Stop #323 on my world brewery tour.

Located in as-historic-as-you-can-get Chandler AZ. In all fairness, a very nice area and solid choice for a brewpub location.

Visited around 2:30 on a Monday. On the way in, heard the sweet sounds of live Phish "Run Like an Antelope"

Sat at a table in the bar area with the wife and 10 month old. Not much of a crowd at this time of day which is by design for us.

Got the 4 oz sampler with...
Devil's ale - west coast pale ale. Very nice with a citrusy flavor.
Hefe
Epicenter American amber
Hop shock IPA - grapefruit
Sunspot Gold
Gordo Stout - nitrogen, a bit thin on mouthfeel
Count hopula - blood red IPA

The finest rundown of a beer sampler from any brewery I've visited. I did ask about the hop profile on of devil ale. He didn't know and never got back with me.

Big open doors made sitting inside like being outside. The can all their beer in the building.
Not sure I understand their mantra "craft beer for beer drinking."
All beers were solid and worth the stop if you are in the area.

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/lively, but, food was worth the stop, to me.

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.
