A new bar on the Rialto block downtown will stick strictly to Arizona wines and beers when it opens its doors on Sept. 1.
The Good Oak Bar, at 316 E. Congress St., will be the latest downtown installment of Flagstaff restaurateur Derrick Widmark, who opened a second location of his Flag eatery, Diablo Burger, on the same block in May.
Like Diablo Burger, which sources most of its ingredients in-state, Good Oak’s menu will focus on the local.
The selections are still being worked out, but Widmark said some of the breweries on his wish list include the Dragoon and Ten 55 brewing companies in Tucson and Wanderlust Brewing Co. from Flagstaff.
“The goal is to provide a taste of place,” Widmark said. “We want people to eat and drink things that were made and grown locally.”
