A classy beer bar/restaurant with a hip-hop DJ and good homemade ice-cream??? Yes, this is the Hub. Brick walled interior, not quite sure to make of the rope pulleys along one wall.

I wanted to wander off the beaten path for a good beer spot while in Tucson and found this place. Glad I did.

Converted old factory of some sort smack dab in the middle of the Old Pueblo, right next to the Congress Hotel if you want to catch a band later.

30 or so taps of good craft beer. Liked the emphasis on AZ/CA beers. All served at proper temps and decent pour sizes (PINTS!!!!)

Staff was a bit slow and hipster, but so is the state of places with craft beer nowadays. Other positives of the Hub overcame this minor annoyance.

Had a tasty sliced prime rib sammich with fries. After, sauntered over to the ice cream bar...bourbon brittle crunch???? Yes please.
Delish.

Definitely worth a visit to escape the tired, pretentious beer bars so prevalent nowadays. Love the concept.

The food here is incredibly good for lunch, breakfast, and dinner. Their ice cream menu is one of the best in tucson. And their beer menu is also pretty nice. I would recommend this place more for the food than the beer, but either way give it a try.

Great local craft beer selection in a beautifully furnished building. The food was incredibly good and fairly well priced. I will definitely be back. After dinner the wife and I saw 3 Days Grace play just across the street.

Super close to the Rialto so we went before a show on a Sunday night. 25 minute wait for a table so we opted to sit and eat at the bar. Some impressive choices and variety on draft, one rotating being Ballast Point Big Eye. Others on the permanent menu being Torpedo, Piraat, Dale's Pale Ale, Modus Hoperandi, and a couple AZ brews from Thunder Canyon and San Tan. Started with a cheese sampler which was okay (could've used more variety and perhaps a description of each one) We split a rotisserie roasted half chicken with fries and mac & cheese which were all awesome. The ice cream they make was delicious too with flavors like Tres Leches, Do-Si-Do, and mexican wedding cake, (I need the recipe for Bourbon Almond Butter, apparently made with a pint of bourbon)
