Trip to Tucson, visit Mr. Beer?

17 posts in this topic

To the Mr. Beer Team, it looks like there is a very good chance of my company visiting a customer in Tucson.  If so, I would take the trip in hopes that I could stop by and visit.  Would that be possible?  I would plan an extra day there to visit as I guess no one is there after hours.

Totally. Now that we have the Everything Homebrew store here, there's actually something to visit! Before, Mr. Beer pilgrims arrived to find, well, an office building. I mean, I guess @MRB Josh R could come out to the lobby and talk to you or whatever, but it's just not the same.

Nice!  I'll keep this thread updated as the time approaches assuming everything goes to plan.

It's on!  Shipped the component to the customer so I'm planning on flying out there Oct. 11 and returning Friday or Saturday.  It looks like I can get there around lunch on Wednesday so I'd head over to the Mr. Beer shop for a few beers, I mean minutes.  Customer on Thursday and try to meet a forum member from an FAL forum.

Here are two Mr. Beer employees (one of them may be MRB Tim) entertaining a visiting customer before the Homebrew store existed:

Any other recommendations for dinner or drinks?  I'll have two nights open for dinner.  If it is at a brewpub, so much the better.  I'll most likely head over to Dragoon after leaving Mr. Beer since they aren't too far apart if they are open.

Well, I made it to Mr. Beer headquarters.  Josh and I talked for a bit, toured the digs, sampled some beer, got the skinny on some of the micros in town to hit, and I bought some half-price HMEs.  Nice visit - thanks, Josh!

I made it to Dragoon Brewing after visiting Josh and stopping at the Tucson Hop House.

Their Frosty Friends Red IPA was awesome. It was even more awesome cask aged with an extra dry hop addition.
