Visited 3/3/2011 with the Ratebeer Winter Gathering.

The place is located in a busy shopping center and has lots of tables. The place is very open and comfortable.

The beer is all at least decent and covers a wide range of styles. Of course they have the standard styles (cream, hefe, amber, pale), a fruit beer, and even a barrel aged beer (imperial porter).

There was one server for the whole lot of us (15 or so) and she was new and didnt know much about the beer. However she tried and when she didnt have an answer she went to find out. She even put up with the losers that are the beer geeks.

The food was pretty good albeit a bit over priced. Might stop back for dinner and a sample of beer or two.

Eh ... the all-time average American brewpub. The impressive breweriana collection is its one draw. Otherwise, go to Nimbus instead.

Thereís a limit to how high you can rate a brewpub at a mall. It gives Thunder Canyon an overly commercial vibe that they have to fight to overcome. They had some solid beers, especially the barrel and brown ale and the orange fruit beer. The food was substantial in portion but not enjoyable to eat. As a brewpub itís solid but not spectacular.

We visited this place on 26.12.2013. Bar is located in a huge hall, more a sports bar feeling than beer atmosphere. Many tables scattered around, but also comfortable sofas and couches. Beers are watery and below average. We had an Amber and an IPA. Have not seen the brewery. Would not come here for the beers.

A decent brewpub in Tuscon. As mentioned, it is located in a strip mall so it has a different feel to it. There is a square bar (well half a square) and a lot of restaurant space, plus outdoor seating. There was a decent sized tap list, probably 7-8 offerings (including a cask and rotating Belgian). The beers were decent to good. The food is ok. I split a chicken and cheese dip (I forget the exact name) and it was just ok. Prices were on the slightly higher side. Every time a patron tips in cash, the bartender rings a bell (Iím not sure why). Overall, it is an ok spot to try some new beer.

not a bad place, but not great. if you have the time, maybe worth a stop, even though its a bit off the highway. very attractive watresses though (dont i say that about every place? lol!). Beer is hit/miss but mostly average. nothing will blow you away. food is decent but has a stiff mall brewpub kind of feel (since it is in a mall!)

Finally made the pilgrimage for the release of BA Warhead. The place is in a mall area and roughly approximates a beer-oriented Applebees. Very casual ambiance and decent food. Great selection of their beers on tap. Friendly service.

Stopped in aroun 3 pm for a few flights - which are reasonably priced. The waitress brought the 5 we ordered with no identification, which posed a bit of a challenge. Two of the beers tasted a bit skunked. Hmmmm.
