Changing Season Ushers In Seasonal Brews
Flagstaff does a lot of things right. From its clean air to its adventurous spirit and its friendly energy, Flagstaff still manages to make room for a thriving craft brewery scene. The scene in this mountain town is so good, it’s inspired a well-earned label as Arizona’s Craft Beer City.
And it lives up to the designation.
A number of local breweries have made names for themselves and gained fans outside of Flagstaff, but it’s the seasonal brews, infused with notable fall-themed flavors, that motivate increased interest in the local suds this time of year. And they’re all in Pine Canyon’s backyard, so to speak.
Lumberyard, for example, offers more than a half-dozen mainstays throughout the year, each with their own adoring fan base. And as the seasons change, the brewer issues seasonal brews, such as Oktoberfest Marzen in the fall and Snowbound Scotch Ale in the winter.
If you’re looking to explore Flagstaff through its changing, seasonal beers, you could work your way through our local scene sip by sip. Here’s a round-up of what’s out there.
- Mother Road Brewing Company offers seasonal beers but suggests visitors ask about them from their beer-loving servers. It’s worth a stop in to find out what’s on tap.
- Historic Barrel + Bottle House offers an assortment of seasonal and limited release beers, which tempts beer-lovers to visit often to taste what’s changed.
- Wanderlust Brewing also offers a selection of seasonal beers in addition to its occasional one-off cask creations. And, its taproom welcomes dogs and kids, which is a bonus.
- Flagstaff Brewing Company is a smaller brewery, offering a rotating selection of beers and a series of limited release brews. So, there’s a good chance you’ll see something new every time you visit.
