Phrases like “high-end pub fare” get tossed around a lot these days, even at places that are just serving solid wings or pretty decent microwave pizza. But the menu at the new 12 West spot in Mesa actually does exceed the usual bar food expectations. In 2016, founders Bryan McCormick and Noel Garcia (who has since moved on) started 12 West as a craft beer tap room inside Barnone at Agritopia in Gilbert. The Gilbert tap room did not — does not — have a kitchen, but patrons could BYOF or snag something from neighbors like Fire & Brimstone, Joe’s Farm Grill, and Uprooted Kitchen.
