Taste the Sonoran Desert in Your Beer at Terroir on Tap

Posted By on Wed, Aug 31, 2016 at 2:25 PM

If you're into the idea of the desert on your taste buds, then bottoms up!

You may be familiar with Good Oak Bar, 316 E. Congress Street., an alcoholic hangout that prides itself on serving local beer, wine and regional whiskey.

This weekend, the downtown bar will putting Terroir on Tap and serving a collection of beer with ingredients native to the Sonoran desert. Stop by anytime Sept. 2-10 to give it a try.

So, what is terroir? Well, it’s usually used in the wine world, but essentially terroir involves influences from a region's environment and puts it in the alcoholic beverage—in this case the environment of the Sonoran desert and locally grown fruits and veggies.

Here's a little bit about the event from Luke Anable, Good Oak's manager:

Beginning Thursday the 2nd of the September, Good Oak will feature draft beers from five breweries which they feel capture an aspect of the Sonoran desert through the use of native souring yeasts and local ingredients - a ‘terroir tap take over’ for the Labor Day weekend. We are especially excited to have the acclaimed Flagstaff brewery Wanderlust participating in the event as they typically don’t distribute their beer in Tucson due to their small production scale, providing us with a unique opportunity to share these unique high desert brews with the Tucson public.

We will have custom mini growlers for guests who want to enjoy these rare beers at home. Brewers will be stopping in throughout the weekend to pour and discuss their beer.
