Sleepy Dog Brewery is a production brewery with a tasting room located in a small commercial complex on University Drive in Tempe, Arizona. Sleepy Dog Brewery does not serve food, but does partner with local food trucks to serve their tasting room customers.

Sleepy Dog Brewery – Bottom Line

Sleepy Dog Brewery is an interesting place, as it seems that the tasting room was the primary goal when they opened the doors, and the beer was an after thought, as they have a fairly large brewery setup, but they do not seem to distribute much beyond the tasting room. The beer is not bad and the tasting room really wants to be a full bar, as it is open hours similar to a bar and often posts about events, happy hours, etc. trying to attract the locals to come in. Our favorite beer from Sleepy Dog Brewery is the Dog Pound Pale Ale, which is 5% ABV and is a light American style pale ale.
