Had time to kill before my flight in Phoenix so stopped by for a late lunch. Kind of a strange ambiance. Feels like a mix of a Buffalo Wild Wings and a brewery. Strange that they have empty beer bottles in the bathroom. Looks like trash. The beer was good though and the food wasnít too bad. Iíd say it is way way overhyped.

Une brasserie bon enfant qui se veut familiale avant tout. Líťclairage est tamisť, la dťco nťo-rustique et la sťlection modeste ŗ mon passage mais qui peut offrir plus ŗ ce que je comprend. Je ferais pas de dťtour mais les options sont rares en Arizona alors Áa change la donne. «a passerait complŤtement inaperÁu 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 whatís 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 arenít 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 didnít try them. Next time. The place is right off Country Club Dr / hwy 87 next to a gas station. Itís in a strip mall so not really in the wilderness as the name implies (though admittedly I donít 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 dťcor.

The beers certainly arenít bad but I didnít 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 wasnít 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. Iíll stop back in to try the burgers next time Iím 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 (didnít 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 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.
