One Pint of Up N' Runnin' @ Four Peaks Brewing Co.

Brewers from Mother Road Beer, Mischief Brewing Company, Freak'n Brew, Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co, North Mountain Brewing Company, That Brewery & Pub, OHSO Brewery, Fate Brewing Company, Granite Mountain Brewing, and Desert Eagle all pitched in on the very first "Collabru" to create a very special English summer ale with spicy hints of pink peppercorn. The beer, AKA Up N' Runnin', is now on tap for everyone to try at the Tempe location.
