I am headed to Glendale, AZ in late June.  Any must-visit breweries in the Phoenix area?

No, but you should be able to golf for cheap. Of course it will be 108º out...

Seriously.  We were in Phoenix in August 2012 - it was 114 in the day, and only cooled to around 95 at night.  Uninhabitable.

I was there almost exactly a year ago for my mom's funeral.  The coolest day was 120.

I used to also like Four Peaks in Tempe, but I don't get out that way much these days.

I'd have to say my favorites are Four Peaks (can't believe I forgot to list that one!) and Sunup. North Mountain has good beers but the music sucks. San Tan is good too.

If you're interested in a taproom, Papago is great, with a nice bottle selection as well.

Yeah, I liked that place when I would have work trips to the valley.

I love these trips.  My wife works as a consultant / trainer during the day, while I go check out breweries.  Motel, car, and the food is paid for.  I just have to pay for my flight - which half the time it's on frequent flier miles.

Four days in in the Phoenix area, then 3 days in the Denver area.

Man, that works out nicely !  Think my wife needs a career change.
