We stopped here for lunch on our second day in Arizona, surprised to see how this was to the ASU campus, wish I had a place like this near me when I was in college, walk in and see a nice bar along with several tables and outside area as well, I just was not about to sit out in one hundred degree heat and drink a barleywine, their Hopsquatch was great and I am glad I got a glass of that instead of the obvious choice Hop Knot which I have had many times before, and also took a six pack home with me, lots of football going on here and it was packed with Sun Devils fans, also the most people I have ever seen walk in and get growlers filled for a brewpub, had to be three dozen people do so in the hour or so we were there, they had a bunch of other beers there and I believe all of the others were available in bottles as well, maybe not the peach beer but I am not sure, I had chicken strips and fries which was real good, my buddy had the mushroom swiss burger which he seemed to enjoy as well, beer was four to five dollars, each of our meals were eight bucks if I remember correctly, nice lunch stop and wish we could have spent more time here, this one was actually fifteen minutes closer to our hotel than the Scottsdale one, heard they also have a great Sunday brunch, I would go back in the future, one of few places I have been in Arizona but certainly recommended

I'm typically a little leery when it comes to breweries that are, at face value, more eatery than brewery. If its not located in some industrial park next to a welder and a some sort of nondescript importer store front, then I feel uneasy. Overall the brew pub vibe wasnt bad but it just had that "this place gets sh*t packed on a Friday night" sort of vibe to it. Service was friendly and I actually found myself enjoying the beer. The Kilt Lifter was my favorite but since we're in the season, I also went for the Pumpkin Ale. Both beers were mellow but in a good way; I could've sipped either all day. Not bad, 4 peaks....not bad at all.

This place was eh...The atmosphere was pretty weak, the beers were pretty weak and the service was average. Prices for a flight were pretty good. Would definitely never come back here because of their beers.

Kinda busy and crowded, but still okay. Had the barrel aged KiltLifter (awesome) and the fish and chips for dinner. Took home a growler of schwarzbier, which was also pretty fine. Recommended stop in Phoenix.

One of my go-to's! Fresh cold beer, delicious food, friendly crowd, great atmosphere, and a great local company with an interesting history. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, bar space, and TV's. Despite its fairly close proximity to Arizona State University, students don't frequent very often (which is a plus in my opinion).

Exceptional beers and food. Well known for Kilt Lifter that is widely distributed, but don't miss Hop Knot which is a good APA. The selection here is good and every beer sampled has been worthwhile.

I visited Four Peaks back in 2008 for the UGA at ASU game. It was an oasis, and the beer was great. The only place in Tempe I long to visit again, especially with Montis gone.

My favorite brewpub in the Phoenix area that I tried. Excellent beer and food, and a nice spot to sit out on the patio. Highly recommend.
