Jaime's Local Love: SIP Coffee & Beer

Sip Coffee & Beer was started with the goal of creating a community space that served up the best that the craft movement has to offer, local favorites, and entertainment worth talking about.

From the start, the Sip crew have embraced the power of community, compassion, and renewing a neighborhood's connection to what really matters.

The materials you see in Sip's spaces have been reclaimed from the original buildings as much as possible. Most of the furnishings and decorations inside have been handmade or picked from Arizona yard sales or antique shops. Recycling and sustainability along with great service, food and drinks will always be a continuous goal.

All three locations of Sip work directly with the neighboring community to develop events to serve their interests and needs and highlight their talents.
