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

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.

Difficult to find but worth the effort. Excellent selection of bottles that you can consume on site. Their own beers (contract brewed) are very good. Wish I would have had time to try the food. Everyone was friendly and willing to talk about their beers and their beer selection.

This place is glorious. It combines a medium sized dive bar with nice draft list, a few of their own (nano?) brewed beers, and a to-go bottle selection thatís tough to beat. Nearly all the bottles were sold as singles, and priced very well for that format. There were no prices labeled, so I was afraid the bill would be high, but in the end, the prices were good. As for the selection, the fridges are arranged so you see 1 of each type of bottle, maximizing their space. Itís just jammed with great west coast craft beers. Fun place to drink good beer while buying way too much beer to take home.

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.

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.

The beer selection on tap and in the bottle are extensive and with great selections. I went to try their beer. I had a sampler with four beers. Elsieís (Irish Coffee Milk Stout), Coconut Joe (Coconut Coffee Stout), El Rabusto (American Black Ale) and Orange Blossom (Vanilla Mandarin Wheat Ale). They also have Oude Zuipers in 750ml bottles which is a Belgian triple which is brewed in Belgium. The stouts had very pronounced coffee flavor. I wound up taking away a growler of Elsieís. Orange Blossom is their most popular and is a good lighter flavored beer. While the bar food is good, does it really matter when the beer is great?

A very nice big bar, with several beers of their own. Besides that, there are a lot of other beers, on tap and in bottles. Itís also a store. The staff is freindly. Food is good ass well.

Papago is the grandfather of craft beer in the Phoenix area. Several contract brews that are pretty tasty, plus an extensive draft list of other faves and rarities. Plus, a great bottle selection to consume on premise or to go. Service is hit and miss, but almost always a good time.

Wow, even after you turn into the proper adobe-coloured plaza that houses this place, it is still hard to locate thanks to pretty poor signage. But man, it is worth the goose chase! the minute you walk in, you can feel the beer geek vibe-- tap handles and other breweriana everywhere! A great wall of taps faces an equally great help-yourself cooler. The staff were super friendly and eager to pour samples and just hang and hat about beers. We had th white pizza and it was delicious. You can buy bottles to go, and I was impressed with how fairly priced things seemed to be. I got a 750ml bottle of Speedway Decadence 2011 for $12. An absolute must if you are a beer geek in the desert.
