Thousands ate, drank and voted on Saturday during Salt Lake City’s third annual Food Truck and Brewery Battle. The all-ages bash featured 18 food trucks, 12 brewers and music.
It was sponsored by The Gateway, The Food Truck League, U-92 Radio and The Salt Lake Tribune.
Throughout the night, attendees voted by text for their favorites, with Fry Me to the Moon and Bohemian Brewery winning People’s Choice Awards. Fry Me to the Moon was last year’s People’s Choice, too, bringing back-to-back wins.
Sgt. Pepper’s Fat Burrito earned Best New Food Truck, an award selected by The Tribune. Sgt. Pepper’s, where the food is named for favorite Beatles songs, impressed judges with its “hefty” jalapeno blackberry burrito filled with tender chicken and flavors that were “balanced with sweet and heat.”
Toasted Barrel Brewery, which specializes in fruity, bright sour beers, earned The Tribune’s Best New Brewery Award. Judges gave high marks to its black currant kettle sour. With a purple hue and tartness it was a refreshing beverage on a warm August night.
