About Us

Boulders on Broadway (530 W. Broadway Rd.) helped herald in Arizona’s craft beer scene when it opened its doors in Tempe 17 years ago, opening in 2007. Now the established Arizona craft beer bar and restaurant is turning a new page as it partners with Utah-based SaltFire Brewing Co. to become the SaltFire Brewing Tap House.

The transition brings the brewery’s beers to the Arizona market, a menu refresh, and eventually in-state brewing. Boulders owners Erick and Rochelle Geryol will continue to operate the Tap House in partnership with SaltFire co-owners Ryan Miller and Tim Wilson. The Geryols operate their two other restaurants – Spokes on Southern in Tempe and Boulders on Southern in Mesa. Those businesses will not change.

“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. Miller and Wilson opened SaltFire Brewing Co. in Salt Lake City in 2018 where it has become known on the Utah slopes for its experimental styles.

Boulders opened in 2007. With 30 beers on tap and 70 in the bottle, it was one of the first to showcase local and regional craft beers alongside a pub-friendly menu of pizzas, burgers and appetizers.

The Geryols were first introduced to SaltFire through Wilson, who lives locally in Ahwatukee as well as in Utah. Their mutual connections with the Southwest cycling community let the relationship grow. SaltFire is a beer sponsor of the Flagstaff to Grand Canyon (Flag2GC) charity ride and the Geryol’s restaurants are used for pre-ride events.

“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.”

Boulders started featuring SaltFire beers on its taps last year. As the SaltFire Brewing Tap House, ten of its taps will be dedicated to SaltFire brews and it will continue to rotate the remaining taps with other local and national styles.
