The Spot: San Tan Brewing Company, 8 S. San Marcos Place, Chandler. 480-917-8700. www.santanbrewing.com
Hours: 2 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; Reverse Happy Hour is 9 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday
Details: They keep it simple: All San Tan pints are $3.75 each, and everything behind the bar -- yes, everything -- is $1 off. Select appetizers, like the Buffalo wings, Downtown Sliders, and Chips & Dip Trio, are down to $6 apiece. We asked our server for appetizer recommendations and took his advice, going with the Cilantro Lime Hummus (served with tortilla chips, pita, olives, grape tomatoes, and cucumbers) and crispy Onion Rings and Zucchini. Despite the crowds, our appetizers came out of the kitchen faster than fast food, and in generous portions.
