Stopped in here just after lunch. Nice big space with tables down the middle, bar on the right and brewery on the left and back of the room. Atmosphere was hopping even for an early afternoon. People sitting all over the place, inside and out. Service was quite good. I never had to wait for a beer and my server made plenty of small talk with me to pass the down time. Quality was solid across the board. Food was quite good, beers were diverse and in the correct glasses. Selection was just ok. Only seven beers on at the time of my visit, while a good verity they were just ok. I got the pub pretzels since I didn't want anything big and they were really good and hit the spot well. Prices were on par with all of the other places I have visited in the last few days. Overall a decent enough brewpub that I would probably return to if I had some extra time in the area.

Santan has come into its own. Their new beer and special releases are setting a new pace for the brewery. Since they opened the production facility they have space to dabble in new styles and have been consistently great. I used to settle on going to santan but I know look forward to it. Their flagship line is solid. Their food is way above normal pub fare.

Last time we were in Phoenix we stopped in and had dinner. Our son had recommended Santan to us. This brewery is a sports bar and that is my biggest complaint about it. The TVs were so loud you really couldn't talk at all. It was very annoying not to be able to get away from the horrible noise. I mean really uncomfortable noise. Otherwise the service was excellent and the food was very good. I had fish and chips which I would order again if I can talk myself into going back there and have ear plugs with me. My husband had the Ribeye smoked dip wrap and loved it. Their beer selection was a little above average. I have been to many sports bars and have never been in one that was as noisy as this one. It really isn't necessary for the TVs to be so loud. Maybe out on the patio it would have been better but it was a cold night so inside seating was necessary.

Stopped here last Thursday night before picking up family at the Gateway Airport.

Atmosphere was good, very crowded on a early Thursday evening as we were able to get seated within 5 minutes because of our reservation. A patio is available along the perimeter of the building and all tables were occupied due to the lovely October temps. Indoors was loud with the buzz from the full house and the NFL football game. They also had the MLB playoff game on. I never made it up to the bar but it was of decent size in which occupants looked out onto the patio and street. The restaurant side is long and narrow with seating for maybe 150?

Quality of the beers we had was good. I was pleasantly surprised at how smackable the Belgian IPA was. The Negro Nitro was pretty good too. As usual Da Boss sticks with lower hopped brews in which Epicenter filled the bill.

Despite how crowded it was the service was outstanding as the ordering process was timely, consistent, and friendly. I took a couple of growlers in which one is ceramic and without the government label. The shift manager came over and told me he could not fill it in which i promptly presented a typewritten version in which he affixed for me...he must have thought i was an undercover Arizona DLLC agent! Kudos to him for being on top of things!

Selection of beers was decent as i believe they only carry house beers but i maybe wrong...but nonetheless they have a pretty good range of beers for all pallets.

The food was good. Da Boss had the fish tacos and i had the fish and chips. Both were well prepared and tasty.

Overall value was reasonable. We had 5 pints, 2 entrees, and filled 2 growlers for $76...not bad at all! Although SanTan is on the "other side of the world" as we live in north Phoenix, i would definitely go here again if i have reason to be on this side of the Valley of the Sun.
