Nice, warm, somewhat hip place next to one of the best beer stores in Phoenix. Kinda of a small place with a couple couches, one high top, a couple tables and about 8 seats at the bar. Has about 15 or so tap handles with a couple coolers and a decent bottle selection. The tap selection is usually decent but sometimes they have some duds on tap. The prices are on the higher side in the Phoenix area, though the best deal is 4, four oz samplers for $8. it gives you a chance to sample some of their $12 pours.

Cool looking bare bones bar with 6 or so bar seats and then some tables and booths. As others have said they will make most beer geeks happy with their craft beer tap selection and they seem to go after kegs not likely found elsewhere. The draft Rogue Old Crusty was dynamite and I donít recall ever seeing that on tap anywhere I have been. I like that they have a much more diverse cooler stored selection than the attached store. I do not know if those can be purchased to go or have to be opened. I had a good experience and had some tasty craft beer to drink. I wouldnít mind making this a weekly or at least monthly stop after work. By the way the beer sampler selection is a great deal too and improving the "value" of this place for me.

Nice, hip spot with a large tap system. Lots of locals-many draught only-and a nice mix of classics plus new and seasonal beers. Part of one of the better beers shops in town.

If you want rare highend taps near there release date, this is your place. They let you bring in food and are attached to a great liquor store. Unfortunately both are seriously overpriced. I have paid 10-15$ for taps of rare beer that I could get for 1/3 the price at the other great arizona bars. Greg is awesome and really knows what he is doing but the price and trendy ambiance make it good not great

visited during the RBWG, very cool bar, pretty small but makes up for it with a large selection and covers AZ well. Prices were decent and the staff was friendly but very busy during our visit.

Very chill place attached to one of the best bottle shops in the state. They usually have a nice selection on their 24 taps, and offer a flight of four 4oz beers from their tap selection for $8 which is perfect for tickers or those unsure if they like a certain style. Bottle selection is good too but the corking fee is a bit steep. Bartenders are very cool. Overall, nice little neighborhood bar. Eat first, as there is no kitchen.

Set off the side of Tops Liquor-a must stop if visiting in the Phoenix metro. Good to great selection of beer with little to no ambiance. Itís just a beer drinking joint with a bathroom-what more could you want?

I love this place. Itís two blocks from the house, the bartenders are awesome, and I always find something Iíve been wanting to try. I even like the simple and non-cluttered decor. Thereís no food there but you are allowed to bring in food from the restaurants in that strip. Thai Basil and Tessioís will even walk the food over to you!
