Barrio Brewing's David Figueroa, left, and Pete Glynn weigh and package cans of Tucson Blonde at the company's facility at 800 E. 16th Street. Tucson Blonde can be found at more than a dozen retailers around the city.
Freshly poured cans of Tucson Blonde receive their aluminum tops at Barrio Brewing, which is still trying to perfect its canning process. "We are just trying to make sure we can do this - it's kind of intimidating," says owner Dennis Arnold.
Dennis Arnold shows off three of the new tanks at the new brewery. With parts of the old brewery, the new setup will boost Barrio's capacity to 40,000 31-gallon barrels a year, from 4,000 now. When production starts by early April, Barrio will start ramping up to 10,000 to 12,000 barrels.
