A couple of weeks ago, Tucson’s newest brewery, Slow Body Beer Co., held a sneak peek at Tap & Bottle of what they’ve been brewing these past few months.

Today, you can enjoy one of their beers in their very own taproom!

“Think of it as a ‘petite’ opening if you will, before our big Grand Opening on Saturday.”
