Doesnít look like much from the outside or the surrounding area, but the inside is very large and thereís a lot of good beer. Taps are priced well, too. The bartender really knew his stuff. Good mix of local and regional and international crafts. We didnít eat, but there is a food menu available. Definitely worth a visit for a few good local beers.

A very large and spacious bar that has a small bar in the middle and multiple floors, nooks and crannies. Service was great by the waiters and barteders were decent. Lots of staff and they seemed to be having more fun with each other than the patrons. Food was decent and value was just OK. A bit pricey but the beer selection was pretty good. A decent local, but unless there is something specific on the tap list I wouldnít go out of my way.

This "dive bar" ticked loads of boxes for me... good beer range and quality, excellent pizza at 1am, good service by keen, knowledgeable staff. Iíd be happy if that were my local.

Often frequented when I lived down the street. Has a respectable service and its tap list is insane, as in they have a lot of taps but nothing is that rare or interesting. Iíve always felt a little uncomfortable whenever Iíve gone: it seems on any given night this place is crawling with bros and their obnoxiousness, but weekends are the absolute worst. They have good selections on their juke, however thereís usually a line for it so I had to endure Lady Gaga, Toby Keith and Flo Rider for half an hour. Food was filling but mediocre. Servers are nice but appear to be a bit on the uninformed side.

Great selection, friendly staff, and their newest feature is an Android app to track the beers on tap. Food is decent bar fare. Pizzas are pretty good.

Great selection, love the staff, but unfortunately the food is just OK. Itís nice to get an independently run place in where a corporate place used to be. Definitely worth a trip!

Nice changing selection of draft and bottle beers. Food is meh, but Kristin (who works the weekday afternoons) is nice and is willing to talk beer. Certainly a "go-to" place in Tempe.

If I do a book on lesser known bars around the country, I would likely include this one. A short drive from Tempeís university hotels, with ample parking, close to the highway. A medium sized place, busier than they could handle at lunchtime with us older guys dropping in. About 24 taps, several with a good selection of lesser known names, an improvement from the web selection. Oh, 60-70 bottles with again an attempt to provide drinkable craft brews that may get lost in the shuffle. Glazed over windows, this is an old school bar, and a welcome supplement to the big chain restaurant/bars about town.
