First up is Sedona Beer Company. This family-owned brewery is committed to using local ingredients and sustainable practices. Owners Kali and Mac are locals who believe in giving Sedona a great experience, and atmosphere to spend time, and drink some great beer.

Not only is their beer super tasty (we like the Sedona Sunrise beer), but also their taproom is cozy and welcoming. Not sure what you like? The staff is happy to bring you samples and guide you through the menu!

Okay, now onto the food. This is the best brewery in Sedona to visit if you’re looking to get a good meal along with your tasting flight. The Dad Bod Burger, Beer Cheese Nachos, and sweet potato waffle fries are a must! You can also get them with vegan cheese!

Sedona doesn’t have very many restaurants or bars open late, but Mooney’s is one of them! In fact, Mooney’s is the only late-night spot where you can grab a bite past 9:00pm.

Mooney’s Irish Pub is a great place to enjoy a cold beer and some authentic Irish food. The pub offers a wide range of beers, including Irish and American favorites.

Mooney’s also has an extensive menu, with something to suit everyone. Not sure what to eat? Opt for the Shepard’s Pie or the Irish Fish & Chips–they are both truly delicious!

The pub is located in the heart of Sedona, and it’s the perfect place to relax after a long day of exploring. Looking for a place to watch a sports game? Mooney’s has four TVs where you can catch all the action.

They also have live entertainment, Thursday through Saturday and occasionally on Sundays too. Thursday nights are always Karaoke night.

Calling all craft beer lovers! If you’re in search of distinguished craft beers in a community-oriented brewery, Mother Road Brewing Company is an awesome choice.

This brewery is in Flagstaff, located about 50 minutes away from Sedona. While it is a bit further away, it’s a great stop if you happen to be detouring or paying a visit to the city of Flagstaff.

On the inside, you’ll find a decent amount of comfortable seating meant to make you feel right at home. The massive outdoor seating area provides a different yet still memorable experience for beer tasting, even in the winter (there are lots of fire pits and heat lamps to keep patrons warm). It’s also dog-friendly here!

In terms of food, there is a small food truck on the premises with a limited menu, so don’t expect the type of food you’d typically get at a brewery/restaurant setting.
