Despite the mediocre reviews on BA, I stopped in for dinner on a recent trip to Flagstaff. I am really glad I did, as this was my favorite brewpub of the three I visited while in town.
I visit AZ often, and this brewpub seems to be the only restaurant or bar in the state that actually has some personality. I dig the laid back, non-chain restaurant feel. The entire establishment is well worn, but it's also very clean. Also of note, was that the bartender actually had good, non-generic top 40's music playing. Up until this point, I thought it was against state law to play music that is remotely decent in public.
Service was good. Unlike the other brewpubs in town, I got the impression that my server actually knew a thing or two about the brews he was serving.
Tap selection was maybe 4 or 5 house beers, and 4 or 5 guest taps in addition to a small bottle list. I get the impression that they have a very limited brewing capacity, but they did a nice job of filling out their guest taps to ensure that there is something good to drink. I had their Special K.'s Sitka, which was tasty.
The food was a pleasant surprise. It was cheap, and very tasty. I had low expectations after reading off a menu that look as if it was laminated 10 years ago, but it was one of the better meals I had on my trip.

Stopped here for lunch with Da Boss today.
Atmosphere was interesting. Hippies, hipsters, and college kids were the primary customers. There was plenty of patio seating outside but the shady seats were all taken - shade being the name of the game when it is sunny and 85. So we opted to sit inside. In addition to the 4 FBC and 4 guest taps bottles of booze took a huge space on the wall. There were some old rustic signs hanging on the walls. inside seating was somewhat limited.
Quality of the beer was pretty good. I had the ESB and Da Boss had a Odell 90 Shilling.
Service was very good as our server had a good working knowledge of the beers available. She was also quick and courteous during a pretty busy late lunch hour.
Selection was pretty limited to the 8 taps.
Food was very good. We both had burgers that were cooked to order. Had the onion rings which were very tasty.
Overall value was reasonable. House brews were $4 and guest were $5. Burgers were in the $9-11 range. Definitely worth a stop and if anything watching the guests and servers was entertaining!

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...
