In Old Town, the Wasatch Brew Pub (435.649.0900, wasatchbeers.com) has been a go-to locale for sports aficionados since opening in 1989. The upstairs Brew Pub Cantina features several screens on which to watch games, not to mention Wasatch’s award-winning beers. The 55-inch flat-screen TV at No Name Saloon & Grill (435.649.6667, nonamesaloon.net) brings the action right into this popular Main Street bar. While you’re watching, be sure to sample the killer buffalo burgers.
