“Simply staying alive to an atmosphere where we can thrive"

Spring is upon us and businesses are springin’ into action.

Ten55 Brewing Company just announced that it’s reopening its kitchen at the downtown brewery, along with a few other additional enhancements.

The new menu, which is a refresh of its well-known pub cuisine concept, now includes dishes that were intentionally created to pair with its line-up of craft beers.

Sure, the menu is a bit scaled-back and smaller than it used to be, but it’ll offer 13 different selections — Snacks, Mains, Handhelds, and Dessert categories. Additionally, new dishes are expected to be added on a regular basis.

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by, you’ll notice a recently covered outdoor patio created to open up more space to enjoy a cold brew and some grub.

On top of that, Ten55 Brewing has a new packaged beer program with two canned beers, and also an agreement with Finley Distributing to send off its kegs and cans across southern Arizona.

The brewery is now canning two of its signature beers, Casa55, a new, light-bodied golden ale brewed with flaked corn, and its flagship XOXO Coffee Stout, an American stout infused with cold brew coffee from Tucson’s Exo Coffee Roasters.

“Not only did we keep our heads about us and remain intact through this soon-ending pandemic, we have been able to continue brewing our signature beers, getting them out into our community, and keeping our growing brewery alive and kicking,” said Chris Squires, managing partner.

The canned beers are available to-go from the brewery, and at many grocery stores, markets, and liquor stores across Southern Arizona through a new distribution agreement with Tucson-based Finley Distributing.
