The Phoenix Ale Brewery was founded in 2011 by Greg Fretz and George Hancock. Both were well-known brewers in the Pacific Northwest. The first beer the dynamic duo crafted was the famous Camelback IPA. Unfortunately, Fretz and Hancock both passed away, but the brewery continues to brew tasty flavors in their honor.
The brewery and taproom is easily accessible by the Metro Light Rail, the 202, and bike paths. No matter what your means of transportation are, a pit stop at The Phoenix Ale Brewery is always a good idea.
In the taproom you can find 10 different beers. They can even can a six-pack for you straight from the tap if you’d like! The Phoenix Ale Brewery is one of few breweries in the valley that offer deal packages on sites like Groupon and LivingSocial. Regardless, the brewery is known for being reasonably priced.
