A random stop. Everything was A-1. Service, brews, food, prices were all good. Very cool building with the brewing operations nicely displayed. Not a big dining area, and it was too hot to try the patio. We had green chili burger and pulled pork poutine,...both delicious and more than we could eat.More

Great beer...great atmosphere; but health violations galore! Dreadlocks employee eating fries under the heat lamp in kitchen...pulling up his shirt and showing other employees his back scratches in the kitchen...drinking an uncovered drink in the kitchen...plus many more...I don't want to write a book!

So good we ate here both nights we were in town! We really enjoyed our meals at Vernal Brewing Company. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They were able to make adjustments to accommodate a gluten free meal. The food was very good. The...atmosphere was very fun and inviting. Very clean. Highly recommend.More

Such a great experience! Our server Myrissa was terrific, friendly and prompt. I had the bacon and onion burger and it was delicious. My husband really enjoyed the local beer, we’d go back!

We stopped here after visiting Dinosaur National Monument and we enjoyed our food; we got chips and salsa and a stacked tostada. The food was cooked well and had great flavor. The beer was a letdown though and my flight was middle of the road...at best. We also didn't have the best service as our server was very slow to come to our table despite it being a quieter afternoon. Given the good reviews overall, I suspect that we just caught them on an off day though as most people seem to have had a good experience. We would probably stop here again for food, but would avoid their beer.More

The servers did a really nice job, were friendly and helpful. The food was a mixed bag. The tacos were excellent. The carbonara (recommended by EVERYONE on staff) was also excellent, but VERY filing on a hot day. The fish and chips...not good at all...(basically fish stix). The quality of the experience really depends on what you order. Choose wisely.More

Went for dinner it’s a nice place I really liked the atmosphere and as we came early it was nice and quiet. The service was great and I like that you can get a taste of a beer before you get a glass so you...can decide if you like it or not. The food was really good I had the salmon salad it was very tasty.More

We had a bit of a mixed experience here. Service was fine, the outside patio was a bit warm but the beer was nice and cold. The food was hit and miss. My beet salad with chicken was very tasty and well prepared. It exceeded...my expectations. My wife's fish and chips were another story. The fries were hot, crisp and tasty but the fish was way overcooked - too brown and dried out. Perhaps just an off night and if we were in Vernal again we would give it another try.More

We were very pleased with the beer, food and service at Vernal Brewery. This is as nice a brewery with food that we’ve ever been to and we’ve been to quite a few in our time. It’s a big, beautiful brewpub.

I visited Vernal Brewing during my vacation in Utah in September. The brewpub is housed in a beautiful glass building with a lovely patio/garden for outdoor dining. Vernal Brewing appears to be a popular spot in town considering that the place was quite busy on...a weeknight. Being my first visit here, I opted for a flight to sample four of their beers. I enjoyed the selections. The staff were courteous and friendly. For a light dinner, I had their French Fries which were spiced with one amazing pepper sauce. Vernal Brewing is a great place for beers, and their patio is just awesome.More

If you are in the middle of nowhere, find a brew pub. this place was exceptional. It is modern, two stories high, with lots of windows. Parking, of course. We invaded with a party of 11. They pulled tables together. The waitress was great. Bar...and kitchen service was quick. Food and beer were good. Order anything.More

This place is OK not great. The first time we went for dinner the waitress was excellent and we got service quickly and the chicken gyro plate was good and the pizza OK. The second time we went, it was busy and we were seated...and ignored for 10 minutes at which time we asked if we could get a waitress to take our order for some beers. After another 10 minutes we asked again, no response. After another 10 minutes we asked again and were told "oh so sorry, your table got skipped by mistake". OK, but what about the three times we asked to at least order a beer!!! After 25 minutes we finally got a beer and we were going to order appetizers and then dinner but opted to order dinner immediately after getting a beer took so long. The other meals were OK but my fish and chips was not very good at all.More

This was our third visit to VBC. The food has a unique twist to the traditional recipe. Always good and the service is friendly. Oh, and the beer is also good. We will back the next time we are in Vernal.
