Iíve been here twice now on visits to Scottsdale. Nice selection of taps, and a fabulous cooler of bottled beer (which you can take to go as well). Servers are very knowledgeable about the beers and have been very friendly and helpful both visits. Pizzas are good as well. Definitely worth seeking out if youíre in the area.

I hit this place up 2-3 times per week. 30 rotating taps allows for something new on nearly ever visit. They have a massive cooler selection that is better then most liquor stores. They have make your own 6 pack deals to go as well as to-go growlers. The food here is also fantastic, i find myself getting pizza and wings to go from Papago, even with dozens of Pizza joints in the area. Its hard to find a better place to get a pint then Papago.

Funky inyerior with beer stuff every where. A little on the dim side, haveínt these pubs heard of light. The service was decent. The beer selection was amazing both on tap and in bottles! Definatly the place to stop in Scottsdale.

Great place to enjoy some great beers. 30 on tap that they rotate daily I believe. Usually have a couple of their beers on tap which are pretty tasty. Food is alright but you donít go there for the food. It is all about the beer there.

Awesome, awesome place. 30 beers on tap with cask ale. Brew about 4-5 beers of their own on tap. Service is really up and down, itís either pretty bad or itís rather good. When itís good the people know their beer well. Pizza is great, havenít had any of the other food. huge cooler in the back that has well over 200-300 beers. knock down the rating if you donít like smoking, but donít miss out on this fantastic brewpub

great place. about twenty changing taps with one cask. never stock anything that is gaurenteed to be bad except in my opinion guiness and ace pear cider. staff is up and down and so is service. some memebers of the staff are great very knowledgable others not so much. service is not so good when busy. food is great especially the pizza. an added huge plus is a great fridge of good beer. the only better selection of beer is the ajs in glendale and that is not that much better. if smoke is a problem that could be negative. truly excellent place.

I had some difficulty with service the afternoon I stopped by. After sitting at a table for 10 minutes with no service, I approached a waitress who happily procurred me a Hop Father. Really good beer. I had to fetch my second beer also. On the plus side I was able to buy some nice Fish Brewing beers by the single as well as some others. I visited a bit with the owner, when he came by my table and he seems like a very nice fellow.

Beerwise, they have the standard micros and then some in an enclosed wall cooler. 32 rotating taps are the best part of this place. They usually get some rare stuff and pour til itís gone. This place has alot going for it but the people who work the floor are not consistant in thier service.

Great selection of draught beers, including several from the Sonoran Brewing Company, and many bottled beers. 31 draughts total, including one cask ale (Avery IPA). Didnít eat. Service was a bit on the slow and unfriendly side. Ambience is lacking: very dark, smoky, and located in a strip mall. Go for the beer because it otherwise doesnít have a whole lot going for it. I agree with the previous two raters: non-smoking would be an improvement.
