Flagstaff is a craft beer town. It’s not just the preponderance of breweries within walking distance of downtown, or the fact that a Flag brewery scored multiple World Beer Cup medals. The popular Northern Arizona vacation spot has the kind of laid-back, hipster meets hippie vibe that attracts craft beer lovers (and makers).
Look for multiple beer festivals throughout the year, including Made in the Shade Beer Festival and Blues & Brews, plus Arizona Beer Week celebrations. Luckily, you don’t have to wait to sample a dozen craft beers at once. Our walking beer tour directs you to the best local brews in the downtown corridor, all located within a half-mile radius of the railway station. Drink up!
If you’re in town for Made in the Shade, AZ Beer Week, or just a summer vacay in a “hopping” town, hotels can be a bit pricey. Steer clear of downtown after a beery good night and Uber back to nearby Mormon Lake Lodge for peace and quiet to sleep it off. Located just 30 miles from our last stop, the lodge offers private cabins and an onsite steakhouse and saloon.
