While in Phoenix for a week on business , I got the opportunity to check out a few good beer bars. I was definitely looking forward to trying Papago since I heard so much about it.
The bar does not have much curb appeal. It is tucked away in a ugly Pink plaza (Papago Plaza). I drove by it twice before I found it.
The place is about 1200 square feet with a nice size bar and a wall of fridges filled with beer. You can get some good stuff, they sell singles and you can mix a sixer or grab a beer and have the bartender open it. They have a solid selection in the fridge. Good cali and Colo selection. Lots of Belgians.
They have 30 taps with about 4 or 5 used by their local homebrews (although they don't brew on premises). Not impressed with their homebrews. I mainly stuck to the micros on draft.
I went here 2 nights and both nights I sat at the bar. The patrons were really friendly. So was the barstaff. The bartenders knew a lot about beer. They always knew the ABV's and gave pretty solid recommendations if you weren't sure what you wanted.
The food is pretty average. I had the pretzels (good), wings (disappointing) , and pizza (really good). The sliders (mini hamburgers made with steak medallions) was highly recommended but I wasn't able to try.

If you're in the Phoenix area you should try this place out. Awesome.

Great beer bar in an easy to get to spot. Kind of a pirate ship vibe on the inside with a bunch of big wooden decor elements. Low-key and chill. Huge bottle selection and a ton of drafts. I was able to try a whole bunch of beers thanks to small pour options. I didn't have any food, so I can't comment on that. Awesome spot in greater Phoenix.

They do not brew the best beers in town but have an outstanding tap list and a really cool place to hang out. Great bottle selection as well!

A bottle shop inside a brew pub with decent food. Ok in my book.

Good selection. The bottle selection in the coolers in back was impressive. The atmosphere was exactly as expected. A good thing. Good knowledge of what's on tap. Not that busy and service was weak. I don't need attention, but I want service. Maybe if you sit at the Bar they'll remember you're in the building. Pass on the beer bites appetizers.
