Second time visiting Dragoon this past weekend. All the beers were clean and the mens urinal is really high up on the wall, which is perfect for tall guys like myself. No flush either as it's one of those water saving units.

I really liked the Munich Dunkel and the American Mild. Fun place with solid beers and the bartenders are pretty cool. The woman was a bit gloomy, but they say that's just how she rolls.

I will go back for sure.

In terms of brew, it's probably currently the best of the ever-expanding circuit of breweries in Tucson. Definitely has the most mature offerings, which is odd in that it's a relative newcomer. It's a commercial brewery with an attached office space they serve tastings in, so the atmo is about as bad as possible (think: you're still in your cubicle). I was there the day they opened to the public, and back then they let you drink in the warehouse brewing area, and that was a lot better. Probs illegal tho. No food, and beer selection at the brewery at any one time is limited, but they do have a decent range of offerings throughout the year. Their IPA deserves its cred as the best of the locals in Tucson, and probably Arizona. It's not world-beating, but it's absolutely consistent at several notches above solid.

Editing my review to note that there are often food trucks outside, particularly during happy hour times, and Tucson's burgeoning food truck scene is a pretty good one.

First off, the Dragoon IPA is as good as the reviews on Beer Advocate led me to believe, which is to say they're a close second to La Cumbre's Elevated IPA for best IPA in the southwest.

Second, every other beer in here was either outstanding or so adventurous as to be deserving of praise. The Imperial Stout here was superb--- rich and malty, a great complex profile and was not dominated by alcohol like many ISes. The double IPA was, interestingly enough, a shadow of the IPA but still good. The Berlinerweiss was intensely tart, yet light and refreshing. The dark session beer had great roasted malt nose and flavor and did great justice to the name session.

Oh, and they had the IPA on cask when I arrived and it was mind-blowing.

Add to this a cool staff that are laid-back and not the least bit pretentious, plus very reasonable prices of $5-6 a beer and $7 for a flight and this place would easily be my go-to brewery if I lived in Tucson.

The only drawback is that it is a bit of a journey to get to and if the place every really gets popular they do not have the space to accommodate folks, but I'm sure they'll cross that bridge when they get to it.
