Love local craft beer? Love fruit? Then you’ll love our third Baja Brews tasting event! On November 17th, twelve local craft brewers will unveil the exclusive beers they’ve brewed just for this event. Each of the beers is brewed with late summer fruits like figs, sugar pie pumpkins, quince, peaches, and raspberries.
What better way is there to help your community than by drinking great beer? Your $15 ticket will give you the opportunity to taste each of these twelve exclusive beers and, as with all Baja Brews Tasting Events, will benefit four amazing Tucson nonprofit organizations that are working to improve food security in our community: Desert Harvesters, Native Seeds/SEARCH, Iskashitaa Refugee Network, and Trees for Tucson.
Sentinel Peak Brewing Company is located on Grant Road in midtown Tucson. The tasting event runs from 6-8 p.m. and you can make your donation in advance by purchasing tickets using the button below, or tickets may be purchased on the night of the event at the door, pending availability.

Iron John’s Brewing Co.
Beer: “The Figgy Piggy,” a German-style Kulmbacher dark lager.
Special notes: This smooth, rich dark beer leads with the flavor of the local figs boiled in it, but is quickly balanced by the Pumpernickel Rye component that yields a very drinkable malty beer. Elements of dessert without cloying sweetness, the fruit and spice character finishes with a mild floral hop note. Wonderful dark lager for the holiday season.
Malts: German Vienna, German Munich, Crystal, Black
Yeast: German Lager
Adjuncts: Fresh Figs, Beyond Bread Pumpernickel Rye
ABV: 6.8% IBU: 27 SRM: 35
Beer: “Farmhouse Peach Ale”
Special notes: With a base of our flagship beer Salida del Sol Mexican Amber, this beer is slightly spicy with a tart finish that is dry rather than sweet.
Catalina Brewing Co.
“Raspberry Chocolate Imperial Stout”
Special notes: Inspired by the wild raspberry patches that sprinkle our Sonoran Desert Sky Islands, ripe for the picking in late summer. Combined with a blend of roasted malts to bring out the chocolaty balance to accompany the raspberry, this makes for a nice dessert brew to enjoy on these cool fall evenings!
Target ABV: 8.2%
Beer: Our Leap Pale Ale, dry hopped with more Citra hops and copious amounts of peaches!
Beer: “Jacob” is an imperial dark pumpkin saison.
Special notes: Local pie pumpkins roasted to a sumptuous deep, caramel brown. Fresh organic spices added to conditioning tank.
Beer: “Moody Blonde”
Special notes: Using our Not Another (Blonde) as its base we added peaches. It’s a nod to our rescue brethren at Moody AFB.
ABV: 5.2, IBU: 24
