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.
