Kyle Jefferson and Linette Antillon, co-founders of Pueblo Vida Brewing, opened shop downtown in 2014. Their space, which was built in 1918 and required extensive reverse-renovating like removing plaster from old brick and paint from hardwood floors, now beautifully highlights the building’s original craftsmanship, and serves as a comfortable place to gather over beers, conversation, live music, or yoga—whatever is on tap that day.
Pueblo Vida is eager to play an active and positive role in the Tucson community, and they are always looking for opportunities to collaborate with local businesses. They have partnered with local designers Graphic Fusion Design and Saywells Design, clothing company Fed by Threads, and many restaurants.
A recent example of this community-minded collaboration is their CSA+C (Community Supported Agriculture + Craft), a collaboration with Pivot Produce. Customers sign up to receive a box of local goodies once a week—goat cheese from Fiore di Capra, bread from Small Planet Bakery, coffee from Yellow Brick Coffee, eggs and produce sourced by Pivot from local farms, and, of course, two 750 milliliter growlers from Pueblo Vida Brewery.
Pueblo Vida also hosts pop-up dinners with food from different local restaurants, classes about beer, and Poses and Pints, a $5 weekly yoga class that includes a pint at the end.
Their beer offerings change regularly. They typically have the Bavarian Hefweizen, Northwest IPA, and Breakfast Stout on tap, alongside rotating seasonal brews and infusions. Infusions are released each Tuesday, and once they’re out, they’re gone.
Flights are also available at the brewery, and, if you don’t have time to drink your beer in the tap room, 64-ounce growlers are available to go. Pueblo Vida beers can be found at a number of restaurants around town, and their taproom is open seven days a week.
