Last stop of the day after having an early dinner at Pizzeria Bianco a few blocks away. Atmosphere was solid. Plenty of people all over the inside as well as the outside spaces. I was lucky and snagged the last seat at the bar. Service was a little hit or miss. I got my beer quickly but every time I tried to get their attention to order some food to go they were too busy talking to their friends at the bar. Selection was solid thanks to the 20+ taps from all over the world. I wasn't very hungry but I kept hearing about the pop tarts so I got an order to go and ate them when I got home. They were chocolate, vanilla cherry and they were very good. Prices on a few of the beers and a couple food items were definitely high but nearly all of the rest were priced well. Overall a really nice beer bar, I would love to come back and sit outside and sip some beers.

Place is Epic.. right in downtown Phoenix, easy to get to, what you wanna drink is right on the chalkboard so you can acess it they do samplers and flights if you get confused and cant choose at the drop of a hat, plenty of seating and FREE wifi..

My dad and I went here for their one-year anniversary party this past September. It was my second time here overall.

Atmosphere: It's garage-like, with a big chalkboard beer menu and a stainless steel wall filled with taps behind the rather lengthy bar. The two times I've been here it's been really busy (I imagine there's a pretty good market that's not being met for craft beer/gastropub food in Phoenix). It's airy on one end for when the sun goes down. There are individual and communal tables and no TVs, which I love -- it encourages people to be social and to mix and mingle.

Quality: WTF is this category? It's too nebulous, but I'd say the beer quality was great, as was the food quality... more below.

Service: Both times, meh. It took awhile to get seated (hostess both times was not super communicative or friendly, and though she worked hard, she sometimes ignored the lines of folks at the front of the house). Waiters/waitresses were pretty good, but it also took too long to get a pour, so I had to revert to ordering a new beer as soon as one was brought to me to keep it going. This might be because of it being busy.

Selection: Great and varied. They happened to have Old Rasputin XV on nitro, Stone 17th Anniversary IPA, and several American and international selections I'd never seen on tap before anywhere, ever (and I've lived all over). Best selection of taps in the area, in my opinion.

Food: Great stuff. It's gastropub food and the selection isn't huge (and takes awhile to come out). I had a burger made of ground pork, topped with a fried egg, bacon, jalapeno aioli, and carmelized sugar. Badass. And the poutine is amazing too. And the pop tart for dessert.

Value: After living in the Boston area for the past few years, the prices were pretty reasonable. College kids may disagree, though. 6-8 bucks for a pour, 12 bucks for a burger...

Overall, love this place.

Finally a place in Downtown Phoenix that has an extensive list of rotating beers on tap. They also have a selection of 6 different wine drafts as well. Their beer list will consist of around 30 different types each day. The food is really good too, but unfortunately their isn't much of a vast selection. They also make homemade pop tarts that are awesome. The location is terrific, across the street from an indie movie theater. The crowd is filled with beer aficionados and the decor of the place is well designed.

We go here as often as we can as we really enjoy the place. The tap selection is probably the best in the Phoenix area and we learned yesterday that they also have a limited bottle selection of some very hard to find beers.

The atmosphere is very casual and relaxed. Every time we've been we met some other incredibly interesting patrons that enjoy good beer as much as we do.

The food menu isn't huge, but the quality of everything we've tried has been outstanding.

If you're a hop head, have a taste for Belgians or just enjoy a smooth German lager, this place has something for you.

This is quite a nice place to visit. It has a causal atmosphere with a nice overall presence. From the outside it is pretty plain, but inside is nice. The decor is basic, but it suits it well and it is all I would desire in a Gastropub. The patio is great, with a little view of downtown Phoenix. The beer selection is quite good. They label everything clearly, with a break down of what type of beer, ABV, name and brewer. They have a great mixture of each style. They will have beers that are harder to find, local brews and good staples. You can find their beer selection on Facebook or you can go to Taphunter. I thought it would be on their web page, but I couldn't find it. The service was excellent, being attentive, having good suggestions and friendly. The food is quite good, I only shared appetizers with my friends, but they were scrumptious and a good size.

Overall, if you are coming through Phoenix or live here I would suggest dropping by here and you won't be disappointed.

Great draft selection and variety; exactly what you want to see at an "ale house."

Guests seat themselves either at the bar (about 12-15 spaces), patio or inside. Upon entering, you can pick up a sheet to make a 6-beer flight for $9. With 30+ rotating taps, the flight is hard to pass since each time I go, there are always at least 4-5 beers I've never had before. VERY HAPPY to see only a few local taps, very sick of PHX area bars loading up on local brew. Service is based on my bar experience only. Nothing to complain about; bartenders let us enjoy our beers in peace, answered questions and asked about refills once they noticed drink levels getting low. Atmosphere was that of a hipster bar, eclectic crowd including families and noise levels getting loud at times. Very minimalistic design inside - which is exactly what they were going for.

Not an extensive review but if you don't mind an ale house without games, TVs or anything to do inside, but will compromise for a great selection, head on down.
