Kali Gajewski and Mac Crawford are the husband-and-wife team behind the newest of just two microbreweries in Sedona. She’s committed to building a craft-beer scene in her hometown with small batch, continuously evolving brews using local ingredients as much as possible.

When Gajewski has visitors in town she takes them to Devils Bridge, West Fork, and Red Rock Crossing to hike. Guided mountain-bike tours from Over the Edge are also a hit; they can be tailored to accommodate any ability level. 

Drink

Tucked into Oak Creek Canyon, Indian Gardens is Gajewski’s must-stop for coffee; they roast all their beans locally. “I always send out-of-town friends out for a day of beer and wine tasting,” says Gajewski. “Some of my favorites in the Verde Valley include Page Springs Cellars and THAT Brewery.” 

Eat

Most of the time, Momo’s Kitchen food truck is parked uptown serving fresh Korean specialties. “The place is run by an amazing family,” Gajewski says, “and you can feel the love in the food.” Another favorite is Coffee Pot Restaurant, which has 101 omelets on the menu. “I love the huevos rancheros and I think it’s even better when you add chorizo. And I have to mention the chicken wrap and deluxe cheeseburger with sweet-potato truffle fries at Sedona Beer Co.’s new brewpub!” 

Stay

Gajewski loves the views from the Forest Houses Resort. “In the fall, it’s the perfect base to see the changes of the leaves in a way you didn’t think possible in Arizona.”
