Sleepy Dog Brewery is just one of the many microbreweries that have sprung up in and around Phoenix, Arizona. Established in 2009, Sleepy Dog Brewery has been brewing up some of the tastiest beer in the valley thanks to their meticulous attention to detail and dedication to high quality ingredients.

Nestled in the heart of Tempe, Sleepy Dog is enjoyed by students and faculty at Arizona State University.

Right now, Sleepy Dog is distributing to different bars and convenience stores throughout Arizona and will soon be moving into Southern California.

The brewery features a wide variety of different beer, which they have showcased at multiple beer festivals in and around the valley. My favorite brew is definitely the Red Rover Irish Ale, which is quite delicious and the only palatable red ale in the city.

Some other stand outs are the Wet Snout Milk Stout and the Yellow #1 Light American Lager which I can only describe as the best “patio” beer for the ensuing spring season.

Sleepy Dog is currently running a Groupon promotion which gives consumers a beer tasting for two and a 64-ounce growler for just $32 which is a steal considering that has a value of $50 altogether.
