I went in for lunch again today. This makes the third time i have been there. I didnt want to reveiw on just one visit as it could be skewed either way, good or bad, and i wanted a fair review.

Again, as each time before, i sat at the bar where Brian was bartending. I had some awesome cheese stick things off the appetizer menu for lunch, cant remember what they were called, but they were great, like beer battered potato skin cheese stick things... lovely.

I washed it down with an "18 oz" pint of obscura stout. Although i feel this beer should be renamed as a porter (see my review) it was lovely as well.

The entire staff i had contact with was nice and helpful. the place was clean.

On tap they had 7 ( i think) of their own brews, one from papago, one from breckenridge, and something else raspberry i didnt take much notice of.

This is pretty much a brewery before bar.. highlighting their own brews first and foremost, which is quite likely why i like it so much. It has a hometown feel about it while being pretty big and airy.

Several TVs, and they say plans to have a double sided bar adjacent to an outdoor patio really soon.. that will be great for spring, cant wait.

I will definitely be back over and over..

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.
