I only tried a couple of beers at this location, then went to the grill, then came back to fill up a growler. This is quite a good way to have a pint or two. Very relaxing (for people who like to hang out with brewing equipment). Overall, I agree with everyone that this place is a better beer place than the Grill. In part because some of the seasonals and special brews don't seem to make it to the other location. When I visited there was no food available. If I lived in Sedona I would be hanging out here fairly often. Since I need to be effecient, I need to get food with my beer most of the time, so that's not an always option.

The Hefeweizen was by far the best. I once had an outstanding Rye here as well. The Nut Brown is another good one. I don't think everything here is a winner, but there are some great ones in the light to medium body category.

If you go to the actual brewery, there is small bar that puts you right next to the fermentation vessels which is very cool. Eat before you go and come to drink, the patio is nice and the service is friendly and accommodating. Although it has been a while since I have been there, my experience was great.

Located off of Coffee Pot Drive in a somewhat industrial area. Non descript setting with the sign out front announcing you're there. Somewhat dark inside but with the cloudy day it was, the Xmas lights and natural light coming in from the patio were fine. Very cool to be sitting right in the middle of the brewery. Maybe 8 to 10 stools and 6 or 8 high bistro style tables. Decent crowd for a Sunday afternoon.

Service was quick and attentive-obviously busy between monitoring the popcorn, selling swag etc but still very attentive. Had 2 Snakecharmer IPAs that were just great and a porter that was very good as well. Also a pale, hefe, golden lager, nut brown and another 1 or 2 beers on tap. No food going on except the self serve popcorn and roasted peanuts.

Live music was firing up, decent crowd of what seemed mostly locals. Nice vibe all in. Patio pretty much closed except for the smoking crowd. My 3 beers and wife's soda were 17 bucks. None too shabby.

Well worth the stop. Have not tried the brew pub at the restaurant in town.

Oak Creek serves some very good beers and food at their restaurant location. They always have their core lineup with a seasonal or two, and some have won awards at various festivals. If you're in Sedona this is clearly one of the best places for craft beer. Many food items are tasty as well. I can't do without the onion rings and pretzels, and of course the pizza. Many items are rich in taste, so watch out. I also appreciate much of the staff being older and more mature. That's more my style and I appreciate their friendliness.

Visited this place on New Years Eve 2010 during the day. As you walk in the door you find a wall counter on the right where you can purchase hot dogs prepared in various ways or some other snack foods. You then enter a second door and find a small brewery warehouse with a small bar and a few tables. There is also a pair of glass doors that lead to an outdoor seating area. The service was relaxed and friendly. The beers were sessionable yet tasty. I got an 11 glass sample platter (one of each brew they had available that day) and enjoyed most of them quite a bit. The brew master was trained in Germany and a majority of the styles brewed reflect that although they also had some nice seasonals like a chocolate porter, a winter porter, etc.

Located just off 89A it is tucked away across from a large grocery store. The bar area is small with about 7 stools but has a cool dark feel to it since brewery equipment sits in the room too. There is a nice outdoor patio section and that is were we headed.

There were several beers on tap just like the Brewery and Grill, but they had two special beers - an unfiltered Munich Keller and a nicely hopped King Crimson Red. Both of these beers were absolutely superb.

The place is a real local hangout. No food except for a popcorn machine and some nuts.

Service was quick, friendly, and knowledgable. Plenty of swag by the door if interested. Live music at nights too.

To me this was more my speed over the sister Grill restaurant. Must stop if in town.

A quarter to four, when the bar opened, there were already a dozen faithful patrons outside the door, ready for the owner, Fred Kraus, to open the door. Everyone except me was a member of the Mug Club, which includes a T-shirt, a numbered mug (securely locked up inside cabinets around the bar), and a dollar off all pints for a year.

I loved the fact that the fermentation tanks and all other beer-making supplies are set up around the seats in the bar room. Popcorn and peanuts are the only food available.

The pale ale is fantastic. The hefeweizen is very good as well. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Sedona area.
