Old school brewery bar, very large and spacey with a lot of staff. Surprising location, across the street from residential areas, but seems to have been part of the neighborhood for a while. Fairly crowded on a Thursday afternoon. I’ve not eaten, but was impressed by the large sizes of the plates being delivered all around. Broad tap selection, everything is decent, but nothing particularly memorable was drank here. Atmosphere seems to vary a lot depending on where you’re seated which makes the place suitable for many tastes, but also a bit too large to be very charming. Good spot, cheap prices, but not worth a big detour, especially in the Tempe area with better options.
Stopped in for beers on a Friday afternoon drinking outside in the January sun, nice. Really affordable to drink flights during happy hour. I thought their standard beers wwere solid and the special beers they had on, a helles, a dunkel, a schwarzbier, were pretty good and enjoyed a barrel aged cherry porter, nice job.
Massive corporate sports bar feel to this place in central Tempe. You can order a flight of all their standard beers for a cheap price and their rotating ones for a little more. Service is a bit nonchalant but speedy and superficially friendly. Beer quality is weak for the most part with a couple of standouts.
Very large and popular brewery with busy patio on a Friday afternoon. Close to campus. Parking could be difficult. Happy hour deals 2-6 great value. Interesting if limited selection of beers (no guests) but extra points for the effort to include cask. Full view of brewery adds to the authentic brewery ambiance. Seemed to be a regular meeting place for many. Well worth a visit if cruising the Tempe area, though a bit away from the rest of the action.
Big patio. Big bar. Lots of table seating. Exposed brewing area; you’re literally in the brewery. Attentive, helpful service. Good pub grub. Large portions. Fair priced. Offered all their standard (the stuff they bottle) beers they always do, nothing more. They seem stuck in ’old timey’ craft beer times.
A bit of a campus bar. As previous reviews note, expect to find street parking a few blocks away. ID checkers at the door. Quite large inside, although its not obvious from the outside. Large patio as well with swamp coolers in the summer. Packed packed on a Saturday evening. I finally managed to squeeze in at the bar. Service was decent. I tried one beer; a special Belgian, and it was standard fare. Most of the rest of the taplist was not too exciting; at least while I was there they were not deviating much from the old guard styles. Brewing equipment on full display, which is cool.
This place is pretty misleading from the outside. Nice patio area with misters is comfortable, but the inside is actually huge. Good view of brewing equipment, large bar, and even larger seating area makes this place loud and busy. Parking sucks though, so plan to be far from your car. Food was excellent and good selection. Beer was mediocre but good variety.
