This was stop #9 along a pub crawl for my wife and I and two friends in the greater Tucson area. The pub is located in a storefront setting along the main commercial street in the university district, and is basically a pizza restaurant that serves some beer that they brew, plus they have a great selection of beers on tap (43) and in bottles (?) from other breweries. (My selection rating at 3.0 reflects a downward score because they had only two of their beers available, and an upward score because of the other breweries' beers offered.)

We ordered their two beers (a third one was out) in sampler glasses plus 4 others. Our friend ordered Hopslam in a bottle, so this place is capable of getting some great beer offerings. Both of the in-house beers were graded as being very tasty (the Down Pourter Imperial Porter was rated at B+ and the Saison Dos Santos at B-), so it's a disappointment that they don't brew more selections.

We were not hungry so we ordered only some bread sticks (which were very good), but nothing seemed much different on the food menu that you wouldn't find in any other good pizza restaurant. With only two of their beers to sample it is difficult to judge how good this 'brewery' could be to decide if a future visit would be a good idea, but we likes what we had, so I think we'd go back again if we're ever in town again.

Kickass spot with some cool bartenders. There was one reasonably hot girl and a solid beer geek guy bartender, but also a heifer, but that's EOE for you. Plus beer guys can tolerate a bit of mass more than other hobbies. Not a detraction in my mind, unless they are all like that.

Lots of great beers on tap and the bottle shop is off to a good start. The old man (I think his name was Eric) was entertaining but he's not a beer geek by any means. If that's the same guy who made ice cream at that same place in the 90's, then he's got some staying power. Maybe he owns the building?

Good food, good beer and the occasional UofA hottie? What's not to like?

This place is somehow on a 100 Best Beer Bars list (that's nationwide best) and I don't quite get it.

On beer alone, yes, this place is outstanding. The selection is comprehensive and when I dropped in had a number of different gems such as Bell's Hopslam, Ommegang's Adoration, Destihl's Clarice and a Weizenbock created by a number of Arizona breweries for beer week. There were so many beers to try it was overwhelming, so kudos to that.

Also, the gal that was serving me was a bit of a beer nut herself it seemed and had a number of recommendations and was very accommodating of me as I tried to find beers (since many that I asked for were kicked).

So on beer, this place is a 5.

For food, I'd say it's more of a 3, however. The pizza is massive and good enough, particularly for a college kid, but it really detracts from the great beer selection. There seems to be a real mismatch. I'm not saying I need world-class food to go with the world-class beer, but rather, quality, tasty food to go with quality, tasty beer.

I can say similar things about the atmosphere, which for me was probably a 2. The atmosphere is most evidently intended for the college set. It's cheap, feels kind of dirty and antiseptic, and again, doesn't match the great beer selection. I sat at the so-called bar area, which was nothing more than a glorified countertop and was extremely short.

In an ideal world, I'd have found the same great selection at a spot catering to the 25+ crowd with a bit more taste to it. Oh wait, I did find that and then some, in a place called Tap and Bottle.

Despite a huge number of craft brew specialty bars opening recently, this is still handily the best place to sample brew in Tucson. 40+ constantly rotating taps and not a macrobrew among them means there's always plenty you want to sample. Treat the process and staff right and they are generous with samples. I really like that they offer 5 oz pours for nearly the same price per ounce, and hope that never changes, as there's maybe no better way to drink beer than through rotations of a couple complementary brews at a time. Keep the good stuff going Austin and crew

Where did this gem come from?
In Tucson for a business trip, and got in late. Not much open beer wise...but POI said check out 1702...very good BA rating, and might be open. Lots of taps, some house beers and supposedly spot on pizzas.
Got there about 5 minutes before close, place full/everyone having fun...but last call had already sounded...depressed.
But very nice bar lady spoke with manager...and he comes over and makes it seem like they just opened. Outstanding! Grabbed a glass of their Imp IPA, and a solid taste of their Imp Red. Both great. Then ordered their Hop Bread ( based on BA reviews). Didn't order their pizza...but aroma was amazing coming out of kitchen.
Lots of great conversation; learning about their beers, aims...and beer store. Beer store?
Well, since no one was pushing me out the door...grabbed a full pint of the Imp Red.
So to say the least...really good people matched up with really good beer and really good food.
Came back next afternoon and checked out beer store...OMG again. Relatively small, but....
Oracle, Hop Slam, 4 different years of Odell Woodcut, Mirror Mirror, great western breweries as well as serious Belgium...and on and on. Just a diamond. Again great people, great conversation.

