    I live in Phoenix and while I wouldn’t go as far as to say that this beer is “lousy”, it’s far from great or one of the “Top 50 Beers in America”… I probably have close to that many American currently in my fridge that I’d rate higher and like Dan said, not a rare beer. It’s available year round at pretty much every store that sells beer in Arizona.

    As for best Arizona beers, I’d go with Four Peaks Hop Knot and it’s uncommon, double, seasonal variety, Double Knot. Their Papago Brewing in Scottsdale also makes some damn fine beers, but aside from one of them, they’re only available on tap. El Robusto and Elsie’s stand out a little to me, but they have some great seasonals and one-time beers as well.

    I spend four months in Arizona in the winter and I would definitely rate this beer as the best readily available beer brewed in Arizona. I wish I could get it here in Minnesota.

    1. Who rated it one of America’s Top 50 beers?

    2. The beer is not rare.

    3. The bottle I had was watery.

    Interesting that you made fun of this particular beer as it was just rated one of America’s Top 50 Beers in America and the best beer made in Arizona by a panel of real beer experts that know beers (quite apparently as you do not by your rating of this beer)from the June 2011 edition of Food and Wine magazine. Do you understand beer styles at all? This is an excellent example of an English Strong Style Beer and is suppose to have a medium body and lightly hopped. Far from watery or bitter hops. Learn something about rare beers before you comment on true quality beers.
