Utility Brewing Company
Ruston-based Utility Brewing Co. is all about supporting the community. You can experience that local pride in every pint at Utility, which typically has six to eight of its beers on tap. Its pub ale — the brewpub’s version of an English Bitter — is a great intro beer for guests who may be unfamiliar with the world of craft brewing. It’s one of a handful of traditional beers that are made with care at the seven-barrel facility. Other beers include a red ale, stout, honey saison (made with honey from a local apiary), American Kolsch and IPA. As is the case with many small-scale breweries, Utility also makes limited-run beers. All are available in the tap room, and can be taken home in growlers.
Beer’s not all you’ll get at Utility. As a brewpub, Utility also makes outstanding pizzas and other pub grub that has made the business such a popular dining and drinking spot, that it expanded into the adjoining building, doubling in size not long after opening. Utility also has added a courtyard for outdoor drinking and entertainment.
