A few weeks ago we traveled to Arizona for some sun, hiking, and relaxation. Also on our list of things to do was to try out some of the local brews.
First we visited Arizona Wilderness Brewing, which had an interesting array of beers to choose from. Bryce ordered Brettanomyces Imperial Stout, and while it smelled like a Cider it tasted unlike anything we’d ever tried before. Definitely not a beer for everyday drinking, but something unique for those who are more adventurous.
Later in the week we made the trek up to Grand Canyon National Park, as I have always wanted to go. On our way we stopped in Williams and had dinner at Historic Brewing Barrel+Bottle House. We were pleasantly surprised at the great selection of beers, other beverages, and delicious food. Their branding was on point as well. I'm not usually into brewery gear, but I seriously considered purchasing a few items. This place is truly a gem and if you ever find yourself on the way to the Grand Canyon, make sure to check this place out on your way. Bryce tried the Deer Lord altbier and absolutely loved it.
We also shared a flight of beers called The Seven Dwarves at the Oak Creek Brewery in Sedona.
Even with all these awesome options, sometimes old standbys like Corona with lime, Modelo, or Pacifico hit the spot on a hot day after a long hike.
