For years, we’ve partnered with Tempe Sister Cities to bring a little bit of Germany to Arizona in the form of the Four Peaks Oktoberfest at Tempe Town Lake. But for this year’s celebration of all things Deutsch, we wanted to go further. Enter Weltenburger Kloster, the oldest monastery brewery in the world. Founded in ... Read More
Four Peaks Brewing Company is an American brewery from Tempe, Arizona.
Our brewers take great pride in brewing beers that are true to style. Of course, we love the innovation involved in developing something completely new but it is brewing beer to style that we find the most challenging. Making the perfect Pale Ale, IPA, or Scottish Ale is what drives us to be the best.
You could say we’re obsessed with quality. From annual trips to the Yakima river valley where we hand-select hops, to our own rigorous standards for the best malted barley, we search tirelessly for the highest quality ingredients. We’ve invested in the best equipment, the best processes, and the best people to create what we think is the finest beer possible.
We even go so far as to strip our municipal water supply to its most basic state and add back salts and minerals to create the perfect water for brewing each style of beer. Our proprietary yeast strain is just another step we take to make unique, flavorful ales and lagers.
Remember Holmberg Bound? You guys loved last year’s collaboration we brewed with John Holmberg and 98 KUPD so much, we had to team up again. But this time, we made something a little different: A summer beer called All Dogs Go to Hefen. As you may be able to tell from the name, the beer ... Read More

Years ago, Four Peaks co-founder Jim Scussel was sipping on a Kilt Lifter at the brewery (as he is wont to do) when he overheard something that thoroughly upset him. A group of teachers, gathered for beers after a particularly tough day of class, was discussing the lack of supplies—even essentials like pencils and paper—provided ... Read More
If you’ve visited Four Peaks 8th Street in the summer, you know that the pub has a tendency to get a little, shall we say, toasty. Though the historic building we call home was originally built as an ice factory, 1890s engineering still leaves something to be desired when it comes to temperature control. That’s ... Read More
If you visit our 8th Street pub in the next few days and hear the sounds of jackhammers and construction workers coming through the walls, don’t be alarmed. While our 100-year-old building is definitely haunted—remind us to tell you about it one day—these particular noises aren’t paranormal. We’re under construction. Today we began the overhaul ...

The folks you invited to your backyard barbecue deserve better than meat cooked on an old, busted-up grill or smoker. Let us help with that. This summer, we’re giving a few lucky Four Peaks fans a serious upgrade to their grill-out game with shiny new smokers from Green Mountain Grills. We’re calling it the Grills ... Read More
They call it the “Olympics of Beer”—and Golden Lager made it to the podium. On May 3 during a ceremony at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn., the Brewers Association announced the winners of the World Beer Cup, its prestigious biennial (that’s every two years) beer competition that regularly draws thousands of brewers eager ...

Ever wonder why February is shorter than all the other months? It’s because Arizona Beer Week is so awesome that the higher-ups had to take some days out of February to avoid all the other months getting jealous. True story. From February 8-18 (which is longer than a week, but we won’t tell if you won’t), ... Read More
The Veterans Reflection Garden in Mesa is exactly what it sounds like: a safe, social space for veterans to reflect and, if need be, heal. Sounds like a beneficial place, right? Just one problem: It doesn’t exist yet. We want your help to change that. A project of the Mesa Leadership Program Class of 2018, ... Read More

It’s no secret that John Holmberg, host of Holmberg’s Morning Sickness on 98 KUPD, loves dogs (he has eight of his own) and craft beer. So we though we’d help him combine those two passions. The result: Holmberg Bound, a red IPA brewed to benefit the Arizona Humane Society. In early November, Holmberg sat with ... Read More

We have just opened the long awaited retail/studio space on the east side of the existing Four Peaks 8th Street location and, pardon our bias, it looks great! The addition of just this relatively small space changes everything in the best way possible! It enhances both the look of the 1890’s era building and the flow ... Read More
