PBC® The Pub is well-established and highly successful, with a history of annual growth since inception in 1994.
We foster a team-oriented management style. We offer an excellent casual, yet professional, dining experience for our guests, never pretentious, emphasizing a “fun & friendly…brewpub style!!!” menu selections and service. We are high-volume, fast-paced and right in the middle of all the action for the dozens of arts & craft fairs, free summertime concerts, festivals, dancing, parades, and holiday events that take place right outside our front doorstep on Prescott’s hometown courthouse Plaza.
We are community-minded (see how) and involved in many local events and fundraisers. Our kitchen is a 99% scratch kitchen, providing a large & varied menu. Our bar is lively and we attract people of all ages and backgrounds, from kids to boomers to oldsters! We’re hands-on owners and look for managers with the same philosophy.
In 2008 we launched our first products for distribution outside the Prescott area. Eventually we added Achocolypse Porter to the mix
We bought a nice chunk of land out by the Prescott airport and began development of plans to build a production plant. Unfortunately the great recession hit during 2008 and 2009 and the economy took a nose-dive. The plans for the production plant were put on hold, but we didn’t let that stop us from moving forward with distribution plans. So we did an about-face and purchased a warehouse about a mile from the pub, installed a beer storage cellar and set up a manual two-head canning machine. We began kegging off Liquid Amber Ale and Ponderosa IPA that we being brewed on our original 1994 7-barrel brewhouse. We transported those kegs to the warehouse facility, put them in the cellar, let everything settle down, and began our canning & distribution adventures with those two beers. We eventually introduced Achocolypse Chocolate Porter and life was good. . But, alas, we found ourselves with an unexpected problem…too much distribution was taking a toll on our ability to provide our pub guests with the variety of beers on tap that they had grown accustomed to…and boy, did they let us know!
By 2009 we started having plans drawn for the production plant on the Airpark property. Construction began in 2010, and we finally had…..PBC® – The Micro Brand new production plant, 30-barrel system with multiple fermenters, brite tanks, silo, working lab, a “real” can line…everything we needed to move forward to this new chapter in PBC’s life.
We now offer seven brands in draft form and 12-ounce cans that can be purchased on & off premise around Arizona. Our originals Liquid Amber ale and Ponderosa IPA, Achocolypse Chocolate Porter, and our newest offerings…Lodgepole Light, a cream ale dating back to opening days in March of 1994, Manzanita Red, and Palepricot, a pale ale infused with 100% organic apricot juice. So, we have these six year-round, and add Christmas City Ale to the line-up surrounding the Christmas holiday season… named to honor Arizona’s Official Christmas City, designated as such by Governor Rose Moffett in 1959.
Prescott Brewing Company will be a Quarter of the Century on March 15, 2019…a true and still-standing Pioneer in the Craft Brewery World!
Thanks to our many loyal supporters, locals and visitors alike. 25 years of hard labor…nah, not that bad, but 25 years in the restaurant business is a LONG time! So, we’ll just keep on-keepin’ on and are excited to see where our road continues to take us.
YOU…OUR GUESTS OF PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE are included amongst those who’ve allowed us to thrive, contribute to our community and keep 75 employees on staff all year long. As everyone knows, there were a couple of sad years a few years ago. We believe every one of us knows personally of someone who has struggled with job loss, or small business owner who has had to lay off a good employee, or maybe has had to close their business. Luckily PBC made it through the turmoil a few years back.
And, now, I’d like to end by reminding everyone that each of us can make a different in our communities by shopping local, supporting locally-owned, independent businesses, supporting our local charities and non-profits and volunteering for our favorite causes. Prescott is an amazing community…let’s keep it that way! THANKS A BUNCH
