The Iron John's Brewing Family

About Us

Iron John's Brewing Company (IJBC) is a local, family-owned micro-brewery based in Tucson, Arizona. Founded in 2014, IJBC started brewing at its original Plumer Avenue location using a repurposed soup kettle from a prison! Despite the meager beginings, IJBC still produced some of the most innovative beer Tucson has ever experienced.

We've expanded a bit since those early days, opening a taproom and brewpub, moved and scaled up our brewing operations, merged with popular Tucson burger joint Monkey Burger, and expanded into the world of craft cocktails. We are now proud to serve you at three Tucson locations, each offering its own unique menu, environment and experience.

At IJBC our beer is always fresh and our food is never frozen.

We're small. We're local. And we're on a mission to win your love.

Come join us and experience the IJBC difference.

Oh, and cheers to #damngoodbeer! ​

Went in for some beer and pizza. Both pizza and beer were fantastic. Definitely worth a stop for any beer lover. I’m also very excited to try the pork belly flight next time I stop by.

Went for a beer, which was as good as advertised . The surprise was the plate of "Garlic Knots" A real winner.

Really impressed by this spot. We got the Bianca and the Truffle Wagyu Burger. The Bianca had a perfectly substantial crust, not too doughy, with a stellar crunch. Salty, lots of yummy fats from the pesto, prosciutto, and ultra crispy bacon. The truffle Wagyu Burger avoided the most common pitfall of truffle foods - it was not too truffle-y. Instead the marbled beef, sauteed greens and mushrooms stole the show. Mild, smooth, and too easy to smash the whole thing in one sitting. Top things off with their cocktails and beer and I've got my new go to spot. Let's blow this place up, Tucson!

Solid choice for dinner! My husband and I split the truffle wagyu burger and the arugula pizza-- both to die for. The employees were all super nice and seemed really happy to be there. Nice big booths and a beautiful bar too. Loved it! Keep it up!

Great cocktail with fresh ingredients. The bartender was chatty. It is a relatively quiet indoor environment with outdoor seating available as well.
