Stop #325 on my world brewery tour.

Visited with my wife and 10-month-old daughter around 5:00 after a day at the Grand Canyon and some shopping a block north in historic downtown Flagstaff.

Sat at a booth in the bar with a nice view out onto the patio and nearby train tracks (quite a few BNSF trains coming through).

Had a sampler...
IPA - bitter with strong English and American hop profile
Imperial red - 9.4%
Trippel - 10.8% excellent balance - not too sweet
Marzen - same as at Beaver Street - one of the best I've had
Hefe
Porter - very nice chocolate and roasty flavor

They share some beers with their sister brewery Beaver Street but I prefer Lumberyard as it has a better environment and their beers are more adventurous and up my alley.

An impressive, seemingly new, facility with the brewery visible through some glass. The beer was of very good quality with an impressive selection. I tried an IPA with a good west coast profile and a nice barleywine that seemed to have potential for aging. Everything was served in appropriate glassware.

Service was good as was the food. We had some fried mac and cheese balls and I had a really good California style burrito. Definitely a worth while stop and probably the best beer related stop we made in Flagstaff.

7 Lumberyard beers on tap, including a good mix of styles, plus 2 guest taps, Both tables and bar stools in bar area; additional indoor seating; large patio good for watching trains on the very nearby and busy tracks. Very meaty and rather good chili. Spinach dip was even better. Noisy, at least later at night.

Visited July 12, 2013 at the end of a fantastic week on a Lake Powell houseboat. Given that I love trains and beer, I'll give this place a 5 for atmosphere sitting out on the patio as train after train passed by. Good crowd of outdoorsy young tourist and college types. Had a flight of six beers and I liked (but not loved) almost all of them. Our waitress was super attentive and helpful. Food was good, but pretty focused towards burgers, wings, and other typical bar offerings.

Stopped in after having lunch at their sister brewery, Beaver Street just down the road in downtown Flagstaff.

Entrance is right of the main street in downtown Flagstaff, though we came at it from the street behind. A very cool exterior with remnants of the previous use for the building, a lumber mill and yard (flecked paint on the bricks recognizing this previous use). Near the entry way there are is room for outdoor seating with a firepit. We stopped in while there was snow still on the ground so that was not a seating option, but I bet its a great spot to be in warmer weather.

Entryway breaks between the bar area and the seating area. Very well done inside, with a mix of reused space from the lumber mill and new fixtures for the brewery, bar and restaurant. Nicely open, with great big windows facing north east. Bar has room for 20 at the bar plus some booth seating.

Quality of the building and bar setup was great, nice and clean, good presentation of the beer sampler we tried. Nice deal on the sampler, with 6 brews, all of which were true to style and well worth tasting. Beers of note were the porter, imperial red and belgian.

Service was good, helpful and attentive, but it was also early in the day and not busy.

Did not get to try the food, but it appeared to be standard pub fare. If the quality of the food was similar to Beaver Street, it should be very good.

Value is just right, great pricing for a quality selection of beers.

This is one of our favorite places to have lunch when we're in Flagstaff. They have a very nice restaurant right near the train station. The decor is rustic western and very comfortable and pleasant. The quality of this restaurant is very nice and we always enjoy ourselves. Service is friendly and reasonably fast. The beer selection would benefit from a good selection of guest taps. I had the pulled pork the last time I was there and it was great, others had Irish eggrolls and love them and not so much the Vietnamese burger, it was good but not great. Value is reasonable for what you get.

Went to the Lumberyard as the first stop of my Brewery Tour of CO. Going through Flag and ABQ then up to Denver and beyond. The staff was friendly service was quick and our server was attentive but not overly attentive. The food was fresh and came out hot. My friend, a mac and cheese expert it turns out (but who knew), says the mac and cheese is the best restaurant mac and cheese "ever". My sandwich was good as well but the menu is typical of most breweries in AZ (which I will review the nest time I visit). Service was the best thing about this brewery.

Had a flight of beers: the Red Ale, IPA, Hefeweizen, Pilsner, and a seasonal that I can't remember. I liked the Hefeweizen and the Red Ale the best and would have got a pint of the red and maybe a glass of the "hefe", too, but the dinging noise from the train was non-stop. Once it got going the rumble is tolerable but we were already on our way. Therefore, the noise is a negative and our server said that the train may have hit something or someone and may ding for a long time. So out we went. They are dog friendly if you sit on the patio and your dog is tied to the fence and is outside the fence. (Try San Tan Brewery in Chandler for a better experience). These factor huge in atmosphere and the vibe of this place.

The inside seats as many (about) as outside. Large TVs on the walls. They sell some of their beers to go in bottles. I didn't ask about growlers as I didn't have a full beer to want to take one home. It looked as though they only had their beers on tap at this time.

Pleasantly surprised with this place. I'm passing through town and staying the night and decided to stop. As for the food selection, it's big but limited - lots of burgers and sandwiches, typical bar starters, but little else. But the burger I had was really one of the best I have had recently. Good beef, perfectly cooked. Very good toppings. I have had so many average burgers at so many establishments, it's really nice to eat a good one. Their chili is pretty decent too.

Now for the beers - my general impression is they are underrated here on BA. Service was pretty good for happy hour (5pm on a Friday) - never had to wait more than a minute to get someone's attention (I sat at the bar for dinner). Overall, I was very happy with Lumberyard, and took a growler back to my hotel.

Great place with even better beers. Happen to hit it over Labor Day weekend with the family so pretty packed. After a short wait was seated in the bar area. Would have peferred the patio but due to the great weather provided by the city of Flagstaff wait was way too long. Solid selection of craft brews and settled on the Imperial Red. OMG...off the hook. One of the best beers going. Big flavorful and packing a punch. After that, Lumberyard IPA tasty as well. Ordered food, lots of choices but settled on burgers and apps. Excellent selection of apps with pretty solid pricing. Next time...will enjoy the patio. Looked like a great party!

Fairly decent brewery/restaurant owned by the folks of Beaver St. Brewing Co. Nothing really stands out here except the wings which come naked and dusted with an awesome seasoning and your choice of sauces on the side. The wife and I really enjoyed them. The IPA is good as well. Overall the place seemed alot like a chain type of brewpub. Lots of better offerings in flag I think. Although this a nice place to take the family. Outside is a sitting area with a large fire pit that is really nice when the snow starts to come down. Also, you can buy some of the beers in bottles, cans, or a growler.
