You never know where your passions might lead you.

For beer aficionado Rob Sizemore, an obsession with suds turned into to a homebrewing hobby, which eventually led to proper training with the American Brewers Guild. Now he's working on opening his own microbrewery in Tempe, Sleepy Dog Saloon & Brewery, sometime this fall.

Customers can expect Sizemore's "Flying 7" beers on tap at all times: a blonde or pilsner, IPA, pale ale, stout, hefeweizen, amber, and porter. Rotating brews will include Irish red ale, Scottish strong ale, and pumpkin hefeweizen.

Sleepy Dog will also serve simple bar foods like hot dogs and chili dogs, nachos, and popcorn.

The brewery will be located at 1920 E. University in Tempe.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
