25 Awesome Phoenix Breweries to Sample Local Craft Beers

If you love craft beer, then you are going to love this list of amazing Phoenix breweries. You'll find options near downtown and in several popular surrounding suburbs and towns.

The temperatures in Phoenix can get HOT! There is a reason that it is nicknamed "The Valley of the Sun." It's just one of the reasons that my husband and I LOVE to check out the local breweries. It's a great way to cool down on those warm days.

Our list is organized by location, so you can find some local brews that are close to home or where you are staying.

Let's raise a pint, give a hardy "Cheers!" and get down to the best breweries in Phoenix.

Pictures of Two Phoenix Breweries

Feel free to jump ahead to the area you plan to visit:

In and Around Phoenix

1. Greenwood Brewing Company

A flight of four beers from Greenwood Brewing Company.A flight of four beers from Greenwood Brewing Company.

This Phoenix brewery is located near downtown Phoenix in the Roosevelt Row district. It's owned and operated by head brewer Megan Greenwood.

The brewery invites you to come in and try a "purposeful pint" since this is a new idea, and they want to spread the word to others that anyone can own a brewery and create craft beer. Some of their beers include the Herstory Pale Ale, Harvest Diem Spiced Ale, and the fruited sours.

The interior is smaller but fun, with a beautiful wooden bar, cool upholstered seats, and a marble backsplash. Our favorite is hanging out in their outdoor garden. Even on warm days, it's a great place to cool off with a nice pint.

While they don't serve their own food, you can bring your own from a nearby restaurant or food truck.

Greenwood Brewing Company's Phoenix taproom is located at 425 East Roosevelt Street and is open 7 days a week.

2. Helton Brewing Company

Helton Brewing Company is a great find in the heart of Phoenix. Their tasty beers are crafted by Brewmaster Brian Helton, who is a Certified Cicerone (the equivalent of a sommelier in the wine world).

He has won numerous World Beer Cup Awards, Great American Beer Festival Awards, and more. This gives you a little idea of what you can expect from his beers.

Some of the beers you will find here on tap all year long include the Scotch Ale, the Milk Stout (Aram absolutely loves this one), and the Boysenberry Sour (again, my type of beer!). We also love them since they experiment with new styles constantly. They always have 11 beers on tap, so you'll have lots to choose from here.

We love to sit on their outdoor patio with a brew and enjoy some of their tasty menu items. Their Cuban Sandwich is a great option, as well as their Taproom Nachos.

There is also a vegan food truck here most nights from 5 pm to 9 pm.

A nice note is that they also do a lot of charity work, so you know you'll be helping others as you enjoy your brews.

The brewery is located in what used to be an old tire shop, so the atmosphere is pretty cool and fun. It is located at 2144 East Indian School Road and is open 7 days a week.

3. Simple Machine Brewing Company

Opened in 2019, Simple Machine brewing company proudly states they only use four ingredients to brew their beers: water, barley, hops, and yeast. You might be wondering where the name came from, and that is a good question.

As much as beer lovers like to taste every little ingredient, it was decided that sometimes just drinking beer, with simple joy, was all that mattered at the moment.

Owner and brewmaster Marshall Norris is proud to say that he started with a simple home brewing kit, realized it wasn't the best, but that he was hooked, and it inspired him to keep going, learning more. He has now become one of the best brewers in the Phoenix area.

Some of his most popular beers include the Double Darkside of the Mash, Uh-Duh-Noh, and Barrel O' Cherries, one of their fruited sours.

They don't have a kitchen, but they often have food trucks, and there are events such as trivia, live music, and more. Bring along your doggy friends, as they are welcome on the outdoor patio.

It is easy to find as it is located just across the road from the Deer Valley Airport at 701 West Deer Valley Road, Suite 1, about 30 minutes north of the Phoenix city center. It is open Tuesday thru Sunday and closed on Mondays.

4. Kitsune Brewing Co.

Another one of the top Phoenix breweries is Kitsune Brewing Co.

