30 taps and a ton of bottles, all in fridge cases, so window shopping is the preferred method. They had a number of items that I wasnít able to find at AJs or Total Wine. Prices are not marked, thatís a negative. Great atmosphere, good crowd - on a Monday night! Good food also, except they forgot our pretzel. One staff member was a bit pushy, the others were friendly and laid back. I would definitely go back.

Visited 3/4/2011 for Ratebeer Winter Gathering.

Located in a strip mall, I was greeted by a bouncer checking IDís. Inside there arenít a whole lot of seats but it wasnít a problem. Along the one wall is a row of fridges full of beer. Nice selection of things from all over. But Iíd say I was more impressed with the tap lineup. There were at least half a dozen Papago beers on tap (contracted by other breweries) as well as some oddball beers that I really wanted to try (namely the one year lambic from Bockor) but were out of. I guess the night before was Moylans night so they had some left overs on tap from that.

The server came by pretty often (every 15 minutes or so) and asked if we wanted anything else. The owner of the place came by and talked with us for a little bit. Great service all around.

For all the beer I had I didnt really pay that much. Good times. Iíll be returning the next time Iím in the area.

Located in a slightly seedy shopping mall, this place has bit of a rustic feel to it. Lots of good taps and lots of coolers as well for sixers to go or to break open at the bar. They had some locals, including their own contract brew which was mainly solid, and some national craft as well. Itís solid but thereís some unknown factor that prevents me from being terribly enthusiastic about the place.

Visited here in Sep í09 on a Saturday evening between 8 and 10pm. I was surprised how quiet it was for a Saturday night with perhaps half a dozen or so others in the bar. Most of the trade seemed to be coming from folks popping in to buy bottles to take home. Service was great - but they were far from stretched. Bar man was interested to have a UK visitor and we chatted a bit and he poured me a few Papago samplers as well as the ones I purchased. 30 or so taps and a good few hundred bottles in the fridges opposite the bar. We eat some bar snacks, nacho, wings type stuff and they were fine. Decent joint and would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Beer nerd decorated man cave inside a strip mall complete with an impressive refrigerated bottle selection and hefty tap list featuring a small number of their house beers, perhaps 4 of 32 were from Papago. Bottles in the fridge can be for on-premise consumption or can be to-go, which is pretty sweet. Service was a bit slow, but we came around noon and there was only one person on staff for about 15 people. She was friendly but a bit overwhelmed having mixed up our drink order slightly. Food was pretty decent. Artichoke crab dip was great, chips were not homemade unfortunately. Thai chicken pizza was delicious. We thought two of us could split a large and we were wrong. Had leftovers and they gladly boxed the rest to go. I was disappointed by the lack of house beers since I had tried 2 of the 4 offered already at other beer bars in town. Their house beer made by Van Steenberge was disappointing. Overall a fun, informal place.

This is just the kind of world-class beer bar I would like to have in my city. Great local tap selection, excellent bottle selection, which you can buy for take out by the way, and a superb neighbourly feel. A Must Stop if you are in the Phoenix region for sure. Or Arizona for that matter.

A great bar, a must stop. 300 bottles for sale or drinking right there, in addition to 30 odd taps of above average offerings. Mostly people sitting in their own groups at tables, but still a decent sized bar. Younger crowd, but the absence of music blasting attracts the likes of me. Beer served with right temperature and carbonation was noted. Not all of thier own contracted recipes were outstanding, however the range and quality of the taps was. Had a very good time, stayed way longer than i expected, and suspect I would do the same frequently if I lived within an hourís drive.

Papago, a great old school brewpub, with long communal tables made of old posts, 1980s feel, close to 30 taps with 4 of their own, plentiful pub grub, and good service.

Came in here on a Friday night. Crowded but not unapproachably so. Tap list was Belgian-heavy; only had two house beers as they prepared for Belgian Fest the next day. Prices for drafts were high but bottles were surprisingly cheap. Lots of stuff in the fridges. Atmosphere was warm and vibrant and loud. Solid service. Great stop in Scottsdale. One of the too few places in the Phoenix area.

30 drafts with really good stuff but I prefer OHSO to tick... ambiance isnít great, in a strip mall, places seems old, run down and dirty, lacks character... service was nice but unattentive... 5 in house brewers, all were good, really great guests, old dipsea, abyss, monks cafe on draft, a couple hundred bottles for sale to go. Only did tasters of Papagot beers, prices a hit high for Phoenix... food was standard bar fare... Good bordering great place but with the drive no need to come from Phoenix to head here when you can get a lot of their beers around town
