If it's beer you're looking for, Four Peaks Brewery is a nice spot for microbrews. Consistently voted the best brewpub in the Phoenix area. Four Peaks has two locations, Tempe and Scottsdale. They have a good happy hour menu and the food is good.
Nothing better than sitting back on a hot summer night with a cold one. My favorite beer is the Hefeweisen and the Kiltlifter. The beer bread sandwiches are excellent and portions are big. Parking is a bit of a challenge but worth it!
