First of all if you are looking for craft beer this is not the place. They have a few in bottles, but as for taps they seem to have given their lines primarily to the big 3 and their affiliates. There might be a couple drafts from New Belgium and maybe one local (Nimbus) but that is about it, your choice is limited. As for the bottles, they will have Arrogant Bastard and a few other random choices, but considering craft beer drinkers probably don't go here much, I'm willing to bet some of those beers might not be fresh. As for food/service its pretty unremarkable. This is a giant restaurant/bar without much character. Have some wings and move along on your search for good beer...

Massive sports bar with lots of TV's and pool tables. I coulnd't really figure out if this is a Fox Sports Bar or not, because nearly every sports program in Arizona is through Fox Sports. The beer selection is pretty good. Mostly in-state micros (Nimbus) with some regional stuff mixed in (New Belgium). About 30-40 good beers on tap, including the typical macros. The food is standard bar fare, and kind of pricey. Its good for Tucson, but not a place that I would frequent back home in San Diego. Overall, a good place.

This place is a really, really long drive from where I live on the exact opposite side of the city, but I happened to be in the area doing some work for a client and decided it would be worth a stop.
The building is located in the parking lot of the Foothill's Mall, the same mall that Thunder Canyon brewery is located in. From the outside, the building is very plain...just a big tan boxy thing with the name on the front and dark tinted windows.
Walking inside, it's dark again...dark wood, dark lighting. I'm sure it feels quite nice to walk into this dark, A/C'ed building on a hot summer day, but it's a bit much for me today. Besides that, the only real decor are the large TV's and the typical American restaurant signage on the walls. Nothing creative. On either side of the eating area are two rooms with more TV's and several pool tables...seven or eight in all. The room to the left (as you face away from the front of the building) is a room where cigar smoking is allowed...they have a decent menu of somewhat overpriced cigars, just in case you forgot to bring your own. The bar is laid out at the back of the building and behind it rests perhaps 30-40 taps.
I sit down and look over the beer menu...um, not bad I guess. The tap selection is actually mostly domestic macro lagers, with things like Bud Select sitting right with Alaskan Amber (which I ordered first) in the "speciality tap" list. Some good enough offerings, though. The bottle list isn't bad either, with offerings from Stone and Rogue and even some Belgian beers. However, when I ordered a Stone IPA with my fish and chips, they brought it out in a bottle. No glass in sight. And then I got a "who are you, Senior Fancy Pants?" look from the waitress when I politely asked for one. At least it didn't come with a lime...
But it does make me wonder...would they have just plopped down a bottle in front of me if I had ordered something like a Lindeman's Framboise? And if I had asked for a glass, would it have been a pint glass? I could have lived with that, but would have really preferred a tulip, or at least a snifter. I doubt I would have been so fortunate though.
Anyway, just advocate for yourself and ask for a glass when you order from the bottle menu to save the ladies a second trip, I guess. As for the food, it was quite good. I had the Newcastle beer-batter fish and chips and could definitely taste the beer. The fish was nice a soft and flakey as well, and the fries were good.
Service was fine, overall, but I wouldn't expect any of the waitresses to know much about the beer. Maybe ask the bartender if you need any help...
All in all, a nice enough place...it has definite faults, but they can be worked around if you go in knowing what to expect. Definitely, though, the best place in town to drink good beer, smoke a good cigar and play several hours worth of pool.

this is one of my top three places to get a pint of beer, especially on tuesday when all of the tap beers are $2. the atmosphere is great when to pool room, a nice lounge with couches and big screen tvs close to 50 in the whole establishment. service is kinda slow depending on what time you go and day of the week. the food is very good i usually try something different everytime i go in there, the potato skins with chicken on them are excellent. i highly recommend visiting this place if in the area anytime soon.
