Vernal Brewing Company won the 2013 Most Outstanding Project from Utah Construction and Design magazine in the Private, Under $10M category.* It was designed to be an icon for the owners to promote their new brewery and to create a new dining venue within the city of Vernal. **SLUG Magazine described the experience of visiting the brewery by writing, “I was surprised by the massive slate, glass and copper façade of the town’s brand-new brewpub… The place feels very un-Vernal.” (p. 23). The project totals 9,000 sf, accommodating brewing facilities, restaurant, bar/tasting room and office space. The two-story structure takes advantage of the site’s main feature, views to west and south. The restaurant portion is shaded with a significant roof canopy, while outdoor seating is available year round as the patio is covered with an operable roof device.
