We already told you Tempe's Four Peaks Brewery is getting ready to release its Pumpkin Porter next month, but the debut of the fan-favorite beer isn't the only thing the brewery has to show off this fall. Head to the brewery's original Tempe location, and you'll notice a few not-so-small changes — namely, a 2,000-square-foot expansion that includes a retail space, new bar, expanded patio, and growler-filling station.
According to the brewery, the expansion means beer lovers will now enter through the gift shop on the east side of the building instead of to the west. And in case you're wanting to rep your love for your local brewery in style, look for a gift shop stocked with bottle openers, postcards, key chains, glassware, shirts, and more.
The additional space also means a larger waiting area with a bocce ball court, Adirondack chairs, and bourbon barrel tables. Finally, there's a new 20-tap bar and a Gruber automated growler-filling station.
And if all that doesn't have you excited, then there's also this: To celebrate the addition, Four Peaks is offering a gift card promotion. From now until Thursday, August 25, if you buy a $50 gift card you'll get a $10 bonus card. Buy $100 and you get a $25 bonus card.
There will also be special beer tappings all week, including rare favorites like Double Knot, 2012 Hopsquatch, and barrel-aged Cherry Porter, as well as a raffle to win a Four Peaks-wrapped Kegerator, and prizes and giveaways all week long.
