To provide the best locally brewed beer in the Southwest with uncompromising demand for quality and showmanship.



Black Flag Alewerks will provide innovative, artfully brewed craft ales which satisfy both the newcomer and seasoned beer connoisseur alike, right in the heart of Phoenix.

Black Flag Alewerks is a Phoenix craft brewery emphasizing inventive and non-traditional flavors and a variety of rotating beers. Our ales are modeled to be a perfect fusion of old-world methods and new-world flavors, drawing much of our inspiration from the local community. Distancing ourselves from predictable, uninspired brewing, we utilize local ingredients to boost the local economy, and give our customers a taste of the real Arizona.

Our team has over 40 years of combined brewing experience. Our head brewer has more than twenty thousand hours of brewing experience, overseeing the production and sales of over two million pints of beer. He was trained by a renowned German brewmaster, was the former brewer at Big Sky Brewing Co – Montana’s largest and most nationally recognized brewery – and he was the former Head Brewer at Uncle Bears in Queen Creek, AZ.

Our advisory board having a brewery owner and a 10+ year veteran head brewer from Arizona’s largest brewery. Our team now sets out to amaze the Phoenix craft beer market and attract new customers with our wide-range of beer selection.

“I recently hired Black Flag Alewerks as the brewers for my wedding. Black Flag Alewerks was incredibly professional in both their recommendations of which beer to brew and the quality of their work.Not only is the quality of Black Flag’s beer on-par and frequently better than the best microbreweries in Albuquerque, they are incredibly professional and know how to get the job done well.”

“We featured only Black Flag Alewerks beer at our wedding and were more than satisfied. All of our guests raved about how fresh and smooth both the pale ale and wheat beers tasted, and continued to ask where the beer was from. Everyone was very excited to learn that the brewery was in the works of opening up a location. Overall, the beer exceeded our expectations on taste and delighted all of our guests throughout the evening. We highly recommend trying any of Black Flags several beer selections.”

After a successful public speaking and debating career, I wanted to pursue my passion of making great craft beer. I found Phoenix to be a wonderful city that embraces local businesses and has a huge market for quality brewed, locally sourced, craft beer.
