An Update on Borderlands Brewing Company

See all this grain? This is what the guys down at Borderlands Brewing Company will use to brew their first batches of beer, which could be ready by early October.

Myles Stone said yesterday that the only thing between him and brewing that first batch of beer is getting the electricity turned on, which is expected to happen any day now. In the meantime, artist Joe Pagac is working on the sign for the front of the building while overseeing a mural being painted on the back of the building.

This work with Pagac is the beginning of a partnership between the brewery and local artists that I find fascinating. Tucson artists will design the labels and it has been said that there will be many partnerships between Borderlands and Dinnerware Artspace, which is located in the other half of the building at 119 E. Toole Ave.

Stone says he hopes to have a few kegs ready for the Tucson Beer Festival on Oct. 8. He also says work is underway on the "most kick ass beer garden in the Southwest."

Are you excited? I am.
