Located just a mere 3 miles from The Sky Harbor airport you can find a brewery that should be your first destination when you disembark your flight into Phoenix. Set in a renovated electrical distribution warehouse, The Phoenix Ale Brewery is the ideal place to spend a Saturday afternoon. The large tasting room is lined with windows that overlook the inner workings of the brewery’s production floor.
There is more than just great ambiance available at this establishment, you can also obtain some pretty delicious craft beers! With up to 14 Beers on draft (at least 7 of them brewed in house) you are bound to find your next favorite brew.
On this visit I opted for a pint of their flagship beer, the Camelback IPA. This English style Indian Pale weighs in at a 6.1% ABV with a cloudy amber appearance. It has a well-balanced hoppy, bitter flavor with a captivating floral and citrus aroma. A 32 oz Crowler of this IPA makes the perfect souvenir. The Watermelon Ale and Orange Peel IPA are also both worth a sample.
Are you looking for a unique place to celebrate a life event? The tasting room is also available for private parties and here is the best part… Typically there is no charge – just a minimum tab requirement per person and you provide the food. The space is available Monday – Saturday after 7 PM and Sunday after 6 PM (call for details).
Taproom Hours: Monday – Saturday 12 -7 PM, Sunday 2 – 6 PM
