Discovered picturesque red-rocked canyon refuge (backdrop for many Western movies) on way back from surreal three-night Grand Canyon retreat, January ‘05. At scenic Sedona’s Tlaquepaque Village, hit upscale OAK CREEK BREWERY & GRILL, located at second floor of adobe clay mini-mall.
Prominent copper kettle brew tanks built into bar area are viewable from windows backing patrons in comfy couch-lined dining booths. Outdoor seating available. Fine cuisine included rotisserie chicken, barbecue ribs, and fire-kissed pizza. Splendid red-peppered pesto-onion-lined Smoking Gun Pizza is recommended.
Slight noble-hopped American pilsner Micro Light and diacetyl dry-grained citrus-laced Forty-Niner Gold Lager suit amateurs, but perky banana-splurged lemon-cloved Horseshoe Hefeweizen, praline-sugared almond-daubed chocolate-spiced Village Nut Brown Ale, dark chocolate-y walnut-buttered Pullman Porter, and sensational floral-spiced red-fruited lemon-soured Doc’s Pale Ale will please heartier thirsts.
Bottled versions of Oak Creek Amber, Nut Brown, and Pale Ale listed in Beer Index.
