WE ARE GILBERT'S FIRST BREWERY!

For years we've dreamed of bringing together our two loves: The beautiful and diverse state of Arizona together with hand crafted, artisanal ales. While backpacking the wondrous depths of Arizona we forged ideas that would one day become Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. Well, here we are! We will continue our endeavor into the remote beauties of both the Arizona Wilderness and Craft Beer.

Our belief is that beer is more than a beverage to guzzle on Sundays, just another beverage at the party, or cheap yellow fizzy stuff dad drank while wearing his dirty flannel shirts. Beer is culture and we have a true PASSION for this amazing beverage! Check out our food menu, as it was created to pair quite nicely with our fine ales. C’mon in and see what we are up to next!

Currently On Tap

Monastic Series 
  • Santa Teresa Enkel 5.2% - This crisp, elegant beer reflects its Belgian water profile with pilsner malt and a clean finish.
  • Baboquivari Belgian Blonde 6.9% - A soft sweetness from continental pilsner malt & a slight touch of honey malt. Styrian Golding and Tettnanger hops set a firm, herbal hop balance to 22lbs. of some of the finest local, spring honey you’ll ever taste. Don’t call this Blonde your honey. She is probably too sophisticated for you!  

American Pub Ales

  • Refuge IPA 7.2% - Our West Coast IPA brewed with Centennial, Simcoe, Cascade, and Columbus hops   
  • Estrella Pale Ale 5.9% - Balanced American Pale Ale dry hopped with Mosaic and Nugget. Flaked Oats add unique mouth-feel and body.
  • Oaked-n-Ordinary 3.4% - This beer features London ale yeast to give a more authentic quality to this beer. Medium toast oak spirals bring that nice barrel character to the beer in less time, while adding a light vanilla & spice, as well as a little tannin quality to help create a easy drinking beer with complex flavor.
  • Lil Guy Rye 3.9% - A delightful rye session beer, with the signature goose berry aroma from Nelson Sauvin hops. Easy drinking with great hop character and just enough hop bitterness. 
  • White Canyon Blonde Stout 6.8% - Although this beer is light in color, expect the same roasted and toasty flavors from a typical stout. Coffee and light caramel are prominent.
  • O-Line Triple IPA 11.2% - This triple IPA is loaded with hops yet masterfully balanced by the sweetness from the malts. With a high ABV yet a depth of characteristics, expect this beer to be easy on the palate.
  • Superstition Coffee Stout 6.6% - Local coffee (Superstition Coffee Co.) and roasted malts balance with Madagascar vanilla beans for the perfect balance between coffee and beer.
  • City Slickers IPA 6.8% - A collaboration beer with Other Half Brewing, this recipe includes Arizona prickly pear and citrus zest along with Citra, Galaxy and Equinox hops.
  • DC Mountain 8.2% - A West Coast style Double IPA, dry hopped with Citra and Galaxy.
Farmhouse Saisons
  • Hummingbird Springs Saison 4.2% - A traditional Farmhouse Saison recipe that was allowed to build acidity in the kettle, mimicking old world Saison.
  • Wet Beaver Wit 6.3% - A Farmhouse Saison with coriander and soft earthy tones. Citrus driven dry hops balance the rustic nature of the local beets from Steadfast Farm at Agritopia.
  • Table Top Saison 4.0% - This hoppy "table" Saison is refreshing and dry. Dry hops add complexity and citrus.
  • Desert Lavender Saison 6.5% - Farmhouse Saison finished with locally foraged lavender. 
Sour/Brettanomyces Ales
  • Bear Wallow Berliner Weisse - 3.2% The Wilderness take on a SOUR German wheat ale dating back to the 16th century. Local Sonoran Wheat (Hayden Flour Mills) and subtle dry hop flavors from Jarrylo and El Dorado compliment this beer.
  • Blood Orange Gose 4.4% - A SOUR/SALTY wheat ale with AZ blood oranges (Steadfast Farm), AZ salt & Sonoran White Wheat (Hayden Flour Mills).
  • Smoked Apple Gose 4.8% -  Historically close to the Lichtenhainer style, the flavor of this Gose accentuates lactobacillus tartness with smokiness from local apples, smoked at Little Miss BBQ, and local salt. A portion of the proceeds from this beer go directly to the Wildland Firefighters Foundation in honor of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots. 
Barrel Aged
  • BA Sweet Potato Saison 9% - Aged in tequila barrels for six months, this beer has a pleasantly intense blue agave aroma that follows through on the flavor as well. The sweet potato and dark brown sugar offer up a delicious sweetness to balance out the alcohol & add to the elegant mouth feel without overtaking the oak characteristics coming form the barrel.
