I have been to this place 2 or 3 different times, and every time I'm there, I get the feeling that it is brand new. I don't mean that in the best way, though. It has a feeling like they just haven't gotten it dialed in yet. I will likely go again and give them another try, but if they don't get it dialed in, it will be added to my list of places to not go. I find the beer really good. Mostly local brews and some other top notch offerings. I have tried a few different food items, and nothing really stands out. Everything seems to be just average. I think that it is a good concept, but if they don't get it togeteher, I'll stay closer to home.

Few good beers on tap, lots of AZ beer though if you are visiting and want to try a bunch of local stuff. They don't clean/change the tap lines often though and the beer flavor takes a hit. Good place to take your dog, they make bones out of spent brew grains. Cool place, beer needs work.

The place is really nice. Both indoor and outdoor seating. The bar is a really cool three sided bar with an enormous tricycle as its centerpiece. I tried their Imperial Mexican Stout and will say it's one of the more interesting and complex beers I've had. Definitely get the Cocoa and a little heat (chilis? cinnamon?). The blackened salmon tacos were certainly on point too. Will come back on my next trip to the Valley of the Sun!

Mediocre house brews here and too much focus on Arizona offerings. At least they are fairly competent at choosing regional "guest" beers from other states. Very poor service on multiple visits.

I'm usually not the type of person who starts my drinking at brunch. With a ball game later in the day and time to kill, hitting O.H.S.O. to fill the gap fit my schedule nicely. It also gave me an excuse to get my drink on while having brunch.

Even at 10am, parking spaces were limited and a few of the tables were occupied, which filled to two-thirds full upon our departure one hour later. Anyways....brunch...that concept is set well at O.H.S.O. For $10, you can choose a brunch item and any choice of a 10 ounce Arizona-brewed beer. French toast and beer, I'll take it, thanks!

The interior is clean cut with a bicycle on display (what is it with bicycles and breweries?), multiple pieces of artwork, lots of bright colored wood utilized, indie music playing overhead, and a bar which stands near its patio. I saw brewing tanks and kettles off to one side, indicating that there is brewing happening here. Generally it's a younger crowd while some mid-aged folks mixed into the scene.

That beer thing is represented well here. O.H.S.O. takes 9 of the 30 beers with its own beer, such as an amber ale, almond milk stout, and Baltic porter. Of the guests were a split of in-state (Thunder Canyon, Four Peaks, Dragoon, THAT) and out-of-state (Bavik, Ska, Rubicon, Upslope, Left Hand, Ommegang). I didn't see anything resembling special glassware, though the three beers I had tasted fresh. I tasted two house beer; the almond milk stout was good, the Grovey being weird.

The beer selection alone gives O.H.S.O. staying power in Phoenix. Add in homemade beer and that could make O.H.S.O. one of the happening places for beer in the area.

Stopped in here earlier today for some lunch and to try their beers. Atmosphere was pretty good even tho there was only a few people in the place. Service was great. The bartender had some time to talk to me since it was dead and she was really nice. Quality was pretty high al around. Food was top notch and I had no problems with the beers. Selection was excellent. They had about six of their own beers on and plenty of others to choose from. I went with the chorizo and potato flatbread and it was really good, minus the entire gardens worth of arugula on it. Prices were solid across the board, food was a touch high on certain items but no big deal there as their is lots to choose from. Overall a really nice bar with some awesome beers on offer. I would definitely return if I was in the area again.

A delightful find in Phoenix. The beer selection was very strong, and the fish tacos were the best I have had anywhere (and I travel a lot!!!).

The service was impeccable and bartender very knowledgeable. They also have and outside bar you can ride your bike to, if you are in to that exercise thing.

This is my third time coming to OHSO and this was very nice. I brought my dog to the patio. It is very pet friendly and my pooch even got a dog treat made in-house.

A: I think if you sit outside when the weather isn't too hot then you will find the atmosphere very good: especially the patio that backs up against a canal and gives a good view of Camelback Mountain. I sat on the North patio and enjoyed that, too. I think the inside is cramped and dark. I felt claustrophobic inside and uncomfortable.

Q: The food and beers have been very good. I like the Mediterranean Salad and the flat bread Pizza.

S: My first visit was not good. The service seems to get better, though. I really enjoyed this last visit.

S: A good selection of local beers and guest beers on tap.

F: The food is very good. Again, the first time was not too good but the last two times were good.

V: Expect to spend some money here.

At this time they do not have their own beers and they say it will be six to nine months before they do. What this place does have is a large selection of Arizona beers as well as some good out of state beers and imports. Great prices on the beer, especially at happy hour. $4.00 for 32 OZ of any Arizona beer. What is unfortunate is that the food is both overpriced and not very good. They did a nice job at remodeling the place from the previous place but the work still looks a little unfinished.

Update- they do make their own beer now. It is really hit or miss. Some things are great while some should be drain pours. Food has also improved but still something about the menu just doesn't float my boat and the food prices are still too high.

I am not sure the word "brewery" should be on their sign (even if it is a Nano), because the only locally brewed beer I got was undrinkable. The quality took me back to my first attempt at an all grain home brew (I only drank that because I invested in it), but I must brag that things went up after that first attempt, way up.

Anyways, their guest list was good so that kept me there along with a very cool atmosphere and great food. I think they should just call it the O.H.S.O. Eatery and drop the rest.
