Lovecraft

Craft beer bars are pretty similar. Large beer selection. Local stuff. Lots of taps. Lovecraft injects a dose of personality to the Phoenix craft beer bar. Its theme is New Mexican. Fiery chiles lace the mac-n-cheese, lobster bisque, and burritos, and a ristra dangles by the entrance. Its small glass chandeliers and mismatched mirrors and chairs make the place feel almost like an antique shop. Lovecraft’s beer menu is big, yes: more than 100 brews deep. Local favorites abound, like The Shop’s Church Music and Arizona Wilderness’s La Ciudad. But co-owner Rebecca Golden also manages to snag hard-to-find regional offerings, like a fruited Berliner Weisse from Tombstone Brewing or limited sours from Oklahoma’s Prairie Artisan Ales. The cider selection also contains some real gems, like a perry (pear cider) from Ace Cider (California) and rotating releases from Crush Craft Ciders in Tempe.
