Located along quaint Aspen Avenue, Blendz is your local, neighborhood wine bar although this one is a little different. Inside, guests can create their own blend of wine right on the premises. It works like this: first you choose five different wines and then you have three chances to mix the perfect blend. When it's all said and done, you get to take your own customized bottle home. Some of the varietals include Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and even wines made locally in the nearby Verde Valley.
Mother Road Brewing takes its name from historic Route 66, in which the moniker is another one given to the iconic drive. Here, the beers are completely local, from hops to bottling, everything is done in-house. Some of the beers include two Black IPAs (one a nitro brew), a Red IPA, an American IPA, a session IPA and a Kölsch just to be different. Moreover, the brewery churns out seasonal beers from January to December. Mother Road doesn't serve food, however Pizzicletta right next door will deliver pies right to the brewery's tap room or to your patio table. The eclectic pizza is the perfect accompaniment to any of Mother's beers.
