SPBC nano brewery is about providing a constant variety of exceptional hand-crafted beers in a casual setting with friends.

STRETCH REWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!! We have reached our goal and WILL fund Sentinel Peak Brewing Company's Kickstarter Project!!

We are grateful and amazed and thankful for reaching our goal with 7 days left in our campaign. SOOO, we will now offer these "Stretch Rewards" for anyone who pledges (and has already pledged) at the "Coach Ernie Pantuso" level and above:

If we reach $35,000 by our end date/time on 5/31, everyone who has a growler and/or T-shirt coming to them will receive a LIMITED EDITION "I MADE SENTINEL PEAK BREWING COMPANY HAPPEN" type of logo placed on their growler and/or t-shirt. Only those who supported us on Kickstarter will get these items, we will not sell or give these to anyone else... as a result, we will know who you are every time you walk into SPBC and you will get the proper thanks (and hugs if you so choose) from all of us for making this dream happen.

We couldn't do it without you. Let's not stop now! Spread the word!

Who

The brewer, the builder, and the cowboy….more widely known as Jeremy Hilderbrand, Matt Gordon, and Taylor Carter joined forces early in 2012 with the idea of taking Jeremy’s home brewing habit to another level. All long-time Tucsonans and firefighters with deep community roots, the three plan to use their diverse backgrounds and skills to bring Sentinel Peak’s award-winning craft beers into the Tucson sun.

What

Like fine art, music, and food, great beer brings people together and Sentinel Peak Brewing Company aims to provide outstanding regional interpretations of classic beer styles from around the world in a relaxed setting where families, friends, and neighbors can gather over a pint…or two.

Sentinel Peak will offer three flagship beers—the gold medal-winning Monsoon Dunkel, the classic 1811 Desert Blonde, and the Salida del Sol Mexican Amber—along with a rotating selection of vetted seasonal brews, which could include our Haboob IPA, Gullywasher Brown, Heat Wave Hefeweizen, Microburst Belgian White, Summer Swelter Citrus Ale, as well as a Chocolate-Coffee Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Pumpkin Ale, Oktoberfest, or Winter Porter.

When

Now. Tucson is on the verge of an artisan beer renaissance. People are thirsty for local, high quality products with a conscience and Sentinel Peaking Brewing Company is eager to meet the demand.

Where

A mid-town commercial location just east of the beloved University of Arizona, will allow Sentinel Peak to offer beer and small plate items to a broad section of the greater Tucson area, and help us keep a finger on the pulse of the city.

Why

As firemen, Matt, Taylor, and Jeremy understand and believe in the power of community and see the opening of Sentinel Peak Brewing Company as an extension of their commitment to serve Tucson. With that in mind, the guys are deeply committed to creating as positive a footprint as possible by hosting and sponsoring charity events, repurposing the spent grains to local farmers, and going solar as soon as possible.

Sentinel Peak knows that, as a city, we’ve been through some tough times, but believes that together we can look toward the future and raise a glass to the good things in life.

How

This is where you come in. We already have an ideal location locked down and our 3-barrel system (that’s ninety gallons) in place. Plus, we are waist-deep in the licensing process, which continues to move forward. But there’s more work to be done! With your support, we will be able to complete the renovations and buy the additional equipment needed to reach our ultimate goal—opening Sentinel Peak Brewing Company’s doors.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges we see with completing our nanobrewery revolve around the issues we may find during the renovation. We are nearly complete with all of the necessary permits and licensing and are working closely with the City of Tucson to achieve our goal; however, some repairs and upgrades are still unknown to us.
