Interesting place with 12 taps and a few fridges, plus the bottle shop next door. Four 4 ounce pours were 7 bucks, not bad. No food, but there are a few places in the same strip mall where you can pick up Thai, etc, and eat it here. Worth a stop.
Visited around 11pm on a Friday night and the place was maybe half full. Semi-modern, compact establishment with a great selection of [mostly non-AZ] beers, all displayed nicely on a television screen. Custom flights of 4 available for $8-10 (depending on beer price), which is a great deal for a bar. Very friendly and quick service. The best beer stop for me in Tempe. Highly recommended. And don’t forget to check out the bottle shop next door.
Met up with Ibrew2or3 here before heading to the airpoirt. Nice enough taproom hanging off a liquor store. Not a lot of room inside, but it was cozy. Taplist was interesting; oddly stocked with Oskar Blues; not sure if this is normal or not. Lots of coolers of bottles, but I did not really check them out.
Visited on a Wednesday evening. Attached to the liquor store next door (Tops Liquor). Small narrow space, 12 seats at the bar, a couch and a handful of small tables. The crowd mostly students, pretty laid back. 24 beers on draft, nice selection of beers though I was surprised to see 0 AZ beers. Selection had a bunch of Colorado and Utah beers, which seemed odd. Bottles are available as well. Friendly service. Quirky, no frills place, though if I was a local I would keep an eye on their draft list, certainly a place to feature unique beers and one offs.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
small bar, in store fromnt next to regular Tops. A mini-version of Papago. 10 taps, 2- staff, 100 or so bottles. Growlers being contemplated. All good tops, with some spectacular and not on elsewhere, i.e. St. Bernardus X-Mas.Mini-events such as distrubutors giving out their beers. Comfy couches. A must stop.
Small bar connected to Tops Liquors in Tempe. It’s a nice, cool place with bartenders that would fit in at Three Floyds. The tap list was very nice, especially for someone like me who doesn’t have regular access to some of these labels. I grabbed a Lost Abbey I’d never seen before. Fair prices, proper glassware, no food. Just a simple, solid beer bar. Definitely worth a visit while you’re in Tempe.
Si ce n’était que pour la sélection et la possibilité d’avoir n’importe quelle bière avec nitro, on parlerait d’un incontournable. Le service était malheureusement pas très dédié et l’ambiance trop neutre. Quand même une des meilleures sélection en Arizona.
cool little place next to a great liquor store. some decent beers on tap, especially local AZ ones. dark lit and pretty small. there is a decent pizza place just down the row in the strip mall and its pretty tasty. if your in Tempe, check it out!
