Boulders on Broaway

Craft beer bar Boulders on Broadway opened 17 years ago and has attracted craft beer enthusiasts to it Tempe location from near and far. Owners Erick and Rochelle Geryol felt a change was needed so they’ve now partnered with Utah’s SaltFire Brewing Company and BoB is now known as SaltFire Brewing Tap House. SaltFire’s owners Ryan Miller and Tim Wilson felt this was a great way to get their beers into the Arizona market and have plans for in state brewing down the road. Regulars and new guests have seen the name change and will see a menu refresh soon. The Geryol’s will stay on to operate the new establishment and it does not affect their other restaurant’s Tempe’s Spokes on Southern and Mesa’s Boulders on Southern.

‘Our regulars have known this transition was in the works and have been so supportive. They’ve even started calling the spot “Salty BOB,” said co-owner Rochelle Geryol. “Even still, it’s been a whirlwind to have it all come together. We can’t wait to show it all off in May.” Although the name has changed the official grand opening happens on Saturday, May 18th with an open house. The daylong event will showcase the new brunch menu and new specialty dishes along with t-shirt tie- dying, photo booths and trivia games.

Boulders on Broadway was one of the first restaurants to pour local and regionally crafted beers along with its pub friendly menu. Known for its experimental beers in Utah, the brewery was opened in 2018 by Miller and Wilson and its beers have been poured at BoB since last year. All four partners are also members of their local cycling community and were introduced to the beers through Wilson who lives in both Utah and Ahwatukee.

New on the menu at SaltFire

The new tap house has 10 SaltFire beers on tap and will continue to rotate local and national craft beers. Chef Joey Dohrmann will make a few changes to the menu refresh that has always served burgers, pizzas and appetizers. Menu changes will be pizzas and new entrees.

“Our Arizona roots run deep and once we got the brewery up and running in Salt Lake City, our goal was to figure out a way to get into the Arizona market,” said Wilson. “It started with self-distributing to select taprooms, and the reception and support was amazing. It gave us brand recognition which paved the way for working with the Geryol’s on re-branding Boulders as SaltFire Tap House.”
