Caytinator  (108) Tucson, Arizona | April 8, 2013
Cool location, out of the way, but pretty busy. Seemed rather hip & trendy. Thereís an interesting story here - they are owned by and brew the beer for "Gentle Benís" a much older Tucson brewery. The service was fine, but a little slow. The selection was pretty good, most of the Gentle Benís lineup was present and accounted for. I usually hate breweries that charge $8 for a 10oz draft of potent beers, but Iíll make an exception in this case. The food I had was good.

Iíve always met cool people here. The beers are rather lackluster and "true to style" in the worst sense of the term. Nothing here will offend (except the occasional "coffee porter" that tastes of Folgerís cans), nor will it delight. Still, the Porter is usually drinkable and the staff are usually lovely girls, so one has to be a jerk to dismiss the place, and I donít.

This place defines what I picture when I think about a brewpub. Itís a pretty big facility nestled by the railroad tracks. Thereís a large bar in the middle, pool tables and other game tables off to the side. The menu is basically standard brewpub offerings with a Southwest slant...it is Tucson after all. The housemade beers were generally solid, though not great. Lots of "regulars" hanging out at the bar. Not overly unique, just a cool local brewery.

Visited 3/3/2011 during RBWG.

The place is a large building with tin siding next to a set of train tracks. Very open on the inside with lots of tables and places to sit.

Service was alright. We had one server for 15 or so of us. The place only had enough sample glasses for 3 full sampler sets.

They had 12 taps going. Most werenít noteworthy and a couple were enjoyable.

I didnt eat anything as I was already full from the giant burger that I had at Nimbus. Prices were reasonable.

In a warehouse on a side street. Stopped in to pick up a growler and a pint. Decent stuff on tap, tried the barrel aged scotch ale, which was decent. Had a Sonoran Dog that was decadent. Service was prompt and polite. Would definitely go back.

A chill brewpub near UofA. They are located right near a railroad (which apparently is involved with beer pricing - you get a discount if you order beer when the train is going by. The locals and bartenders, of course, know this and time their ordering appropriately). There are a large number of taps, with a couple less-typical styles (ie coffee porter, scotch ale). All of the beers I tried were pretty good. I got a salad as well, which was tasty. It was not too crowded when I was there (Monday afternoon) but it is a smallish place, so I imagine it can fill quickly. There is a long shuffleboard table, but you have to pay to play. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Barrio. The beer is good and itís probably the best of the Tuscon brewpubs. Worth a stop.

I last visited Barrio on a Tuesday night, and the place still got decent business. Fortunately, Barrio has enough space (with a big wrap-around bar) that the crowd isnít really a problem. It can get a bit noisy, but the quality of the food and service can compensate for that. Barrioís beers arenít terribly expensive, but be ready to drop $20-25 if you want to get a bite and a slight buzz.

Large, open restraunt/bar with a bit of a little bit of a sportsbar feel too it. Staff are friendly and good variety of beer selection. Sandwiches are good.

in terms of brewpubs, this place is not your typical kind of atmosphere. however, with that said, the beer here is not too good. very hard to find as well-i even got lost when convoying with a group of people! crazy! i

neat location in an industrial side of town. Food and beer is average but there are the one or two standout beers of the bunch. Value and service has always been fair to good on all of my visits. This place serves the same beers as Gentle Benís on University.
