Fisher Brewing Co Returns To Salt Lake City, UT

From Slug Magazine:

It’s no easy thing, bringing a brewery to life; it’s a whole other ballgame to bring one back from the dead. That’s what is happening now in Salt Lake City—the resurrection of one of Utah’s more legendary pre- and post-Prohibition breweries. The story of the A. Fisher Brewing Company began in 1884 when German immigrant and brewer Albert Fisher moved to Utah and set up shop on 200 South, next to the Jordan River. Now, his descendants are hoping to bring some of his old-world brews to the 21st Century.

To look at the modest space located in the Granary District of Salt Lake City, you wouldn’t think that this is a “Legacy Brewery” until you talk to Fisher’s four partners, whose enthusiasm for their brewery’s history is matched only by their passion for the beer. “It’s been a dream in our family for a long time to reopen the brewery,” says Tom Riemondy, general manager and one of Albert Fisher’s descendants. “I’ve listened to my aunts and uncles tell stories of the original brewery from their youth. Those stories have always stuck with me.”
