Local First Arizona, or LFA, offers an array of programs and incentives for both the consumer and the local business owner to help shift dollars to the local economy.

“Four Peaks Brewery is an Arizona brewery and restaurant. The original and main location is in an old creamery and warehouse on 8th Street in Tempe, Arizona, about 1/2 mile east of the campus of Arizona State University. Nearby Scottsdale, Arizona boasts an additional location, and, in response to high demand (nearly 40,000 barrels in 2012 alone), another Tempe brewing site opened in the summer of 2012. The Tempe site was selected following a review of 25 potential sites, including the famed Sunkist facility in Mesa, Arizona and numerous warehouses in downtown Phoenix.”