The story of Kitsune is really quite wonderful. Mr. Smith was a home brewer and wanted to work on a "Black is Beautiful" beer. Many breweries were producing this nationwide to help promote civil rights and police reform. When Mr. Smith contacted Simple Machine Brewing Company, they were all in!

After working with them, Mr. Smith realized he wanted to do something more and started Kitsune Brewing Co. His brewery opened on October 7th, 2022.

Since then, his business has blossomed, and some of our favorites include the Luminescence Hazy IPA using Mosaic hops, Kakigori sour, and the 3YR Kistune Collab (a craft beer collaboration with other Arizona brewers).

It is located at 3321 East Bell Road, Suite B-5, about 25 minutes north of downtown Phoenix. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday.

5. Tombstone Brewing Company

Owner Matt Brown originally opened in Tombstone's rough and tumble town, known as the "Town Too Tough to Die," in 2016. In a very short time, Tombstone Brewing became so beloved around the state that he headed north and opened a location here in the heart of the Valley of the Sun.

Even though Tombstone is a small operation, it is still one of the best breweries in Phoenix. Some of our favs include the Tombstone IPA, Festbier, and the Raspberry Berliner.

We especially love that head brewer Weedy Weidenthal makes a few barley wines. Beer lovers know that barley wines are few and far between, so get them while you can!

As for food options, you are in for a treat! Some of their offerings include quesadillas, burgers, and the always delicious Fire Roasted Piquillo Pepper Cheese! In our opinion, there is nothing better than pairing it with a nice cold craft beer!

Their brewery is small with no outdoor area, but the indoor does have TVs and rollup doors for when the weather is nice. This is the perfect place to "Eat, Drink, Chill," just as it says on their website. It is located at 3935 East Thomas Road, about 20 minutes northeast of downtown Phoenix and is open 7 days a week.

Note: Staying true to his Arizona roots, owner Matt Brown also has the original Tombstone Brewing Company brewery and taproom at 107 E. Toughnut Street in the tiny 1,500-person city of Tombstone.

It is about 3 hours southeast of Phoenix and is open 7 days a week.

6. Roses By The Stairs Brewing

Roses by the Stairs opened in 2020 and is one of the newest breweries in the Phoenix beer scene. In that short amount of time, they are quickly making a name for themselves in the Phoenix and Arizona brewing world. The taproom was opened in 2022, this is one of the newest in the city.

The brewpub is located in their brewery, so you can see them working away in front of you and enjoy their great beers. Since Roses is a smaller operation, they have a limited number of styles, but all are excellent.

Some of the favorites include This is Growing Up, an IPA with candied mango, peach, and lemon-lime soda notes. Another is their Wanders in Overcoats, a Saison with flavors of lemongrass, peppercorns, and wildflowers!

The others are just as interesting and innovative. Trust us, you'll love it here.

They have many fun events, live music and comedians, and weekly events that you'll want to check out. They don't have a kitchen, so they have food trucks most of the week to satisfy your hunger.

Another great thing about this brewery is that they donate 1% of their income to help keep our planet safe and healthy.

Note: The name is from the song "All The Small Things" by Blink 182.

Roses by the Stairs is located in the heart of Phoenix at 509 West. McDowell Road. They are open 7 days a week.

7. Wren House Brewing Company

You will immediately feel like you are stepping back in time when you enter this cute 1930s bungalow. Located in the Green Gables neighborhood, you can still see its exposed bricks and the wooden slats and beams in the ceiling. It definitely has a rustic feel, but the newer parts of the taproom are just as cool.

We love that Wren House makes fun and locally inspired craft beers, including the Lost Dutchman Golden Ale, the Twisted Barrel Bourbon Porter, and the Big Spill Pils. Since I prefer fruited sours, I love their Fas Frescas, which changes every week or so.

I also love their Hi Jolly Honey Wheat Beer when it is available.

They don't serve food, but you can bring in your own.

Unlike most breweries and taprooms, they don't have TVs as they want patrons to meet each other, become friends, and feel like locals even on their first visit. They are also dog friendly, so feel free to bring Fido along with you.

Wren House Brewing Company is located at 2125 North 24th Street and is open Monday thru Saturday and closed on Sunday.