Been to Tucson a number of times and kinda know the breweries, bars and stores I like...
but after this trip 1702 will now be my first stop... for beer, food, and a few bottles for the suitcase home.

Congrats to the 1702 team...they are what beer places are supposed to be!
Can not recommend enough.

This place has one of the best beer lists in Tucson! I love the variety, there is always something new to try. The atmosphere is casual. Food is good, pizza and calzones only, with a couple of salads available. The different kinds of pizzas available are interesting. And they have hop bread, which is pretty amazing!

All in all, I highly recommend.

The first thing to comment on is pricing. Its not cheap but you get what you pay for. The pizza is the most expensive thing there, but it is freakin phenominal.

The servers are generally pretty nice and they know enough about the beers to help you if you have any questions (which is more than I can say for ANY other craft beer-related bar in Tucson). They have a great selection of 52 different taps (sometimes only 49 or so are on but still great) and I don't think I have ever been in there and seen the same beer on the menu twice (except Duchesse De Bourgogne which I have seen the last 2-3 times and I only go every few months). My favorite things about this place are:

-The number of choices
-The option for flights so you can try all those things you want to try without blacking out
-The hop bread (awesome!)
-And the small but usually good selection of bottles they sell to take home.

I recommend this place to everyone I know that is interested in craft beer because you are not likely to find it unless someone tells you about it (thats how I heard, from customers that came through the line in the grocery store I worked at)

EDIT: They are now open on Sundays too (at least during football season but probably after). They don't offer slices on Sunday but their whole pizzas are better and well worth it. Still the best place in Tucson.

Walking in it feels like a typical college restaurant bar. It has decor with tons of craft brewery t-shirts framed on the walls. There are different seating arrangements to suit your fancy. On the larger tables there are lazy susans built in which is neat. The big complaint I have is that there must be no noise insulation. No matter when I go it is always so loud.

The service is always prompt upon walking in. In no time there are waters and menus on your table. The waiters always seem to be willing to help out in choosing a beer to go along with your pizza. Helpful when there are about 50 rotating beers that change weekly. They also provide free samples if you are unsure about the beer, which is awesome!

The only huge miss at the restaurant is the food. Sad to say, the pizza here really is kind crappy, not inedible, but just a hair better than Dominos. This is true unacceptable considering the price. The only reason I really keep going back is for the beer.

Visited a few times on the recommendation by several BA's.

Typical college-y/divey atmosphere you'd find for a bar this close to a college campus...which isn't a totally bad thing IMO. Smell of pizza pervades the air, a few flat screens showing sports.

Service prompt and friendly, during both visits the attractive female 'tenders were great.

Great selection of 40+ beers, mixed between flagships and some esoteric selection. Good focus on local and CA beers. All were served at good temperature and clean. Good Cali IPA's like FW Double Jack, BP Sculpin, GreenFlash on tap...frankly I could've just drank those all night.

I'm a bit of a pizza snob, and although the "slice" here is quite big, the 'za is a bit bland...crust got a little soggy too. No biggie, as it hit the bill to sponge up the good beers I drank here.

Prices were reasonable, although there weren't any happy hours specials or discount nights.

I'm glad I visited and will return here again when I'm in Tucson.

Really cool place. Large tables to encourage socializing. Almost every brewing company represented on the walls in the form of framed t-shirts or 6/12-pack cases used as wallpaper. Around 50 draft beers to choose from, all served in the proper glassware at the proper price. Excellent representation from around the world and around the U.S. The pizza we ordered was good. We ordered pepperoni and jalapeno but there seemed to be a suspiciously low number of hot peppers present on our pie. Our server was nice and had a great knowledge of beer. Provided samples when requested. We ordered an 18" pizza but one slice is usually enough. Expensive for a slice but they are huge, so it's definitely enough to fill you up. Plus, with all the great beer on tap, you don't want to fill up on pizza. You want to fill up on brew!

52 Taps and they change every few days. Many are uncommon US, some are local, and usually there's even 4-5 Belgians. Some bottled as well but highlight is the drafts. Although Tucson beer selection is universally improving, this is the best selection by far. All beers are available in multiple sizes - a feature not well documented. When you see the price menu, it's usually for the largest size. When your brain hurts on which of the 52 you need to try before it runs out remember, you can get smaller sampler sizes and try more.

Atmosphere is nothing special or fancy -a clean, fairly small college bar decorated with beer T-shirts.

