as they opened their doors to the public for the very first time! After what seemed like years (just to me, I can't imagine how long it must have felt for Jonathan, and his crew!) I was able to walk into their pub, and order up a pint of beer, brewed right here in my adopted hometown of Gilbert Arizona! It was a sort of "soft" opening, with 3 of their beers on tap. Their Little Guy Rye, which I had, and was refreshing, very enjoyable, and very drinkable. My wife had their Sedona Secret Red, and I got a taster of their Estralla Pale Ale, a smooth, insanely drinkable session pale, that goes down smooth and easy, even after several, I can imagine.

Its been a long time coming for these guys. They dealt with set backs, and road blocks all along the way, but thanks to their passion and persistence (and maybe even some stubbornness) they plowed forward, and managed to finally get their doors opened last night.
If you are in the area of Arizona Ave and Guadalupe (yes, that is Gilbert!) check them out on the SE
Corner (behind the bagel shop). You would be hard pressed to find a nicer bunch of guys pouring beer in the valley. They brew up some great beers, and have an awesome, comfortable place to sit and enjoy them. So, please, stop by, introduce yourself, I guarantee you, you will want to come back, again and again.
So please, join me, in giving Jonathon, Brett, Patrick
and the rest of the bunch at Arizona Wilderness a heart felt congratulations on all their hard word, and on their dream coming to fruition. Its well worth the stop, trust me!
Congrats guys, you've certainly earned it!
Until next time
