been visiting for 50+ years … shout out to wait-angel Paige for guiding us through all the local-grown delights and local-brewed options. Lots of choices for every palate.

Stopped here for dinner after a day at Dinosaur National Monument. Bright, clean, and casual environment. Lots of options on the menu to choose from--both the food and the beer! Highly recommend the fish tacos. Might even be the best ever! Perfectly cooked salmon with...delicious seasonings (without overdoing it)! Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. Overall, a really great experience! Will definitely stop here again when in the area!More

Gem of a find after visiting the Dinosaur Naitonal Monument. Great craft beers that should satisfy any pallet. House salad beautiful and amazing--mango dressing superb. Wait staff knowledgable, friendly and very attentive. The first restaurant we have visited during our trip that looked fully staffed...and actually had good food. VBC was busy at 3:00 in afternoon. Be sure and get the cookie for dessert--comes "HOT" in a cast iron skillet. Taking home a 12 pack of their craft beers.More

Modern, bright and clean. There’s so many delicious looking selections on the menu it’s hard to decide. Our server Sean suggested the sausage sandwich. The current choice was an Italian sausage patty on a roll with red sauce, mozzarella cheese and bacon. It was outstanding...along with the onion rings I ordered. Sean was super friendly and attentive. We will be back on our return trip.More
