Four Peaks Brewery for the All Star Game
Headed to Tempe tonight to watch the travesty that was the baseball All Star Game at the popular Four Peaks Brewery ( 8th St. in Tempe between Rural and the 101 ).
First time for me and it was pretty cool. Reminded me of my old college days. *sniff*
Sat at the bar inside and was promptly attended to with a Sunbru Kolsch. Very nice. Good for summer drinking. Ordered the shrimp bruschetta. Wow. This was an appetizer and was certainly enough for a meal. House-made focaccia bread topped with ripe plum tomatoes, basil, parmesan, and huge chunks of garlic - and quite a bit of it. Served along with 5 citrus marinated, grilled shrimp.
Very tasty I have to say and a huge portion. I ened up with that, the Sunbru, and a couple of hefeweizen. $2.75 beers and moderately priced apps. $19.00 total bill. I will definitely head back for the atmosphere and to further investigate the food
Glad you liked it! I think they do much better than average bar food -- not to mention better than average beers. They usually have a cask-conditioned ale and a seasonal variety, those are nice to try; my favorite being winter's Blind Date which is a 12% alcohol date beer. For apps I am addicted to their Thai Wings and I have been known to pout if no one orders fries for the table. Fish & chips (beer-battered, of course), their bleu cheese burger, and their chicken sandwich, made with the same house beer bread, are also very good.
I've always been ready for a let down at four peaks, but it never happens. There's not many places to get a better combo of good food, good beer, and great prices. Considering the fact that you'd spend just as much at T.G.I.Friday's or Chili's I think its remarkable.
