The latest episode of our Arizona Craft Beer Reviews takes Matt and Johann to the PHX Beer Co. taproom to chat with production manager Popeye (real name Jason Marhle).

We sample the new Oktoberfest, now on the menu at the taproom, Scottsdale restaurant and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport locations and discuss what beers pair well with food.

Popeye gives us his origin story, from home brewing to Goose Island to Four Peaks and now finding a home at PHX Beer Co.

Watch our video for the full compliment of beer tasting and our thoughts.

Sample the new brews from PHX Beer Co. at the upcoming Arizona Craft Beer Awards & Festival on Saturday, October 22 in Glendale.
