Tucson recently got some love from the online publisher UPROXX, which recently shared a list of “The Most Underrated Beer Cities For 2023, According To Craft Beer Pros.”

The article expresses the importance of grabbing a cold, crisp, and rather tasty craft beer while traveling — Tucson being one of those spots that’s “funky, artsy, and weird” to keep you busy during your trip.

“To help us uncover the best beer cities to visit in 2023, we went to the professionals for help,” said Christopher Osburn of UPROXX. “We asked a few well-known brewers and craft beer experts to tell us their picks for the most underrated, up-and-coming, off-the-beaten-path beer cities.”

Here’s what they had to say about the suds in the Old Pueblo:

“Tucson is the Austin of Arizona. It’s a funky, artsy, weird, left-leaning enclave that feels satisfyingly out of place with the rest of the state. The city punches above its weight in both brewery quantity (18 last I checked) and quality. Pueblo Vida Brewing Co. does hazy IPAs (and label artwork) as well as any brewery in the country. Dragoon Brewing Co. has for a long while made what might be the most reliably awesome West Coast IPA in the state. Borderlands Brewing Co., Crooked Tooth Brewing Co., and Motosonora Brewing Co. are all likewise creating beers both intriguing and excellent.”

Additionally, the craft beer professionals that helped brew up the article said that Tap & Bottle “deserves a spot in the beer bar/bottleshop hall of fame.”
