I've got nothing but great things to say about Boulders. It was the very first place I visited that really showed me there are bars that care about beer and the people who drink it. If I'm going anywhere, Boulders is isually the first place I'll consider (due to it's proximity to my home). Not only do you get a solid beer lineup but the food is killer. Swing by for your hangover cure in the AM on Sat/Sun because they've got a great brunch menu and the service is always excellent.

Overall, a great place. Knowledgable bartenders,
good food. No weasel spit. A really good place to explore unknown beers. The food is good and fast. Not too busy considering how close it is to ASU. A must visit if you are in the southeast valley of Phoenix.

Ski lodge meets sports bar vibe. Dark, tall ceilings, with an irregular shaped floor plan. Four tops and booths with seating both upstairs and downstairs. Went there on a Thursday for a beer and some food. Not many people there. A mix of interesting and WTF beers (should I get the Mikkeller or the Coors?). Enough to choose from, though, I was able to find 2 or 3 beers that were interesting. Service was good, knowledgeable staff. Food was OK. I had a roasted veggie sandwich and shared nachos. Overall, not a bad place, but not terribly interesting. Would I go back? Probably, there aren't a whole lot of places in the immediate area and it would be a good place for a beer and, maybe, a bite. Definitely worth a visit if you're close by and have never been. Would I make it a regular stop if I frequently visited Tempe? I think the beer list might grow old unless there was regular rotation. The number of macros was a bit surprising. And the food was just OK.

There was a strange odor when we arrived. Like maybe a vacuum cleaner's bag needing replacement. This was a minor deal really. The menu is extensive and the beer selection is great. The wait staff was all friendly, polite and quick. If you're ever in Tempe check it out. We went here for lunch. I bought an appetizer to share and it was called Classic Bar Stuff, a sampler of fried zucchini, cheese sticks, onion rings, and wings with a couple of dipping sauces. For my main course I got a Grilled Pesto Chicken sandwich with waffle fries. Very nice! I ordered a lemonade first as we walked a ways to get here and then I ordered For Peaks Hefeweizen. It was well worth the long walk in the hot sun to find this oasis in the desert!

My favorite place in Tempe to grab a beer. I love the selection here or atleast it satisfies my taste buds. I have come across some good finds here. The do have a decent selection of seasonals and limiteds in the cooler. I love the service here, fun knowledgeable bartenders make for a good time. Food is alright, nothing special but does the job. I have to say I've never left disappointed. My favorite bar right along with papago. Location is great too. 5 minutes from the heart of Tempe and asu. Also can't wait for evil twins yin and yang on Monday!

On of my favorite places in the valley to grab a bit & a couple pints. I mainly like this place because of the excellent customer service, friendly environment, good food & great tap selections..

This place has a huge dinning area with a bar that seats around 8-10.. I believe its got around 28 taps with a decent bottle list.. the taps have seen the likes of Hopslam, The Abyss, Odell Bourbon Barrel Stout, Burton Baton & other great brews.. the usual suspects here are Left Hand Milk Stout, Bells Two Hearted, Stone IPA, Titan IPA, & other great regional brews. Lots of rotating stuff from Odell, Ska, NB, Rock Art, SA, Bear Republic & all the local AZ brews.

food is pretty tasty. Popular are their pizzas.. they also offer sandwiches, burgers, bar food, & some italian dishes..

Service is excellent! Good friendly environment.
