Driving through on my way across the country, my group had two nights scheduled in Flagstaff for a side trip to the Grand Canyon. Stopped in here one night for dinner and left with mixed feelings at best. On the positive side, we were seated right away and the pint of ESB I had was top-notch. The food is fairly typical bar food - the roasted garlic appetizer was great. Burgers are absurdly huge, and housemade veggie burger patties can be substitued on any of their sandwiches.
Now for the bad: the place is basically a cavernous rec room, with some random hippie art on the walls and a performance space in back. The staff seemed stoned, although fairly competent (that is, until I needed another beer and couldn't hail them over because both guys were behind the bar playing around on hotornot.com). I could imagine the place is really uncomfortable when crowded, too. Still, I had a decent burger and some good beer, so I can't really complain.

Like others said right on the main drag, Rt 66 into town but off the shopping plaza while the brew house fronts the road. Decent vibe that really grew on me the longer we sat there. Wife sat at a table while I approached the bar to ask about seating and within a minute or 2 a waiter came around the corner and was right on top of things.
Selection was ok. Honestly the least amount of house beer choices I have ever seen in a brew pub. Sure I dont need to be overwhelmed with 12 to 15 beers but 5 is a bit sparse. There were more guest taps then house taps. Regardless-had the ESB and the porter which were both good. Selection wise aside...the single malt menu is just mindblowing. Sure my wife is from Scotland, have toured a few distilleries in my day, but this was just amazing.
Food was good-had a salad with grilled chicken, wife had some gravy fries.
Price was very reasonable-2 pints, a single malt, meals, a soda and coffee and I was out the door for under 40 bucks before tip.
Think we are going there tomorrow post Grand Canyon...

Stopped in here after a trip up to the grand canyon to have a few pints before dinner. It is a pretty average looking place inside but has a great location right along route 66 in downtown Flagstaff. The beer was quite good with a excellent porter as the standout for the evening. My only complaint is that they only had about five of their own brews on tap. They had a quite a few guest brews (all of them good) but I was interested in the local offerings and was a little disappointed to find more guest beers than house brews on tap. Service was good (I ordered at the bar) and everything seemed well looked after. We didn't eat here, but the food at the next table looked promising. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
