Hit this place with a bunch of friends prior to an ASU football game. It's literally a block away from Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena.

Like many places in AZ, it's open air with a patio stretching on to the sidewalk.

The service was great. The attractive woman practically ran to the bar and back to fill drink orders and was particuarly good when the place got packed an hour before kickoff.

As for the beers - only 4 were available...stout, IPA, wheat & something else. The beers weren't bad & didn't have serious style flaws, but weren't that memorable either. Nachos were very middle-of-the-road.

I'd come back again for another pre-game gathering, but that's about it. Even then Gordon Biersch and 4 Peaks are walkable from the stadium too.

I've tried this place multiple times and *want* to like it, but nearly everything about this place is very forgettable.

The service has been atrocious on every visit, whether it is neglect or outright attitude for no good reason. The servers no almost nothing about beer and seem to be better chosen for their ability to function as eye candy.

Beers are mediocre at best, and somewhat odd for their names - the IPA isn't hoppy, and is in fact one of the lowest IBU beers on the list. It doesn't make sense.

They seem to tolerate smokers here on the patio but then it basically blows into the "indoor" bar area and so it's like the old days in Arizona when bars were intolerable because of all the smoke. The other side of the restaurant away from the bar opens up as well, and again the smoking problem persists.

Food has been mediocre on each visit and sometimes takes a long time even for simple items such as an order of fries.

There are other breweries in the area that are far better. I think this place will only survive if they can keep the ASU kids happy since this is pretty much one block from campus & some of the dorms, as well as two stadiums. This is certainly not a worthwhile stop for any BA who is serious about good beer and a good drinking/dining experience.
