The Perch Brewery isn’t like other venues. Sure, it offers a long list of outstanding beers, live music five nights a week, great food, and a 6,000 square foot, misted rooftop patio with a panoramic view of downtown, but what really sets the brewery apart is the 70 exotic rescue birds that call it home.
A 30 minute drive southeast of Phoenix, the brewery has been serving ice-cold beers and rescuing birds for over 25 years. According to the Perch’s website, every year thousands of pet birds end up abandoned by owners who don’t know how to properly care for them. The brewery takes these birds in and provides them with a second chance.
With the way the birds chirp and caw along to the live music, they certainly sound happy. The Perch is home to everything from hyacinth macaws to umbrella cockatoos to African grey parrots. They nest in cages on the patio, where you can have a look while enjoying a drink. Just make sure you don’t put your fingers too close to the cage. They do bite.
The brewery stresses that they don’t breed, sell, or buy any exotic birds. Their only goal is to provide abandoned birds a loving home.
With lush greenery and colorful flapping wings, the brewery provides a slice of tropical paradise in the middle of Arizona.
