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 [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Annual Hop Report and Upcoming Wet Hop Beers

What a week it has been! I brewed my first wet hop beers 6 years ago and ever since then, September has been a roller coaster of emotions alternating between excitement and dread. The actual brew day for wet hop beers is intense and a logistical nightmare, but the reward is so worth the extra [...]

Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stouts!

Weedy already announced that we'll be releasing bottles of 5 different barrel-aged variants of our Russian Imperial Stout on the 31st of this month, but it's a big enough deal that it definitely merits its own post. Plus, today we got to sample the beers as we racked them out of the barrels where they've lived [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Where da’ Cans At?!? The hectic time of year

I guess when you get predictable, any deviation from the predictable behavior is immediately noticeable. In this case, my inbox has been flooded with questions about when our next can release would be since  it’s been a few weeks and we’ve been a bit quiet during that time. The date for the next can release [...]
