Copper Blues: Happy Hour Report Card

The Spot: Copper Blues Rock Pub & Kitchen, 50 W. Jefferson St., Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85003. (480) 719-5005. www.copperblueslive.com

The Hours: 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday

The Details: Eleven appetizer selections are divided into three categories ranging from $4-6. At the low end are choices like the Copper Blues Wings tossed in Honey Hot Sauce, while the high end sports the Fried Shrimp with Sweet and Spicy Sauce (plus three small pizzas). House wines are only $2, while Call Cocktails, Crafted Rocktails, and Crafted Rocktinis are down to $5, $6, and $7, respectively. But let's face it, you're here for the beer. Located upstairs at Cityscape next to the Stand Up Live comedy club, this bar is known for two things: live music and more than 60 beers on tap. At happy hour, domestic and local pints are only $3, while craft pints are $4. You can check out the extensive beer menu online (it's a pretty hefty thing). It's the beer shots, though, that will steal your affection (and very little from your wallet): Get a decent-sized tasting portion of just about any beer on the menu for only $1 (those rich, premium brews with 8%-plus alcohol content go for $2).
