This secondary location of Four Peaks is located in the extreme northern section of Scottsdale in a strip mall directly behind a Chuck-E-Cheese want-to-be. It's a great sports bar. A patio opens into the main seating room via a garage-door-style set of window panes. The layout maximizes the small amount of floor space and there is a TV on absolutely every wall in the place meaning there is nowhere you can't see one - even from the balcony that also features a pool table.
We walked in during a Minnesota Vikings playoff game, which was apparently a mistake, because this is obviously a Vikings bar. The place was packed with purple people eaters sporting Four Peaks/Vikings shirts.
I didn't get a chance to try the food as we left at halftime. But I was very impressed by the assortment of interesting pizza toppings. I definitely would have stacked one up with some spinach, pine nuts, buffalo mozzarella, portabellas, goat cheese, pesto and sun dried tomatoes.
The beers are - of course - the same as the main location. They haven't changed much since I visited last year. The Raj IPA is still the best choice along with a decent stout on nitro and a crowd-pleasing Scottish called a Kilt Lifter. Same scores for beer.
The service was bad that night, but I don't blame them, they were packed and we weren't eating.
Overall, I would come here to watch a game every single time.

I stopped in here for dinner with my daughter after a long day of travel and unpacking. We were hungry and thirsty and this place hit the mark on both counts.
We got a table outside, enjoying the 70 degree temps on an early February afternoon. Service was a bit slow to start but the team approach of the service staff soon started clicking. Once we ordered a beer sampler and nachos, life was much better.
I guess the beers are all brewed at the other Four Peaks in Tempe. Whatever the case, the sample was 8 beers deep and generally a cut above the typical brewpub lineup. The Hop Knot was what I came for, and my favorite, but all the others were quite good, even the Peach Wheat, which my daughter enjoyed the most.
The food hit the spot for two very hungry travelers, but on the whole was not all that impressive. Pub grub menu is fine but execution was a bit sloppy (e.g. unmelted cheese on the nachos) and the food a bit greasy, even the grilled chicken.
I'd try the food again, and would go for the beer anytime. Looking forward to hitting the main location on a futre trip. This stop was perfect for this visit.

This is a great place in North Scottsdale to grab a beer and food while watching the game or relaxing without spending a fortune. Four Peaks produces quality beer, especially if looking for a local AZ brewery. Hop Knot IPA is my favorite beer of theirs, and the kolsch, Sunbru, is very tasty when it's over 100 outside in the summer. The food is nothing special but it's decent and around $12 for an entree. A relaxed atmosphere, this place is great for both beer enthusiasts and the average consumer alike. There needs to be more places like this in Phoenix.

Another stop on our trip to AZ; atmosphere is interesting, located in another strip mall in scottsdale, enter through main door with the bar infront and wrapping to the left with swath of tables behind. Outdoor patio has a few tables, and is where we ended up sitting since the weather was just right. Good setup with some space heaters and shades and tv.
Quality was average, beer served appropriately, outdoor seating was good atmospher but plastic chairs, food was ok and service was average.
Service was standard, nothing out of the ordinary, beer knowledge was not apparent.
Selection was good, they had their standard brews plus a few seasonals that were nice to try. Last time we were in AZ we stopped by the main brewery and the beers wer up to the quality that I had then.
Food was average, my brother, father and I all had standard fare that was ok, fish and chips were just average and the meals they had appeared the same.
value was reasonable, nothing was priced out of the ordinary.

This brewpub and restaurant was my last stop before my return flight home. Like most places in AZ, it is located in a strip mall. The space is quite large...extremely high ceilings, 2 floors of seating, indoor tables, outdoor tables, and a really long bar. The second floor balcony is built to hang above the first floor bar. This gives you a nice country saloon feel when sitting at the bar. The Hop Knot on cask was the best beer I found in Arizona. The food menu was fairly interesting and the quality was good for the price. The prices were very reasonable for Scottsdale. This is the place I'd choose to go to if I was with a group of friends / family and wanted to eat and drink. If I was just going out for some pints I'd probably hit up Papago.

I stopped in to this establishment a couple times. The options on tap are many, however, the styles are rather similar. I ordered a sampler and it was served with 10 to 12 pours, which, in and of itself is great. That being said, the styles were really limited. I got a couple pale ales, some darker ales, IPAs, lighter brews and a two seasonals.
I do suggest you make a stop here if you venture out in Scottsdale. The service is solid, the atmosphere is inviting, the brews are good, and the price is right.

I've only been to this establishment twice now. The general appearance is nice, but the parking isn't ideal. There are only perhaps 20 or so spots near the entrance, so one usually has to park at the adjacent parking lot. Having to spend the extra 20 to 30 seconds walking outside in Arizona heat is worth taking note of.
The inside is nice, and there is a quaint little patio out front which would be pleasant during winter months. The selection is a little skewed, but that's understandable since it's a bar and grill for the brewery. Their own beers are good, and you have the choice of purchasing tap, bottles, six-packs or growlers.
When I ate/drank at the bar, the service was very good, but if you go upstairs and drink/eat on their deck, the service is understandably a bit slower.
The food is very good, but a little pricey. I've heard that the quesadillas are not that great, but I can't speak for myself on that. The fries are great, as are the soft pretzels.
They have a seasonal peach beer right now that I think goes very well with the fries and works well as a nice summer ale. Next time I go I'll bring a pad and pencil so I can do a proper review of it.

Atmosphere had a very cool southwest brewpub feel. Cozy bar with rustic overhead beams, decent patio also. I went on a night during a NBA Suns game. There was a good turnout, but not overpacked, grabbed a seat at the bar right away, enjoyed the local brew and excitment.
Had a nice chat with a local. Enjoyed a nice fresh Hop Knot IPA -awesome IPA for sure.
Quality seemed very fresh for a hoppy brew, food looked awesome and the local swears by the food. Noticeably clean lines, glasses, and bar. They rinse prep all glasses.
Service was attentive and cordial. Selection includes 8 house brews, 1 cask, and 1 seasonal barleywine.
Value was reasonable at $4 a pint, prolly a steal at $3 during happy hour.

I was in the are, so stopped by here instead of the main Four Peaks closer to the hotel. The beer is the same, and everything was fresh, so I only missed the beneficial corruption that comes from brewers walking about. This is a large restaurant, though with a second level of tables it didn't immediately register. Very large round bar. Bartendress knew something about the beer, which is something. Decent quality of the beers, with two IPAs and some seasonals, so I can see the popularity of the beers in the local scene.
