Quality, Community & Exploration
Located in the Green Gables neighborhood of Phoenix, the property we now call home at Wren House sat unoccupied and disused for decades. We fell in love with its character, rebuilt the old guest house and garage in the backyard into our brewhouse, and converted the main 1920s bungalow house into our cozy taproom.
In the brewhouse, we focus on quality and explore a wide range of brewing techniques and styles. Led by head brewer Preston Thoeny, our brewers integrate international beer styles with Arizona character to craft beers that satiate and challenge the senses.
We believe in the power of craft beer to bring people together, and our taproom reflects this - we offer a simple space with music but no TV to gather with friends or meet a new neighbor over a beer. While we focus on the beer we encourage you to bring in take-out or have food delivered if you would like to pair a meal with our offerings.
CURRENTLY ON TAP
a double dry hopped hazy version of our classic ginger pale ale. We implemented a much softer ginger profile by conditioning the beer on fresh pressed ginger juice and lactose. Hopped with Citra, Mt Hood, Columbus, and Mandarina Bavaria. gingery, citrusy, and slightly sweet.
This beer is immediately one of our favorites. Floor malted German Pilsner malt and German Wheat hopped delicately with Mandarina Bavaria. The nose is full of fresh baked sourdough bread with a lingering lemon curd. The taste greets you with dried apricots, lemon peel, clove and white pepper.
4.6% ABV | 22 IBU
Pecan Pie Thief is our dark Pecan Pie Wheatwine creation with the brisket/pie wizards over at Little Miss BBQ. We gathered 75 pounds of Arizona-grown pecans and had Little Miss give them a light/quick smoke over pecan wood before adding them at various stages in the brewing process. The beer was then further aged on a hefty amount of vanilla beans just prior to packaging. We are getting incredibly complex caramel & rich nutty aromas, flavor is thick pecan pie filling backed up by some sweet graham cracker crust. Brewed with Lactose.
Quite literally our biggest IPA yet, Good Boy Wally (GBW) is a hazy and juicy, 10% triple IPA brewed with Galaxy, Manadarina Bavaria, Columbus and Citra hops. We added almost 8lb/bbl of these most premium hops to create an incredibly tropical, dank yet balanced Triple IPA
Dankworth is our vision of the "juicy" style of Double IPA, sort of an East meets West iteration. Hazy but not too hazy, juicy but not OJ, bitterness is slightly perceptible but not over the top (or non-existent). For this version of Dankworth we added a special New Zealand hop bursting with flavors of fresh lime and tropical fruit. Brewed with Pilsner and Pale malts, flaked red wheat and flaked oats. Dry hopped with an enormous amount of Wakatu and topped off with some Galaxy and Citra
Zeta Reticuli is our first mixed culture Farmhouse Ale. This is our interpretation of what a hoppy American Farmhouse Ale should be, pairing one of our favorite Arizona grown grapes (Grenache) with our favorite hop (Galaxy) and letting Brett do its thing.
A pure imperial porter with no adjuncts. Subtle notes of currant and chocolate on the nose with a big coffee and chocolate body.
Brewed with naturally dried Ethiopian coffee beans locally roasted by Press Coffee and blended with Press Coffee cold brew. Oatmeal, malt, and coffee blend together in this smooth and rich stout.
6.9% ABV | 25 IBU
Bursting with 2 pounds per barrel of American Hops, Wrenovation is loaded with notes of citrus and refined spice. While we continuously experiment with new rotating IPA recipes, this is our steadfast, "unfiltered" version of a West Coast style IPA.
7.5% ABV | 80 IBU
Last Friday, the line of beer drinkers awaiting the noon release of the brew collaboration between Wren House Brewing Company and Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix stretched around the block. We previewed the beer a few months ago. It's the latest entry in Wren House's pie-themed "Pie Thief" series.
Wren House is a proud participant of the Arizona Pure Water Brew Challenge created by Pima County's Southwest Water Campus. This innovative project helps us all become more comfortable with the amazing technologies that enable recycled water reuse in drinking water applications and ensure a sustainable water supply for the arid southwest. We brewed "Hydrologic Pale Ale" as tribute to this cause and entered into the competition. Come try it while it lasts in the taproom!
Wren House is proud to be a member of Audubon Arizona's Western Rivers Action Network. Growing our craft in the desert southwest relies on long term sustainable management of our rivers, and WRAN is committed to making this happen.
