We heard a rumor going around Tucson that trained bears from a Russian circus were spotted serving up brews at local bars. We have never seen them, but we know Nimbus beers are served on tap at local bars and at the Nimbus Brewery in the industrial area of East 44th Street. Another favorite is the rich-tasting Belgian White Ale, with just a hint of sweetness. This is an expensive ale if bought imported from Europe. We should all be grateful we have our very own microbrewery. If you are tired of the same old national brands, try out some new local brews like Oatmeal Stout, Dirty Guera or Old Monkeyshine Ale.