I find the food quite good. The pizza is thin crust and the toppings are fresh. Slices are huge - check the size out before you go overboard. Other snacks are good as well, and they've started making their own ice cream.

Bar sits adjacent to University of Arizona campus and thus is subject to occasional tidal waves of students depending on sporting events, graduations, campus events, etc. At the irregular times of being overwhelmed, best pass and go to one of the other larger college joints.

Among the comments, there have been some disparaging ones about the service. I find the staff friendly, fun, and very knowledgeable about beer. If folks have had problems, it's likely during one of the times when this small place is overrun. Usually, the staff is great - just chat them up about the qualities of various IPAs of the moment and see if you don't discover something new.

This is the best place in AZ for beer, they always have a good rotating selection of beers, 40 something taps.
The atmosphere is good, the place is decorated with brewery shirts.
Their only limitation seems to be those that do not distribute to AZ, they currently have an email campaign going to get Pliny in AZ. I was most surprised when they had a keg of Dissident.
Their pizza is good, a giant slice for ~$5.
I had read that they are working to get permits for on premise brewing and thus growler fills, this would put them among the best of the best.

Visited Thursday 3/3/2011 with the Ratebeer crowd in the early afternoon.

The place is a decent size with what seems like a bar area and a dining area although it seemed like we could have ordered food in the bar area. They have a whole row of taps to choose from and you'll find something you like no matter who you are. I spotted half a dozen AZ made beers, some popular stuff like Abyss and Hopsickle, and some oddball stuff from random breweries.

They offer 5oz glasses, which is great for the tickers or for those who just want to try something before they commit to a full glass (still ticking).

You can buy pizza by the slice and put just about anything on it. Its actually a more like a personal pizza; it's a giant slice. $5 for the slice plus another $.75 per topping.

Since we were there in the middle of a work day it wasn't overly crowded and the staff was able to attend to us easily. They were all very nice and helpful in answering questions and pour beer.

Would definitely return if ever in Tuscon again.

1702 is the best beer bar in the state (sorry Papago). I think their variety changes a lot more than other places. It's a very cool places with a great atmosphere - I like that they've added seating in the second room. A few TVs to keep an eye on games if needed. Beers are served in correct glasses and are always top notch. They know their beer there and it shows. Sometimes it can take a little while to flag someone down to order more, so that is my only deduction here.

The selection is phenomenal. I love that they update their taplist online a lot too. They always get the big new releases and a lot of rarer stuff. Food is great as well - I really enjoy their pizza, bread and wings.

Prices are very reasonable for all beers. Unfortuantely I'm only down in Tucson once a month or so and they aren't open on Sundays (one of the days I'm usually there)

I usually make it to 1702 when I was in town for spring training. There isn't a ton of top end beer places in the desert, but this does stick out as an oasis of high quality suds. Anyway, the selection is always quite impressive. You can see that on their website. They seem to do a good job rotating the selection as well as keeping them tapped.

The food is quite good. The taste is average, but the portion size is gigantic. The calzone I got here was as long as my forearm, and as thick as my calf. They did go a bit overboard with the ricotta cheese, and a bit underboard with the fillings, but it was still good.

Where they have problems can be service. Sometimes you get someone who gives a crap about you, but often times you can be ignored. It should never take 15 minutes before you are greeted after sitting down. plus, once I had a beer half done almost taken away by some grumpy old guy who was muttered some stuff. he seemed friendly with the 4 or 5 employees/regulars who were there, but he seemed to hate us, To be honest, i actually felt unwelcome here. It was an odd feeling. Oh well, I like the food, and love the beer, so I guess I can put up with it.

A-- kind of run down and dive like. Very small bar.

Q-- Excellent selection of beers on tap and in bottle. Before moving to Australia, this was my next place to hang out after Old Chicago, up the street on Campbell. Last time I was there they had Odell Bourbon Barrel Stout on tap.

S-- Slow and poor. Also not knowledgeable. Biggest drawback of the place. Generally UA students who do not give a crap.

S-- Great selection of beer and a lot of stuff you generally do not see around Tucson. Only Plaza has a better collection of hard to find beers.

F-- Pizza. NY style and workable.

V-- After Plaza the best selection of stuff in town. Old Chicago gives ten times better service but the prices of beers there are on the nice side. Food is well priced. Only real issue I had was it was closed on Sundays and the lack of a decent staff.

