Something new is brewing in the River Center shopping complex at East River and North Craycroft Road.
The team behind Borderlands Brewing Company recently announced that they’ll be opening a third location at 5605 E, River Rd. #201. The new spot will be named Borderlands Brewing North and the expected opening date is March 2024 — the taps will be pouring suds before you know it.
“This new venue will not only feature a variety of entertainment options, such as arcade games, pool tables, air hockey, foosball, and a basketball hoop machine but will also host trivia nights, offer yoga sessions on weekends, karaoke on Saturdays, and live bands whenever possible,” said Es Teran, owner of Borderlands Brewing.
Borderlands has been on a tear in the last couple of years. Most recently, the brewery acquired Dillinger Brewing’s property and brands, meaning that they’ll brew and distribute the beers. About a year ago, Borderlands opened its second Tucson location in the Sam Hughes neighborhood at 2500 E. Sixth St.
Then, just a few months ago, they revamped the food menu at both locations. The newest space will also have a food menu, which used to house Harvest Restaurant until the restaurant closed in 2019.
“Borderlands Brewing will serve the well-loved menus from our Sam Hughes and Downtown locations, with plans to introduce new items in the months ahead,” said Teran. “As always, dogs are welcome, ensuring that our laid-back vibe continues at our new location. We’re committed to maintaining the casual setting our patrons have come to expect.”
Stay tuned for a definite opening date but you can expect it to be in March.
