Nice place, bar area and patio are pretty cool, right on the tracks downtown, beer and food were good but nothing too special. Staff was great. Prices were pretty reasonable as well. Good place to take the college kids with the rest of the family or a place for the adults to hang.

Enjoyed two good beers here, a porter and a good lager. The beer selection could have been a bit better, as could the service but both were fine. Food selection was great and all in my part seemed to enjoy theirs, even a three year old boy!

Pretty good vibe. One of the bartenders was pretty good. One was a bit inattentive to put it nicely. later in the restaurant had great service from to of the servers. Beers range from ok to quite good- Abineau Imperial Amber and Knotty Pine Pale Ale. Food was excellent and fairly well priced. I definitely recommend eating here. Vietnamese Burger, Pozole, and even their fries were all excellent.

Was passing through Flagstaff on a Grand Canyon road trip, did a quick search for breweries in the area, and ended up giving this one a shot. You can tell it's a local favorite; even on a Sunday night it was fairly busy, but the wait was very reasonable. They had a nice beer selection with a style for just about anybody to go along with a solid menu with some cool unique items as well as some brew pub standards. The beer was alright though nothing special, but the food was great.

Stopped here with the family after a day of hiking around the Grand Canyon. Pulled in around 8 on a Wednesday and the place was pretty empty. They don't have the biggest selection, I think maybe 9 of their beers were on tap, but the flight I tried was solid across the board. Nothing that totally blew me away, but definitely good. The food was pretty stellar. Our sandwiches and burgers were awesome. They also had a kid's menu, which was nice. Staff was friendly, service was good, prices were very reasonable, and they have a fridge with six-packs and bombers to go.

Always a great and dependable place to stop for food and beer. Not always a huge selection of taps but the beer is fresh and the staff is friendly. Love stopping in during some winter weather and sipping a beer and watching the snow fall.

After a 6 hour hike down and back up in the Grand Canyon, the wife and I wanted a cold beer. Quickly googled breweries in Flagstaff and found this place. The place has hoping but the service was quick and friendly. Solid beer selection, they had a hefeweizen which is the wife's favorite. I liked the ipa. Would go back anything I am in the area again.

The beers here are all solid and enjoyable (albeit not as good as Mother Road right down the street). But the interior feels very much like a chain restaurant and dirty college bar and this is only compounded by the full liquor bar. I suppose for some, this is great since it provides more options and perhaps a more fun environment, but it certainly detracts from the beer.

But again, the beer's good here. Here are my recollections (with help from Untappd) of the brews I tried:

Red Ale- A respectable beer. Malty with a slight hop character. I could enjoy this on occasion, although Red Ales aren't my go-to beer. 3.5/5

Rasberry Ale- Light, wheaty with a fruity profile, although I didn't immediately think raspberry. Not my style or preference, but tolerable. 3/5

Pilsner- Again, a decent beer, if nothing remarkable. I don't remember getting a lot of the spiciness and bite that I usually expect from the hops in a pilsner, but it was smooth and crisp, as it should be. 3.5/5

American Brown- I remember liking it, but not being blown away. The roasted brown malt notes were subdued and didn't suggest much as far as coffee, chocolate or other flavors. 3.5/5

High Water Imperial IPA- Smooth and drinkable for an IPA, but this really didn't have the a compelling aroma or a lot of hop character on the tongue. It was smooth and creamy and had a good malt profile, which normally I like in an IPA as I want some balance, but strangely, the hops here weren't what I was looking for. Still, drinkable and good. 3.5/5

As I said before, you'll get some good beers here, but nothing so memorable or midn-blowing as to require a return trip.
