Best Locally Brewed Beer 

Tucson Blonde

Barrio Brewing Company

800 E. 16th St.

We don't know if blondes really have more fun, but we've had plenty of fun with Barrio Brewing's Tucson Blonde, the flagship beer at Barrio Brewing Company. Barrio owner Dennis Arnold has been brewing beer since he took over UA institution Gentle Ben's more than two decades ago and Tucson Blonde has been there from the start, making it the oldest continually brewed microbrew in the state. The folks at Beer Advocate magazine call it "a light, crisp beer with a slight malt flavor and just enough Czechoslovakian Saaz hops to balance the malt sweetness." We just know it's perfect on a hot summer afternoon

Runners up:

2. Dragoon IPA (Dragoon Brewing Company)

3. Barrio Rojo (Barrio Brewing Company)
