In this episode I catch up with owner/brewer Allan Conger from 1912 Brewing Company in Tucson. They have been steadily winning folks over since they opened in 2015. Whether it's with a sour created to taste like a dessert, a delicious hazy IPA with a hilariously long name or spot-on traditional Irish red it's hard to not find something you like from 1912. Every year they celebrate their anniversary on July 4th and this year is no different. Enjoy the show!

Currently there are around 100 breweries in Arizona. In this series we’ll travel throughout the state to get an idea of where all of the breweries are in a given region of the state. In this second episode we head south to get a taste of Sonora with some of the best breweries in the state. Downtown Tucson is one of my favorite food/drink spots but hidden gems lie even further south including a brewery who grows 14 different hop varieties. Enjoy this southern AZ beer adventure!

This is the 6th episode in this miniseries we did with InkleDeux to get our Certified Beer Server cert.

In the words of Sinatra "...you can't have one without the other!" Although I'm sure it wasn't his intent it makes me think of food and beer. Every. Single. Time. 

Luckily for us, we have one of the best chefs in the universe here in AZ. Tamara Stanger from Cotton &Copper joins AJ, Luke and I to school us on the art of pairing food with beer.

In this episode we jump around the north to some of my favorite breweries of all. What I love about much of Northern Arizona is its contrast to the low desert I normally experience here in Phoenix where I live. Enjoy this northern AZ beer adventure!
