Best "sweet spot" Sports Bar (Beer/Food v. Viewing) - PHX

I am trying to find my sweet spot for a sports bar. I am looking for very good beer on tap, above average food and a nice TV set-up. I would love to find a sports bar with Papago Brewing beer selection and Fox Sports Grill's TV set up along with good bar food grub.

Papago's TV set up leaves a bit to be desired, while Fox Sports Grill's beer selection is rather pedestrian (Guinness/Sam Adams type selection).

Also, I am located close to Shea and the 51, so the closer the better.

  1. I've never been to either of the places you mentioned, but what about the Yardhouse at Desert Ridge?

      Yardhouse's beer selection is certainly better than Fox Sports grill but it is amazing how they focus on quantity over quality), but the TV viewing can be problematic. You really need to get a seat at the bar right in front of the TV to be ensured a good view.
