#3: Sonoran Brew Co. Saison
Its bright yellow color and pungent nose belie the long and smooth (and dry!) finish of this Belgian farmhouse-style ale. 6.3% ABV.

#4: Goldwater Brewing Co. Scotch’dale
Scottish-style ales sometimes fall flat, but this full-bodied, malty, red beer satisfies. 5.5% ABV.

#5: Lumberyard Brewing Co. Diamond Down Lager
Flagstaff-based Lumberyard Brewing makes this very mellow, German-style pale lager year-round, but its floral noble hops, sweet grains and corn aroma make it taste even better at harvest time. 5% ABV.
