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 thatís 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 didnít know their reputation I would be MORE harsh in my reviews... they basically make sub-3 beer across the board and itís 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 itís 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.

Nice place to visit while in the area...but definitely not a destination craftbeer location. Some will like the dťcor...others not...I agree with the reviewer who says they may not have quite figured out what the theme or at least the execution of it should be. Having said that...the beers were a notch or two above average...good but few were highly memorable. The service was very good...nice and friendly staff...the food on the other hand...although enjoyable...did not rise that far above a TGIFís or the like. Again...if in the should visit at some point...but not really for the craftbeer traveler in town for a short time. I hope Iím not being too harsh...but I did arrive here directly from the must better well as weekend exploring the San Diego craftbeer scene (nuff!)

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.
