At various points, a brewery has to lay it's cards out on the table. There are public records for zoning, incorporation and state liquor licenses among other things. Often it's as subtle as a giant orange sign posted on the street.
I've decided to blind item some news on some potential breweries:
Existing AZ brewery looking to move production to the valley.
2 production breweries looking at the same properties.
Mesa brewery(s). It's a consideration.
I mention this to counterbalance the recent closure of Rock Bottom Ahwatukee and Spitfire Grill. Things are happening here, they sometimes have to wait.
