If you go there, first read about it. It was a Funeral Home at one time so naturally we wanted a tour of the basement. It shows no signs of the way it once was because that is where they brew the beer. It was so very interesting. The young man who toured us was awesome.

We had beers here after touring the Reformatory on a Saturday. Got there mid-afternoon and got seats at the bar. Ryan was pouring that day and was great to talk to since they weren't busy (that all changed later). We ordered flights and sampled most of the beers they offer. 90% were very good.
The inside of PBC is very cool; between the heritage of the building and the brewing decor it definitely has a cool vibe. The only drawback is the location of the restrooms; they are in a tight area behind a row of seats at the bar, and the area gets very congested.
Things started hoppin around 5, and before you know it there wasn't a seat to be had. I'm glad they had a lot of business but we enjoyed it more when it wasn't crowded and you could hear the music channel (which was excellent).
We will definitely be back the next time we are in the Mansfield area.

It was really hot while we were here, so we opted to sit inside. Got a couple flights & liked the beer. No food, but you can bring in your own. Unique venue... used to be a mortuary.

it looked really cool on the out side and the inside was nice too. However, no one came to the table and no one took our order at the bar so we left.

OK my first response to my visit to Phoenix Brewing Company in Mansfield is wow…wow…wow.

There really aren’t enough superlatives to describe this place.

First, the venue: Downtown Mansfield in an old furniture store/mortuary. Yes, you read that right: mortuary! Complete with embalming room. (One of their best beers is the “Embalming Fluid” which is a 2X IPA).

We were lucky enough to be given a tour of the place and the person conducting it admitted that some of the staff have had…“experiences” that are not of this world. In fact, Carmen, who is the wife of one of the founders, admitted that she once was going up the stairs when she tripped…and felt a hand on her shoulder. She said the hand steadied her and probably kept her from falling. Other staff members have admitted similar experiences of being touched by someone who…isn’t there.

Possible explanation: It turns out that the mortuary owner took his own life in the building at some point after he learned he had a terminal disease. As if being a mortuary wasn’t creepy enough!

Possible supernatural influences aside, Phoenix Brew is, to date, the ~BEST~ craft brewery I have visited — by a wide measure, frankly.

The building has been completely refurbished, with the brewery equipment located in the basement. The building has unusually high ceilings for the time period (1914). Not to go into too much detail, but the high ceilings served a purpose related to the building’s function as a mortuary. We’ll leave it at that!

The main floor is tastefully refurbished as a taproom, and is on par with many other brewpubs that are housed in repurposed old brick buildings. It appears, though, that Phoenix probably took the extra step of sandblasting and/or tuckpointing the brick – inside and out. I also have to give them ~huge~ kudos for installing modern, comfortable restrooms. This is one of my brewpub pet peeves: a lot of places skimp on bathrooms. Lert’s face it: You drink enough beer and you’re eventually going to need to use the restroom! I give Phoenix tons of credit for recognizing that clean, modern, functional restrooms are NOT an afterthought.

The beers. Oh…the beers. I usually do one flight then chose a brew I want to drink. Not here. My buddy and I did two+ flights here and…um…delved much deeper into the beer offerings than we normally do. P.S. the beer paddles are shaped like little coffins — another nod to the building’s history.

Frankly, we found the staff and patrons so friendly, and the beers so good that we simply didn’t want to leave. We were there for a few hours and ended up leaving like we were old friends. We will go back. Soon.

The beers at Phoenix Brewing are quite clearly the result of a great deal of research and testing. No doubt this is because one of the partners has a strong background in chemistry. Hello, Heisenberg? Think, “Breaking Bad Brews Beer.”

It would take a lot longer than I want to make this review to detail what I liked about each beer that we sampled, but I will say two things: First, these folks do several exceptional IPAs. Second, if you visit here and do not try the “Krampus Kandy” you have missed something truly special.

Food: There is no kitchen, but pizza and some other items are available in the pub. The night we were here there also was an excellent food wagon parked directly behind the brewery (something that is a regular happening). I have forgotten the name, or I would gladly reference it here. I had a burrito that was filled with barbecue, mac-n-cheese and Fritos. It was excellent.

In sum, these are truly excellent craft beers, served by extremely friendly people in an friendly, welcoming environment. If I lived closer, Phoenix Brewing Company would be my hangout, hands down. This place is an absolute “must visit.”

If you are in the Mansfield area and you enjoy a nice micro brewery you will surely enjoy this place. Danger City is my recommendation for starters.

Great atmosphere and great folks.

Such an awesome place to meet friends/family and enjoy a night out. The owners have gone all out to ensure that the building retains much of its historical bones and even embraces its roots. The coffin shaped servers for the beer flights are truly unique! Love the variety of beers offered and they have some good wine as well.

This is a nice watering hole for anyone local or just visiting. They brew there own beer here and there's a flavor for most beer connoisseurs to like. They also serve other drinks that are tasty as well. Definitely worth checking out!
