Next weekend I’ll be taking a group of junior golfers to their first of a series of five 18 hole tournaments.

Golf Inc. – one of the industry’s leading publications – awarded V’s Taproom of Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia as the most improved public restaurant of 2015. V’s Taproom, managed by BlueStar Resort & Golf, invested more than $180,000 in a redesign which has created an overall revenue growth of $1 million and an annual net operating income increase of nearly $400,000 since the rebrand.

“Recognition from Golf Inc. shows just how much we’ve changed in the past two years,” said Mark Nelson, General Manager of V’s Taproom. “We’re very proud of the work we’ve done to establish V’s Taproom as not only one of the best golf course eateries in town, but also one of the Valley’s best neighborhood restaurants.”

In addition to recognition from Golf Inc., V’s Taproom also was named among the 2016 top-5 best American/contemporary restaurants by AZ Big Media’s “Best of Arizona Business” rankings. Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia climbed 3 places from the 2015 rankings to be named in the Top 2 for Best Public Courses 2016. Amid stiff competition from We-Ko-Pa, Grayhawk, and Troon North, the team at Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia is delighted with this latest accolade.

V’s menu features fresh, locally sourced ingredients with items made from scratch daily. Selections range from the delicious Kale Veggie Salad to the restaurant’s signature “Millionaire Burger” and four-hour braised short rib “street-style” tacos. Pasta dishes include Shrimp & Angel Hair Pasta, Tagliatelle Bolognese and Basil Chicken Pasta. There’s even a showcase Pizza Bar where V’s pizza artisans prepare fresh, gourmet pizzas while guests watch.

In addition to national favorites, V’s Taproom offers a wide selection of craft and locally brewed beers as well as a gluten-free cider. The restaurant also offers a selection of wines on tap – yes, on tap – from One Hope Wines from the Central Coast of California. In addition to providing the innovative tap wine option, One Hope gives back to society by directing 50 percent of the profits to benefit groups that fight breast cancer and childhood autism.

The ambiance is set with upscale, intimate booth seating around unique butcher-block style tables made of indigenous Arizona mesquite wood. Large windows bring in natural light and beautiful views of the golf course and desert beyond. A large indoor-outdoor bar leads to an expansive patio while multiple flat-screen televisions (including a massive 70-inch set) allow for comfortable viewing both indoors and out.

V’s Taproom is open to the public and located adjacent to the Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia near the Loop 303 and Vistancia Blvd. To book a table, visit www.TaproomHang.com or call 623.328.5110.
