More Classic Styles: Bavarian Style Hefeweizen and Irish Dry Stout

While we may love brewing one off hazy IPA's, nothing makes the brewers in Tombstone happier than to get to sneak in some classic styles from time to time. Surprisingly, hefeweizens are probably our most frequently requested style from guests in our taprooms, but in our nearly 5 years of operations, we've put off brewing [...]

Brewer’s Blog: The Return of A Tombstone Classic- English Premium Ale

If you've followed Tombstone Brewing for a while now, you know that although we love brewing hazy IPAs, stouts, sours, and experimental styles, the thing that really gets us excited is brewing classic styles and going all in on the little details to present them in a manner as traditionally as possible. One beer in [...]

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 [...]

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: 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 [...]

Norwegian Farmhouse IPA!

Of all the beers we've brewed, our newest release is by far the most unusual. Behold, Tombstone Brewing Company's Norwegian Farmhouse IPA: It's made with a fascinating yeast known as kveik, which Weedy discussed here. The specific strain we're using has been passed down for generations in Norway, saved in dried yeast rings in open air. But the yeast [...]

We’re Close To The Top Fifty!

About year ago, I was playing with my daughter while my wife interviewed for a new job near Tombstone. Our riveting game of chase-the-just-now-walking-one-year-old was briefly interrupted by a serendipitous glance at a realtor's poster for a building in Tombstone that looked perfect for a brewery. About nine months ago, I sat alone in a building in Tombstone that was perfect for [...]

Brewer’s Blog: The Beginning

A few months ago, I talked to Matt Brown, the founder of Tombstone Brewing Company, for the first time. What started off as a job interview quickly fell apart into two dudes talking for a couple hours about beer. It turned out that we had a lot of the same interests in beers and brewing [...]

Demolition!

In the early planning stages, the whole brewery project felt pretty surreal. The jump from a bunch of ideas to the creation of a brick-and-mortar business that makes delicious liquid happiness is huge one, for sure, but the disconnect between the plan and actually going ahead with the plan is even more dramatic than I [...]

Tombstone Brewing Company Logo

You may have seen Tombstone Brewing Company's logo on Facebook and Twitter, and maybe even on LinkedIn, but here it is in case you missed it: Rick Whipple at Sky Island Studio designed it, and I think he knocked it out of the park. Though I think the black and white version is my favorite, here's the design in color: [...]
