Description: In 2007, the historic Valley National Bank, in Downtown Chandler was transformed into a destination for Craft Beer and food lovers alike with the opening of SanTan Brewing Company. Our goal at the brewpub is to provide a neighborhood spot where family, friends, and colleagues can gather and enjoy a cold pint of freshly brewed beer using only the finest malts, hops, and barley! In addition to our core beers on draught year round, Brewmaster Anthony Canecchia keeps things exciting for SanTan fans by releasing specialty seasonal beers, small batch specialty beers, a weekly Cask Conditioned Ale as well as guest beers from brewers both local and around the nation. Like the Brewmaster says "Craft Beer for Beer Drinking".

“Micro-brewery in downtown Chandler...on the square!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

If you love micro-brews, and non-fast food options (definitely NOT your typical bar food), you'll love SanTan Brewing Co. On the square in downtown Chandler, they offer a great selection of seasonal and staple micro-brews - including "samplers". Outdoor seating available - plenty of indoor seating, too. Good place to watch a game - several large flatscreens positioned around the interior. Definitely worth a visit!

“Lively Hangout Spot - Good Food & Beer”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Downtown Chandler has quite a few trendy food spots; SanTan Brewing Company is one of them. The outside is bare brick and has lots of huge windows to let natural light in. There are two big areas for outdoor seating with cooling misters as well. We were greeted nicely upon entry and taken to our table right away. We were there in the middle of the afternoon on the Saturday of the 4th of July weekend and it was PACKED. All of the seating is high top tables and there are numerous TVs all around the walls. At the very back is a separate room with a bunch of beer vats.

Our waitress came right away and I had some questions about the menu since it was our first time at SanTan. She was new and didn't know the menu well; she was quick to go ask and come right back with the answers though. We ordered a goblet of Hibiscus Pale Ale, Chip & Dip Trio appetizer, Deluxe Grilled Cheese and Southwest Chicken Sandwich for lunch.

The Hibiscus Pale Ale was a beautiful red-orange color and smelled great. The flavor was very fruity. The Chip & Dip Trio came with homemade chips (delicious & a must!) and dips of brewery cheese, guacamole, and pico de gallo. The brewery cheese looked like canned cheese at first, but it was my favorite of the 3. It had great flavor but could use a little more heat in it. The guacamole and pico were both fresh made and tasty. We ran out of chips before the dips- unfortunately there are no free refills on the chips. You can buy extra chips alone though. My Southwest grilled chicken sandwich was good; nice char on the chicken but maybe a touch over-cooked. The green chili and veggie toppings were great. My wife's Deluxe Grilled Cheese is described as having 'beer bread' which is like thick pita bread. I think she was expecting a thick, toasted 'regular' bread. She didn't say anything, but I'm sure SanTan would have brought her something else if she didn't like it. There was a lot of cheese on it and the veggies were fresh.

My biggest disappointment was as we were leaving through the front doors, the restaurant was not that busy anymore, there were several hostesses standing around chatting and the manager leaning against the wall by the door and NO ONE said "thanks" or "come again" or even acknowledged us. Wow.

“Great beer, great food, great atmosphere ... one of the best!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We love craft breweries and tried San Tan while visiting the area looking for a new home. Needless to say, we've been back 3 more times in the 6 short months we've lived here, which is a testament to how good it is in light of how many great restaurants there are in / around Phoenix! The beer is tremendous (my favorite is a classically hoppy IPA called HopShock). You might normally expect food at a brewery to be somewhat of an after-thought, but not here! Great variety on the menu, everything very fresh, something for everyone. The atmosphere is very family friendly with a lively bar-type scene inside and some quieter / more relaxed seating outside. You can't miss with this place, we'll keep going back!

“nice place to hang out with friends/collegue”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Nice and cool place to hang out with friends and colleuge. The bar is pretty cool since you can either watch people walk by on the street, watch a game or just chat among each other. The food was awesome for bar food. Perfect portion and with your drinks. Came her twice, once with wife and she loves it. The other time with an out of town collegue and he mentioned he loves this place.
