Flagstaff – This small, mountain college town is the gateway to the Grand Canyon. Its charming downtown area is filled with rustic restaurants, shops and a whole lot of breweries considering the town’s size. We couldn’t choose just one so here is a plethora.
Springfield – Lost Signal Brewing is in an old radio station along Route 66 in downtown Springfield. Since the owners have taken care to preserve as much of the original building as possible, the radio tower still looms large over the brewery and its bright lights at night act as a beacon for the thirsty. There is a large patio where kids and pets can run free. Mothers Brewing Company is also in downtown Springfield and offers free tours of their brewery every Saturday. There is live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Although they do not sell food at the brewery, food trucks frequently park nearby, so you do not have to go hungry while sampling one of their 21 beers on tap. While in the area, you can also check out Springfield Brewing Company, which has been making craft beer in Springfield since 1997.
