It’s commonly understood that mountain biking and beer go hand-in-hand. Who doesn’t love an ice-cold one after a mountain bike ride in the summer sun? Summer weather in Park City can be toasty too; usually sunny and in the 80’s. So cooling down and refueling after a long ride is an absolute must! There are quite a few Park City restaurants and breweries that are conveniently located at trailheads all over town. So we thought it only right to pick out a couple of our favorites and list out even more for you to pick and choose.

Silver Star Cafe

Back to Top of List

Nestled in at the bottom of the popular Armstrong trailhead in the Silver Star area, Silver Star Café offers outdoor seating with a mountain view, plenty of local brews, and live music throughout the week. Menu items include treats like Reuben sandwiches, hearth-fired pizzas, and fresh salads for lunch, and buttermilk-fired chicken, wild mushroom stroganoff, and bavette steak for dinner. Which is also located next to Silver Star Ski and Sport where you can rent and/or find anything you will need for your ride.

Deer Valley Grocery Café

Back to Top of List

A classic Park City lunch spot, Deer Valley Grocery Café overlooks Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park pond and is easy to access from many of the lower Deer Valley mountain bike trails. With outdoor seating, amazing mountain views, and a menu with a wide variety of options (beer, wine, and cocktails, too!), there is no doubt that everyone in your biker gang will enjoy both the experience and the food. Deer Valley Grocery Café is a great choice for any meal and there are plenty of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options.

Wasatch Brew Pub

Back to Top of List

Sitting pretty at the top of Park City’s Historic Main Street is Utah’s OLDEST brew pub, Wasatch Brewery. If you’re riding anything in and around Daly Canyon (Moosehouse, Mother Urban, Grave Digger, etc.) then Wasatch Brewery makes for an easy stop as it’s literally at the bottom of all these trails. As with any fine distributor of cold ales, you’ll find a full grill with burgers, nachos, sandwiches, fresh salads, vegan options, and more.  On tap, some of our favorites are the Last One Down lager (order one for your buddy who is lagging) or the Ghost Rider IPA.

El Chubasco

Back to Top of List

What good is a food blog highlighting some of the best places to eat in Park City that doesn’t mention El Chubasco? This fine Mexican establishment serves up all the hits: sizzling fajitas, massive burritos, tacos for days, enchiladas, and more. Aside from the authentic Mexican food, the real secret to El Chubasco is their wide assortment of salsas. From your go-to Pico De Gallo to hotter options like Salsa Habanero, they offer 15 incredible options to douse your food in. And as far as beverages, Horchata and cervezas like Modello and Corona are ready to quench your thirst. Do yourself a favor and hit El Chubasco after your ride.

If you’re riding in the Kimball Junction area (Glenwild trails, Flying Dog, Utah Olympic Park) or maybe you’re craving a slice of pizza, then hit up Maxwells East Coast Eatery. These guys serve up massive Fat Kid pizzas, pizza by the slice, wings, salads, and more. And there is a full bar with a huge beer selection and cocktails. The vibe is relaxed, dark, and cool; making it a nice spot to cool down after a hot bike ride, but you can also sit outside if you want some more sun. This establishment is in the New Park development and is adjacent to shops and the Swaner Nature Preserve, making it a great spot for families. This is another must for biking.

Offset Bier

Back to Top of List

Offset Bier is a great spot to unwind after a long ride. Located near the Rail and Poison Creek trails on Ironhorse Drive, your ride back to your car or hotel might just bring you right by their brewery. They even sponsor local mountain bike group rides in the summer and ski tour groups at Park City Mountain in the winter! With beer made right here in Park City, a laid back vibe, and indoor and outdoor seating—Offset is a spot where you'll mingle with likeminded riders and locals. With beers on tap and cans to go, it's worth a stop even if you only have a few minutes!
