It's been just three years, but Dragoon Brewing Co. quickly solidified its spot in the hearts of beer enthusiasts as a favorite for creative brews in Tucson. Whether you're the type who gets the Dragoon IPA every time or you like to venture out and try new things, you should head to the brewery, located at 1859 W. Grant Road Suite 111, on Saturday for their third anniversary celebration.
Chelsea Blue of Dragoon said the event caps off the brewery's growth.
"We are so, so thrilled to be celebrating our third anniversary," Blue said. "With our new expansion, we're really feeling the growth Dragoon has had over the last three years and can't wait for the coming years ahead of us."
For the event, Ricuras de Venezuela, Black Top Grill, Lucky Girl and Zany Beaver will serve a variety of eats for imbibing party goers. The brewery will also be releasing the fourth iteration of their Russian Imperial stout—aptly named The Quatro. Compared to the last three, Blue said The Quatro has a bit of a drier finish with the "same bold, black, deliciousness as all the others."
A special tasting flight of the brewery's Belgian beers will be available as well featuring the Loonie (a single), Toonie (a double), Canadian Tuxedo (a tripel) and the Beire del Bac (a quad).
The brewery will also be serving 11 other beers on tap. Here's what you can expect:
- Dragoon IPA
- Stronghold Session
- Pony Express
- Super Stronghold
- Saison Blue
- Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tres
- Barrel-Aged Scout Porter
Dragoon Brewing's third anniversary party kicks off at noon on Saturday, April 18 and runs until 10 p.m. Tours of the brewery will run starting at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. A raffle benefitting Tu Nidito will feature prizes from a handful of local businesses like Salon Salon, Casa Video, Proper and more.
