Description: In 2007, the historic Valley National Bank, in Downtown Chandler was transformed into a destination for Craft Beer and food lovers alike with the opening of SanTan Brewing Company. Our goal at the brewpub is to provide a neighborhood spot where family, friends, and colleagues can gather and enjoy a cold pint of freshly brewed beer using only the finest malts, hops, and barley! In addition to our core beers on draught year round, Brewmaster Anthony Canecchia keeps things exciting for SanTan fans by releasing specialty seasonal beers, small batch specialty beers, a weekly Cask Conditioned Ale as well as guest beers from brewers both local and around the nation. Like the Brewmaster says "Craft Beer for Beer Drinking".

“Excellent First Impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

A guest at the same hotel I was staying at suggested this place to me. I was not expecting to much but I was very happy with friendly staff and their own excellent micro brewed beer. I had a happy hour meal that worked for me. I would highly recommend this place. It is a bar and restaurant so it does play music and people are laughing loudly and generally having a good time. If you want a candle light diner for a first date this will not be your place but for a casual eating experience you can not go wrong going here.

“Solid, not spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We have been to many breweries being from Michigan and this one was ok but not great. We had excellent service but the food and beer was average at best. Open area seating with a lively atmosphere but it did nothing special for us.

“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a good place overall, and the food is pretty good too. The place is always packed which contributes to the thing that keeps this in the 3 star range for me however. The biggest issue I have with it is that it is wildly uncomfortable. The "background" music is always played at such a over-the-top volume it is impossible to have any sort of conversation, shouting or otherwise. It has many dark corners which translates to a one in three chance you will not like your table and might not be able to read the menu at night. While the open industrial/historic decor is great to look at, the acoustics are awful and the temperature is risky. The wait staff is young, always busy and not as attentive as one might hope. The beer is good.

“Perfect Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Awesome service, fantastic beer, creative and delicious menu. Favorite beer is Epicenter Amber. Favorite menu items: pork pibil, texican, fish and chips and yummy burgers. Fries are AWESOME. Atmosphere is fun, loud. Highly recommend.

“A must stop for great beer and even better food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

After a 4 day trip to Chandler, we realized between my husband and I that we ate there 7 times. Sometimes for apps and others for meals. We had something different every time and were never disappointed. My husband also did a brew tour and we tried all of their craft beers during our trip. Did not disappoint! We will be back again.
