When the Nimbus Brewery opened in 1996 I doubt that anyone thought it would expand beyond its big warehouse location on 44th Street (oh yes you will need your GPS to get there if you are a first timer!). Beer lovers have been happy to drive to the middle of nowhere to enjoy the beer, the "guest" beer, and the specials. Big loud place. Live music, too. Lo and behold, now there is a regular bistro featuring the Nimbus brews, a regular menu, and an easy to find location on Tanque Verde. Same beer, different vibe. http://www.nimbusbeer.com/ P.S. The monkey stamp says, "It's a natural selection."
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
