        There’s a new Brewery downtown dedicated to making deliciously drinkable beers,The Phoenix Ale Brewery located at 3002 E. Washington St.  The co-owner, George Hancock, is an Englishman who made his mark with craft brewing as the founder of Pyramid Brewing Co. in Seattle. When we walked into the tasting room George was behind the counter operating the taps, shook our hands like he was meeting new neighbors, and asked if he could pour us a taste

If you’ve ever wanted to visit a pub in England and hang out with the locals, but you didn’t have the cash or a passport, then this beer will magically transport you there. [...]

Here are some tips that We at Car Street Journal have picked up and learned over the years of living in this desert to keep cool. 

If your air is not blowing too cold, first try blowing off the condenser with an air gun.  See if there is garbage blocking the flow of air over it.  Also check to make sure your fans are working properly.

You can do a few quick checks to see if your system is leaking freon. Look around where all the crimps and fittings are.  If you see what looks like wet dust (assuming your engine bay is not covered in oil).  If you do see damp dust, you may have a leaking crimp, or o-ring/fitting.  Depending on where you see it.  Also look at the front of the compressor….look for the same thing, oil and/or damp dust.
