Peoria Artisan Brewery
Litchfield Park, Arizona (Original location)
Peoria, Arizona (Second location)
In 1916 as part of the war effort, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company sent executive Paul W. Litchfield to buy up land west of Phoenix to grow Egyptian long cotton that was used to reinforce tires. Paul Litchfield established the headquarters here for the Southwest Cotton Company and this company town was officially named Litchfield Park in 1926.
Among the palm and orange trees that scatter the landscape, nestled in between the miles of pathways and charming sidewalk cafes, Peioria Artisan Brewery's Litchfield Taproom serves up thirst quenching beer to fight the dry desert heat. With a humble nano-brew system and strength from unconditional friendship, something magical caught on with craft beers lovers and locals.
Less than two years after opening, Peoria Artisan Brewing expanded to a second location. With a dedication to hand-crafting brews without additives or chemicals or other “tricks of the trade” it's easy to see why they have attained such early success. Co-owner Matt Frosch tells us what makes Peoria Artisan Brewing special.
