PHX Beer Co.’s Downtown Taproom Puts the Brewery on View

by Adam Wojcik

It has been a few years since PHX Beer Co.’s Brewery and Taproom in Downtown Phoenix became a fan favorite addition to the craft beer scene in Arizona. 

Since its opening in 2019, the staff has been working to expand the taproom’s menu, adding sharable items such as house-made chips and salsa plus the pretzel bites paired with Arizona Gold cheese fondue and Iron Horse Porter mustard. 

Guests stopping in for a quick lunch can also indulge in an oven-roasted brat or a selection of flatbreads like the Melrose, served with house sauce and a secret mixture of cheese blend, and the Sonoran, served with calabrese salami, mushrooms, mozzarella, red sauce and Hatch chili jam.

To wash down these delicious bites, PHX Beer Co. offers 12 year-round beers, among them the Arizona Gold, Sunset Sour, Bird City Lager and award-winning Monsoon IPA. Guests can keep up to date on the changing selection of limited releases on PHX Beer Co.’s Instagram site.

The brewers at PHX Beer Co. also create beers to pair with standout menu items, like the fan favorite Monsoon IPA paired with the Brew House Flatbread. The Brew House is made with pepperoni, so the kick of the IPA brings out the spice of the meat while also balancing the saltiness. 

At the Downtown Taproom, guests can dine in the main area, furnished with both high- and low-top tables and a full bar. Off to the side of the taproom, there are barn doors that can transform the space for private events, large parties and more. The entire tap room can also be rented out. Additionally, garage doors open to the brewery so guests can get a front row seat to the beer making process. 

For longer lunches and teambuilding opportunities, there are interactive elements at the restaurant that include games of cornhole, darts, foosball and shuffleboard.
