Tap & bottle is an extremely nice bar and bottle shop in a not-too-busy part of Tucson. The selection of beers varies from local to international with some focus on sour beers. At each of my visits, the tap selection has been broad and interesting. All 20 taps are available as large pours, parts of flights and growlers. The bottle shop included in the bar has a well curated, broad selection and surprisingly competitive pricing on many items. Tap & bottle is worth a stop for this selection alone whenever I am in town. There is usually a food truck parked outside, the food of which can be consumed in the bar. For my taste, the bar tends to be too loud, especially on nights with live music or similar performances, which makes enjoying the beers hard. However, on quiet nights or in the early afternoons, this is by far my favorite spot in town.
Visited at noon on a Sunday. It was day 2 of a ísour beer festí they were having. Great selection overall, even for the non sour beers available and previous tap list online looked excellent. Bottles for purchase in the back. Nice, open airy place. As such, less seating but not all cramped. Pretty much wooden everything. Certainly the must visit beer bar in Tucson.
Such a great place! It can get a little crowded, and consequently service gets a little bottle-necked. It can get loud, and there is little sitting-room.
However, it is a friendly environment, and besides the excellent draft selection, there is a great bottle variety. A must-visit if youíre ever in Tucson!
Great place. Not too loud, well-curated rotating tap list and lots of good bottles. Service can be a bit slow if itís crowded, but friendly staff/owners make up for it. No food, but often a food truck out front. Best place to get a good beer in Tucson.
The appearance was very beer-centric all around, about 20 taps and in the back what appeared to be properly refrigerated beers in bottles and there were some cans as well. They also had some wine.
The quality was very good as I had several brews yesterday and I noticed every time that each bartender inspected each piece of glassware and did a quick rinse before pouring any beer in any glass.
For the Saturday afternoon that I was there, the service was very good. Even though, I had to stand in line a couple times, I didnít have to wait long at all and the locals were super easy to talk to.
The selection was mighty fine. The twenty taps I mentioned earlier were quite varied between local to regional. The furthest brewery away was Dogfishead as far as taps go. Bottles, well, pretty much all of the top notch breweries of the world as I did see some European brews.
The value seemed pretty good but Iím unfamiliar with the economic situation of the Tucson area.
Overall, I will definitely come back here and would recommend to anyone traveling to this part of AZ. Iíve realized with everywhere Iíve been that this place is pretty much the "model craft beer bar." Way to go!
A pretty nice place opened up by a nice couple. Very nice tap selection and a really good bottle selection available for take out. The Belgian bottle selection is kept separate and at proper temp. No food served by the bar, but both times Iíve been there, a food truck was out front (havenít tried any food). It was very busy the the couple times I stopped by. Parking can be hit or miss. Service was quick. I would put T & B in my top 5 places to hit while in Tucson.
