We visited this brewpub the first time on 27.12.2013. Large room with a nice and unique table arrangement, one very long table separating the room in two halves. Nice interior, many metal signs from local and international breweries. They have around 30 beers on tap, whereof 5 are from their own brewery (beers are contract brewed by Huss brewing, hence not a real brewpub). We had the IPA, a vanilla orange Weissbier, two stouts and a Belgium style beer (this one we liked most). Their own beers were all above average. Great selection of draft guest beers - Ska Brewing, Green Flash, Bear Republic and many more. In addition they have quite a few refrigerators filled with great mainly regional bottles. Food was also good, we had a Pizza and a pita wrap. Service very friendly and attentive. We met many nice local people during the 4 evenings we visited the Pub. Overall a really good beer experience, we will definitely come back.

Great spot in S. Scottsdale. Everyone is friendly and generally knowledgeable. Food is decent, though not outstanding. Selection is above average - you can usually find something lurking in the cooler that you havenít seen in awhile. Prices are good on most items, especially if youíre staying onsite. Love than I could drink an Expedition Stout on premise for under $5.
This was my favorite place to get good beer when I lived in PHX in í09. Glad to see itís still a good place to get good brews.

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.

Great selection but not really a great place to hang out. Itís more like a beer store with some tables and a bar. Location in a strip mall attracts small, locals only crowd, with few women.

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.

Would have liked to see more Papago beers available, but the that were on tap were quite good. Above average draft list. Add to that the fairly large selection of bottles on hand and this place is a winner. Good food, TVs to catch a game, board and trivia games on hand. Good amount of seating space but fairly short bar. 1 downside: you are subjected to whatever music other patrons play on the jukebox...

Beer joint located in a strip mall. Not so much of a brew pub; only had 2 of their own beers on tap when we visited. Good section on tap and lots of bottles in coolers for you to choose from. A little surprised there wasnít more local stuff. Pizza was great - Beer BQ pizza is all good. Place had a cool divey bar vibe and lots of TVs for watching games. Cool place - you should go.

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.

Stopped in for lunch and brews. Unassuming place located in a strip mall, inside has a decent sized seating area, bar area and loads of coolers full of beer. Great service from the friendly and knowledgeable staff. Huge selection of draft beer with some Papago offerings and a huge bottle assortment in the coolers. Food was above par for most brewpubs. Value was great on most draft beers, some bottles were over prices compared to local bottle shops. This place is a must stop, we ate, drank some amazing beers and took some to go.
