Ten Favorite Metro Phoenix Craft Beer Bars
Let's discuss craft beer bars.We're not just talking about one or two handles here. We're taking about the bars that have devoted just about every handle to the art of craft beer; the folks that know that power of a freshly tapped keg of Hopslam and who would sell a large part of their soul to offer their Phoenix friends a taste of Russian River's Pliney the Younger.
Arizona Beer Week has sadly ended, but our thirst has not. And so we have put together a list of our favorite places to grab a cool pint of something hoppy, smoked, bourbon barrel aged, Belgium, imperial, or red. Cheers!
9. Delux Burger -- Whether your waiting for you burger or hanging out trying to look super hip and cool, Delux has a brew for you. Arizona brews have taken over the majority of the 40 handles but there are still plenty of our national faves waiting to be poured in to a frosty pint glass.
7. Flanny's Bar & Grill -- The folks at Flanny's like to keep only the best of the best on their 22 rotating handles. We've seen Dogfish 120 Minute, Bell's Hopslam, New Belgium Prickly Pear Saison, and Epic's Big Bad Baptist cross their lines lately and they always seemed to have their hand on the pulse of the good stuff. Watch out for their upcoming "Tap Takeovers" starting in April.
5. O.H.S.O -- Eighteen of O.H.S.O.'s 36 taps handles are dedicated to local beers while the other eighteen are stocked with a unique selection of national favorites from Epic, Lagunitas, Deschutes, Bell's, and more. Every Saturday and Sunday, they'll thrown in a free 10 oz. local beer with your breakfast. Yum!
