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.

Best local beers in Tucson. Food was quite good as well. T-shirts and other cool products for sale at location. Warehouse location in a sketchy area. Service wasní so great, and cleanliness is questionable. It has a dive feel to it, not a traditional brewpub at all.

Nimbus was packed at 5 p.m. on the Friday night I visited, and itís a pretty big place too. My biggest complaint was that the beers were way overpriced. The patio area for smokers was nice, and the service was generally quick, if maybe a little unfriendly at times. The nitrogen oatmeal stout was a big thumbs up. And, as I usually do at upscale places, I opted not to even ask about food for fear of spending too much.

Loved all the beers on tap. Also have 6 packs, kegs, and growlers to go. Worth the trip!!! Great local microbrewery. Help preserve a great drinking hole!!!

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.

I woke up with a stomache ache this morning (not a hangover!) -- a sure sign Iíd been drinking some Nimbus beer. The family went down to the brewery last night for burgers and beer. I had the sampler, 4-oz. glasses of all eight brews. Well, Amber Ale was out, so I got an extra Oatmeal Stout. I wish I could rave about Nimbus, but all the beers are too hoppy and harsh, sharp-edged going down. Even the lightweight 3.5 ABV blonde had no smoothness to it. On the way out I learned they had the Amber Ale in six packs and since Iíd missed it on the sampler, I grabbed onoe six pack. I made it through two, but the four remaining beers will probably make it to the back of my ífridge and sit there for a long, long time to come. Hey, the burgers were awesome, even if there was no service (you had to go up and order dinner from the one bartender, who was very friendly and helpful). If you like Pepto-Bismol as a chaser, then Nimbus may be for you. I for one donít like the harsh taste of ALL of Nimbusís beers. I hate to do it to the largest local microbrew, but THUMBS DOWN!

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.

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.

I here yesterday (oct 30) and i must say i was very impressed. The beer was great and the food was excellent. It didnít hurt that they have a very cute bartender ;) The beer sampler consisted of 8 beers all in 4oz glasses. Really laid back atmosphere. The live band last night played a cover of Traffic-low spark of high healed boys" which I have never herd a band do before.
