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.
From 303 Magazine: “For those of you attending GABF 2018 and in need of a haze fix we have got you covered. Here are our top five brewery booths you should visit to sip on haze as you wander around 500,000 square feet of beer Utopia. WeldWerks Brewing Company, they helped get the style recognized and Juicy Bits will be flowing. Great Notion Brewing out of Portland is also sure to have haze available along with Wren House Brewing from Phoenix who has shown us stellar haze in recent months. Modern Times out of San Diego will be there featuring the Dankness Dojo and we recently sipped on haze from fellow San Diego brewery Pure Project and immediately added them to our GABF list.”
From Audobon AZ: “It is in this spirit of cooperation and in celebration of the monsoon season and one of our favorite Arizona birds that we announce Audubon and the Western Rivers Brewers’ Council’s (WRBC) latest collaborative brew: Rain Crow IPA. Brought to you by Borderlands, Wren House, and Crooked Tooth brewing companies”

From HopCulture: “Christmas in May? Why not? Christmas Cactus is a blend of three beers aged in bourbon barrels and brewed in collaboration with Horus Aged Ales. This beer from the Phoenix, Arizona brewery is big and bold with warm vanilla and rich chocolate notes. Sip on this one with a piece of chocolate cake around a campfire.”

From bestcities.org: “Start your visit with a stroll through Roosevelt Row Arts District, or RoRo as locals have taken to calling it. Art galleries, studios, restaurants and bars sit side by side in this walkable creative district in the downtown core. Then head over to the Green Gables neighborhood for a hoppy farmhouse ale at Wren House Brewing Co., a cozy taproom set in a 1920s bungalow.”
“Wren House Brewing has emerged as one of the best breweries in metro Phoenix, young or old. The 24th Street taproom seems to wipe the stresses from life, leaving you in a space that has a residential vibe, like a cool friend’s lake house where people bullshit and share pictures and drink good beer.”
“In this episode I sit down with Drew and the ever-elusive Preston from Wren House Brewing Company. I profess my love for their beer and we talk about stuff. Enjoy the show!”

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!
