Last week was a big week for light rail riders. ASU students are settling back into their new routine and Angels Trumpet Ale House opened for business. Of course, ASU brings thousands of light rail riders back to the system, but it’s places like Angels that provides more options for another HUGE demographic of light rail riders, the recreational rider.
Angels will be a huge hit for the First Friday crowds, for baseball and basketball fans, and for the ever popular BEER lover.
I had a chance to meet and talk to Mat Englehorn while visiting Angels last week and found him to be a very easy going guy with an obvious love for his craft ( beer ). Mat and his wife Sherry haven’t taken this project lightly. They have actually traveled far and wide researching Ale House’s, and they have been active in the local beer scene here in the Valley for some time.
Glad to see ASU students back on the trains, and I’m glad to see another cool option for food and drink along the line. It was a good week, for sure.

Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics or videos of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event, etc.
