They have a row of coolers housing a great selection of bottles. You actually get the bottle you want from the cooler and the server will bring you appropriate (usually) glassware. Their bottle selection is the best I have ever seen at a bar in Arizona.

Their tap list usually has a few things I want; since I do not drink more than 1-2 beers when I am out I usually have issues narrowing what I want off tap.

The food is decent, not bad in any way, but not great and in my opinion the prices on their food is out of wack with the actual quality of their product. Oh well, I go here for the beer, not to eat.

Most servers know their beer, but I have had a few that poured my bottle for me and totally screwed up an expensive bottle of Belgian by pouring my buddy and me 2 glasses of foam.... I usually try to not let them do the pour, but sometimes they are sneaky!

Love this place! Always a good tap list, and recently it's been one of the best in the area. Pretty good bottle selection, and good food, too.

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.
