Check Out Ten Fifty-Five Brewing

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2012 at 9:00 AM

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.
