First time at this place - being a craft brewer myself this was a must experience. Tucked away in an economically challenged neighborhood you wouldn't expect to see micro-brewery/restaurant. But there it sits - the old Borden's Creamery converted to a micro-brewery. We took a table outdoors and street side under the umbrellas and misters.
I had the Raj IPA and Hop Knoct IPA both excellent if you enjoy hoppy beers which I love. My wife had the Sunbru - light and refreshing it wasn't bad to my palet but she loved it heaps because it wasn't too heavy.
The food was excellent - I had the pizza she had the eggs Benedict. Both would certainly be repeat meals and we weren't disappointed. My wife also had desert - the Stoutamisu - EXCELLENT!! The portion size was HUGE - I got stuck into as well - very rich. Between the two of us we could only eat half.
No room for improvement on the service. The manager Terry Pepper even stopped by the table to see how we liked things. Picked his brain a bit on beers. The inside you could see all tanks in the brewery - shame we couldn't go behind the scenes but they are setup for it.
Being close to ASU I believe like many customers and workers were students.
My only quibble, and reason for dropping it back to a 4 out of 5 was the place is very small and from what I was told always packed so arrive during off peak hours. Street parking is also hard to find. The outdoors seating area was very tight and street side so car fumes, load bikes going by and people smoking made for a bit of discomfort. And we had lot of flys buzzing around during our meal. Flys have been especially bad in Phoenix this year and because of the open air style restaurant/bar I'm sure a few flies were buzzing around inside as well.
This is a must drink and eat place if you live in Phoenix area.
