Meet Owners Tamara and Steve Morken
Steve and Tamara Morken owned and operated Rimside Grill & Cabins in Pine, Arizona from June 2004 to June 2012 when they converted the location to THAT Brewery & Pub.
The amount of experience from day to day operations of creating recipes, inventory control, accounting, marketing, employee management, bar tending, dishwashing, waiting tables, consulting, cooking, home brewing, training with a master brewer and brewing THAT beer, developing the distribution network associated with that process has provided the couple valuable insight into the craft beer industry.
Prior to opening Rimside Grill & Cabins, Steve Morken has over 18 years of business experience in the corporate arena with Honeywell Aerospace. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business from the University of Phoenix. While employed with Honeywell, Steve held several key positions including inventory management, pricing, marketing, sales and new business development.

THAT Arizona Trail Ale
THAT Arizona Trail Ale is the official beer of the Arizona National Scenic Trail, a continuous, 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail across Arizona from Mexico to Utah that links deserts, mountains, canyons, communities and people.
The Arizona Trail Association’s mission is to build, maintain, promote, protect and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land. THAT Brewery and Pub in Pine Arizona is located just off the trail from Pine Trailhead.
This partnership brings many hikers into the small community of Pine to shop, eat, drink, pick up packages at the post office and restock their packs for the rest of their journey. Part of the proceeds from every Arizona Trail Ale sold goes directly to the nonprofit association, allowing them to maintain and build additional trails.
