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.

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.

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.
