Utara Brewing Co

Utara Brewing Co

In the quaint, ever-bustling town of Sandpoint, Idaho, Utara Brewing Co. unfurls its distinct brand of hospitality, wrapping patrons in a cozy blanket of Anglo-Indian cuisine and meticulously handcrafted beer—because nothing screams “authenticity” quite like a British-style brew-pub nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. They’re daringly bringing the flavors of the north (Sanskrit: “Utara”) to a place where one might least expect to stumble upon a fusion of traditional Indian food and craft beer​ (Utara Brewing Company and Curry House)​.

The brewery, which could be confused for a hipster’s culinary dream, operates on a “small batch, seven-barrel system,” ensuring each brew is as unique as the last. Their core lineup includes gems like the “Long Beach Light Lager” for those who fancy a beer that practically drinks itself, and the “Cannabis Terpene Hazy IPA,” a beer that screams “I’m edgy” without the legal ramifications or psychoactive effects​ (Utara Brewing Company and Curry House)​. They certainly didn’t miss the chance to infuse local flavors into their drinks, as seen in their “Huckleberry Hard Seltzer,” because it’s Idaho, and huckleberries are mandatory​ (Utara Brewing Company and Curry House)​.

The food menu reads like a crash course in “How to make your taste buds dance 101,” with offerings ranging from “Papadums” for the light-hearted to a “Curry Sampler” for those who refuse to make decisions. The kitchen is a beacon for the indecisive and dietary restrictions, offering vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options because no one should be left behind in this culinary expedition. However, in a twist of fate that shocks absolutely no one, the small kitchen size might mean your food arrives in “just a moment” …plus a few more moments, especially during peak times​ (Utara Brewing Company and Curry House)​.

Whether you’re there to pet dogs on the patio (yes, they’re that kind of establishment) or to debate the merits of IPA bitterness levels, Utara Brewing Co. offers a slice of the globe right in Sandpoint’s backyard. Open with the promise of friendliness, but perhaps a side of wait times, it’s a place where every day is a good day to expand your palate. So, if you ever find yourself in Sandpoint, do stop by at Utara Brewing Co. at 214 Pine Street. They’re open Sunday to Thursday from 3 pm to 8 pm and Friday to Saturday from 3 pm to 9 pm, ready to serve up an “extraordinary experience”​ (Utara Brewing Company and Curry House)​. Just remember, while the world might not need another hazy IPA, Utara’s version might just be the exception to the rule.
