We ate here during our visit to Dinosaur National Monument. The food was delicious, the service was good and atmosphere was pleasant. It’s definitely worth trying if you’re in Vernal.

Comfortable and appealing decor. Well known for its burgers for good reason; they are excellent. As a brewery, they also have a great variety of craft beers. But I could have made a whole meal out of several orders of the awesome fried Brussels sprouts.

Vernal Brewing Company has fairly new premises handily located in the middle of town. It provides excellent craft beers and to comply with State requirements it also serves food. The menu is compact but the items are well cooked and tasty. I enjoyed some excellent...More

The decor is edgy, but everyone in the place comes casually dressed. Inventive, but not weird, if you know what I mean, menu and nicely prepared. I was a bit worried that I was hungry in my hat and hiking boots, but VBC is that...More

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 to give you a great dining experience!
