vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | food: 4.5

The atmosphere of this brewpub is cozy, but maybe a little crowded. If you go when they are not too busy, the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. When they are busy, it is a little more work to maneuver around the tables and chairs.

The quality of the beer and food is very good. The beer is brewed there, and the food is cooked when ordered.

The service there is very good since the place is not too big. If you go there often, it is easy to learn the waiters' names. You are treated well, and they are always ready to refill your beer glass.

The selection of beer is very good as it is all brewed there. They have 8 taps: 6 of them are regulars and two are for seasonal brews. I've had many of the regulars and enjoyed most of them, and the seasonals are also good.

Most of the times I've gone have been during happy hour, so the selection of foods then to get the discount is a little limited. However, their menu is full of a variety of things from regular bar food to slightly healthier items if you search for them.

Sun Up has a good overall value as it follows the same pricing as other places I've been to. The beers and food cost more than I think they should, but the prices are reasonable since the food and drinks are made at the brewpub.

This may be my favorite brewpub in the Phoenix area.

White russian is an amazing imperial stout! Creamy chocolate with a touch of espresso in the finish.

Meso Happy IPA and Hair of the Monk with Cherries Belgian Trippel were awesome.
