Four Peaks Brewing Company, Tempe
A story on lifestyle website Thrillist recently ranked the top 10 breweries in Arizona. And here's something that won't shock many of our state's beer drinkers: Four Peaks Brewing Company in Tempe took the top spot.
Four Peaks has been around since 1996 and is a longtime favorite of Tempe residents and Arizona State University students. Several of its beers, including its iconic Kiltlifter and 8th Street Ale, are bottled and sold at retail locations statewide. The brewery has also expanded to locations in Scottsdale and at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, plus a tasting room elsewhere in Tempe.
One brewery that surprisingly didn't make the list was Flagstaff's Beaver Street Brewery, where you can't go wrong with the oatmeal stout, if you ask us. Rankings such as this one are entirely subjective, though, so you tell us: What's the best brewery in Arizona? Leave your answer in the comments.
