I've made two visits to Beaver Street over the course of ~10 years. The first was a nightcap for a single pint. This time around, I stopped in with my wife and 10-month-old daughter after a day at the Grand Canyon (around 4:30 on a Wednesday).

I ordered half beers of...

Helles Bock
Octoberfest Marzen - outstanding, probably the best I've had
Hop Harvest which was not as "syrupy" as others I've had.

My wife had the raspberry ale which we both enjoyed.

We had an appetizer of sweet potato fries and one of the pizzas. The food was good.

They are a sister brewery to Lumberyard which we visited the next night. If I had to pick one, I'd go with Lumberyard as they had a lot of the same beers and more beers which were more interesting and more up my alley.

Must try their Sweet Potato fry's! They also have a fairly good meatloaf.

We summer in Flagstaff from Phoenix.

Another great spot, except for coffee, is across the street at Macy's.

A point so history - - The building that Beaver Street Brewery is located in used to be a neighborhood grocery market.

Lastly, if you are a fan of Mexican breakfasts, and know Chilequiles, then you absolutely must, And I mean absolutely must, go to MartAnnes. It will change your life.

Cool place located in the downtown Flagstaff area. James our server did an awesome job .

Beer selection on tap was limited to Lumberjack offerings. Did not ask about the bottle selection. Nothing noted on the menu.

The Beaver St burger was very tasty, although came as medium rare rather than medium as ordered. The missus order the pretzel w/cream cheese and spicy mustard sauces. She wasn't over-thrilled. The bread pudding w/chocolate sauce was delicious!

Good value for the money and would return AFTER trying the other brewpubs in town.

Located just across the main Hwy from downtown Flagstaff, this is a medium sized place with a pretty standard brewpub atmosphere. They are apparently related to Lumberyard brewing company down the street and seem to have much of the same beer selection. This means they have some of the best beer in the area and everything that I had at Beaver Street was good.

Service was good enough, our bartender seemed to be under training but the place was mostly empty so everything worked out fine there. The beer selection was good with a larger selection than one would expect to find at most well established brewpubs and they even had some of their limited release beers available in bottles to take home.

Stopped at the Beaver St. Brewery on our way to the Grand Canyone from Scottsdale, good half way point. It was the start to a nice little beer tour of flagstaff, with another stop at the Lumberyard, Beaver St.'s sister production brewery down the street.

We entered from the side parking lot side; setup from this entrance is the bar to your right with about 15 seats and the dining room to the front and left and kitchen to the far left. Brewery operations are setup behind the bar to the right from this entrance. One offputing feature is the carpeted floors, not exactly ideal for an establishment that serves mass amounts of liquids. Anyway, the food and beer far outweight this downside.

I think we were the first customers of the day, at just before noon, which made it a bit subdued but it warmed up as the lunchtime crowd filled in.

Quality of the serving of food and beer was well worth noting. Beers were served in appropriate glassware and the food was all done well with generous portions.

Service was great, very knowledgeable of the beer selection with some good suggestions for pairings.

Beer selection was great, about 10 or so on draft. I tried the Helles Bock which was great presentation of this style. Other beers to note were the pale ale, IPA, and stout.

Food was great, everyone of the 6 of us enjoyed our meals. The brewer's wurst plate is a feature to take note of.

Very good value, reasonable beer and food prices make this a great experience.

I've been a fan of this joint since before I could drink.

The food is great. They rock a woodfired pizza oven and make great personal pies. Also, if you're really hungry, grab the brewer's platter... It's wurst heaven.

Beer wise it's pretty decent. I have had two different IPAs there... both being ok. The R&R stout is tasty. Also had a tripel there that wasn't bad. The Railhead Red is ok too.

Not really a knock your socks of beer experience, but overall a great place to dine and drink.

Outfitted to look like a train station it sort of fails at that. It's too nice inside to be a train station. There's a big pot belly wood-burning stove near the front where you can sit and warm up (if need be) while waiting to be seated.

The beers and specials are well-noted throughout the restaurant so you don't even need to have your waitperson explain them to you.

The food is really good. Their signature burger is really tasty and their soft pretzels make for great appetizers. Their sandwiches are also inventive and tasty and they are kid-friendly with a decent menu for them. The kitchen is pretty open so you can look into pretty easily. That kind of confidence in their food prep is impressive.

The beer is really good. The Hop Shot IPA and the R&R Oatmeal Stout were my favorites, but the Hefeweizen was a little lacking as I have found all hefeweizens in the Western US to be.

They say that their cobbler is "divine" or "awesome" depending on which menu board you read, but the one I had (peach-blueberry) was not. The topping was mealy and the blueberries overpowered the peaches entirely. I love blueberries but I had expected a balance with the peaches and got none.

Overall a great experience for a great price. Two adults, two kids and a baby...three beers, one appetizer, two kids meals, two entrees, two kids desserts and one adult dessert all for under $90, including a good tip.