NOTE: Parking is a bit limited, so take your time. Also, do not park in the liquor store; you will most likely get towed.

East Side: Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler

8. Fate Brewing Company

Fried Chicken Sandwich with Tater Tots at the Fate Brewing Company.Fried Chicken Sandwich with Tater Tots at the Fate Brewing Company.

Fate Brewing Company is another gem with two locations on the east side. They started their first brewery in 2012 and then opened the second as they grew in popularity.

These breweries are well-known for their fantastic brews, such as the Hatch Chili Gatos, the Pueblo Vienna Lager, and many IPAs on tap.

But we love them because they have seasonal brews, so we always have something new to sample. They also have wine, cocktails, and soft drinks for the little ones.

In addition to their delicious brews, something that Aram and I love is their delicious food menu that will make you want to stay all day. I personally love tater-tots, so I love to order their Fried Chicken Sandwich with tater-tots on the side. As you can see from the picture above, they were amazing.

They have indoor and outdoor dining.

The location for Fate Brewing Company in Tempe is 201 East Southern Avenue. The South Scottsdale Brewery at 1312 North Scottsdale Road.

Both locations are open 7 days a week.

9. Perch Brewing Company

Not only is Perch Brewing Company a beer lover's dream, but it is also a bird lover's dream!

First, we'll start with the delicious locally brewed beers. They have over 30 craft beers on tap and are always trying new and different combinations to quench your thirst. 

Now for the bird lovers. They house more than 50 colorful, tropical rescue birds here, including Macaws, Cockatoos, and Parrots. It's unlike any other brewery in Phoenix!

Their beers include the Burd Light, Basics of Flight, Mating Dance, and more fun bird-brained names.

They also have an amazing rooftop bar with excellent views around downtown Chandler.

It is a wonderful location to enjoy some seasonal brews, eat delicious food, and relax. They also serve a full menu of cocktails and have a full bar.

It is located at 232 South Wall Street in Chandler and is open 7 days a week.

10. The Shop Beer Company

This is one of the more eclectic breweries in the Phoenix metro. The reason we love it is that their tape room is set inside the former historic home of Harry Mitchell, who was once the Mayor of Tempe and a U.S. Representative.

When they transitioned it from a residence to their tap room, they decided to keep some of the styles and add their flair, which makes having a beer here a unique and fun experience.

They were voted Best Brewery in the Phoenix New Times for 2020, so you know they have great craft beer to sample. The staff is always friendly and will give you lots of suggestions and the food is excellent.

They have a limited selection of their beers, but some of our favs include the Neonic Orange Julius (makes us feel like kids again!), the Barrel Rodeo Imperial Stout, and the beer they are most known for, the Church Music IPA. This isn't any old hazy IPA since it is infused with pineapple juice!

They have a nice-sized outdoor patio they call "The Backyard" since that is exactly what it was back in the day. So, if you want to sound like a local, use that term instead. The whole bar, and backyard, are decorated with cool and crazy art and designs. 

They do not have a kitchen, but there are food trucks most of the time. Lastly, this is one of the only Phoenix breweries that will let you check inside where the beer they make their beer! If you've never been inside a brewery or seen fermentation tanks, you are in for a real treat.

The Shop Beer Company is located at 922 West 1st Street in Tempe and is open 7 days a week.

11. Cider Corps

This is the perfect stop for all cider lovers! Not only do they make ciders, but they also combine their ciders with beers to give it more of a kick. They sometimes even add wine or other ingredients to them to give them a unique taste.

They usually have more than 15 ciders on tap. They also offer pizza, so you have some great to nibble on while you enjoy your beers.

Their beers include Charlie Bravo Peixoto, which has coffee added to it, Special Forces Peach Apricot, and the Caramel Apple Slushie, among numerous others.

As you might have noticed, most of the drinks have a military connection. Owner and Cidermaster Jason Duron is a vet. He had two brain injuries while serving in Afghanistan, and his medical team suggested he try a new hobby to help him heal.

So, he and his brother John started brewing cider at home in small batches. After a few years, they decided to try and make it a business. They wanted to ensure that veterans would be remembered and celebrated for their service.

