My favorite brewery in Tucson! Great selection and good quality hazies! Parking is a bit of an issue, but worth it once you make it inside. Good customer service and great vibe!

Fairly small tap room in brewery/ downtown Tucson. Lively with a nice crowd on a Sunday night. Mix of UA students and others. Inside is all brick and wood; great little bar with about 10 seats. Plenty of tables. No food except $5 high end popcorn and $6 chips/ salsa. Meh. Beer selection varied and good ranging from Pale Ale to Imp Stout; Hef and lager; IPAs, etc.
People are friendly and good and very helpful with tastings, etc. Vinnie was particularly friendly and helpful... even while closing up.

What a fantastic little brewery in downtown Tucson. Walkable to just about anything and anywhere. No food other than popcorn and some light crunch snack options, but again... right near most restaurants.
Vibe is great, open, woodsy, and relaxed like much of Tucson. Quality of the beer is TOP NOTCH especially if you like the new style of IPA (not see through) although they did have a very solid Pacific NW IPA that was clear-ish.
Good breakfast stout, pastry stout, great dark Czech lager, on and on...
Selection is their stuff mainly, no other drinks available really but what a great little place. Maybe the best beer in Arizona?

Small place in the heart of downtown. Bar seat 8, with a dozen tables filling the room. 12 beers on tap, the one I had was excellent. Friendly service. Crowler machine.

Some of the best IPA's in Arizona. Specializing in floral, juicy, and hazy IPAs. However, notoriously inflexible with limited distribution to Tucson only and no effort to market to Phoenix. If you are in Tucson definitely worth a visit, but before you purchase any cans ask how long they have been released for.

Easily the best local beer I've had in Tucson. IPA, APA, barleywine, whatever, it's all far above average.

Edit: despite how incredible their beer, the 5-6 times I’ve been here I have always had awful service. They are always rude and/or unfriendly. I originally put my service rating at 3 and have slowly been lowering it every time I’ve gone there. I don’t like giving breweries bad ratings for anything, but by this point I’ve had enough with the service from here.

Pueblo Vida Brewing Company is a great brewery from the beers to the decor to the staff. When we went in we were greeted and when the bartender was finished with her customer she came right over, answered any questions we had, and quickly poured our flights. The decor is rustic wood reminiscent of a cabin in the mountains and encourages a social atmosphere with its ample seating either at the bar or at the couple of long table seats as well as a few 2 and 4 top tables. The beer was outstanding. They had many unfiltered hoppy beers on tap that offered a beer drinking experience that I hadn't had since my trip to Vermont in the fall. They have growler fills and will offer at least one canned beer to go in 16 oz. 4 packs. If you are ever in our even remotely near Tuscon it is worth the trip.

Spectacular brewery in Tucson. You can smell the hops when you enter, and the selection is impressive for a small place. Service is beyond excellent with extremely knowledgeable staff.

If you are in Tucson this place is a can't miss stop. Variety of East and West Coast style IPA's along with the areas best Hefe and a great stout. Friendly staff is happy to walk newbies through a flight but also can talk the ins and outs of all the beers to experienced topers.

This was stop #6 along a pub crawl for my wife and I and two friends in the greater Tucson area. The pub is new and the word has not spread very far yet about how good their beers are, but take it from me that this place is worthy of a visit. The pub is located in a storefront setting along the edge of downtown Tucson, and the taproom is small, but the growing awareness of the quality of the beers has generated a demand for them that has created a shortage of people space in the pub. (It's my understanding that they are going to take over the adjacent storefront, so that will help.) The brewing equipment was visible to the rear of the taproom, and the smallness of space made it cozy here (but noisy).

We ordered a sampler flight of 5 of the beers (6 were on tap, but we're not hefe fans so we skipped it), and enjoyed them all. Each was brewed correctly to style with a plus factor to each of them so that our scored ranged from a C+ to a B grade. (The Mic Drop DIPA was the notable one.)

Although no food is offered, the place is food friendly, so feel free to being in your own. We liked this place, and would return if we're ever in the area again. (Of special note: the beer menu board was noted with the date that the tap lines were last cleaned.... a nice touch.)
