How many brewing operations do we have so far here in Tucson? There's Gentle Ben's, Barrio Brewing Co. Thunder Canyon Brewery, Nimbus and the two newcomers: Borderlands Brewing Co. and Dragoon Brewing Co.
There's also the small outfit Catalina Brewing Co. up in Catalina, a couple of locations of the chain BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse and the small brewery called The Address that's run by the owner of 1702.
But it looks like there are still more people planning to get involved in the local brewing business. In recent weeks two liquor license applications have been filed for two more brewing operations: Corbett Brewing Company and Sentinel Peak Brewing Company.
The name on the application for Corbett Brewing Company is Scott James Cummings, who I think is the owner of a bar and restaurant down on Fourth Avenue. I put in a call down there to see what's up with this new place, but haven't heard anything.
The name on the Sentinel Peak Brewing Company liquor license application is Jeremy Hildebrand, who I have never heard of. The listed address is 1102 W. Grant Road, though, which I believe is the old slaughter house where they've been holding haunted houses for the past several years.
