OK, this is the marquis place in Tucson, so I was looking forward to my visit. Its way in the back of its warehouse space. A bit of a challenge to find in the dark, but follow the noise and the cars. Doing a pretty decent business an hour before close on a Tuesday. A dozen beers on tap; flights of four available, but everything can be purchased in individual sample sizes as well. Everything I tried was pretty solid or better. Service was great. Four packs of their IPA to go in 16 oz cans, plus growlers and crowlers. Really good "craft popcorn" for sale as well. Fun place and well worth your time.
Visited late Saturday afternoon. Big enough place. Busy but not crowded. Good vibe. Minimalistic design. Lots of white. Minimal décor. Friendly fast service. Large, varied tap list, at least 12 or 13. The beers we tried were very good. Seems like they’ve expanded the hours as well. I’ll update the info.. Overall the best brewery in Tucson right now.
Tiny place, a little hard to find. Bar was jumping, but mostly from people just coming in to fill their growlers. Seems like they do a lot of growler fills here. Service was friendly, beers were decent. IPA is solid. Worth a visit.
Went here on a busy friday evening. First impression: not enough seating. I know they’re working with limited space, but it felt pretty packed with only like 40 people in there. Not the nicest taproom I’ve been to, still "unpolished". That said, service was quick and friendly, value was very good, and the food truck parked outside served some awesome tacos. I’ll be back when they change up the taps.
only 3 beers on tap on my first visit but it seems they are just getting started. Chatted with the staff, all very friendly and very excited to start offering interesting beers in the future. Food trucks frequent the parking lot and the tasting room accommodates 30-40 people with nice views of the brewing operation. This place is making some of the better beer in town IMO and is worth the stop if your visiting Tucson.
If you didn’t know where you were going, you’d probably wouldn’t find the place. Some type of sign out on Grant Rd wouldn’t hurt. The tasting room is new, clean, and fairly big. The place was full when we arrived (3:30 on a Saturday). They had 4 different beers on tap. All very good. No food sold there, but there was a food truck parked outside the front door. They sold growlers and kegs. I look forward to good things to come from this brewery. They seem interested in taking things slow and putting out a quality product. Glad to have them in Tucson.
Time for an update. The Tucson homebrew club holds their meetings at Dragoon. So I was more than willing to attend at meeting or two. They now have 8 beers on tap. The last two times I’ve been there, they have had barrel beers on tap. Both were excellent. So I’m going to have to bump my score. At this point, I think Dragoon is the best brewery in Tucson.
Latest update. This place has really expanded over the last year. There was a huge crowd for their 3rd anniv. The amount of beers on tap has increased along with staff. Can’t wait til they start canning.
