Congratulations to Rebecca and Scott, the owners of the Tap n Bottle for their 3rd place finish in the Mountain West district of the Great American Beer Bar competition. I was very happy to see that so many Tucson craft beer drinkers agreed with me and voted for Tap n Bottle. Scott and Rebecca overcame many obstacles to open their place and Tucson is grateful for their perseverance. Tucson craft beer scene needed a place that was about having a great, quality beer selection without personal bias.If you haven't met Scott and Rebecca when you are there just walk up to them and introduce yourself, they are very friendly and easy to get along with. Their place has a very good bottle selection and they are expanding beer and wine as they move forward. You can see their location and menu here, Tap n Bottle. Their tap selection changes regularly and has many exclusive limited edition releases from breweries. I know my distributor now orders those special beers with Tap n Bottle in mind and if the other distributors have half a mind they are doing the same thing. So, as a result of that you can depend upon Scott and Rebecca to have a great new limited beer on tap that you can't buy in a bottle in stores. That's the beauty of their business model; it changes its selections of draft beer to their customers on a regular basis of high quality and exclusive beers while maintaining a bottle selection of many quality beers that will be there for your return visits.
Below is my first attempt of a video using my phone camera and an app so it's not all that great but you can get an idea of the place immediately after opening on a Wednesday. Did someone say a more stable picture would be nice? Answer: I hadn't had a beer yet so excuse me.
