You'd think that beer fans might've cooled off on Arizona Wilderness by now, a few years after a red-hot start when they were called 2013's best new brewery by RateBeer.com. But beer fans not only love beverage-rating even more than their counterparts in the wine and spirits world — they appear to be loyal, too. Granted, it's easy when a brewery keeps you on your toes like Wilderness does, with their undying commitment to experimentation, all while cycling in the Valley's best grains (durum wheat, organic barley), fruits (citrus, peaches), spices (so many), and even vegetables (sweet potatoes, beets) for their beers — and then often aging them in esoteric barrels (gin, scotch, tequila, French oak). They've also collaborated with the world's best breweries. The operation darts in so many directions that it will make your head spin just looking at their daily offerings — and that's before the first sip. You can't get their beer on tap outside of their own operation quite yet, but they've been steadily upping their canning and bottling, and that's been a huge step for those who may not be able to make a habit out of driving to Gilbert to drink beer.
