Explore Flagstaff Breweries
Intriguing to many for its 1.856-million-acre forest, Flagstaff is the ideal location for all things outdoors, all year long. From summers jampacked with hiking and camping to winters abundant with skiing and snowboarding. But after a long day of outdoor adventure, there is nothing quite like relaxing on a dog-friendly patio, enjoying a flight of locally made beer.
Whether you are a local looking to try something new or visiting and want to get a taste of the Flagstaffs Brewery scene, here are some breweries worth a visit on your downtown beer excursion:
Offering 20 taps, including Flagstaff staples like Piehole Porter or Salt River Lager, and rotating seasonals, Historic Brewing is the spot to create your perfect flight.
Sparked by travel and adventure, Wonderlust features Belgian and German-inspired beers along with twists on modern classics, like their Pan American Stout.
Named after Historic Route 66, “Mother Road” is a local hotspot known for its Tower Station IPA and finds every excuse to give back to the community from hosting local events to their partnership with Arizona Fish and Game.

Located in one of Arizona’s last standing buildings from the Lumber Era, Lumberyards inviting beer garden leads tasters straight to their famous Flagstaff IPA.
