Craft 64 Debuts another Fantastic New Beer

If there’s one thing that guests of Craft 64 can count in, it’s fun and creative craft beers. This week, will be the debut of Frolic! Frolic is the latest craft beer to spring forth from the creative brewership at Craft 64.

Owner and brewmaster at Craft 64, James Swann explains the latest creation. “It’s a medium bodied pale ale with lots of hops and lots of hop character. It has a low alcohol content – about 4.8 percent alcohol by volume and about 60 IBUs. “All of our beers are done in partnership with SunUp Brewing Company.”

Swann continues, “There’s one more beer to speak of… the winter beer, which is going to be called Wicked Winter Tail. It’s not a clone by any means, but it’s a play on the old Pete’s Wicked Winter Ale that no longer exists. It’s a hoppy brown ale with raspberry and nutmeg. It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be about 25 IBUs and about 6.5 percent alcohol by volume as a true winter beer should be.” The homage to the old Pete’s Wicked Winter Ale is best enjoyed with one of Craft 64’s hand-crafted pizzas made from fresh, local ingredients.

One of the newer pizzas is the “Love You Long Time” made with cherry wood smoked port, roasted red peppers, daikon, red onions and a spicy coconut aji sauce. If simple is more your speed, enjoy a tasty brick oven-fired cheese pizza or try the ever-popular blanco pizza with mozzarella, burrata, spinach and garlic. In every instance ingredients are fresh and local. It’s no wonder that Zagat rated Craft 64 as the No. 3 hottest rated restaurant in Scottsdale!

Now that the weather is cooling down, don’t miss the chance to take advantage of the patio seating at Craft 64. In addition to 30 Arizona craft beers on tap, you’ll also find a wonderful assortment of craft cocktails, appetizers, salads, sandwiches and dessert.

Now is the time to make your reservations for your upcoming holiday party. Dine inside or enjoy the outdoor weather, Craft 64 can accommodate your group of up to 30 people. Your party will enjoy Craft 64 and you will be treated like part of the family.

Whether you go for the food and stay for the beer or vice versa, you’ll be glad that you visited Craft 64. Cleverly named for the fact that there are 64 ounces in a growler of beer (and yes, they do fill growlers), Craft 64 effectively merges at the intersection of gastropub, wine bar and artisan pizzeria. You will also enjoy the camaraderie and atmosphere that lives in Craft 64 as it is located in the second oldest home in Scottsdale. Come and find out what all the buzz is about at Craft 64!
