Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company

Gentle Bens Brewing

Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company is part of the college experience at Tucson’s University of Arizona. Located on campus, the brewery sports the usual pub fare and attracts the usual college student crowd. One of the highlights about Gentle Ben’s is that they sell beer to go, which seems to be common at bars in the Tucson area. Their menu consists of sandwiches, burgers, etc., which are served in their dining room or their surprisingly nice patio.

Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company – Bottom Line

Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company is a college bar, albeit a nice college bar, but there is nothing particularly special about the brewery, the beer, or the food here. For our money we would rather go across the street to Frog & Firkin for better atmosphere or No Anchovies for Pizza and some Nimbus Brewing Company beers.

Bottom line is go to Gentle Ben’s if you want to experience University of Arizona’s student body at it’s finest and get some “OK” beer and food.
