Guide to Beer on Tucson’s Chuck Huckelberry Loop (Foodie 15)

Updated March 5, 2024

Hop on your bike, take a stroll, and dive into the adventure of The Loop — officially known as The Chuck Huckelberry Loop. This winding wonder weaves through the scenic routes of Tucson, the outskirts of Marana, the mountainous views of Oro Valley, and more. As a matter of fact, USA Today once recognized The Loop as the top bike path in America.

The Loop has multiple paths and if you’re taking on one of the larger routes you may need a pitstop for a cold one. Here’s a list of 15 of our favorite spots to grab a beer along The Loop, which aren’t too far off of the path. Additionally, we’ve included the Oro Valley/CDO/Marana Extensions as well.

Tucked away in an industrial park, Button Brew House is a hidden gem for beer lovers. It’s just off the interstate and has a chill vibe with a cozy bar and an outdoor patio that’s perfect for sunny days. Their range of beers on tap is just the right size for a tasty variety.

This poppin’ spot in Marana is a beer and wine bar/bottle shop that has a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. They usually have a few food trucks parked outside throughout the week and the patio is perfect for catching an Arizona sunset.

Casa Marana

Casa Marana features a balanced selection of beers, wine, cocktails, and some tasty pizzas. It’s wood-fired pizza — you can see the huge oven behind the bar — and are some of our favorite pies in Marana. They also maintain an exceptionally active events calendar. Out on the patio, you can catch a sweet sunset if you time it out just right.

Catalina Brewing Company

Just as Dragoon Brewing is not located in the Dragoons, Catalina Brewing is not located in Catalina. It’s close, though, kind of. Situated near Ina and I-10, Catalina Brewing features a unique lineup of beer plus a menu full of items that they also make in-house.

Dragoon Brewing Company

Dragoon is more than just a brewing company, it’s a community of beer lovers who are passionate about making and sharing the best beer possible. They offer a wide variety of beers, from their year-round staples like Dragoon IPA to specialty releases that keep things interesting. But what sets them apart is their focus on quality and the sense of family that permeates everything they do.

Fork & Fire Smokehouse + Taproom

Fork ‘N Fire is a sizzling hotspot that ignites the senses with its delectable wood-fired creations. This joint offers a diverse menu featuring artisanal pizzas, flame-kissed burgers, and flavorful dishes that showcase the essence of wood-fired cooking. Oh yeah, we’re talkin’ beer here, right? They have at least 15 beers on tap to wet your whistle — from local brews to classics like Coors Light.

The Hoppy Vine

The taproom, found in the Oro Valley Marketplace (near Charred Pie and Tuk Tuk Thai), offers a selection of 20 craft beers, 10 wines, and at least one hard cider and seltzer — all on tap. Additionally, The Hoppy Vine houses a row of coolers consisting of craft beer, wine, and champagne as well as wine-based cocktails, sake, seltzers, and ciders. Are you one with a penchant for non-alcoholic beverages? They’ve got you covered on that front, too, with offerings that include non-alcoholic beer, seltzers, canned mocktails, and even a “mocktail of the day.”

Louie’s Cantina

Louie’s Cantina is a go-to bar for the neighbors, workers, and those seeking a dark yet well-lit respite in that east-end area. Over at this east side bar, you can experience several beers on tap, in bottles, or cans, plus that same lauded michelada, whichever your preference of mix or beer, available at the sister location, Louie’s Pub.

This spot is a total beer lover’s paradise with an amazing selection of craft brews. Plus, the views from the patio are social media-worthy. As for food, their Fish and Chips, Carne Asada Tacos, or Steak and Frites are all must-try dishes.

Shooter’s Saloon

Belly up to the bar at Shooters on Friday or Saturday night for karaoke that won’t make your head hurt (seriously, the regulars have skills); or come at happy hour time for specials on no-fuss bar food and booze.

Trident Grill II

Pick a sport any sport—Trident is the place to watch it. If that game happens to fall on a weekday during happy hour, you’ll get added bang for your buck (and more fuel for your fandom).

Tucson Hop Shop

To many, it’s known as an escape — a place where you can enjoy a cold beer, get lost in an intriguing conversation, and catch a fresh breeze outside on the patio. They think of it as their getaway from the everyday grind. Some plainly call it “Hop Shop.” No matter what it means to you or what you tend to call it, Tucson Hop Shop is a wonderful spot to simply hang out.

Not just beer but cocktails, too! While the outdoor seating is perfect for taking advantage of Tucson’s cool nights, there’s one more notable perk — the liquor license applies to the whole MSA Annex, so guests can walk around with their libations to check out the neighboring businesses in shipping containers.
