Tempe has an eclectic and impressive culinary scene from college town staples of pizza and burgers to upscale dining. What ties these all together is the ever growing selection of microbreweries around town. Here are some of the best craft breweries in Tempe:
1340 E 8th Street, #104
Four Peaks started in 1994 when they took over the original F.A. Hough’s Ice Factory that stood since 1892 and housed a dairy creamery, and later, recording studio. This charming red brick building now houses their entire brewing operations, a large bar and sunny outdoor patio. Take a tour of their facility then enjoy one of their many award-winning beers.
730 S Mill Avenue, #102
Pedal Haus is a Mill Avenue restaurant, brewery and entertainment destination. This 14,000 sq. ft. bike-friendly building features hand-crafted European-style beers, a gastropub food menu, one of Tempe’s largest patios and three indoor and outdoor bar options. You won’t go wrong picking a beer here either – since opening in 2015, Pedal Haus has won more than two dozen medals at the Great American Beer Festival.
1920 E University Drive, Ste 104
Since 2009, Sleepy Dog Brewing has produced handcrafted, specialty craft beers that have helped it become a staple in Arizona among beer and dog fans alike. Recently remodeled, the brewery’s tap room, The Dog House, is now a dog-friendly environment! Bring your pooch and enjoy a Wet Snout Milk Stout or Tail Chase IPA.
1520 W Mineral Road, #102
Founded in Tempe in 2013, Huss Brewing has grown to be one of the state’s largest independent brewers.

Opened in 2013, the Blasted Barley is the first locally owned microbrewery on Mill Avenue.
