If you’re like me, when you go out of town, there is one important question you need to answer before you head out. Where can I get a good beer? So, I set out to answer that very question for you. Here is what I found:
Scottsdale Beer Company
The Scottsdale Beer Company is located on Shae Blvd in Scottsdale. It’s menu boasts of more than five IPA’s, a couple amber ales, a Scottish, even a hefeweizen. The Texas Tea Double Chocolate Stout with an ABV of 10% might be a winner! Enjoy some homemade food with a glass of beer brewed onsite. Scottsdale Beer Company prides themselves on brewing local beer and investing back into the community.
Four Peaks Grill and Tap
With four locations in Arizona to serve you, this one can be found on North Hayden Road in Scottsdale. Their flagship beer is the “Kilt-Lifter” Scottish ale, described as a full-bodied ale with caramel and roasted barley flavors. The building the brewery is built in was an old creamery. The building still holds the original design, built with red brick, wooden ceilings and a glass clerestory. They also host a variety of events. Click here to visit Four Peaks website!
Fate Brewing Company
Find your fate at on Shea Blvd. They believe fate brings together people over a good meal and beer. They brew five core beers and have them on tap at all times. The Candy Bar Stout sounds delicious, brewed with peanuts, vanilla and coco. With what appears to be a very inviting atmosphere, they invite you to join them for a pint and a pie. They’ve got a great variety of crafted wheat beers and IPAs and much more. They serve lunch, brunch and dinner. There are 30 beers on tap with rotating guest beer. They host events and private parties.
Papago Brewing can be found on Mcdowell. The selection of beers is incredible. And the coconut stout is one to rave about. The atmosphere is great to sit and have a couple of drinks with a friend and then grab a six pack to go.This pub originally started as a bottle shop, home brew supply store and tasting room. It is now a full service restaurant. They serve 30 beers on tap, rotating the line up constantly, serving German, English and American craft beers.
Bad Water Brewing
Bad Water is another great place to grab a drink with a friend in old town Scottsdale. The Pub is located on Brown Ave and marks the spot for this great little find. Their slogan is, Sometimes bad decisions make great stories. Check Groupon for a little discount on the tasting flights. With only three signature beers and promise not to brew weak, the private selection leaves a little to be desired, but you can taste some of the other great options from around the area. The personally craft a lager, a saison and a sessional light IPA.
