I realize I've been on a beer and wine kick lately, but obviously things are a little crazy here at New Times these days. I promise, I have been downing nothing but Tazo tea as I sit here typing away.
So I just heard from a local distributor called Little Guy Distributing, announcing all the Great American Beer Festival medals garnered by some of the breweries it distributes. (The big shindig took place last weekend in Denver.)
What are some of the local bars that serve these prize drinks? I asked Chuck Noll from Little Guy, and he told me that although most of the 14 brews are only available at local retail/specialty shops, there are a few offered up at Valley watering holes.
Among the spots serving Flying Dog are Yard House, Teakwoods, Finns Beach Food and Fun, Boney Maroney's, and Baseline Sports Bar. Steamworks is available at Yard House, Old Chicago, Indigo Joes, Red White and Brew, and Two Glass Eyes. And you can find Thunder Canyon, a Tucson product, at Bar Bianco, Red White and Brew, Original Wineburger, Finns Beach Food and Fun, and Blue Sky Coffee House.
