Borderlands Re-Opens On Friday

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 6:20 PM

The guys from Borderlands Brewing Co., located at 119 E. Toole Ave., spent the holiday season replacing their old fermenting tanks with much bigger ones so you can enjoy more beer, and now more often.

“We’re just real excited to get back up and running again,” said Mike Mallozzi, co-owner of the brewery.

The brewery will be open this Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with live music from Gabriel Sullivan and Joe Novelli. There will also be a food truck in the parking lot.

Blake Collins, head brewmaster, has come up with yet another unique brew made with local ingredients. "Agua Bendita" is what they're calling their newest product, a wheat wine made with heirloom Sonoran White wheat, orange peel, coriander and jasmine tea from a local tea company.

“We brewed it especially for our anniversary,” Mallozzi said. “It’s called a wine because it has a high alcohol content but it’s not made from fruit.”

The brewery opened its doors Dec. 10, 2011 and closed its doors for expansion exactly a year later.

Not only will the three owners, Myles Stone, Mallozzi and Collins, offer their guests more beer, but they're also extending their hours. The brewery will now be open for tasting Wednesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The trio hopes to get more of the after-work crowd in by staying open an hour later, and one more day than last year.

They're also hoping to distribute to more businesses in Tucson now that they'll be brewing more than three times what they used to.

“We’re going to have to take a couple of months to see how much beer we go through here at the brewery so we can have a good understanding of how much beer there is available for distribution,” Mallozzi said.
