Sad Day In AZ Brewing History
 
Today we are scheduled to lose an AZ brewing landmark:

The Bandersnatch was the first micro-brewery in AZ. Tip a brew in memory.

Why's it going?
Development?

The City of Tempe siezed the property via eminent domain in order to erect a Marriott.

I hope the owners made a bunch of money.

That is truly some sad news. It was a great place, with decent food.

Well I am positive with the Arizona Cardinals over in Glendale now it took a huge hit. I'm taking a class at ASU for fun and spoke to the gate attendant in my parking area. He states "the amount of money we've lost with the move is amazing". I know the Cards brought in a good chunk of change for tempe business. I guess missing 10 games for the 2nd closest bar to the stadium (5 min walk) was too much.


This is just my interpretation by the way, nothing officially stated.


They had awesome brats on game day and New Castle just seemed to go so well with 'em. I'll miss going there for ASU games, it was a tradition for us.

I'm not buying it. Bandersnatch has been closed for a while now, before the Cardinals moved. I think the hit to Tempe business is WAY overblown. There are literaly 30,000 (Or was it 50,000?) people who work and got to school at ASU.

My favorite brewpub in the area is definitely Four Peaks, and that place has just been getting busier and busier with every passing year.

Still, Bandersnatch will be (and already has been for some time) sorely missed.
