In a nutshell:
- A must-visit in Tombstone
- Amazing beer! Worth the Drive
- Our favorite beers: Helles Dorado Lager and the Spawn of Earp
As ironic as this might sound coming from a travel blogger, I’ll still readily admit that my favorite trip suggestions tend to be the old-fashioned, word-of-mouth recommendations from the people I trust. I’m sure you know exactly the types of friends I am talking about too… the ones whose stamp of approval carries a lot of weight in determining your next dining experience, day trip, vacation, or -in my case- local brewery.
So, although I’d already sampled a few of their canned beers, I decided to trust my fellow beer aficionados and make the trip down with Sam to get a flight for ourselves at Tombstone Brewing Company.
I must reiterate, we didn’t stumble on this brewery on a trip to Tombstone. We went to Tombstone specifically to sample a flight there. And let me tell you now, it did not disappoint.
The brewery itself is a hop, skip, and a jump away from Allen Street in the Historic District, which makes it a convenient location if you wanted to incorporate a trip to Old Tombstone. The brewery offers indoor and outdoor seating and the knowledgeable staff will happily point you in the direction of a beer you might like if you are new to craft beer. (For our interview with the Owner and Manager of Tombstone Brewing Company and yet more reasons to visit this place, click HERE!).
Intentionally or not, the ambiance of the brewery echoes the town’s roots. It was easy to imagine being in the Wild West, relaxing at a good saloon in a dusty corner of the desert, especially with the good company, an excellent brew in your hand, and your horse -I mean, car- parked somewhere outside.
Tombstone Brewing Company is a great stop to make while visiting “The Town too Tough to Die.” I recommend getting the sample flight, it’s super cute looking and would make a great prop for your pictures. I also love that this brewery is so close to all the Tombstone touristy action, you can easily have a couple beers and then walk to restaurants, shops, and entertainment (like their famous gun fight shows). Two thumbs up for Tombstone Brewing Company!
