Third stop of the night; a short walk from Ten Fifty Five, honestly a bit hard to find in the dark; we thought it was a bit closer than it turned out to be, but eventually honed in on the place. After the previous tiny taprooms this place was somewhat of a surprise with a kitchen, large dining area, large bar, pool tables and the like. Southwest menu featured. Order at the bar. Super friendly and helpful service. I ordered a flight, which was everything they poured minus the cask pour, which turned out to be a BA stout. When I asked about it he promptly brought out samples for all of us. Food was good, beer varied a lot but had its moments. Fun place and well worth the visit.
Out at the end of an industrial park area, next to train tracks with frequently passing trains, which can be neat if you’re into that things. Excellent patio for its beautiful mountain view. An employee briefly smoke next to the patio. Really cool brewpub interior. Interesting décor. Big and comfortable. Our service wasn’t bad, but not great either. Taps were the same 6 beers you can get at any liquor store in AZ, plus 1 special that wasn’t part of the sampler. Food was very good. Fair prices.
Perhaps the worst service I have ever had. When I asked if they had anything special on tap, the bartender took her hand, pointed at the tap handles and walked away without a word. When she finally returned, I asked of they had a Sampler tray. She made some lame excuse about not having enough glasses.
Reserved a table on a Sunday afternoon for myself and some friends, had pretty good time! It was pretty dead, but the bartender was a nice server. The selection is OK, they seemed to have a lot of their beers available on tap, didn’t notice any guest taps. Food was good, I liked the wings and burgers. Value was good. Lots of room to party.
Nimbus is a bit mediocre, and probably my least favorite of the breweries in Tucson. They do have good guest taps, but charge quite a bit more for the guest beers.
For much better beer, I recommend Barrio or Dragoon. For better beer and great food, I recommend Thunder Canyon.
Stopped in on a Saturday night to find a big crowd. Many were there for the band. I had the sampler and there was not a loser to be found. All were above average and nice takes on classic versions. The Old Monkeyshines was not classic but was wild and tasty. It came in at 9 % ABV but everything else was more sessionable including a 3.5 offering. Our food was exceptionally good. Their burgers are always rated top in town and my wife liked hers. I had their Cuban and enjoyed it. The place is kind of by itself with no other night life around and you have to look for it. I would recommend Nimbus to anyone. Their beers were all rock solid and things were reasonably priced.
Stopped by during a day trip to Tucson. Pretty good ambiance in an industrial district. You certainly won’t stumble upon this place. Had a sampler of eight of their beers plus one other from a different brewery. Beer is slightly above average some good selections but not blown away. Food is so-so. Worth a stop if in the area.
