Peoria is home to one of the TOP 25 Burgers

Post Date:01/18/2019 10:05 AM

Congratulations to Peoria Artisan Brewery who was recently recognized by the Arizona Republic for having one of the 25 Best Burgers in the Phoenix Metro Area.

peoria-artisan-brewery-burgerOwners Matthew and Kristina Frosch humbly accepted this honor, but are quick to give the credit to Executive Chef Michael Mahalick and his team, who work extremely hard to provide great food that is unique to our area and reflective of Mahalick's passion for culinary creativity. "Chef Michael leads our kitchen serving great food, from scratch, to our customers while our head brewer diligently brews his unique craft-beer creations on site," said Frosch.

The brewery aims to provide a variety of options so that anyone can find a hand-crafted brew that they will enjoy. "Typically we have 10 or so of our brews available and about 10 guest beers that we rotate frequently," said Frosch. They also offer classic, simple, creative and loving food. Both the environment and atmosphere are equally important to their success.

This honor is reflective of the growing presence of small, independent restaurants as compared to large, corporate, big-box chains. Peoria is home to an ever-expanding list of great chef-driven, locally-owned restaurant concepts.

"It is wonderful to be recognized by the Republic as well as others listed among great establishments in our neighborhood," Frosch said. "I would like to also extend special recognition to our neighbors Char, Fabio on Fire, Lakeside, Rogue Tomato, Bottega, Robyn’s Nest, and Barre 3, who work very hard day in and day out to do what they do with the highest level of quality and care for the customer."

The owners and staff credit their success on the support and patronage of the local community. “It is our customers that make these accomplishments possible. We are a reflection of our community and believe passionately in the city of Peoria. We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.”
