Dave’s Electric Brewpub is finally here and yes, it is cool! The food is good, the beer is cold and the location is about as good as it gets for light rail riders and Sun Devil fans.
Update! Dave’s Electric has been replaced by The Mad Hatter! Check them out, too!
While there was a slight delay in their opening, we can now enjoy some more good, local beer. I have followed the construction and the story of this brewery for the past couple of months and was glad to see them open for business at the corner of 5th and College. In a future post, I’ll try to go into more detail about their story, food and BEER.
For now, I want to tell people about tomorrow’s chicken wing toast at Dave’s Electric Brewpub by some of our elected officials. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that this is a “politically correct” toast. But as a NON politician, I just might offer my services and raise a glass of Dave’s Electric Brew while they try out the wings. You know, it’s the “someone’s got to do it” mentality of a blogger just tryin’ to help a brother out. =-) Hope you can come join me!
Here is the press release from my friends at the City of Tempe:
Tempe City Council to raise chicken wings tomorrow, 4 p.m, to toast opening of Dave’s Electric Brewpub Tempe.
Dave’s Electric Brewpub just opened, and tomorrow at 4 p.m., Mayor Hugh Hallman and the Tempe City Council will toast to its prosperity and success — with chicken wings.
Dave’s will be known for its homebrew, which it plans to brew special varieties of on site, but it also boasts great food, including several varieties of chicken wings ranging from teriyaki for the timid to melt your tongue out of your mouth for the bold.
The family-owned pub is located on the southwest corner of Fifth Street and College. www.daveselectricbrewpub.com
Join us for the toast and to celebrate another new business in downtown Tempe. It’ll be a clucking good time.
**Update: Here is a video I shot from Dave’s Electric Brewpub yesterday while Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman toasted their wings. The wings are great and yes, the beer is too. **
Find Dave’s Electric Brewpub at 502 S College Ave near Sun Devil Stadium and just south of the light rail station at Veterans Way and College.
