In 1994, Kym and Pete Buttschardt opened the first Roosters Brewing Company on Historic 25th Street in Downtown Ogden. The 119-year-old building (constructed in 1890) originally housed everything from Chinese laundries to House of Ill Repute in the early 1900's. The restored building, with a unique ambiance and outdoor patio made the 25th Street location a perfect place for meeting and mingling with friends. Roosters quickly became THE PLACE TO GO and a community "gathering spot" for Ogden's diverse and eclectic population. It's not unusual to see mud-splattered mountain bikers enjoying burgers and brews at one table while more formally dressed couples enjoy herb-crusted rack of lamb and fine wine at another.