This place not only has some of the most eclectic, rare varieties of draft and bottled beer; the food is phenomenal. For example, I am a vegetarian and I came with two gentlemen who are not, however, to cater to me, they ordered the veggie pizza. AND they actually enjoyed it. I think any place that can please a carnivore with it's herbivore version of handtossed deliciousness is an A in my book!

I also love the tables; they have a lable from almost every beer I have ever heard of embedded in acrylic right there on display for you to eat on. And the brewery T-shrts framed on the wall give it just another peak in to the creative, wild, passionate minds of the owners. All around, great experience! Something for everyone.

The sign above the door read "1702 - it's the address". Yep, that would be 1702 Speedway. They had a long, wide window front with the entry on the far right. High tables and swiveling bucket chairs lined the windows and the center of the bar area. The wood, inverted "S"-shaped bar was straight ahead from the door with a two-door cooler and the bank of taps along the back wall. The kitchen was left of the cooler and the smells of baking pizzas was sumptuous. A blackboard to the far left of the bar area and right of an archway leading to the restaurant area listed their available beers. Blackboard, smackboard! I've got mine peepers. Over in the restaurant area, it was all booth seating with vintage rock posters on the walls. For the easily bored, a bunch of board games with an emphasis on Trivial Pursuit were available to the far left of the bar.

Beers: 47 bottles, including both Westmalles; all three Rochforts; all three St. Bernardus; plus a lot of DFH and then a wide selection of domestic micros and quality imports.

Taps - 50 taps on a 75 % N2/25 % CO2 delivery system.

Came here for a couple pints after enjoying a little bit of chicken tikka masala from Kebabeque, I can't stop eating that stuff its so addicting. I liked the atmosphere, it was definitely geared toward the craft brew crowd with lots of posters and memorabilia from different craft breweries. Quality was great, the beers on tap we tried were very fresh. Service was outstanding, our waitress was super friendly and speedy and helpful. Selection was great, it was difficult to pick a beer from such a huge list of taps! Most pints ranged from $4-6 which was pretty reasonable, they had Old Crustacean for $6 which is the best price I've seen anywhere for that stuff.

BA beerfly strikes again. I head to a city on business and show my colleagues their best local option for quality beer. I brought our local manager to 1702 and he never really heard of it. About 50 taps and another 30 or so in the bottle.
Decent selection. Nothing overwhelming, but you can find a decent beer. Service was spotty. First waitress left (shift over) and the new person on never checked on us and we had to flag her down. Important to note that the place was not busy at all. Was not due to big crowd.

They were generous with their samples. If this was in my hometown it wouldn't hit my top 5, but for Tucson, it wasn't half bad.
Pizza looked great but we didn't eat any.

I'll go again if in town.

I was recently in Tucson to visit some family, and stopped by 1702 on a whim. I'd looked for beer bars in the city here on BA, and I'm so glad I made the trip down Speedway.

This is a fantastic beer bar - one of the best I've been to. Austin (the owner) was really hospitable. I sampled the Ola Dubh 30, the Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre, and the Hop Head Red. All delicious. So was the pizza.

I run a beer bar myself and I have to say I was really impressed with the selection and Austin's enthusiasm. Great place - I'll definitely stop in again when in Tucson.

I always loved this place when it was Eric's Ice Cream...but now that it's 1702, I love it a lot more.

Atmosphere was a bit surprising actually...I expected to see a ton of college students there (Wednesday night), but it was almost all families. I suppose that's probably a reflection on the beer drinking habits of most college students than anything else. However, the crowd was good, and considering there was a UA basketball game going on, that's pretty impressive. Didn't see him yesterday, but in the past (when it was still Eric's Ice Cream), Eric was always walking around, talking with customers, joking around, and overall being a great guy.

I think the building itself is pretty nice...fairly spartan decorum with beer signs and tap handles adorning the walls...a very open front room and then a back area with booths. I can imagine that on weekends there might be a bit of a wait to get a table. Service was good. Very prompt, and they offered good suggestions. When I ordered a Dale's Pale Ale, they said they were out, but found a good alternative for me. My biggest (and really only) complaint was the location of the tap list...up on the wall behind the table we were sitting at. I'm fine with putting the tap list on the wall, but I'd rather it be printed out so you aren't always having to turn around and look at the menu. Or appear to be staring at the people sitting at the table in front of the menu. I know it's more a pain in the ass to have to do that, especially when you have rotating taps...but lots of places do it and seem to manage.

