There is no vacation destination better for relaxing than Flagstaff. Our Northern Arizona home is like no other as it sits thousands of feet in elevation above the rest of Arizona providing incredible views and gorgeous weather. One of the best ways to enjoy your time in Flagstaff is by visiting one of the many watering holes. Flagstaff is home to Northern Arizona University so you can expect several bars that are frequented by the college crowd. The city is also home to many different craft breweries that have perfected the brewing process for tasty beers. Take a look at some of the best bars and breweries in Flagstaff:
Mother Road Brewing Company
Flagstaff is home to many historic breweries that have been around for decades now. One such location is the local favorite Mother Road Brewing Company which is located in downtown Flagstaff. The brewery is specifically known for its Tower Station IPA which has become one of the best-selling and most awarded IPAs in the state. Also, make sure to try out other favorites such as their Daily Driver Juicy Pale Ale or Limited Visibility Hazy IPA. They also produce seasonal beers and one-off specials so make sure to try a tasting flight whenever visiting. The food selection is great too with tasty options such as fish tacos and beef sliders from their onsite food truck. Yum!
Dark Sky Brewing
Flagstaff has been home to Dark Sky Brewing for a few years now and has instantly become a local favorite. While the brewery might be younger than the others in town it sure has become a hit with its inventive beer offerings. Dark Sky Brewing started off brewing many one-off beers that would instantly sell out now. Now guests can find many of their popular brews on tap and in larger quantities. Enjoy a beer inside their tasting room that shares space with Pizzicleta, one of Flagstaff’s best brick oven pizzeria. The outdoor beer garden offers plenty of shaded spots perfect for a beer in the summer weather. Make sure to grab some beers to go to take back to your vacation rental!
