At the time of my visit they offered ales only (their ales), alongside a nice but short list of guest taps. I found their beers fresh, somewhat flavorful for their styles, but nothing that really made me want to come back for more of the same. I'll try their newer offerings and continue to see where they go, because their first few batches sufficiently caught my interest. Also they had very few house beers to choose from relative to the norm for brewpubs out there today.

Pizza was above average for brewpub food. Service was impeccably good on my visit. Atmosphere is modern and somewhat industrial-looking to me, in a very good way. Plenty of parking in the back.

Lot of potential. Wish they did lagers and had some German or Belgian styles of house brews.

A gem in the city of Scottsdale, Fate Brewing offers a multitude of quality styles and a cozy atmosphere. Small food plates are offered along with their dozen beers, ranging from a golden ale and Vienna lager to an Irish Red and Export Stout. Not much in the way of a really strong beer, but a number of very easy drinking beers available.The hatch chile version of their golden ale was very fun to drink as well as their hoppy Red Ale. I would have loved to spend more time at this place, however dinner plans got in the way.

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. The bar is large and modern with a nice vibe. 12 of their own beers on tap with a nice cross section of styles. I didn't have any food. I'd be happy to hang out here if I lived in the neighborhood

Cool, low key, inline strip mall spot. They only had 4 of their own beers on when I was there, but they had some cool guest drafts. Great brick oven pizza that goes great with good beer. Server was cool and attentive. I would go back any time I was in the area for sure.

Service was good.

Food was fair.

Beer was underwhelming and very few options to choose from.

Cream of the crop in AZ, as far as I'm concerned, and with a huge 2nd location set to open in Summer of 2015. This review is for the original location, a cozy little joint with window views of the 7 BBL system, as well as a brick oven pizza in back (excellent pizzas here). Beer is high quality, staff is friendly, vibe is great, pretty much what you'd want in a nice little neighborhood brewpub...well, that and excellent beer, which is available in spades.

Fantastic brewery, still hits and misses but as a small batch brewery they really have more quality than misses. They are doing things older breweries wished they could accomplish, Steve McFate is a seriously great guy as well!