They were recently named one of the top 3 cideries in the USA!

They are located at 31 South Robson Suite 103 in Mesa, and they are open 7 days a week.

12. West Brewing Company - Downtown Mesa

West Brewing Company started in a small tap room inside its original location in Gilbert, just a short drive away from this one. The locals and tourists loved it, but it was limited in space, and the team wanted to expand into a full-fledged brewery and restaurant.

This location is huge, has 15 beers on tap, and features a full bar with cocktails, wine, and more. They have a full kitchen with much more than your usual pub fare. Some of our favorite beers include the Blap!Blap! Belgian Wheat with blood orange puree, or when we need a little kick, the Midnight Run Coffee Stout.

Sports fans will love that they have TEN 62-inch TV screens. If you bring the little ones, they have cards and board games. There is also a beer garden, and they are dog friendly if you want to enjoy the weather and bring Fido along with you. Live music is played from Thursday through Sunday.

The Downtown Mesa West Brewing Company is located at 12 West Main Street and is open Tuesdays through Sundays.

NOTE: The Gilbert Tap Room is inside the "BARNONE" building at 3000 East Ray Road, Building 6, Suite 110. It is open 7 days a week. They do not serve food, but there are restaurants nearby where you can order. 

13. Four Peaks Brewing Company

Four Peaks is a great choice anytime you want a good cold beer. They have three locations in the Phoenix Metro.

They are known for the Kilt Lifter beer, which has won many awards at the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup. They have since partnered with Anheuser-Busch to export it worldwide.

Some of our other favorites include their Kuhl Beans Vanilla Stout, the Tea Shot, and the Hopsquatch Bound Red IPA. We absolutely love this location, which is inside a 100-year-old former creamery. Not only that, but it was also home to Uranus Recording, which had bands such as the Gin Blossoms, Stevie Nicks, The Rembrandts, and others.

The second location is their Wilson Tasting Room and event space. Being that they are the largest production brewery in Arizona, they need a big space, and this one holds over 100 people.

The 8th Street at 1340 East 8th Street, #104 in Tempe, is open 7 days a week. The Wilson Tasting Room is at 2401 S. Wilson Street in Tempe. Last but not least, the Phoenix Airport location is at Terminal 4, Gate A20.

14. Goldwater Brewing Co. - 3 East Side Locations

Two brothers and a home brew kit over 20 years ago are where Goldwater Brewing Co. first sprouted from the minds of Chad & Dillian McClelland and their dad, Greg. After life took them in many different directions, including traveling the world, the boys and family member Jimmy Disken built a brewery to allow them to share their liquid "Goldwater" with everyone else.

The Scottsdale taproom and brewery opened in 2015, and they started to build a name for themselves with brews such as the Hop Chowda Hazy IPA, SamuRice Lager (Japanese style), and Mango Foxtrot cider. Since you know Jill loves her fruited sours, her go-to is the Go Go Sour Rangers - Megazord.

All three locations have been decorated with a lot of fun and humor, so you'll love hanging out and digging the local beer scene. None of the locations have a restaurant, but there often are food trucks or restaurants nearby where you can grab and go.

The original brewery and tap room is located at 3608 N. Scottsdale Road.

As their business has grown, they've expanded to an east Mesa at 5942 East Longbow Pkwy. The new Tempe tap room is also at 9895 South Priest Drive.

All three locations are open 7 days a week.

Something we love is that depending on the venue, you will get different options of beers on tap. Therefore, you can go from one to another and have something totally new when you visit Phoenix.

15. Beer Research Institute

As the Beer Research Institute likes to point out, this isn't home or work; it is a "Third place" that is local, independent, and a special place to meet others and build a community. It's the exact feeling you get, especially since they started brewing in their garage in 2003.

With the name "Beer Research Institute," you know these folks are gonna be one of the most inventive Phoenix breweries anywhere in the city. You will love the education you'll get gen when drinking their great beers. Some of the most popular include the Vamonos Mexican Lager, Boom Box Orange Mango Guava Sour, and the Rice Krispy Bois, a wonderful day-drinker light lager.

