I'm so happy to share all about another one of our favorite local spots: THAT Brewery in Pine! If you've stopped into town, you've probably either eaten here or seen their large painting of a dog in a pickup truck as you've passed by! Filled with good times, lots of beer, and guaranteed furry friends out on the patio, THAT Brewery is always a great time! Here's why we love them:
#1: They have such a casual and fun atmosphere! Carson and I love the beer flights and the girls love the games! They have a whole sand volleyball court right off their patio as well as some of the more classic games like Jenga, horseshoes, and Connect 4. THAT Brewery is super dog-friendly, so it's the perfect spot to bring your pup along. They have dog bowls on deck next to a water cooler and tons of dog treats, so your little one will feel right at home on the patio. Live music is also a regular occurrence here and is a great place to hear some talented locals!
#2: They have an incredible menu. We love all of it, but specifically the smokehouse meat! My all-time favorite is the BBQ Pulled Chicken Salad. Carson loves the smoked brisket and the girls are partial to the baked mac and cheese. If you can't decide, just get a smokehouse platter and I know you won't be disappointed! They also have your classics like burgers, sandwiches, and more! (and lots and lots of BEER!)
#3: We love the owners and are so fortunate to have them as friends! Tamara, owner of THAT Brewery, was one of the first fellow business owners in town that we connected with. She's been so supportive of the Inn and we have had the pleasure of becoming friends over the years as we've collaborated on various projects together! She's the best. Make sure to say hello to her while stopping in!
#4: They are involved with the community! I'm sure you've heard us talk about the Arizona Trail that crosses right through Pine. We've hosted quite a few through-hikers over the years at the Inn. THAT Brewery is situated just a few hundred feet away from the trail, so as you'd expect, they've also hosted their fair share of hikers looking for some comfort food that isn't cooked over a campfire - haha! They even brew up their very own AZ Trail Ale, a dedication to this special part of the community! This is their flagship brew and a portion of all sales proceeds are donated directly to the Arizona Trail Association! So drink up and support the worthy cause!
#5: Paint & Pint Nights! Talk about fun! We love these monthly painting classes they offer that attracts both locals and visitors alike. You get to sip on a craft beer while you paint under the direction of a professional teacher. Make sure it's on your list for your next visit to town. Check their events page for specific dates and details!
So, THAT's it! If you haven't been to THAT Brewery yet, you'll definitely want to stop in and check it out.
