I’ve found that one of the best things about Tempe is how it has a little of everything. Tempe is full of locally-owned and operated businesses, one of the many things I love about this city.
Four Peaks Brewing Company is one of the most recognizable names in the valley. Not only has everyone heard of it, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love their beer. To keep up with their ever increasing demand, Four Peaks recently opened up the Four Peaks Taproom on Wilson, located right in the heart of Tempe. Unlike its 8th Street location, the Taproom isn’t very restaurant-like. So if you’re in the area and in the mood for a burger or fries, you won’t find it here.
It’s more industrial and behind the scenes with regards to its look and feel. There’s a small eating area that overlooks the warehouse. You can see the kettles and the fermenters that are there on site, brewing their hearts out. I was told the plan is to expand in the coming months, adding more equipment by June (hopefully). They also plan on expanding the restaurant area.
Even though there is no kitchen onsite, you can call in an order from most local restaurants that deliver. Menus are available to browse through before you place your order. They also have a different food truck there every night, where you can grab some great food if that’s what you happen to be in the mood for.
If you’re looking for someplace quiet to grab a drink, definitely stop by the Four Peaks Taproom on Wilson.
