Button’s flagship beer is the “Chiltepín Red Ale,” a unique twist on a red ale, which is brewed with spicy Sonoran chiltepíns and fresh lime peel. Co-owner Todd Button spent months crafting a beer that while spicy, you can have more than one of them.
Every Sunday, you can try their homemade michelada sauce with the “Chiltepin Red,” or if you want it more traditional, try it with their “Volstead Pilsner.” Be sure to also try their “All Souls Stout” and “Button IPA,” their version of a West Coast IPA that contains five varieties of American hops.

They are known for their “Mesquite Agave,” which uses dry mesquite pods in their beer, that gives it a unique sweetness. Their “0200 IPA” is the beer that started it all, giving owner Brian and Hank the inspiration to open the brewery… of course at 2 a.m. Hank was a teacher and they have created many beers in honor of teachers such as “Hop For Teacher,” “Teachers Aid” and “#redfored.”

Dillinger Brewing Company
While most breweries are located in business districts, Dillinger stands out as one of the hardest to find, located at the end of a long dark alley. Their taproom even feels like a speakeasy, emblazoned with mural of legendary John Dillinger wearing sunglasses. They are known for their “Roadrunner Red Ale,” the official beer of the Tucson Roadrunners, as well as the “Senorwheata” and the “Serrano Seduction.”
They have recently have focused their efforts on barrel-aged beer and gose. Their “Gose Rosa” is a traditional gose infused with fresh blackberries, hibiscus, sea salt and Mexican coriander. They have even started infusing their “Senorwheata” with your choice of apricot, raspberry or strawberry.
They are located at 3895 N. Oracle Road.
Harbottle’s approach to beer is to revive classical styles that aren’t well known. Their “Kentucky Sunglasses” is a Kentucky Common, which is a sour interpretation of a pre-prohibition style beer.
Their “Two Hands Cucumber Saison” is a refreshing beer, perfect for the summer and really gives your taste buds a blast of cucumber. “Nigel Tufnel” is their ode to a traditional English bitter, featuring English malts, yeast and hops.
Harbottle is located at 3820 S Palo Verde #102.
Iron John's Brewing Company
Iron John’s is known for their small batches of artisan brews. Every time you walk in the door, you’ll be invited with new culinary inspired brews on tap and bottled. They roll out a new beer every week and that sometimes includes seasonal elements.
Their “Peachy Goat,” which includes locally supplied fruit, tea and goat-milk yogurt. A light wheat and pilsner base with a touch of smoked cherry wood malt and dried mango and apricot provide a subtle and light base for this wheat ale. The addition of black tea in the mash and the infusion of oolong tea in the dry hopping process allow for the delicate flavors of the tea to express themselves. The finish with fresh peach puree and lavender flowers bring the fruit and floral notes to the party.
They are located 245 S Plumer Ave #27
Sentinel Peak Brewing Company
This Brew pub featuring their delicious beers and BBQ was started by 3 firefighters. Head brewer Jeremy Hilderbrand, decided to brew beer after being inspired by a warren of basement bars in Wurzburg, Germany, where he was stationed. He became obsessed with finding Dunkel,when he was back in the U.S. When he couldn’t find it, he brewed it and the result is the “Dewpoint Dunkel,” which won a gold medal from the 2012 Music City Brew Off in Nashville, Tennessee. Hints of roasted chocolate satisfy dark beer lovers and win over those who prefer lighter styles. Try it once and you may be lured to the dark side for good.
Their most popular beer is the “Salida del Sol Amber,” which is a Mexican-style Vienna. In the mid 19th century, German brewers immigrating to Mexico brought along with them their time-honored recipes and techniques. By incorporating local ingredients, the traditional European flavors were transformed into something entirely new and wonderful. Salida del Sol follows in this grand tradition of smooth, spicy beers.
