Stopped in for lunch during the week. There is a taproom as well as a brewpub, but the taproom hours are a little odd (opening several hours later than the brewpub). 10 taps in the brewpub (taproom has more, I was told by the bartender). Flight of 5 for $8. Burgers were quite good. Bit of a sportsbar feel.

Love that this place is in the state, but it might as well be on the other side of the planet! Super solid brews, none of which were below solid. Staff is very attentive, and you can’t go wrong with growlers to go! Love the mad scientist mentality of the brewers. They are never afraid to attack a unique style or barrel age anything! Heard the food was amazing, but haven’t stayed long enough to try anything. Should definitely stop by the place if in the area...worth the visit for sure!

Last stop of the evening, last place whale to slay. First off, I was surprised as hell when I first saw the place. Yes, I know it was not actually in the wilderness, but I guess I didnt realize that its a large and obviously well funded brewbup operation. This place would rival the chains in the slickness of presentation. It was doing a brisk business at 8PM on a Sunday, but there were spots in the lot and at the bar. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was really good (I had pulled pork). They had 10 of their own beers on tap while I was there, and were selling them in flights of 5. Of course I had two flights :). None of the crazy stuff was on, but the DIPA was in, as well as a smoked gose. Beers ranged from awesome to Meh, but none were really flawed or anything. I did think that the coffee stout had a hint of sourness, but it was great last time I tried it. Both the IPA and DIPA seemed a bit old school to me. Is this God’s gift to brewing? No, but they have generally solid beers and try a lot of different things. Well worth the visit for sure.

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 wasn’t too bad. I’d say it is way way overhyped.

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.
