Une brasserie bon enfant qui se veut familiale avant tout. L’éclairage est tamisé, la déco néo-rustique et la sélection modeste à mon passage mais qui peut offrir plus à ce que je comprend. Je ferais pas de détour mais les options sont rares en Arizona alors ça change la donne. Ça passerait complètement inaperçu en Californie, Oregon ou Illinois disons.

They usually have between 5-8 of their own beers on tap, a list that is always rotating. They update their tap list on their website daily, so check it to see what’s on tap and on deck. The service has been very good each time I have been here. No matter if it is crowded during lunch or a weekend. The food is really good (onion rings are amazing) and they have lunch specials most of the week. The beer is my favorite in the area and I like the fact that they brew styles that aren’t typically big in the US. A must visit if you are visiting the Phoenix area.

Visited March 13, 2015.

This was a quick stop to kill an hour while waiting for the family to get back so we could go to dinner. I probably should have suggested this place as the burgers looked really good, though I didn’t try them. Next time. The place is right off Country Club Dr / hwy 87 next to a gas station. It’s in a strip mall so not really in the wilderness as the name implies (though admittedly I don’t know anything about the area, so maybe there is a wilderness preserve nearby). Plenty of patio seating outside and during my visit (happy hour) the place was pretty full. Luckily a seat opened at the bar. You can see the brewery tucked away in the corner beyond the bar (small, maybe 7bbl). Fairly nice place in terms of atmosphere and décor.

The beers certainly aren’t bad but I didn’t think they were all that impressive. Certainly better than the Desert Eagle beers I had right before though. I was a bit confused by the wit and the Berliner. The wit was super murky and sour but the Berliner was clear and only lightly soured. According to their menu the wit spent time in barrels that came from Russian River (the ones used for Sonambic, which is blended to become Beatificaiton) which would explain the sourness but not the overall ugliness. The IPA wasn’t bad. The bitter made me laugh as it was 6.3% ABV. In any event the beers are OK. The prices on food were a bit high as they were on beer but nothing too outrageous. Parking was easy and the service was friendly, albeit a little slow in getting my order. I’ll stop back in to try the burgers next time I’m in town but I wont be making a trip all the way from California just for the beer here.

Short review: This place lives up to the hype. We stopped by for a quick draft at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon ... there was a wait for tables, and a crowd at the bar. A great indicator. We had two beers, and both were excellent. The bearded (male) and hot (female) staff were all over it. Cool vibe. Good-looking food (didn’t try yet). Looks like a needed expansion is coming soon. A+. Brewery #705.

A little loud, even on a Monday night. The beers were all good, albeit overrated on this site. Good bar food as well, definitely worth a stop.

Small suburban location that’s expanding next door in early 2015. Kettles and fermenters in the open space inside the front door. Burgers and fries and tacos on the menu. I think without the local homers this place would have rightly been deemed another mediocre brewery making nothing special. Three beers had mild diacetyl and the porter was astringent and coarse. Honestly I feel like if I didn’t know their reputation I would be MORE harsh in my reviews... they basically make sub-3 beer across the board and it’s a complete head scratcher how they are regarded so highly, even with the influence of local over-rating. One of eight beers was enjoyable, a dry Quad.

About twenty minutes from the airport area so we went in for a burger and beers. 9 on tap and I had several, all quite nice. Only downside I guess is that it’s a pretty generic mall pub feel but everyone was super friendly.

The last stop in Arizona before heading back to California. Gotta go out with a bang, I suppose?

Pretty good selection of beers on tap, nine during my visit. They pretty much run the gamut in terms of styles that you might find at a brewery these days. Probably the best beer on my visit was the framboise. Though the coffee stout was excellent as well. Other beers kind of varied in enjoy-ability.

They do kind of go with the rustic, outdoors theme here, which is cool. We got a small bite/appetizer while we tried the beers (opted for their herbed fries which were pretty good, but you better like rosemary). Seems like more of a burgers and fries kind of place than Fate.

Probably one of the two best known places in the area, but I felt that Fate was a better option just because of the quality of the beers. I would be cool with having either of these as a local hangout, though.
