A very nice brewery that provides a full spectrum of high quality brews. Jan Brown (Lead Brewer) knows exactly what he’s making and describes the beers much better than the Prescott Brewing Company Web site does. When I was there they had 11 beers on tap, all that I had were very good examples of their respective styles. Although the profile of most of the beers is light, they are all well-crafted. Even a person who typically drinks rich beers will find something they like there, especially in the winter. One of the beers I enjoyed was the Raven Maniac Stout, which is a seasonal beer (9.7% alcohol). Toward the other end of the spectrum is the Pilsner 500, which is a great European-style Pilsner. If you like a more concentrated malt-derived beverage, you will appreciate their Scotch whisky selection. (Their menu incorporates some of their beers into the recipes. They have pizzas that use the spent grain in the crust.)

This is just an all around great place, and you can tell that they take pride in what they do. I wish I had time to visit this place more often.

Basic brewery beers with a seasonal pumpkin. Petrified Porter was crisp and refreshing. Smooth with good dark and burnt grain flavor. Split a pulled pork sandwich. Fast service. Good food. Nothing spectacular.

10 beers on tap with a wide variety of styles. Small bar but lots of seating inside and in the covered atrium. Nice location on the main square across from the courthouse. 4 oz samples available. Hot pretzels highly recommended: the pretzels are pretty good themselves, and they come with a fantastic chive and cheese dip. Shepherd's Pie also recommended.

Visited earlier today after a nice hike around Willow Lake.

Atmosphere was OK, crazy busy at 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Families with little kids, old farts, a tattooed guy with a cane, and middle age folks all were present. I like the coasters from all over adorning the one wall which was a nice touch.

Quality was good overall, an enjoyable experience despite the craziness. Tried the Porter and IPA which were both solid brews.

Service was good, the young lady was quite busy but was timely bringing brews and food to Da Boss and i.

Selection of brews was pretty good - 10 PBC brews were available including a Tripel and a Barleywine which i did not sample.

Food was good. Da Boss had the turkey burger which she thought was very well prepared. I had a jalapeno burger which had a nice bite but was not overwhelming as i could enjoy my IPA with it without a constant burn.

Value was good, burgers were both under $12, brews were under $5.

It had been many years since we have been here, glad we stopped in. Definitely will have to come back for a hike and lunch in the future!

Stopped in at Prescott brewing after driving through Jerome from Sedona. Atmosphere is unique as the brewpub shares hall space with some other stores in a narrow indoor shopping space. Walls are lined with coasters from all over. Bar is to the right and back, butting up against the brewing space that isviewable through glass in the rear.

Service was attentive at the bar and they brought out the food promptly.

Selection of brews was about 10 or so taps, with the Achocholyse and Christmas ale being the popularly ones I saw poured. I ordered a pint of the Black Sheep Ale, a dark IPA that was delicious, nicely bitter and just enough roast. Also, tried the IPA which was spot on - not overly cloying, great fresh hops and clean malt flavors. Other brews on tap ranged from wheat, to light and other mild ales.

The food was also very good, we both ordered burgers and shared some fried pickles, all prepared to order and great tasting. Great portions for the price.

Overall quality was very good, brews were very fresh and food prepared well.

Value is exceptional, very cheap with pints at $4 and most menu items less than $12 or so.

Stopped in here for a late lunch after driving through Sedona and Jerome. Downtown Prescott was a neat place to walk around with lots of antique stores and we were pleasantly surprised to find this neat brewpub as well. The beer was good if not great, with a nice IPA and amber making up for a disappointing Tripel. Quite a few other options on the menu and it seemed like they brewed some seasonals and one offs as well. Service was very good despite the place being fairly full at four in the afternoon.

The food stood out with an extensive menu printed in a newspaper format, consisting of all the pub food options you could come up with. I had a really excellent peppercorn-gorgonzola burger and there were a number of other promising items on the menu to keep things interesting.

A pretty good brewpub overall, I would definitely go back if I were to find myself in Prescott AZ.
