Great little brewpub. The food is killer southwestern - I had the chicken enchiladas verdes and it was better than anytthing similar that Iíve had. Quick walk from the light rail station down Camelback. Service was very friendly and helpful. About 8 beers of their own brewing. Didnít look at the bottles menu. Friendly bar, though small. Homey, small restaurant space. This is what brewpubs are all about. A recommended stop, especially if youíre in central Phoenix.

This used to be Sonoran Brewing and has the same quality. It is a nice place with really good pale ale and IPA. The barleywine is good too.

Visited 3/4/2011 for RBWG 2011.
The place is broken into 2 sections, actually 2 seperate buildings. We sat in the second one, called the Brewers Den. Nice looking place. It was fairly empty on a Friday afternoon.
The servers were kind of upset that so many people wanted samples and over all they werenít real friendly. When we all ordered food and a lot of people ended up getting pints they got nicer but were still sarcastic. Then they got upset again when we wanted to split tabs. Didnít leave much tip (if any), which couldnt have made them happy either. Itís one of those self fulfilling prophecies.
The food was good. I ordered a burger with blue cheese. Some of the beers were good. The standouts were the vanilla porter, the amber, and the IPA dryhopped with Amarillo hops.
If I was in the area and only with one or two other people Iíd stop back in for the food and to see whatís new on tap. But I wouldnt go back with a large group.

Brewpub in Phoenix/Scottsdale area. About 10 taps. Tried the ipa and porter, both were pretty good. Service at the bar was friendly. Seemed like mostly locals (and me). Didnít try the food. Worth stopping in to have a beer if you are nearby.

The place and interior looks a little tired, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer samplers of all their beers which is great. Food is good, but not great. Overall a nice place with good beer.

Always been one of my favs in the Phoenix metro. When I come, I mostly come during happy hour: discounted pints and discounted appetizers make the check a little less painful. I would opt for the seasonals instead of the standards, which tend to be a little on the generic side. The triple IPA is a personal favorite. Food is average to good. Big downside about this place is how small it is: tiny bar area and the main dining section does accommodate very many. Location is good though as itís walkable from the light rail and not too far from Downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale. Servers tend to know the beers well but the service overall can be spotty when they get busy.

Stopped here for lunch and brews in January í13. Decent place, fairly clean. Great service and even got some free tasters. Selection was good but they were out of some of their regulars, they said the head brewer had some personal problems. They brought in some other breweries beers though to round out the tap list. Food was pretty good, brewpub food with a southwest flair. Value was about average. Definitely a place to stop if in the area.

A bit hard to find... very blah interior, reminded me of a cheap local bar... beer is ok, nothing at all special, two decent beers, but overall average... atmosphere is boring... wouldnít head back here

A really cool brewery with some good beer and food. If it was closer to my house I would frequent all the time.

They seem to always have unique beers on-tap, even if their selection is somewhat limited. Sun Up almost certainly brews the best IPAs in Arizona; their food and service are also top of the game. The location is a little flustered, however: I past it several times trying to find the entrance. I finally did but itís really hidden well.
