Some of the best tasting beer I've ever had. I can't comment on their consistency, but after 3 visits in Sept. I've decided that their Hefe is one of maybe the 2 or 3 best wheat beers I've ever had in my life. 5 beers on tap, including the fantastically hoppy/malty pale ale, the nutty brown ale, and the classic amber ale.
For me, not too much on atmosphere. The room is a functioning brewery that looks as if it added a bar as an afterthought. Not a problem, but it's more sterile (as well as it should be) than anything else. Outdoor seating, which is nice, but I can't understand why they put a roof on it? Maybe to protect against the 2 inches of rain a year? It's a place where all the locals hang out and offers bands from around the country several nights a week.
Food from the very German influenced menu is excellent, my wife made me eat there several times so she could have the brats, kraut and authentic german potato salad-all for about $6.00.
Prices for the brews were great, if I remember correctly, averaging $3.50.
The tap brews were tastier than the bottled ones we bought at the local supermarket. Overall, a place I would love to have as a hometown brewery.

Nicely tucked away from all of the tourist hub-bub of Sedona, unless you like T-shirt shops and stores that sell cacti made out of glass.
The bar area is small since the majority of the large room is taken by the brewing equipment (three 9300 gallon fermentation vessels and other stuff I did not identify). It's a nice wooden bar with the bartender eager to pour (and not too shabby to look at either). My lady and I sit down and order two Hefe's, mostly since I have yet to see this beer in the bottle at any local stores in Phoenix. A nice selection of beers (5) going from a nut brown ale to a blonde. The beers are good overall but I was impressed mostly by the Hefe.
There is a large patio area attached that allows for the scenery to be taken in. Just don't get taken away by the magical vortexes of Sedona.
The food was limited to a panini sandwiches, pretzels, chips and salsa, and some other stuff. It was good grub though, very tasty ham panini. I am glad I stopped by.

Ahhhh, Sedona. Boy, do I ever not fit in there. Lots of artists and craftsman and new agey people running about in colorful outfits and pink (you read right) Jeeps.
Sure would be a great place for an unexpected find like a German-American biergarten with all the trimmings.
Lo and behold, if you search this place out, there is beer and brat served right by a smiling German woman and a sunny fenced-in outdoor serving area with fountain and flowers. Real German style potato salad. Dynamite 6% ABV Brown ale. Skylights in the bar room, so that daytime is a flood of sunshine. Extremely collectable old Fillmore posters advertising great 60's and 70's rock acts. Very drinkable unfiltered amber. Bavarian style hefe whose banana and clove essences my sausage lunch overpowered, but well, one would expect that.
One of my favorite beer experiences in AZ.
