The Beer Research Institute

Venue Info

Beer Research Institute (BRI) is a badass brewery in Mesa's East Valley: beer flights are served in brass knuckles, and the brews, mostly Belgian and West Coast-style ales, have names like Morning Sex (a sweet stout made with cold brew from Peixoto Coffee), War Paint, and Street Cred. The tap list is ever-changing and the kitchen is always creating new bites, like the scratch-made hatch green chile burger and the machaca tacos. BRI also pours craft brews from the local brewing community, including Northern Arizona’s Grand Canyon Brewing Company and Phoenix’s Sun Up.
