Its just basically a small, air-conditioned room separated from the brewery itself. They have about 7 or 8 tables, the bar, and a bar against the wall. The employees are helpful and awesome, the brewery tour is cool (even though its just a small one room warehouse) and they offer all of their current beers on tap. The option for flights to try them all is great and the glassware is perfect. They actually serve beer in something besides pint glasses, which seems to be rare. I thought it seemed like a cool place to go and hang out to get a few beers with friends.

Apparently they also have food trucks come by a few days a week, but I haven't been there for the food yet. (676 characters)

Alonside Fate, probably my favorite brewery in AZ, and their tasting room stands up to their brewing prowess. Expansive tap list with a huge variety of selections -- on our latest trip, they had a BA barleywine, BA stout, tequila-BA saison, rye-barrel aged porter, plus a huge variety of brews, from an English dark mild, to witbier, to double IPA, and so on. And, frankly, most of those styles were on point. No food, and a random industrial location, but inside the vibe is cool, modern, and a fine setting for settling in with some damn good beer. (550 characters)

This was stop #5 along a pub crawl for my wife and I and two friends in the greater Tucson area. The pub is located in a newer industrial area in a multi-suite building. The entrance to the brewery is on the rear side of the building. Contrary to a tasting room description in a previous review, this taproom is new and is spacious. It really doesn't have a whole lot of character being a large, partitioned space with a high ceiling, a long bar and long community tables, but this is an industrial building. Several large windows do allow a nice view of the brewing equipment and the barrel room, so there is some ambiance here.

But the beer here is what is the crowning glory of the experience. Being on a pub crawl, we couldn't try as many beers as what we would have liked, so we had a sampler glass of only four of them. We chose three of the beers (Dragoon IPA, Lazarus, and Super Stronghold) because of our appreciation for the styles, and the fourth (Fumacabra) was chosen out of curiosity because we've never had a mesquite-smoked bock (or any mesquite-smoked beer, for that matter). The IPA and Super Stonghold were probably the best two beers that we experienced during our week-long trip, so we rated them at a B+ grade. Lazarus, in spite of its high hype, was a let-down. It became cloyingly sweet at 13.25 ABV as it warmed up, but was a very good beer when it was cold. Not having any comparison for a beer similar to Fumacabra, it was difficult to give it a rating. Its taste lived up to its description, so that's about all I can say for it.

We enjoyed this place and the beers enough that we had hoped to make a return trip before out vacation ended, but sadly, we didn't find the time. However, this pub will be at the top of our list if we ever return to Tucson. (1,784 characters)

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. (442 characters)
