Taste of Tops
Tempe, AZ 85281
Phoenix New Times's Description
Sitting pretty next to its big sis operation Tops Liquors, the pint-sized Taste of Tops is a cushy, lounge-like addition to the famed alcohol emporium located at University Drive and Farmer Avenue. And much like at the original Tops, it's all about the alcohol. The small, inviting bar features a dozen different draft taps of specialty beers, wine by the glass (or by the bottle if purchased at the store, with a small additional corking fee), and a row of refrigerators stocked with row after row of delicious-looking microbrew and craft beers. Local artists switch out their work on the walls each month, which always keeps the look of the place fresh. Comfy couches, low booths and rich wooden chairs create a mellow vibe for hours of laidback drinking and unrushed hanging. When a no-fuss night out is in order, Taste of Tops is the answer.
Tips from foursquare
2010 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Bottled Beer Selection! Taste of Tops offers an insane amount of bottled beer -more than 500 selections! Plus, beer and wine tastings throughout the month.
24 beers on tap, most everything is rotating so dont expect to come in a week later and find the same thing on tap. The staff always has good suggestions so don't be shy.
Almost any beer on tap is amazing. Ballast Point Victory at Sea Vanilla Porter is rediculous!! Best craft beer lineup in Phoenix.
Come back often- the taps change regularly and they're always good.
Mmmm 4 flights of beers for $8... get outta your mind
