Every time of year is good for a beer! That’s especially true in Arizona, a state that’s rather proud of its brewing traditions. In the Valley alone, many local breweries vie for your attention. Luckily for you, we can make it simple: if you’re hanging around in the East Valley and want a tall, cold one, you can look below for the best breweries to visit near you in Chandler!
The Perch Brewery
232 S Wall St, Chandler, AZ 85225
Home to a collection of over 50 tropical rescue birds, this is a place where you feel good about serving yourself a cold one, since your money goes to a brewery that calls itself the second-chance “forever home” for these abandoned pet birds. Giving a lot of love to the birds while giving yourself a place to kick back and enjoy local brews sounds like a great combination to us!
SanTan Brewing — Downtown Chandler
8 S San Marcos Pl, Chandler, AZ 85225
SanTan Brewing is a well-known name around the Valley, and with multiple locations to choose from to enjoy their various pale ales and lagers, you might get overwhelmed. We’ll direct you to downtown Chandler in that case, where their pub and brewery includes a diverse tap as well as bar fare like fries, wings, nachos, and soft pretzels — or even heartier meals like pizza, sandwiches, and tacos galore. If you’re a drink-while-you-eat kind of beer lover, this hot spot for craft beer is definitely for you.
HELLUVA Brewing Company
3950 W Ray Rd # 5, Chandler, AZ 85226
Multiple raves about their wings may make you momentarily forget about their beer selection but trust us: no one can be inside of HELLUVA Brewing for long without trying their Black Sheep stout, slightly bold and sweet with hints of chocolate. In addition, the menu at this brewery in Chandler, AZ features seasonal brews like Mele Kalikimaka, a coconut cinnamon porter that’s available November through January. Whatever you choose from HELLUVA’s robust selection, it’s going to guarantee you a “helluva” good time.
HOP Central Brewing Co and Taproom
5055 W Ray Rd # 2, Chandler, AZ 85226
They may have a short selection of their own brews, but each house brew at HOP Central Brewery & Taproom is worth having, be it their house IPA or their “Smooth Creminal” cream ale. But the magic of HOP Central is that they highlight a ton of other local craft beers in their taproom, including Wren House’s Doppelbock or Huss Brewing’s Hefeweizen. So, whether you’re looking for house flavors or craft beer from Phoenix, Tempe, and other places in the Valley, HOP Central is a great place for you to get it!
Pedal Haus Brewery
95 W Boston St, Chandler, AZ 85225
It’s more than a hot spot for amazing burgers (available vegan or with the real deal). Pedal Haus Brewery is also home to great local brews. This brewery in Chandler, AZ offers a large selection of options such as the Sourgarten Blueberry, their White Rabbit Hazy IPA, their Mexican Amber Lager, and even an American classic, the Amber Ale. Pedal Haus’s Chandler menu also features classic pub fare and meals with international flair like Baja Shrimp Ceviche, their beer brats, or the Thai Peanut Salad.
