This is my favorite beer place in Tucson. 20 taps + 1 cask and there's always something interesting. The bottle shop is extremely well-curated. The space is beautiful and nice to hang out in for a while. They have fun events. No food, but there is usually a food truck, and when there isn't you can order food in from nearby places.

In short, the 2nd best place to have a brew in Tucson, right behind 1702. It's got a really nice, more polished atmosphere than 1702 (if a bit less homey), good service, an awesome bottle shop, and consistently good choices on their 20 rotating taps. The only thing that rates 2nd really is the fact that 1702 has twice as many taps...and has firmly rooted itself into the hearts of Tucson beer drinkers for all the right reasons. If Tap & Bottle continues down the same path, it will only grow from its already enormous popularity.
PS No food here, so eat first..because you may want to stay a while.

I loved this place in so many ways.
- the high ceilings
-the well-lit space
- the spaciousness
- the bottle shop/bar concept, which New Mexico so desperately needs (Tap and Bottle owners, if you're listening, open one of these in Albuquerque. I'd quit my job to work for a place this great.)
-the impeccable selection
I'll deviate from my bullets to really comment on the selection. It was superb. There's a cask option, which is always a nice touch and it was cool that it was a beer, Jalapeno Cherry Bomb IPA from Dragoon, that not even the brewery had on tap when I was there the day before. The rest of the tap selection was a good mix of styles and local (Huss, Four Peaks, etc.) and national craft options. They even had a gose! Yep, goses aren't easy to find, but Tap and Bottle had a great representation of this German style courtesy of Destihl. I recommend it if it's on tap.
Then there's the obscene bottle selection. Woosa! So many bottles to choose from. The selection here was better than Plaza Liquors! The beers were arranged by style and had many of the heavy-hitters of craft, Firestone Walker, Dogfish Head, Mikkeller, Tool, Sierra Nevada, Oskar Blues, and I could go on and on. The bartender was even so kind as to hip me to a great price on a Uinta beer, which I was able to get for $10 cheaper than it normally should cost. Gracias.
The pourers were also some friendly folks that seemed to know their beers and appreciate them. Also, the prices of pours were very reasonable, ranging from around $4-9.
If I lived in Tucson, I'd be in here everyday probably. I'll have to wait a few decades until I can make my millions and/or find investors to help make my dream of something similar happen in Albuquerque.