If you are looking for food, you need not study any more than just looking at the menu. With choices such as Chicharrones, the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, and their amazing "Last Call" ever-changing cheesecake flavor, you are in for a treat!

The main taproom is designed with brick walls, and the bar is lit underneath with the coolest neon lights around. You can hang out and watch the folks at work with the fermentation tanks and other brewing processes.

It is located at 1641 S. Stapley Drive in Mesa.

Now, for those of you who love video games and pinball, you will definitely want to hit the Taproom & Arcade. This is a 4,000-square-foot location with over 40 classic games from the 80s and 90s and all kinds of amazing BRI and guest beers.

16. Papago Brewing Company

Papago Orange Blossom

Opened in 2001, Papago is known as one of the originals for brewing here in Phoenix and in Arizona overall. When they got into trouble, Huss Brewing Company stepped in to save them and purchased them in 2016.

Even though Huss owns them, they are still their own "label." It's one of the reasons Huss decided to open a tasting room under their name in East Mesa Grande. It is beautifully designed and has a clean and stylish interior.

As for their beers, their most famous is the Papago Orange Blossom, which is a light wheat ale. Other faves include the Petrus Sour Framboise, Speedway Stout: Salted Caramel Brownie, and the Voodoo Ranger Juice Force. They have over 60 craft beers on a rotating basis for you to enjoy.

The menu is similar to Huss Brewing Company's, with sausages, paninis, and pizza pies.

It is located at Papago Brewing Company at 1033 N Dobson Rd #104, Mesa and is open 7 days a week.

17. SanTan Brewing Company

SanTan Brewing Company is a popular spot on the eastern side of the Phoenix Metro area. They have three locations: two in Chandler and one in Sky Harbor Airpot. In addition to their brews, you can check out their spirits, which they started making a decade ago or so.

We love that they do everything they can to be environmentally conscious when buying their ingredients.

Some of their beers include the Juicy Jack Hazy IPA made with Mosaic hops, the Epicenter Amber Ale, and their SanTan Hefeweizen. They also produce a lot of seasonal brews, so you can always get something exciting and new.

As mentioned, they also make spirits, and these include bourbons and whiskeys. If you want something totally original, try their vodka and whiskey sodas. They are fantastic.

The food menu includes classics like quesadillas, nachos, and great apps. They also have salads, sandwiches, tacos, pizzas, and other delicious bites.

The three locations include the SanTan Brewpub and Spirit House at 8 S. San Marcos Place, suite 106 in Chandler. The second location is just 10 minutes away from the above location, with live music and a great outdoor beer scene. Last but not least is the restaurant in Sky Harbor Airport in Terminal 3.

West Side

18. The 8-Bit Aleworks

Gamers of a certain age will immediately understand why they named this "The 8-Bit Aleworks." This small craft brewery has about 50 seats and offers video games for its patrons. These include Super Nintendo, NES, tabletop, and other arcade games.

The couple that owns it, Ryan and Krystina Whitten, grew up loving and playing video games. They were working in careers that had nothing to do with brewing but fell in love with it, so they decided to combine the two.

Since they don't come from a traditional beer-making background, they try to do something wild with each beer.

They brew the beer, design all the merchandise, write the content, and work together as a true team. You will meet them as they are always behind the bar, serving you some of their video game-named brews such as "The Legend of Zymur IPA," "The Black Mage Stout," and a few others.

If you want to escape the beeping and buzzing, they have a patio outside for you to hang out on and enjoy yourself. If you want to keep on feeling the video game feel, check out their specially designed cans. Trust us; you'll get a laugh and love them.

It is located at 1050 North Fairway Drive, Building F, in Avondale, and is open 7 days a week.

19. Peoria Artisan Brewery

Another great find on the western side is the Peoria Artisan Brewery. This family-owned spot produces small batches of craft beer served alongside their authentic, scratch cuisines.

Their standard beers are almost always on tap, including their Savannah Marie IPA, the Push Mower Blonde Ale, and the Honeysuckle Street Amber Ale. They also have a rotating selection of limited edition and seasonal beers, such as their Peanut Butter Porter, Oktoberfest Lager, and Monsoon Juice (one of our favorites).

