We've all heard of microbreweries, but nanobreweries are a concept you don't hear as much about. In fact, the up-and-coming Tucson operation Ten Fifty-Five Brewing is the first local operation we've seen that classify itself as a nanobrewery, describing its mission thusly via its Facebook page:
We want to make beer for beer drinkers like us; adventurous beer drinkers that are just as likely to try something new as they are an old favorite. We are committed to the idea of the local nano-brewer; a small batch company using fresh ingredients and open minds to make some great tasting brew. Look for us soon, we'll be looking for you.
Our four staples:
Sugar Skull Chocolate Milk Stout - Built on a solid milk stout recipe we'll be adding free trade Ecuadorian Cacao nibs and Tahitian vanilla. My grandmother loves this easy drinking stout.
Lazy Duck American Wheat - This crisp wheat beer is refreshingly light for its style, perfect for a hot Tucson summer. The use of torrified wheat makes for a dry, crackery finish.
Leap Pale Ale - This flagship brew will be a craft beer drinker’s favorite. This beer makes good use of flavorful American hop varieties, but is gentle enough to appeal to non-hop-heads.
Two Suns Citra IIPA - This brew is a hop-head’s dream! The Citra hop variety lends bright, tropical citrusy notes, and is well complemented by the rich, slightly sweet background. This is an all-around big beer, in every way.
Yes! Yes! Yes! More of this sort of thing, Tucson, if you please.
