Its just basically a small, air-conditioned room separated from the brewery itself. They have about 7 or 8 tables, the bar, and a bar against the wall. The employees are helpful and awesome, the brewery tour is cool (even though its just a small one room warehouse) and they offer all of their current beers on tap. The option for flights to try them all is great and the glassware is perfect. They actually serve beer in something besides pint glasses, which seems to be rare. I thought it seemed like a cool place to go and hang out to get a few beers with friends.
Apparently they also have food trucks come by a few days a week, but I haven't been there for the food yet.

This is definitely an up and coming brewery to watch. The taproom is not open everyday, but it is not meant to be a bar, so I am more than fine with that. When you drive up, the space is some random warehouse that is next to an indoor batting cage. When you walk inside you will see about 8 tables along with a small bar, with glass doors leading to the actual brewhouse.
The size is both a good and a bad a thing, finding a table can be hard if there are more than 20 people, but you also don't have to worry about service, which has been great. The taproom manager, appropriately named Stout, keeps everything running as smoothly as possible and takes care of his regulars.
The selection seems appropriate for a brewery of this size. The last time I went in, there were about 8 beers on tap that were varied in style. Not an overwhelming selection, but there are plenty of things to try in a couple of sessions, not to mention they would have trouble making more than that with consistent quality. Growler fills are also possible if you find something you like and want to drink it at home.
The beers I have had have been good overall. They typically have a saison, a session, an IPA, a stout or porter, and a pale. I have only found the IPA and session ale around town, so if you want to try their other offerings, you need to stop by. I haven't had anything yet that made me regret making the drive.
The only gripe I have is that the location is further away than I would prefer, but you can't have your cake and eat it too. The breweries that are downtown, Thunder Canyon and Borderlands, are easily forgotten when I make the trip. Another smaller gripe is the lack of a TV which is important during football season.
They don't have a kitchen, but they do have food trucks that come by. You could also easily bring your own food and no one will hassle you.
If you are in Tucson and like beer, you should stop by and at least grab a growler. Don;t be discourage by the other local breweries which I find to be mediocre. You are missing out if you don't give it a try.
