Met up with some old friends for happy hour on a recent trip. Forgot what the beer specials were (pricing), but they were more than fair.

Santan is right in the middle of the revitalized downtown Chandler restaurant and bar district. Partking was a bit of a chore, but living around Boston I'm used to traffice and parking hassles.

Like alot of places in AZ, it's open air and expansive. Was crowded but I sat on the patio and felt like I had alot of room.

Had the sampler and all the beers were solid but not spectacular. Their flagship, the Devil (which I think is sold in cans too) seems like a beer that would be a regular in my fridge. The Hefe was also full of banana-orange goodness.

Staff were all super-friendly and attentive. Tried the slider plate and some other apps, were above average pub grub.

Worth a visit if you're in the East Valley.

2pm on a Sunday. Place was packed, about a 10 minute wait for a table. Burgers, onion rings, fries, fish n chips, and short rib tacos were great. Service was good. Beers are decent but not to the 4/5 rating, imo. Noisy as hell, but, food was worth the stop.

San Tan is one of my home town favorites. The vibe is always fun, great music, outdoor sitting areas, and always fun crowds. They have live music nights and other activities. The beer is excellent, San Tan also cans so all their beer is available at the store (Outside Special Items only at Brewery). The food is awesome, staff is very nice. If your looking to have a fun day out San Tan is worth the stop.

Great spot with a bunch of beers on tap. Lots of different styles available. They tout their beers as "southwestern style" or something if that nature. I took this to mean a bit on the watery side. Not bad, just everything I tasted was a bit lacking in lingering flavor. Didn't eat, but the food looked awesome. Servers and staff were nice and attentive.

This is one of the places that got me in to brew pubs. They have great beer and amazing food. The menu changes regularly and they have delicious specials, guest beers, special brewery only beers etc... They are definitely worth checking out.
