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.

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
