Stop #324 on my world brewery tour.

Visited on a Tuesday around 3:00 with my parents, wife, and 10-month old daughter. Not the ideal crew, but I needed to make the visit.

I had been here ~10 years ago when it was Sonoran Brewing (small sign still on the entry door). The bartender told me it was still the same guys but they sold the name and recipies to someone else.

Kept it pretty simple by my dad and I getting the sampler...

Cream Ale
Pale Ale
Amber Ale
IPA
Octoberfest
Irish Stout (with coffee)

And added specialty beers: cask red with Amarillo and XXX rye Pale (imperial and syrupy).

We both really liked the coffee Irish stout. All the beers were solid and I wish I had the opportunity to take better notes and enjoy more but I was driving and it wasn't the best situation to put my mom in.

I have been to Sun Up a couple times and I went last night with my friend and DD with the idea of writing a review. This place is 30 miles away and worth the trip.

A: I like this place. It reminds me of a mom and pop place when you walk in. A bar strait ahead, tables to the right and booths to the left. That's not all: there is a patio and past the patio there is another area to seat. The parking has never been a problem for me which is a real plus. We tied a heat record yesterday and the A/C was nice and cool. The staff said they were trying to make the patio dog-friendly and this would make the place outstanding for me.

Q: This place brews some great beers! I always try something on the seasonal list and there is always something on cask. Yesterday it was a Spiced Belgium Ale. When I was there last time, I tried a Double IPA on cask.

S: The servers are great. I haven't been there enough so that they know me; but the service is fast and friendly. Servers seem to know their beer which is always important to me.

S: Several regular craft beers and more than a couple of seasonal beers that rotate insure that I find something that I like. I don't think that they serve guest beers but the selection of the brews they make are very good to outstanding.

F: The food is far better than bar food. I had the hamburger with the homemade chips: very good.

V: Regular beers for $4.50, seasonal beers for $5.00, and growlers for $11.00 (regular beer) is a good deal for good beer. There is a happy hour but I have always missed it.

I recommend this place to you guys in BA. I would like to meet the brewer someday and shake his hand!
