Catalina Brewing Company Mesquite Agave AleMesquite Agave

What is becoming our flagship, this is an American Amber Ale with a taste like no others.  If you’ve lived in the Southwest for any length of time you’ve taken a dry mesquite pod, snapped it, and tasted the wonderful sweetness – these are ground down into a fine powder and added to the mash.  Agave nectar and a hop bill of Northern and Perle hops are added, providing the perfect balance for a smooth finish… let it linger in your mouth before enjoying your next sip. abv 6.3%

Catalina Brewing Company - 0200 IPA0200 IPA

Named for the wee-hour, this is the beer that Brian and Hank were enjoying when the idea of Catalina Brewing Company was born.  0200 is an old-school IPA (before the explosion of hop-bombs… pardon the pun), focusing on a balance of Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial hops into a flavor that is accessible, crisp, and refreshing. abv 5.6%


Catalina Brewing Company - 24HOP Double IPA24 Hop

Leaded and Unleaded

This beer is for the hop-lover in all of us!  Don’t listen to “the big boys” proclaiming that their beer is triple-hopped… this baby is hopped 24 times during the brewing process (hence the name), and then dry-hopped on top of that!  The “Unleaded” version is an Imperial IPA, but those seeking the added boost for that lap at 3 o’clock in the morning will want to try our “Leaded” version which is infused with dark-roasted coffee!  What a wonderful mix! Initial versions utilized the best of what hops remained available in January (off-season for hops), but that may change should this brew become more than seasonal. abv 7.5%


Special Event only to coincide with Epic Ride’s Annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, happening President’s Day weekend in mid-February.  Come visit us in SDMB Town.

Canada del Oro (CDO) Blonde

A light, refreshing, golden ale – perfect for every occasion.  This is a great “introduction beer” for those who are mostly familiar with the lighter-side of commercial beers here in the US and from south of the border.  Cheers and enjoy!  (4.8% ABV, 17 IBU’s)



Catalina Brewing Company La Rosa de Catalina Cream AleLa Rosa

The native cultures have long-known the natural-cooling properties of the prickly pear fruit. Using enough hand-picked prickly pear fruit to taste, the name “La Rosa” could not be more appropriate. Drinks just as smooth as a rosy sunset on the Catalina Mountains. An added bonus is that over time, La Rosa morphs from its rosy pink color into a strawberry-amber color, and a completely changed character! (4.5% abv, 25 IBU’s)


Mesquite Smoked Pecan Dopplebock

The Tucson area is surrounded by several major pecan growers, so in keeping with the local fair, we present this belly-warmer. We start by smoking the raw pecans over mesquite wood. Then, finely ground, they are added to the mash to create a flavorful, nutty taste. Starting as our seasonal holiday brew, our plan is to eventually be able to lager, as a true doppelbock should be. (9% abv, 24 IBU’s)
