It was a hot August night in 2001 when the doors of the little brick building on East Camelback Road finally opened to the public. We served the beers of the separately owned Sonora Brewing Company. Our taps streamed with six of their regular beers, their cask conditioned ale, the Rootbeer and a myriad of seasonal ales. The Brewery already had a following as they had been in business since 1996. In the fall of 2004 the owners of Sonora Brewing Company sold their brewery and we were faced with some big decisions to either change our format or renovate our other building into a brewery. In the end we jumped in and began yet another long construction renovation. The seven barrel system that looms behind the floor to ceiling glass in our Brewer’s Den is the fruits of our labor and February 14, 2006 marked a new chapter in our history. You see, this was the day that the first three beers brewed on site flowed. We know we are biased, but in our minds the beer had never tasted as good as it did that day.face of the "Big German" Uwe Boer that we all know and love. He works magic in his craft and the passion that he shows for brewing fills the glasses as his award winning beer dispenses from our taps. We now boast our own regular taps but his innovation in our seasonal ales and distinct brewing style is what keeps our bar stools full and the place hopping. We can hardly keep his cask conditioned ale on tap as our customers are known to consume the kegs in record time.
