I gave the atmosphere of this brewpub only a slightly above average rating because it depends on when you go. If you go when they are not busy and sit outside with good weather, then it is relaxing and enjoyable to drink here. However, if you go on a busy night when all the ASU students are there, then it is very loud, crowded, and many of them will act boorishly toward you.
The quality of the beer and food is very good. The beer is brewed there, and the food is cooked when ordered.
The service here is ok, but not as good as other places since it is so large. The waiters are all of the college age and are fairly nice when waiting your table.
The selection of beer is very good as it is all brewed there. They have about 10 taps: 8 of them are regulars and 1 or 2 are for seasonal brews. I've drank many of the regulars and enjoyed them.
The menu contains a variety of foods from the expected bar foods to some healthier items. The foods I've eaten here were all delicious.
Four Peaks has a good overall value as it follows similar pricing as other places I've been to. The beers and food cost more than I think they should, but the prices are reasonable since the food and drinks are made at the brewpub.
Overall, if you go to Four Peaks at the right time of the week and day, it is an enjoyable experience.

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.
