Northern Arizona Holiday Brew News

It seems that these days the Arizona wine industry is getting a lot of attention. But the state, and especially Northern Arizona, has some world class breweries and the local craft brew scene is growing. Beer lovers rejoice! There is a new brewing company in Camp Verde, Verde Brewing Company, that recently released its first beers. The Williams-based brew staple, Grand Canyon Brewery, is a family owned and operated microbrewery that produces a dozen different specialty craft brews each year. This season they are spoiling their loyal customers with a new release! Verde Brewing Companyverdebrewcotaps Camp Verde’s first brewing company, The Verde Brewing Company, has successfully brewed their first hand crafted beer, The Honey Pot Stout. The Stout made its debut on Friday November 15th during the Verde Brewing Company’s first tapping party at their new tasting room, located inside White Hills Winery & Gallery. Kickstarter contributors and supporters came out to White Hills, located at 325 S. Main St, to try the new stout and celebrate the beginning of the region's newest brewery

Supporters got to see their name painted on the bricks that decorate the brewery walls, and ask brew master and VBC owner, Alex Goetting, questions about the brewing process and the future of the Verde Brewing Company.  After the private tour, contributors and the Honey Pot keg walked across the street to experience the first taste and tapping of the new stout. During the tapping party, hors d’oeuvres were supplied by The Horn, and White Hills Gallery also offered wine tasting, and bread, made from the brewing grains, for sale. Everyone also had a chance to check out the Mini Show exhibit, currently on display at White Hills.

Honey Pot Stout is now available on tap at The Horn, located at 348 S. Main St. in downtown Camp Verde. This holiday season is the perfect opportunity to try a glass or pitcher. Soon growlers and glasses will be available at the tasting room inside of White Hills, located in the historic Boler’s building in on Main Street in Camp Verde. Find more on Facebook at or check out their website at

About Grand Canyon's Flavor Bomb

For the past two years, the Grand Canyon Brewing Company has quietly been working on an invention that will revolutionize the craft beer industry; they call it the Flavor Bomb—a patent pending, beer conditioning flavor widget—the longer it’s left in a bottle of beer, the better the flavor. The Grand Canyon Brewing Company’s patent-pending Flavor Bomb design packs a punch of flavor and craft beer lovers got their first opportunity to taste the impact this winter when GCB launched their Bomber Bottle series ( The Flavor Bomb is available now at local homebrewing stores throughout Arizona as well as online.
