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 [...]

Second Anniversary Beers!

We turn two years old tomorrow! To celebrate, we're engaging in a bit of self-indulgence. We love hazy IPAs as much as anyone, but we're also in many instances even more excited about some of the truly unique beers we've produced over the past two years. We're canning two of our favorites tomorrow. Here's the [...]

Fresh Hop Beers Are Coming This Sunday!

This Sunday, we'll be canning two of the most unique, exciting, and unexpected beers we've ever made. Weedy already wrote about them here, but that was before we sorted out how we were going to do packaging. The lead time on an order for a pallet of cans is close to two months, but we [...]

Presta Coffee and Brandy Alexander Oak-Fermented Stouts!

If we have any sort of motto, it would probably be something along the lines of "everything matters." After spending a year and a half taking the approach that every ingredient and every little part of the process is important, few things seem more confusing than the oddly ubiquitous concepts in the brewing industry of [...]

“Beer Nerd” – Our New Bourbon Barrel Stout Collaboration With GCM!

One of our first accounts, and one of our biggest and most reliable ever since, is GCM Liquor in Gilbert. It's an awesome place with a great beer selection, but they don't just sell beer. Their bourbon game is particularly notable too, so it should come as no surprise that they did an Elijah Craig single barrel pick [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Continuing to Roll Out New Beers

It seems like every time Matt and I get the opportunity to get out of the brewery, hang out with other brewers, and stay up late drinking beers, we have the best brainstorming sessions about the future of Tombstone beers. Every time we get these chances, I always come back super excited about what we've [...]

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 [...]
