Canít really fault them for the strip mall location -- welcome to the Phoenix íburbs, after all. Interior feels a little hodge podge, as though they canít figure out if they want it to be modern (the prominent flat screen stuck onto one wall) or outdoorsy (the faux foliage) or kitchy (the random signage and knick-knackery). All that said, the service was top notch, with our server giving us a thorough (and pretty spot on) explanation of each beer. Food was definitely tasty and pretty reasonably priced. On our last visit, the tap list was nicely filled -- 8 of their own beers, no guest taps -- though other visits have seen some shortage issues. The beer itself is generally solid stuff, and I appreciate the effort to branch out and offer some interesting styles (smoked saison, sour porter, berliner weisse variations, etc.) Overall, totally worth a visit, but from a sheer ambiance perspective, I prefer some other Valley spots.

This is a cool place -- itís a cozy brewpub with neat wood taps. The service is very good here, pretty fast and knowledgeable. The selection when I went wasnít great, with a mediocre selection of styles and no guest taps. Value was good enough, prices were fine. Enjoyable place to hang out.

WOW! this could now be the best place in AZ-they have an incredible imperial IPA, great session pale ale and very solid lite ales. I didnt have all their beers the day i was there, but what i had was fantastic! Atmosphere is cool-seems to be a converted applebees or something of that nature. I had a great time here with great friends. I will definately go back to this place when in town!

One visit I was greeted by Jon who welcomed my wife and I with a hearty ďWelcome to the Wilderness.Ē Nice. They take their beer and the wilderness seriously here. Just about every beer is named after some aspect of the Arizona Wilderness (eg parks, streams, mountain passes, etc). Pretty cool. I love how they utilize local farms for ingredients including the local grains that they have malted. I can taste the difference and freshness in the beer. So the space is modestly dressed up with neutral tree like wall paper and such trying to create a bit of a wilderness look to the place. I love the split log beer sampler ďtray.Ē Nice touch. So far there hasnít been any guest beers available but their 6 to 8 or so tap handles usually have a nice spread of styles. What food Iíve had so far has been really good. I must get back and have some of the wings and the duck fat fries. Donít know why I havenít had them yet. The staff is friendly and a few of them know craft beer as good as or better than you. It is always fun talking beer with those staff members. I think this is very much worth going out of the way to visit and SanTan is on the same road only a few miles to the south.

> Smaller brewpub with a smaller but above average quality house beer tap list. Outdoors themed

>> Itís attached to a Brueggerís Bagels, so thereís that and the parking lot is like a fast food joint. Interior is small, like maybe this used to be a fast food joint as well. Interior is themed outdoors, dark exposed wood with barrels and a beautiful lacquered wood bar. Tasting flights are served in amazing custom wood logs with nice mini snifters. Tap list is small, all house beers, with their core lineup it seems and few seasonals and specialties. Prices were normal. Staff was quirky, friendly, and clearly personable to their frequent patrons. They are open until 1am on Fri-Sat, but when I got there around 11:30 they had already stacked most of their chairs and the place was largely cleared out. Kitchen closes a bit earlier, but that was totally normal. In terms of beer offered, there wasnít too much of interest (porter, dubbel, saisons were average) plus their special chili stout and beet witbier. The beet witbier was by far the best. Granted, I didnít try their best beers the Refuge and Little Gye as I had already had those.

Cool looking spot in Gilbert. Parking lot parking, cool atmosphere inside. Friendly service. Slightly disappointed that there were only 4 beers on tap (2 very solid, one mediocre and one that was flat out foul). Service was great, prices were fair, didnít try the food. I would return if I was in the area.

Arrived on a fri about 7:30 and it was fairly jammed but we found 2 seats at a shared long high top table. They were out of their IPA so we tried the APA and the new Table Top Saison. Both excellent examples of the style. Then we opted for the 5-beer sampler. The Gose was very unique and the American Presidential imp stout, not part of the sampler was world class with flavors of smoked jalapeŮo. Decor is rather eclectic. A little unkempt, but in an endearing way. Outdoor patio seating area is nice. Food is mostly of the burger variety. Main impression is that their beer signature is the use of locally sourced ingredients in a unique and creative way; like adding beets to a wit beer. A fantastic addition to the American craft brewing scene.

Started a weekend of Phoenix-area beer drinking here. Itís not exactly in the wilderness, but inhabits a strip mall in Gilbert. The inside is nice, low-lit, wood-paneled. The tasters are served on half-cut logs with holes for the glasses. They play up the theme despite not being in the wilderness, which I thought was fun. The bartender was awesome, super friendly. The food was very good, definitely above your average brewpub. The staff hung around and shot the shit and was fun to talk to. Only about half the taps were occupied, which was my only disappointment here. Iím not sure how many they typically keep on. 4 of the 5 beers I tried were very good. For a new place, this one seems to have a lot figured out. I enjoyed it a lot and definitely recommend it while youíre visiting Phoenix.

Place rating #200!
Only 4 beers on tap on our visit, but all were really quality. Great visit and great beer. Quite crowded as I was expecting on a Friday around the happy hour time frame. I wish we had something this good close to me. Definitely worth the hype, and Iím really glad we were able to fit it in to our trip here.

In a strip in the middle of nowhere. Bar is actually nicely laid out with a big bar, seating area and patio. They just have their own stuff on tap. Simple food done very well, burgers were very good. A little pricey, but not too bad. Service was great, very keen and smart staff. A nice place with pretty good beer. I will be back.