Selection is fantastic. I would say as far as number and quality, it rivals some of the really good places in LA that I've been to. I would guess there were at least 40 brews on tap, and all of good quality. Lots of California brewers, notably Port/Lost Abbey and Green Flash. A few Arizona breweries were represented, as well as some from Colorado (Great Divide, Avery, New Belgium, Left Hand, Oskar Blues). They had 3 DFH brews, some stuff from Flying Dog, some German and Belgian stuff...and they had Ola Dubh 30 on top as well. Seems like they get some rare stuff once in a while...they had Stone RIS '05 yesterday, along with the Ola Dubh and NB Eric's Ale (although it seems that's been pretty well distrubuted). I had a Port Shark Attack, NB Eric's Ale, and then (I think) a Great Divide Fresh Hop Pale (not really sure, I ordered Dale's and Hop Trip, but they were out of both and I think this is what I ended up with). This is by far the best place in Tucson, and I would say, selection wise, right up there with almost any other place I've been on the West Coast.

Food is pretty basic (from a selection standpoint). Typical beer place appetizers, salads, pizza and calzones. I had a calzone which was really really good. Pizza slices were big, thin crust, and looked pretty tasty.

Prices were typical for Arizona. To me, being from LA, everything seems really cheap. Pints were 4-5 bucks, pizza slices were 5 bucks, calzones were 8 bucks plus a dollar for each extra topping. I think in all with a 1 topping calzone and three beers, I ended up spending only 25 bucks.

Super super place. I've also noticed they do themed nights and they just had a DFH Dinner which was before I came to town for my vacation sadly. If you are every in Tucson, you absolutely cannot miss going to this place.

1702 is easily the best beer location in Tucson, and probably Arizona. It's only rival would be Papago in Scottsdale. It has been awhile ( a month) since I have been there, but last time I was there they had a least 35 "craft brew" taps. Taps you won't find anywhere else in Tucson. Beers ranging from my favorite Green Flash west coast IPA to North Coast Old Rasputin. Most of the taps are from the western US, which is understandable considering out distributors, but nonetheless an excellent place to come and have beer. The food is decent, but who cares with such a great selection of beer.

In Tucson you will generally find $5+ per pint Guinness and a dearth of good craft beer in restaurants. Not so at 1702 whose selection is remarkable, both in bottles and on tap. 1702 is a shining example of what can be done with a little effort and forethought, while respecting the customer, which is quickly becoming a lost art in bars across America.

The staff are friendly, and equally importantly, they know beer. I know that doesn't sound like much, but as any fan knows, go to a place where the staff doesn't and you will know why it is important. The staff at 1702 works very hard at perfecting this beer Paradise in the desert we call home. Changing the 40+ names of craft and import beers draft on the chalkboard of the beers on tap is a chore, and they stay on top of it to provide the most up to date list possible. This place is an American craft brew heaven for us, and really should be a destination for all beer lovers visiting Tucson. They also have a good selection of Belgians and imports, and the prices won't be outrageous like they are elsewhere.

The food is fantastic: huge slices of pizza, ENORMOUS salads (no joke, a full platter fit for two!), and fresh soups with season specific ingredients. The chef's also experiment with the use of hops as INGREDIENTS in the food! Amazing.

It can get busy, but who doesn't see that as a good sign? Overall impression: Visit 1702.

The most craft beers you will find on tap in Southern Arizona, rivaling many places in Phoenix in quality.

40+ taps of the best of the best craft beers around, including:
season specials (even ones that arent around anymore!) from favorites like Stone (10th & 11th and I hear 12th is coming!) and Dogfishhead (120 min, Red & White, Black & Blue)
rare import stuff like Duchesse du Burgogne, Rodenbach.
Not a single bad tap.

Service is very good, the owners Austin and Eric are awesome friendly people. Austin is one of the most beer knowledgeable people I know, and he has done a good job educating the rest of his staff.

The food is excellent, arguably the best pizza you can get in Tucson. Huge slices with lots of delicious toppings. Outstanding wings with house made delicious sauces. Oustanding fresh soup made from scratch by Eric. Giant delicious salads for the veggie people.

The atmosphere is a really laid back fun place, beer plaques everywhere, and a new really awesome table that is made with hundreds of beer labels under laquer. A single flatscreen TV sits in the corner in the event you are there on game night.

This place has become quite popular, so during busy dining times it can get a little packed, but there is generally a table or some seats at the bar open.

This place is easily the best place in Tucson to get a beer.
