The craft brew scene is Baja Arizona is, well, hopping! With 15 breweries in Tucson and more in the pipeline in 2017, the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy in the US can slake your thirst for local brews with indigenous ingredients. We have excellent standard beers, but you'll also find beers with local heritage grains, chiles, Sonoran Desert fruits, and other surprises.
Baja Brews is a collaboration between Edible Baja Arizona and the craft brewers of Tucson. Tasting events were held every eight weeks, with brewers crafting one of a kind beers using a different thematic set of ingredients. Remember to think and drink local!
