Prescott Brewing Company® still  ranked in top 10 microbreweries in AZBigMedia 20th Anniversary “Ranking Arizona” public opinion publication

This early pioneer of the microbrewing industry in Arizona has been voted in the top 10 every year since 2000, and has garnered anywhere from the #6 spot in 2000 up to the #1 spot for multiple years, and #5 in this 20th Anniversary edition of the publication.

Prescott, AZ:  May 23, 2017    Opened in 1994, this husband and wife team (John and Roxane Nielsen) have successfully maintained a relevancy within the fast-growing craft beer/microbrewery industry in Arizona.  AZBIGMEDIA conducts this purely- opinion poll via an interactive website where Arizonans can vote for their favorite of 20,000 businesses in 250 categories.  The brewpub is located downtown Prescott since 1994;  the production plant located on Lear Lane near the Prescott airport, was in full operation by 2011. 

For the most part, beers brewed at the Gurley Street pub location are served in-house or in growlers to go.  Beers brewed and packaged at the production plant are distributed throughout Arizona.  Prescott Brewing Company® is announcing a rebranding currently in process, which will include the release of three new retail canned products….Lodgepole Light Cream Ale, PalePricot Pale Ale and Manzanita Red Ale will soon be hitting the on-premise retailers and off-premise shelves.  These three new releases will increase the Company’s line-up of packaged product to six varieties. 

One of the most exciting aspects to winning the #5 place in Ranking Arizona’s 20th Anniversary edition, is that the brewery, from the small  northern Arizona town of Prescott, AZ, is the only one of the top 10 outside of the Maricopa County area to have been recognized by the public.  Prescott Brewing Company®  has consistently provided employment for  between 65-75 employees since it opened in 1994, was a founding member of the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild in 1998, and is the oldest continuously operating craft brewery in Arizona. 

“With the introduction of three new varieties of Prescott Brewing Company®’s packaged products”, says owner John Nielsen, “we hope to continue to be recognized throughout the state for our longevity, consistency and commitment to the craft beer revolution.”

 “Not bad for little ole’ Prescott, AZ” says Roxane….”come visit us next time you choose Prescott for a road trip.”
