Craft 64 in Scottsdale
The combination of wood-fired pizza and beer is classic. We’ve all had those moments when it’s all we want. Welcome to Craft 64 in Scottsdale, where wood-fired pizza, beer and wine are the centerpieces. Craft has the accolades to prove its quality. Zagat once rated Craft 64 as the No. 3 in the top 10 hottest restaurants in Scottsdale. USA Today listed it as a go-to beer destination in Arizona.
The restaurant is an upscale twist to your regular pizza and beer pit stop. Craft 64 uses local ingredients and cooks its pizza in a 100% wood oven. Craft takes it up a notch with its house-made mozzarella and bread, and 36 local Arizona beers on tap.
Craft’s owners have advanced knowledge not just of beer and wine, but of the local area. Josh Ivey is an advanced sommelier; Roger Carpenter owned a popular Australian wine bar and bistro; Scott Hagen and James Swann are Arizona beer connoisseurs.
The house-made mozzarella has made its mark on visitors. Local favorites include the margarita pizza and caprese salad.
The signature cocktails are another point where Craft 64 is ahead of the competition. You won’t find the “64” in any run-of-the-mill pizza shop. A blend of Deep Eddy grapefruit and lemon vodkas with fresh lime, it’s a perfect pairing to the fresh caprese salad.
Pizzas here are simple and elegant. From the classic margarita with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella to the fico with mozzarella, ricotta, parmigiano reggiano, truffle oil, arugula, fig sauce to the uovo with mozzarella, parmigiano reggiano, ricotta, bacon, two eggs and spinach, you’ll find advanced flavor combinations that are sure to delight
Happy hour is served 4 to 7 p.m. every day and includes Italian favorites such as an olive bowl, focaccia caprese sandwich, and garlic cheese bread. Craft 64’s wine, beer, cocktails, and food lists are conveniently located online.
