Brewer’s Blog: Upcoming Beers (Ground Control Collabs, All the Hops, West Coast IPA’s, and More)

It's been a while since the last Brewer's Blog update... As it turns out, having two breweries is pretty time consuming! It's been an exciting few months since the time of getting North up and running and we're starting to settle into a routine. We've started some can releases so now we're packaging at both [...]

Thoughts From North: Phoenix Updates

Here at Tombstone Brewing Company North, we've been diligently working to craft not only the best food and beer experience for your buck, but also to personalize the atmosphere in which to enjoy it. Bare walls now feature TVs: We've added little branding touches everywhere: ' And it's our swag on display and our beer [...]

Barleywine And Stout Bottle Release 2/13!

Since we first started Tombstone Brewing Company, we've been making big stouts and barleywines. After opening in Tombstone in October of 2016, we did our first bottle release in February of 2017. It was an awesome release party, and the popularity of the beers we released eventually led to us launching a barrel society and starting [...]

Brewer’s Blog: New Brewery, New Beers!

It's still hard to believe that 2 weeks ago, we bought a brewery in Phoenix. It was a wild ride announcing that we were moving in, having the taproom open 4 days later, and production beginning that same week. In pretty typical Tombstone fashion, we hit the ground running and filled all 6 fermenters there [...]

Brewer’s Blog: TBC Adopts Low Oxygen Brewing Techniques, Upcoming Beers

As I sit down to type up this post, it strikes me that this is a pretty comical way of eating my words. Not only am I excited about using new techniques that I had written off and even mocked a little bit, but I'm also announcing the release of a style that I've called [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Bavarian Helles, Tombstone Lite, Beer for Connoisseurs

I don't think that in the nearly 4 years that Tombstone Brewing has been in operation that I've been as excited about any release as I am about the beers we have coming up. We've been brewing lagers sporadically ever since we opened, but we haven't brewed them nearly as often as I'd like to [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Cranking Foamers with Dark Sky Brewing

As some of you might remember, during the last World Series, I made a bet with Ryan at Dark Sky Brewing that Justin Verlander would get his first world series win in game 6. The bet went: If the Nationals won, we had to brew an Imperial Pils using our select lot of Strata hops [...]

Barrel-Aged Barleywine Can Release!

It's going to be a big weekend for us, as Saturday will be our very first release of barrel-aged beers in cans. Here they are, five barrel variants of "Not Really A Barleywine:" If you don't remember the base beer, Not Really A Barleywine came out in early 2019. The idea of the beer was [...]

So Many Hops!

If I had to say something nice about 2020, it would probably be that the hops are great. 2019 was a heck of a harvest, and we've been enjoying the bounty all of 2020 so far. I can't remember when I've been so excited about hops. These three cans are available in Tombstone and at accounts [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Beer for Connoisseurs, Dreher’s Original, Historical Lager Mini-Series

In the past couple weeks we've had to make a few changes to our production schedule due to unforeseen circumstances. Fortunately, our schedule has been only slightly impacted and the biggest change from our plan actually resulted in something that I'm pretty excited about anyways. For almost a year now, I've been joking that Tombstone [...]
