Warehouse feel, always busy, and a fair selection of homemade brews and food.

I was surprised when I discovered that I hadn't review Four Peaks as I have stopped in several times over the last few years when in town for business. The place always seems to be busy. On my latest visit, there was a 15-20 minute wait for an outside table on a Tuesday at 6 pm. Inside, there's a warehouse feel: tall ceilings, open space, and a bit on the dark side. A great place to sit when it's blistering hot outside. Outside is a big patio facing the student housing across the not so busy street. Beerwise, they typically carry their standard offerings and a seasonal or two. If you're there Wednesday (and until it lasts) something goes on cask. Unfortunately, no seasonals this time. The quality is slightly better than average brewpub. Service is respectable, never had to go empty, a bit slow sometimes on the food service, otherwise good. Food is slightly upscale pub food, but well prepared.

Would I return? Now that I've been to Four Peaks a number of times it's starting to get a bit old. If there was something different in the area, I might give that a try. As a solid standby, though, it makes a good fallback. (1,210 characters)

This is a great place for day drinking. A must try is the "from scratch" chicken fingers with the jalapeno dressing. Fries are some of the best as well. (152 characters)

I really enjoyed this place. Went there one night over Christmas with my brother and it was the perfect blend of brew pub/bar/restaurant. There were places to sit at the bar, high tops, low tops, and outside seating depending on what vibe you were looking for. Had the green chili cheese fries and they were awesome. I will definitely be going back (and not just because its only two blocks from my brother's apartment). (420 characters)

Absolute stalwart of the AZ brewing scene, and their 8th Street location is an icon in its own right. Big, airy, open feel, pretty sure they only have swamp cooling, so it can get a touch warm in the summer months. But, it's also oozes a laid back atmosphere, and offers a pretty fantastic menu. Good beer selection, almost always with a seasonal or two and, usually, at least one cask selection (which they manage very well). Pretty much can't do Phoenix beer without hitting Four Peaks. (488 characters)
