Pinetop Brewing Company
Earlier in February, Pinetop Brewing Company competed against 118 other breweries at the Strong Beer Festival, which showcased over 400 local and regional beers from several states including Arizona, Colorado, Montana, California and New Mexico. Pinetop Brewing Co.’s Grand Cru took home two golds for the Best in Show and Best Belgium/Trappist Beer. Grand Cru is a 7.00% ABV reddish brown beer with hints of dried cherry, dry red wine, and caramel-like malt.
This is a huge success for the brewery, owners James and Brigid Maloney, their head brewer John Francisco, and Pinetop-Lakeside in the White Mountains. The goal of Pinetop Brewing Co. has always been to make extremely high-quality beer in a sophisticated pub on White Mountain Blvd. They carry beers that no one else in the White Mountains serves including their exclusively Belgium style beers and other fine, bottled beers. As they say, “Small town, big beer!”

Mount Baldy (Western Apache: Dził Łigai White Mountain) is a mountain in eastern Arizona in the United States. It is the highest point in the White Mountains and Apache County. It is the fifth-highest point in the state, and the highest outside the San Francisco Peaks in the Flagstaff area. With a summit elevation of 11,409 feet (3,477 m), the peak of Mount Baldy rises above the tree line and is left largely bare of vegetation, lending the mountain its current name.
The summit of Mount Baldy is within the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. An unnamed sub-peak with an elevation of 10,890 feet (3,319 m) exists approximately 0.5 miles (0.8 km) to the north of the summit that is off reservation and accessible to the public via maintained trail. A third peak, Ord Peak, sits about three miles northwest of Baldy Peak, not to be confused with Mount Ord (Apache County, Arizona).
Mount Baldy is one of the most sacred mountains to the Apache of Arizona. The Western Apache of Arizona inhabited the areas within their most four sacred mountain ranges: the White Mountains of Eastern Arizona, the Pinaleno Mountains near the town of Safford in southeastern Arizona, the Four Peaks near the City of Phoenix and the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff.
When Captain George M. Wheeler visited the mountaintop in 1873, he described the view as "The most magnificent and effective of any among the large number that have come under my observation". Wheeler named the mountain Mount Thomas after General Lorenzo Thomas, who fought in the Mexican–American War. It later became Mount Baldy. The name Mount Thomas has been assigned to a nearby peak by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Mount Baldy also contains the headwaters of the Little Colorado River and Salt River and produces the most abundant trout fishing streams in Arizona. No other mountain in Arizona produces as many rivers and streams. Along its slope are numerous man made lakes. The area around Mount Baldy also averages the most abundant precipitation in Arizona. Wildlife is abundant on the mountain and includes the recently introduced Mexican Grey Wolf.
While looking northeast from Historic Fort Apache (elevation 5,290 ft) Mount Baldy rises 6,130 ft in elevation.
