Our family Christmas this year is in Phoenix, AZ. My dad's work headquarters are located here, but no one else in my family has ever been. We figured this would be a perfect time to get the family together and explore a new city. We are staying at the Marriott Tempe at the Buttes, which is a resort with beautiful grounds and a great pool area (much needed in the desert). Though I will admit we called it "The Butts" (cue immature laughter) for most of the trip.
We found an awesome brewpub (I swear, my family's middle name is "brewpub") called Four Peaks. This place has a great variety of beers brewed on location and an awesome elevated bar food menu. I highly recommend the salmon B.L.T. It's nice and light but still packs a ton of flavor. More room for beer!
