My first stop of the day, just off the edge of ASU's campus which apparently makes it quite popular. Atmosphere was hopping, Lots of people sitting outside soaking up the nice weather, lots more sitting at the huge bar located right inside the door. The space is so much bigger than I was expecting, it looks like it just keeps going and going. Service was solid. I never had to wait for anything and he spent some time talking to me about PA since he noticed my shirt. Quality was pretty good. Selection was pretty good. I got the 8 beer sampler, which they comped since it was my first visit so thanks for that! They also had two beers on cask that I would have liked to try but I was on a schedule. Wanted something light to eat with my beers so I got the beer cheese bread. Wasn't expecting some cheesy pizza bread thing but it was really good so whatever. Like most of the other places on this trip, the prices were even with all of the other places I have been. Overall a nice brewpub that I would definitely return to if I was in the area.

This place is beyond heaven. Great beer and amazing food. Imagine the ideal brewery restaurant and this is the place! The Kilt Lifter is my absolute favorite Scottish Ale. A terrific cider in the Pear Cider and the Peach Ale is phenomenal. The 8th Street Ale is great as well. They also have one of the best pumpkin ales out there in the Pumpkin Porter. They literally have a line outside the brewery the day they release it.

Four peaks is a great place to just grab a beer or enjoy some of their food. They have great food in addition to their selection of beers. Their pizza is actually worth trying. They make a thin crust pizza that is amazing. Occasionally they offer their oak barrel aged kiltlifter which is a step up from regular kiltlifter. They also offer pumpkin porter during the fall and sirius black. Their black IPA is amazing!

I feel like the quality of the food and drink was far above the price. Their beers are among my favorites. Definately Try the bourbon barrel aged ale its delicious and potent. The Barbeque Oatmeal stout wings were heaven when we ate them. The servers were extra friendly as well and the atmosphere was great. Overall a fantastic experience and I want to go back as soon as I possibly can.

I met "C" for lunch yesterday at Four Peaks. I've been here before for lunch and drove over for dinner but didn't stop because of the parking. The parking is free and you can park only on the same side of the street as the brewery and there is parking in the back where there is room for 12 to 15 cars in the lot. I parked again in the dirt alley "C" parked down the street almost a couple of blocks away. She said she would rather walk a ways than park in that alley. At night, there is not really adequate lighting there and I would rather not park there.
The brewery is an old dairy built in 1892 and the old brick building has a certain charm. The façade is especially interesting for an AZ building. Take a step back and check it out. There is not too many places in the Phx. metro area like this one. There is outside seating by the entrance I noticed there was a misting system working.
"C" had her drivers license scrutinized for a long time. ASU is three miles away so I guess they have to be extra careful. We were offered a seat outside but opted for a tableinside in the room off to the right of the bar area. There are plenty of tables available and out of the hot AZ weather.
There is a full bar including sparkling wines. We got a couple of beers and a appetizer. The hummus was tasty but runny and the flat bread was good. We later ordered a pizza and the toppings were good and the crust was just ok. The only beers available are Four Peak beers so I tried a Hefeweizen and the Hop Knot later. I liked them both and later reviewed my BA review of it and found it accurate. Most breweries serve their Hefeweizen beers in a pint glass and not a Hefeweizen glass and Four Peaks is the same. The Hefe was better than average but not the best I've had. It went down good and was refreshing so I would have it again.
The service was very good. Our server took our order with a smile and our food and drinks came out quickly. The drinks served by our waitress and the food by some grungy guy from the kitchen who just dropped our pizza down and left. The waitress came over and asked if we needed any peppers or parmesan cheese. Overall, it's a fast system but not as friendly and the service was so close to being fantastic.
Overall, I have to recommend this place if you can find a good parking spot.

We Sat outside in July (2013). There is a bar inside and brew equipment. Mist system fully pumping and place packed, on a Thursday night also. Cab dropped us off myself and Three buddies, one owed us for helping him move and challenged us to take on his wad of cash. We all had beer and then switched to spirits soon after.
Attractive waitress was at table frequently to keep us topped off so to speak. We got pizza and some type of chicken stuffed rolls, multiple orders of the latter, excellent albeit a bit heavy on salt. But with beer they worked fine, I like the hefeweisen there, has a buttery richness. After those switched to vodka so can't comment on other beers.
On a side note a buddy was ordering vodka water and two came out tasting like gin. He said they Prob switched pour device off a gin bottle to vodka bottle. They made it right tho and were very attentive to our needs. I think the four of us tabbed about 250 dollars or so.
I will definitely go back again in future. Growlers of hefeweisen to go. On a side note there was no lemon in the hefe or on the glass rim as others have mentioned in reviews of the beer. Maybe they listened or ran out of lemons the day I was there. Lol.
Worth a stop if in the greater PHX area.

Loved the place. And the service was top notch as were the beers. Kiltlifter is their main brew and very good. The 8th Street is as well. I also had the hefe and it was perfect as well. The real fun part is the fermenters and tanks are all out in the open and easy to see.
If you want a tour they recommended coming in the afternoon between the lunch rush and supper rush. If one of the brewers is there and free they don't mind showing you around.

The brewery to be at in Arizona, the oldest and most solidified brewery in the state, Four Peaks always draws a crowd. Their beers are fantastic and the food is great as well, a great scene near the campus of Arizona State University, has everything a craft beer lover needs.

HopKnot is a phenomenal beer. Easily my favorite beer in the state. The food was awesome. The building, old milk factory, was very cool. Liked how they capatilized on the environment and had outdoor dining. Service was great; albeit a little slow. However, that was because they were so busy; as they should be considering the great brews they produce.

I went on a mission to go see every local brewery in Arizona, and I was getting a pint glass from everyone I went to! It was funny because when my girlfriend and I went in there we made jokes about if this place was going to forget about bringing a souviner glass out for us. Four breweries before this one each forgot us, "FOUR"...it was hard to believe, but true. Our waitress was moving through the place at a good speed but was very well manored. She took our order without writeing it down, went over to two other tables and took theyr'e orders without writeing them down and disappeared. She came back in record time, everything was perfect and she brought the glasses with her before we had to ask for them again!
Awesome!!! Bravo!!!! The beer was great and so was the food!
