Ah, Papago. Jewel of south Scottsdale.

Papago is a beer bar, plain and simple. The crowd varies from beer nerds to the newly initiated to the simple college crowd out for a drink, but the ambiance is usually jovial. Likewise, most of the bartenders are pretty knowledgeable and friendly. If you see Zach, ask him to make you a Hop Suicide -- a mix of all the hoppy beers they have on tap at a given time. The place used to get rather crowded at night, especially during tastings and other events, but the recent expansion into the space next door has really opened everything up. Plus, there's shuffleboard!

Papago's beers are standouts in the Valley for their creative takes on styles. They're all contract-brewed, some by other local breweries like SunUp, some by breweries in Belgium. Elsie's, a milk stout flavored with coffee and Irish cream, is one of my favorite beers, and the one I always suggest to tourists.

One thing I really appreciate about Papago: they understand the internet. The online tap list is updated daily and new beers are posted to Facebook and Twitter whenever they arrive. I never miss a special release or sought-after draft. An extensive bottle selection and tap list offers even more opportunity for trying new stuff.

Overall, one of the places you MUST visit if you're in Phoenix.
