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: 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 [...]

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 [...]

Brewer’s Blog: What’s Brewing

As I was brewing last week, it struck me that we were brewing a kind of “Greatest Hits” lineup. We’ve got our original IPA, Dank Fruit Double, and All the Hops Triple IPA in the fermenters now. Every time we brew IPA, it’s like greeting an old friend that you haven’t seen in a long [...]

Brewer’s Blog: Not Really a Barleywine, Beer Guy, Bright and Juicy, Pale Lager

It's been a fun week at the brewery! After releasing a new IPA over the weekend, we brewed three entirely new beers that we're excited to share soon. First up, we have "Not Really a Barleywine." As anyone who has followed Tombstone from the beginning knows, lighthearted trolling is right up our alley. In the [...]

Brewer’s Blog: “All the Hops” Series

For the last couple of months, we've been brewing a lot of single hop IPA's. This has been a way of showing off the quality of our selected hop contracts. Anyone that's been following us for the last couple years knows that raw material quality is something that we take very seriously and these hops [...]
