- Four Peaks Brewery is an Arizona brewery and restaurant. The original and main location is in an old creamery and warehouse on 8th Street in Tempe, Arizona, about 1/2 mile east of the campus of Arizona State University. Nearby Scottsdale, Arizona boasts an additional location, and, in response to high demand (nearly 40,000 barrels in 2012 alone), another Tempe brewing site opened in the summer of 2012. The Tempe site was selected following a review of 25 potential sites, including the famed Sunkist facility in Mesa, Arizona and numerous warehouses in downtown Phoenix.The original Tempe location has a small display of Minnesota Viking and Elvis Presley paraphernalia. The brewing equipment is visible in the northern and western sections of this historical property. The building was built in 1892 as an ice plant. The current architecture dates back to 1927 when it was remodeled in a Mission Revival style. It served as a creamery until 1953.The selection at the brewery varies, but several favorites (Kilt Lifter and 8th Street Ale) are available on tap, in bottles, in cans at local bars, and restaurants throughout the Southwestern United States. The brewery usually also has one or more Real ale ready to serve, and depending on the season, cult favorites like Pumpkin Porter may also be available.

One Chicago retailer has opted not to sell SweetWater Brewing’s imperial stout known as “Happy Ending” over what its store manager called “sexist, borderline racist” label art, according to the Chicago Tribune. The label in question depicts a clear silhouette of a geisha and a box of tissues, an apparent allusion to the seedy practice of receiving sexual favors at massage parlors. According to the article, the Binny’s Beverage Depot in Lincoln Park sent back three cases of the beer, which is packaged in 22 oz. bottles. Lakeshore Beverage, SweetWater’s wholesaler in the area, told the Tribune that no other store declined to stock the beer.

Senate Bill (SB) 1030, dubbed the “Arizona Beer Bill”, passed in the Senate Commerce Committee Monday with a 6-2 vote. The proposal? Allow Arizona brewers to maintain their additional brewing, restaurant and retail locations once production volumes exceed 40,000 barrels.
For many small breweries, taprooms provide an imperative part of the business equation, inventing additional revenue streams while creating invaluable marketing opportunities. In fact, there has been an industry-wide recognition of that prospect, according to Bart Watson, chief economist of the Brewers Association, who argues that the manufacturer/taproom has even superseded the brewpub as a preferred business model.