Their food menu is just as interesting, with a variety of tasty dishes. Everything is made in-house, including their dressings and sauces, and they source their ingredients locally. Some of our favorites are their Buffalo Cauli, their Lake Pleasant Cho Salad, and their PAB Burger.

They also have a wonderful Sunday Brunch from 11 am to 3 pm with a Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar.

You will find them at 10144 W. Lake Pleasant Pkwy in Peoria.

Multiple Locations

20. Huss Brewing Company

Huss Brewing Company beer tasters

Huss Brewing Company is one of the largest and best breweries in Arizona. They are proud to be family owned by Jeff and Leah Huss, who used to deliver their beer in an old F-150 truck.

They started their original brewery in 2013 and continue to grow and develop new styles instead of always staying with the usuals.

They are known for their flagship beer, the Scottsdale Blonde ale, which is a German-style Kolsch. Other top beers include their Magic In The Ivy Pale Ale, The Husstler Seasonal Milk Stout, and, of course, Jill's favorite fruited sours.

They also offer fantastic food, including pizzas, paninis, brats, and much more.

They have three locations in Phoenix. The Downtown PHX Brewpub + To Go is perfect if you want to hang out or buy some of their cans to take with you. It's our favorite place to go as they have a cute outdoor area.

The other Phoenix location is their Uptown Taproom + Kitchen. It also has a large area to hang out and great food and beer. Last but not least is their Tempe Taproom, which doesn't have a kitchen, but you are welcome to bring your own food.

The downtown location is at 225 East Monroe in the heart of the city. The Uptown Taproom is 100 E. Camelback Road, #160, and the Tempe Taproom is 1520 W. Mineral Road, Suite 102. All locations are open 7 days a week.

21. O.H.S.O.

For those that know or want to know, Arizona is a cycling mecca. The climate is perfect all year round, so some of the best cyclists come from all over the world to train here.

The owners of this Phoenix brewery got their idea when they were cycling around the state with friends. They were all looking for a great place to gather in a fun, beer-focused environment. Now, they own four locations throughout the Phoenix metro.

Some of the flagship beers here include the Bob's Your Dunkel lager, the Lost Viking Nitro Porter, and the Popcycle Blonde Ale. They also offer a great selection of food for both lunch and dinner. You'll find everything from snacks to salads to burgers and more.

They recently won numerous awards at Great American Beer Festival, so you know you are in for a treat. And because they have 4 different locations, you've got many great options.

The main one is the Downtown Gilbert location at 335 North Gilbert Road, with the others in Phoenix's Arcadia District, Paradise Valley, and North Scottsdale. They also own Little O's at 4910 East Indian School, which is right next to their brewery and offers a full-service market/restaurant with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

All have fun games, events, and more to check out.

Some of their locations have distilleries onside that are connected to the brewery. These produce interesting spirits featuring Cranberry, Jalapenos, and even Horseradish (trust us, try it, and you'll love it!).

Fun Fact: O.S.H.O. means "Outrageous Home Brewer's Social Outpost." With a name like that, you know you are in for a good time.

22. The PHX Beer Co.

With three Phoenix locations, you will surely find one that fits your style and drinking desires. The name comes from their favorite city in the world, Phoenix, and it shows as they only use fresh and local ingredients for their beers.

Their first location is their brewery and taproom in Scottsdale. It is a total blast as it has almost everything you could imagine inside a brewery with barrels, a bar, and even cornhole games for those who want a little fun and games with their beers.

We love that you can get a special "brewery tour" package to see their fermentation tanks, have 4 tasters, a t-shirt, and some snacks.

The Lakeside restaurant is their second location. As expected, it is right on a lake with amazing food, beer, and a beautiful view. They have wings, burgers, pizzas, and much more. Their "Hoppy Hour" and weekend brunch are not to be missed!

Lastly, the PHX Sky Harbor Restaurant is the perfect place to relax when you are waiting for your flight or need a brew when you arrive.

