GENTLE BEN’S BREWING

GENTLE BEN'STUCSON, ARIZONA

Just outside the main gate to University of Arizona, popular campus pub GENTLE BEN’S BREWING (operating since 1970) boasted “Best College Bar” status, but the red-bricked adobe-styled tavern had mostly soapy brews, January ‘05. Antique beer trays lined dining walls; upstairs patio area supported collegiate patrons; and menu featured finger foods, burgers, sandwiches, plus specialty drinks such as T. Rex Cosmo and Rum Bomb.

Unique metal-tiered candleholder sampler held dry-honeyed grassy-hopped Tucson Blonde, metallic yellow-fruited sedation Copperhead Pale Ale, blandly caramel-chocolate Red Cat Amber, fizzy seltzer-like raspberry-soured lemon-candied Taylor Jayne’s Raspberry Ale, minor berry-fruited whiskey-tinged Ben’s India Pale Ale, and sticky perfume-spiced macadamia-bottomed Beer Down Nut Brown.

Peerless alternative, Mocha Java Stout, piled on bittersweet dark chocolate dryness, roasted coffee depth, and toasted oats reliance, making this a top notch alternative.
