Arcadia Premium is a locally lauded bottle shop that has been providing the Valley with craft beer, boutique wines, cheese, charcuterie, snacks and sweets since 2015. As it celebrates nearly a decade in Phoenix, owner Lara Mulchay teases a few big changes, including its transition into Arcadia Alchemy: Craft Beer & Wine Bar.

“We continue to exist solely because of the strong support of our community. We owe so much of our success to the talents of our local craft breweries, wineries, cider and mead makers”  Mulchay says. “We are honored to provide an outlet to highlight these incredibly talented artisans. Likewise, the support of our friends, neighbors, and local customers has been overwhelming and inspiring.” 

For eight years, Arcadia Premium has given back to local schools, charities and organizations through annual fundraisers and drives. 

This year, Mulchay obtained a license that allows her to serve beer and wine by the glass while continuing retail sales. The front of the store features locally produced items such as chocolate, cocktail mixers and hot sauce as well as pre-made gift baskets that cater to a variety of tastes and budgets.

Starting in January, Arcadia Premium will be closed for three months while undergoing a significant remodel. Arcadia Alchemy will be open for business in March 2024.  The store will be converted into a “concept space” introducing new vendors and products for the remainder of 2023. During the remodel, Arcadia Premium will be available for private events around the Valley.

Arcadia Premium will be hosting a slew of pop-up events with various local vendors, artists, chefs and other food and beverage producers. They have weekly beer and wine tastings as well as a series called “Sunday Suppers” – community gatherings on Sunday evenings.