Their beers are delicious, and some of Aram's and my favorites include the Zanjero Juicy Hazy IPA, Bird City Blonde Lager, and Sunset Sour. As you can see, Jill is a huge fan of fruited sours. They also have numerous seasonal brews.

The brewery and tap room are located at 3002 East Washington Street in Phoenix. They are open from Tuesday to Sunday.

The Lakeside restaurant is at 8300 North Hayden Road in Scottsdale. They are open from Tuesday to Sunday.

The PHX airport location is in Terminal 3 and is open 7 days a week.

23. Arizona Wilderness Brewing

Arizona Wilderness Brewing is another favorite brewery of ours since it is dedicated to great beer and the environment. They work to use both sustainable brewing methods and ingredients to produce their beers.

Owner Jonathan Buford and Head brewmaster Patrick Ware achieve this using only Sinagua Malt, which is locally grown and uses less water. They also use hops that are drought-resistant to make their valley beer.

Most of their ingredients are locally grown and supplied!

Some of our favorite craft beers here include the Orange Desert Wheat and The Beer Saves Water. They have numerous fruited sours.

We love bringing people to the Arizona Wilderness Brewing because there are LOADS of options on their food menu, including vegetarian and vegan. You must try their duck-fat fries, too as they are out-of-this-world delicious.

The Gilbert Brewpub also has a nice beer garden. The interior is decorated in a really fun style, and you'll love visiting here. Again, they have an extensive menu that features everything you can imagine, along with vegetarian and vegan plates.

The two locations are the Gilbert Brewpub at 721 N. Arizona Avenue in Gilbert and the DTPHX Arizona Wilderness Brewing taproom and beer garden at 201 E. Roosevelt St. near downtown Phoenix. Both locations are open 7 days a week.

Note: Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company is the perfect place to go with friends who love the taste of beer but choose not to drink alcohol because they make the "ARIZO[NA] non-alcoholic IPA." It isn't 100% alcohol-free, as it is .5% ABV, but you would never know it.

24. State 48 Brewery

If you want variety, then make sure you check out State 48 Brewery. They have loads of taps here, so you can check out something that you know, such as an IPA or a nice day drinker light lager, or you could try something new, like a barleywine. 

Some of our favorites include classics such as the U.S. 60 Stout, Vortex Amber, and the Lost Dutchman Golden Ales. For those that want a lighter beer, you can try the Javelina Hefeweizen (if you don't know what a Javelina is, just ask). You can even see into their brewing operations from their cocktail area.

Something fun is that all their great beer is served in glasses ranging from a normal pint glass to a special State 48 glass and even to a Belgian goblet. How cool is that?

They constantly brew new brews, so find something original each time you visit. This is a great place if you, your friends, or your family are picky eaters. They have everything one could want, including a great kid's menu and many choices.

Their downtown Phoenix location is at 345 West Van Buren Street. It has lots of parking even if it is busy. Their other locations are in Gilbert, AZ.

25. Pedal Haus Brewery

All you need to know is that Pedal Haus Brewery won the "Best Brewery United States Copa Cervezas de Americas." Even though that should be enough, we'll tell you more about our experience so you know more about why you should visit one of our favorite Phoenix breweries.

As mentioned before, Arizona is a cyclists' heaven, and Julian Wright decided he wanted to bring together his love of cycling, beer, and community, so he started up Pedal Haus (Pedal House) brewery in 2015.

Since they have 4 locations around Phoenix, and each one offers different beer styles, you will have incredible options when you try their craft beers. Some of our favorites include the Kahvi Coffee Stout, the Biere Blanche Belgian wheat, and one that you'll not get anything like anywhere else, the Adult Soda Pop Hard Seltzer!

All their locations are open 7 days a week and have large indoor and outdoor areas with games and other fun things to do when you hang out there. The Tempe location has a full beer garden with TVs outside and events. It is located at 730 South Mill Avenue.

The main uptown Phoenix taproom location has 25 big-screen HD TVs, making it the perfect space to watch your favorite sporting events. It is located at 214 East Roosevelt St., just a few minutes from the city center.

The Chandler location has the largest patio and is a great place to hang out and relax. They also have a smaller bar/restaurant-only location at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in Terminal 4.
