  • Historic Barrel + Bottle House

    Historic Brewing Company got its start in Flagstaff in 2013. Since its inception, it has opened tasting rooms in Flagstaff and Williams, AZ. Historic has a knack for incorporating some less traditional ingredients into their beers including but not limited to their Piehole Porter (a cherry vanilla porter) or their Undercover Cucumber (a blonde ale infused with cucumber). We recommend starting at their Barrel + Bottle house located in downtown Flagstaff where you can try some of their exceptional brews, craft cocktails, and delicious pub fare. If you have time stop by the original brewery located in East Flagstaff.

    Wanderlust is a small microbrewery located in the high country of Arizona, in a small business park off the beaten path. Our beers reflect our tastes and the sense of adventure that comes along with a lifetime of travel and exploration. We have a particular soft spot for Saisons and Farmhouse-style ales and the sense of place that they evoke, but we also dabble in everything from German Hefeweizens to Belgian-inspired sours; British-inspired dark ales and obscure styles like Finnish Sahtis and German Gose. We also put our own twist on new-school American styles and have even been known to dabble in the hoppy beers now and again. We preach the gospel of science behind our beers for unmatched consistency and quality at our scale, but also embrace the artistry and chaos involved with running an extensive barrel aging and sour beer program and fermenting one of our flagship ales with a local wild yeast strain.
