    AZ top 3 brewery advice (Flagstaff/Sedona/Prescott area)

    I did a thread search and couldn't find any specific recommendations on beer in the area. I'm going to be in the Sedona area in a week and was wondering what top 3 breweries you guys would recommend? I did a bit of research and they all look pretty good, but who has the best beer in your opinion?

    btw, tons of awesome beta and info in the stickies, well done!

    When you're in flag do this: go to Mother Road Brewing Microbrewery in Flagstaff Arizona and have a black IPA. Then go to Flagstaff Bicycle Revolution. Northern Arizona's community cycling destenation. a bike shop that shares the building with the brewery and get some trail beta. Hungry? Order a pizza from Pizzicletta also in the same building and eat it at Mother road. Beer, bikes, and pizza under the same roof. What could be better?

    For real? No, I mean, really, for real?

    I took one drink of that vile swill and poured the rest down the drain. I wouldn't take another if you paid me.

    Sucks to be you. Let me guess, your beer of choice includes a piece of fruit?

    Being a brewer in AZ, my favorites are Oak Creek (Sedona), Four Peaks(Tempe), Lumberyard(Flag), and Mother Road (Flag) in that order.

    I'm curious about this. Where did you buy the beer from?

    I believe it was the Sunflower on 7th and Bell in PHX. It would have been about a year ago that I bought it.

    It might have been rank, but I just remember it tasting bitter, like a strong IPA. I hate IPA anyway, so that's no shock. The other people I gave the rest of the six to didn't complain.

    That's what the bottle I had said. I explicitly remember it being nut brown and having a bad taste. It happens, I'll try other stuff from them, but the nut brown is a forever no go for me.

    ^^^fails to realize that 110% of all mountain bikers drink beer.

    P.S. Tecate is not brewed in Arizona.

    That's not Nut Brown, I can tell you that much.

    One of the things I see a lot in PHX is stores storing beer on a shelf rather than in a cooler. Don't buy warm beer. Best case scenario, the flavors will be off and worst case you'll wind up with mud butt. Either way, it's no good.

    Wanderlust Brewery in Flagstaff for something not designed for Maricopa County....only open Thurs and Fri night right now...but you can get them at Hops on Birch in Flagstaff as well as other locations....drank his Belgian at Diablo Burger just this last week.....yum.

    Oak Creek Brewery....go to the brewery, not the tap room at Tlaquepaque....free pop corn....much better beer that you can only get there and not at the tap room or in bottles....plus you have good hot dogs

    Mother Road Brew.....as 77 said above....pizza, beer and bikes in the same building....what can go wrong?
