San Tan Brewing Company Today

It's illegal in nine countries. And it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good. Just kidding, but San Tan Brewing's Sex Panther porter does take its name from the pungent, aphrodisiacal cologne featured in the original Anchorman movie. The beer is a late-winter seasonal double chocolate porter that's become a favorite of Valley beer geeks. It's been available in cans since January 7, but as of today will be available on tap for a limited time at San Tan Brewing Company in Chandler. For more information, visit the San Tan Brewery website.

The Herb Box Wednesday, January 1

The best part about New Year's Day brunch at The Herb Box is probably that it's not even asking you to change out of your pajamas. Well, that and its red velvet pancakes. The restaurant's Southbridge location will serve brunch from 9 to 11 a.m., as well as offer a complimentary Detox Green Smoothie Soup with organic spinach, mint, parsley, celery, and ginger, plus a free cake pop to celebrate the restaurant's third anniversary. But we've got a few more ideas for your brunching needs including Essence Bakery Cafe (both locations) and District American Kitchen and Wine Bar in downtown Phoenix. To see them all check out our list of 6 New Year's Day Brunch Options in Metro Phoenix.

Ollie Vaughn's

If your New Year's resolution involves something along the lines of "eating healthier," you'll be happy to know that Ollie Vaughn's is now open in Central Phoenix. The quaint sandwich shop from former Lux baker Lindsey Magee offers baked goods, prepackaged salads, and sandwiches. Grilled cheese with chard, chicken with apples and pecans and flank steak with caramelized onion and goat cheese are some of the sandwich options, all of which can be ordered up on a variety of freshly made breads. We tried the watercress salad and a few of the pastry treats, you can read all about our first impressions here.
