About Chad

I grew up in Portland, which has a vibrant craft beer culture. I moved to Salt Lake City about 5 years ago and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the craft beer scene here, contrary to popular belief. There's a huge variety of local breweries to choose from. Whether here in the Salt Lake valley or sourced from Moab in southern Utah, I'm excited to show you what great beer Utah has to offer. I watch my calories carefully, so you can rest assured that I really care about my beer!

Great beer, food, and insight.

“You could really feel Chad's passion. His exuberance for the craft of beer making, dedication to creating quality food, and really making it a great experience is phenomenal. I'll definitely be going back.”

Get outside your comfort zone.

“I'm one of those people who orders relatively safe items when going out. I really wanted to step out of my comfort zone and experience more types of beer. I didn't like everything, but Chad's knowledge really helped me know what I liked and disliked about craft beers.”

— Tom (Salt Lake City, UT)
