Great idea for a Brew Pub. A ton of taps of both their own beers and guests and a big wall of reach-in coolers with bottled beers. One of the best places Iíve been. I just wish it was non-smoking.

Fantastic beer bar, bad choice if you are looking for a really good dinner. Unfortunately my traveling companions and I popped in for a good dinner (on the company dime). We had some chips and salsa, an appetizer and they offered me four samples of their house brews (gratis). Two were really good and the other two not too shabby (see my ratings), but we were hankering for some good chow and had to move on. Wish I had more time as they had a fantastic bottle selection that I really didnít have time to check out.

Every once in awhile you come across a beer bar that blows you away. This is one of them. One of the top 5 beer places Iíve ever been to. As a brewpub, the Papago brews are awesome. As a place for great beers on tap, this has excellent options. As a place for an excellent selection of bottles you can take off premise, I canít imagine a better place in the state of Arizona. I found my holy grail here, Alesmith Speedway Stout. Bought 3 large bottles to bring home. They also had Alesmith Horny Devil, Grand Cru and Yulesmith. Some DFH brews, pretty much all the Stone brews, and on, and on and on. A beer loverís paradise. I simply cannot say enough about this place. Adorned with an extensive selection of tap handles. Two TVs, a big screen in the middle of the bar and a small screen in the corner of the bar area. Not exactly a sports bar, but if they are playing your game, I canít imagine a place Iíd rather be. I will come back every time I am in the Phoenix area.

My regular stop in The Valley! Unbelievable draft selection, a cask ale, and bottle selections from the cooler to enjoy there or take home (at an attractive price). The staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable, and the food is nicer than the typical bar fare. I always enjoy myself here, and the people I bring invaribly tell me they do as well. If you enjoy good beer and are in the Valley of the Sun, donít miss this place!

Iíve been here a few times, and find it to be a lovely bar. About 30 taps, rotating some very impressive brews. For example, Oggiís Hop Juice was on last time I was there. The bottle selection is very nice as well, and the employees are very friendly. I especially like how most of the bartenders are women, rather than men. I seem to get along better with women. I found a few of them very attractive as well. I also really liked the Kris Herteleer painting on the wall.

Huge selection of bottle beers. Nice selection of regional taps. Beer savvy waitresses. They donít have a sampler, but they will pour you a gratis taste. Cigar selection. Not plush, but a critical stop on the Phoenix tour.

A regular stop for me every other friday. Tap selection changes every week. They have tastings , good little food selection. Two people in the staff Mel and Jon are probably the best servers. Can be a little hot when its crowded, and noisey, and wish it was bigger, still a great place.

Went at opening on Friday, 2pm ... so it was very empty. Service was friendly enough, I was with family just had to go before I left town. Ordered pizza and I was amazed by how awesome the pizza is. While the menu may not be extensive (pizzas, salads, sandwices) and they donít even have a soda machine (sodas came in bottles and beer mugs), the place is there for the beer. They had roughly 30 beers on tap including 5 or so of their own stuff, and some of the best beers you will ever find on tap. They had Lost Coast, Stone, Bear Rep, AleSmith, etc on tap. I enjoyed thier Hop Father although it was kind of tart. A very impressive beer bar. One knock I do have is the fact that their extensive bottle section is for purchase to take home and there was a bottleopening fee for drinking them there. But you could build your own 6pack and they had some very good/not very common micros and imports.
