Tap & Bottle
403 N. 6th Ave Ste 135, Tucson, AZ 85705
Sample review (from Leila R.): "This place is like Disneyland for beer! Between the awesome tap offerings and their bottle selection, if you like beer, you will be in heaven here! It gets hella crowded, so you have to be aggressive when approaching the bar to place your order, otherwise, you will dwindle amongst the regulars and college crowd."
Graze Premium Burgers
2721 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 86716
Sample review (from Belliny F.): "Very very delicious burgers! I was so impressed with the quality and taste of the burger. The fries were so-so and the soft drink situation was a bit different. Not your traditional drinks so you'll have to experiment a little and see what you like."

Sample review (from Colin K.): "I am a really big fan of this place. Their food is pretty good and the beer is great. I love the atmosphere, it's a great place to watch a game or just relax with a flight and play shuffleboard."
