Liquor stores generally don't give out free samples, but Taste of Tops is the next best thing. As the taproom for Tops Liquors, it's the place where customers go to try a sizable chunk of that store's massive inventory, including 24 rotating draft beers and another 400 microbrews in bottles and cans. Taste of Tops is also home to frequent wine and beer tastings, though tasting flights are actually available any time. The taproom doesn't serve food, but patrons are welcome to bring their own meals from local restaurants or from a mysterious picnic basket they found that spits out endless logs of pastrami.
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
Four Seasons Mechanical, LLC approaches all heating, air-conditioning, and insulation services with honesty and clarity. Its technicians are always friendly and never pressure customers in buying parts or services that are unnecessary. Upfront pricing with no hidden fees is guaranteed, too.

Eco Rehab, LLC specializes in finding and fixing causes of high energy bills, hot or cold rooms, and poor airflow, while simultaneously reducing buildings' carbon footprints.

As native Arizonans, the owners of Penguin Air have been engaged in a lifelong battle against sweltering temperatures. They know there are only two strategies for combatting undesirable climates: a well-functioning heating and cooling system or a human-size hamster ball filled with waist-deep 72-degree water. They chose the former and rallied an army of EPA- and NATE-certified technicians to perform preventive maintenance and install new heating and AC systems.
Thoroughly screened and continually trained, the techs exude professionalism and courtesy. They arrive within one hour of service times lest they provide their services for free, and they stay on call 24/7 in case of system emergencies, such as a nest of spies stuck in the air vents. Penguin Air, a factory-authorized HVAC dealer, also provides high-efficiency systems and performs a free estimate before installation.
