This brewery isn't much to look at from the outside, and its hidden away off the beaten path in an industrial park in southern Tucson. Fortunately it's worth the trip for some of the better micros in the state. The few times I've stopped by it wasn't too busy so I was able to sit right up to the bar with no trouble. The inside is quaint, somewhat unfinished, but relaxing nonetheless. There is a pool table and a couple games if you are interested. The walls are covered with a good supply of merchandise- t-shirts, signs, etc.
The place was clean and the beer was fresh. I had a sampling of all their brews and the lone bartender was friendly, although I was sad when he told me the "Mug Club" was closed. It looked like some of the regulars had purchased mugs in the past and got to come in and fill em up cheap! How did I miss out on that? All the standard brews were on tap, including a Nitro Stout, much like Guiness but with a slightly more robust flavor. There were 7 or 8 choices altogether.
The food menu is definitely more Pub-fare, so I wouldn't recommend it for a nice dinner, but there are plenty of appetizers and sandwiches to go along with your beer. The price is reasonable too, so its a great value overall. I really like this place, unfortunately it's a trek from the northwest part of town. If you get a chance, stop on in. I recommend the Dirty Guera Blonde, Oatmeal Stout, or Old Monkeyshine (if you want something a little stronger)...
