Four Peaks Brewing Company

1340 E. 8th St. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-303-9967

Location Description:

The building that houses Four Peaks Brewery was once home to a dairy. That was a long time ago, though. This Tempe institution has been serving food and handcrafted suds in their unique 1892 Mission-style warehouse since 1996. Four Peaks' popularity has grown over the years, which is why you'll likely be halted at the door by business-like hostesses on any weekend night. Even with the expansion of the indoor dining room, it's still packed. Four Peaks is a well-regarded brewer with an extensive bottling operation, and you can try all eight of their year-round beers on tap at all times, along with whatever seasonal brew hasn't yet been chugged down by growler-wielding die-hards. The place is always bustling during happy hour, but half-off beers make it worth the wait. Bar food aplenty and scads of flat-screens let you watch the game inside, and the shady patio is perfect for outside day-drinking before the masses show up.
