Four Peaks Brewing Company (East 8th Street location in Tempe) was my first stop when i visited Phoenix last fall. I almost missed it because it didn't look anything like the picture shown on their web page. Let's just say...that there where no leaves on the trees and leave it at that.

They were serving outside, but i went in. Half was brewery / warehouse and the other half was bar/restaurant. I sat at the bar and was immediately waited on by the bartender even though they were crowded and doing a brisk lunchtime business.

They had a good selection of their own beers on tap. I had the Kilt Lifter Scottish-Style Ale first. I thought it was reasonable, but a little lighter than what I've come to expect from that style. I was lucky enough to have a taste of the Hopsquatch Barleywine before i tried a pint of the Hop Knot IPA. My 'do-over' would have been to start out with and sip a full serving of Hopsquatch with my meal.

I had walleye sandwich with fries which was tasty and very reasonably priced.

I visited Four Peaks while in Tempe a couple of weeks ago. When I was there, they had 20 beers on tap plus 4 more can/bottle pours representing a wide variety of styles. 9 of these were special series beers and the rest were regulars; there were sours, lagers, IPAs, fruit beers, and a stout. A good selection all around, although thin in the dark beer area. I had the English pale, a European lager, and a Belgian strong pale ale, all quite tasty.

Build out is a big place with a restaurant and bar, with a couple separate seating areas including a big restaurant area and a smaller bar to the side. The overall feel is pretty industrial with exposed rafters and brick; from the restaurant there are many huge brewery tanks in full view; excellent. There's also a nice misted/shaded outdoor area.

Service up at the bar is good and friendly and my bartender gave good recommendations.

This is a that working brewery also features a sizable eatery with patio seating. The quality of the beer is average to slightly above average. The service was good. The selection includes thirteen year round beers, seasonal and special releases. The food menu is focused on burgers and pizza.

Post Cubs game food... Nachos were tops... four peaks is a good solid choice for a group. There is enough variety for everyone to find something they like...

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.

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.
