The tap room at 1912 Brewing Co. 

1912 Brewing Co.

Get ready for fireworks! Tucson's latest brewhouse 1912 Brewing Co. plans to open on Independence Day. The westside spot founded by local homebrewers Allan and Alicia Conger will start with four house taps: an Irish blonde, Irish red rye, India Pale Ale and "something else that stands out." 

The 1,000-square foot taproom will also serve local wines, and feature a guest tap with breweries from across the state. There are also plans to make cider and mead. 

The Congers have been working on the 3,600-square-foot space near West Grant Road and the I-10 freeway since December, installing a copper bartop and bringing in a 3.5 barrel brewing system from Portland Kettle Works. 

The couple is working on bringing in food trucks like Mr. Cookman's soul food to provide bar eats. They'll open their doors noon to 10 p.m. on July 4.  

You can find the Star's digital food writer Andi Berlin at a taqueria near you, taking tiny bites and furiously scribbling into an old notepad.
