Located on a dead end street in an industrial area - you definitely won't accidentally stumble across this place, you need to be looking for it. Large tank out front, as well as a decent sized patio with a nice view of the mountains and military aircraft landing at the base across the highway. Inside is a long room with brewing equipment in the back, and a small upstairs area (this was closed the day we were there for a private party). Live music later in the evening, created a nice casual atmosphere. Bar service only, if you order food they give you a number and will track you down to deliver it. All of the beers were solid .. nothing outstanding, but I didn't have any complaints either. The food was typical bar food, but it went down well with the beers.
Nice place to spend an evening if you happen to be in Tucson ..

I flew into Tuscon 5/30/13 and went to the brewery (not the bistro) since it was close to my hotel.
The interior was okay: an old warehouse converted into a decent sized brewery with a small restaurant and bar; an old warehouse garage door opens up to a small patio.
The bar only had three beers on tap, so that was a bit disappointing. The barmaid was attentive and friendly. When I ordered food, she made sure to order my hotwings first and then put in the cheeseburger order afterwards since (according to her) the kitchen would have just made everything at once. The two beers I had (their oatmeal stout and nut brown ale) were decent if unremarkable.
The food also was good if mediocre. The hotwings (they have about five or six degrees of heat - I opted for the mid-level "hot" variety) were tasty if a little overcooked. Plenty of celery, carrots, and dip came with them. I wasn't offered any napkins to help keep my fingers or face clean. The cheeseburger was tasty and sloppy.
No regrets with going here, and I would go back. I just wonder if the bistro (several miles away) may have better quality food and a wider selection of beers made by the brewery. After all, this is a brewery facility primarily , in a slightly industrial part of Tuscon(off of 44th St.), and apparently with a more limited food menu than the bistro (on E. Tanque Verde), so I do factor these conditions into my overall rating of Nimbus.
