I recently had their Pale 31 and Union Jack and was blown away at the quality of these beers.

Here's a few I brought back from Colorado a few weeks ago. The bottles I shipped but the cans I threw straight into the checked baggage.

Take some of these snowbirds with you....

that being said, Four Peaks Brewing, Gordon Biersh are worth checking out for beer...

If you have a couple days, check out Jerome...cool biker hangout and a pretty great place to drink and be casual in a pretty eclectic area.

Or if you are into horror movie skits, check out Ajo, Globe, Surprise...

Cave Creak will be lively when you are here, check out Horny Toad restaraunt...they serve New Belgium, and last i heard monday nights were all you can eat beef ribs....AWESOME!!!!
Check out Hidden Valley Wolfdog Sanctuary on facebook.


Working to save unwanted Wolfdogs from euthenasia, and educating the public about the joys and trials of Wolfdog and other exotic canid companionship.
