Set in an out-of-the-way, non-mainstream location, Four Peaks Brewing Company screams authenticity. The building is a gorgeous, brick warehouse originally constructed in 1892. As a former warehouse, the vaulted ceiling is massive standing 35 feet tall, the interior has all the room and more you could possibly want for both brewing and eating, and it even includes an expansive outdoor patio for taking in that amazing Arizona sun. But the best part is that on NFL Sundays, a group of die-hard fantasy fans gather to watch no less than 11 televisions - mostly plasma - and every game at the same time.

The menu is not terribly creative and features dishes you're likely to find on any brewpub menu with few surprises. I had an Italian beef sandwich served on house made beer bread. It was tasty, but not overly impressive. It was basically a high-end glob of cheese, peppers, onions and beef on a decent chunk of bread. The accompanying breaded fries, however, were outstanding. For dessert I tried the special - a small, individual strawberry tart. It was very, very good.

Overall, the beer was well above average and lends well to sitting and drinking all day, every day. My favorites were the Hefeweizen (which I don't normally go for), the Kiltlifter and the Raj IPA.

I found the Kolsch to be a bit sweet but perfect for beginners. The peach was barely peached, which I appreciate. The Hop Knot Pale had a strong up-front bitterness without any of the lingering complexity, so I didn't care for it. The Raj IPA took care of that problem and was much tastier. The Kiltlifter was sweet and spicy, almost like a Christmas Ale and the Hefe was flawless. I just wish they had more dark offerings than just the Oatmeal Stout, which could use some work.

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.

This is a great place for day drinking. A must try is the "from scratch" chicken fingers with the jalapeno dressing. Fries are some of the best as well.
