Best-Tasting Local Brew

Nimbus Brewing Company

Any beer company with a monkey as its mascot and a healthy sense of parody in its advertising has to be good, and our very own Nimbus Brewing Company lives up to the expectations. Nimbus' varied beers are tasty and memorably named: You may forget what you did after downing a couple of pints of Old Monkeyshine, but you won't forget that you were drinking Old Monkeyshine. And in proper Tucson fashion, Nimbus' Dirty Guera is an international melting pot of flavor: Bisbee killer-bee honey gives a Southwestern edge to those German hops. Even the boringly named Red Ale and Brown Ale are delicious. We raise our Nimbus pint glasses full of brew and paraphrase the words of Benjamin Franklin: There will be good living where there is good drinking.
