This place ROOOOOCKS. This is definitely the #1 desitination in Tucson; too bad it took me a couple visits to figure that out. Itís kinda out of the way and in a really weird spot, but definitely go.

WOW! This is my kinda place! You order your beer and food from the bar and then the waitress has to find you , Via a number on a stick that they give you! Its a big warehouse like Barrio and in the same hood. a little difficult to find but NOT impossible and well worth it! Take advantage of the taxi service and drink heartily! The beer is superb and all Nimbus! You will have to go back a few time so you can enjoy everything there is on the menu. Service was great! Donít eat outside if you donít want to share your food with the community of flies that are out there. Like I said, my kinda place!

Visited Nimbus from sunny Ca. to meet big Jim (owner) and talk business. Place is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. Inside this old industrial building is wall to wall entertainment, from the old school bottling machine, (still used today for bottle distro) at the far end of the building, to the awesome artsy feel throughout. The selection of beers at the time of my visit was of course all Nimbus and boosted a very delicious smoked porter, a fabulous belgian strong, Nimbusís kick-ass pale on nitro, and the rest of the insane house brews from headbrewer Scott. Old monkeyshine will ALWAYS be one of my favorite beers, the 8.2abv is masked completely in this roasted malt bomb, and the brown ale is always awesome as well. I have heard from other visitors that thereís usually great live music from a miriad of different groups and diverse musical tastes. Big Jim is a riot, super nice guy, incredible artist, (thatís all his artwork on the beer labels and all the teeís

Nimbus is the brewpub where the locals hang out. Thunder Canyon on the North End of town is more of a Yuppie place. Gentle Bens is the College Hangout and Nimbus is where the locals go. The casual tourist wonít find this place. It located smack in the middle of an industrial area and if you donít know the place is there you will not just happen by this place. They remodeled a couple of years ago and the old ratty couches and lawn furniture is gone, being replaced by nice wooden tables and chairs. I sort of miss the old ratty stuff, but the upgrade is nice. They have live music 3 or 4 nights a week. One of the nights I was there, there was a Euchre tournament going on and the place was pretty quite. The Friday after work crowd was much noisier and the place was a little busier. Still all in all it is a very relaxed place to have a beer. The beer selection is good. They serve 8 beers in the sampler and pints are $3.50. Nimbus has been voted the Best place for a beer in Tucson for like 5 years in a row (Tucson Weekly). Menu is Burgers and sandwiches. Well worth seeking out if your in Tucson.

A large, welcoming place, service was outstanding, food was well above average, sadly the beers didnít live up to the standard. Beers were weak to average, but they DO have guest taps, with beers from Bells, Firestone Walker, and others available. I had the pulled pork sandwich, which was great, served with their "haystack onions". The fried bologna sandwich also seemed to be an excellent choice.

Itís a little hard to find, but well worth it. The biggest and probably the best brewery in Tucson. Good selection of good beer. The food is great at a reasonable price. The bar and dining area is in a high ceiling warehouse along with the brewery. So it gets a little cool in there in the winter. Live music sometimes on the weekends. A must when in Tucson.

Best local brewpub from an overall beer perspective. No frills, but it sure is nicer looking than it used to be. Used to be just old couches and a small bar. Now at least it is presentable and I can take the family if I so choose. Great food, good beer. Just wish they went a little more exciting with the styles. Always a good stop if you can find it.
