Roosters @ 15
Open in Ogden since 1995, Roosters Brewing Company is celebrating its 15th anniversary with special pricing, events and unique anniversary beers. Roosters’ owner Kym Buttschardt said, “Fifteen years is a reflective milestone. It has been an incredible experience to be a part of a blossoming and vibrant downtown. We are taking time to pause, look back and see where we started and where we are now. We have put a lot of Roosters love into this community and our 15-year campaign. We hope that friends of Roosters will take advantage of the smokin’ deals, special events and tokens of our appreciation.” Included in the anniversary celebration is a “Dine for 2 for $15” menu, a limited 15-year anniversary collectible pint glass for $5, microbrews for $2.50 and two anniversary brews: 15 Marzen and Flashback Gold. Additional anniversary events include the Ogden Marathon Pasta Party on May 14 and the Roosters Big Anniversary Bash on June 15. 801-627-6171, RoostersBrewingCo.com.
