Two breweries and a wine bar are set to celebrate anniversaries in Tucson this weekend.
Dillinger has two days of celebrations planned, both Friday and Saturday, with three barrel-aged beers ready for release. Offerings include Dillinger’s Public Enemy Imperial Stout aged 8 months in a Whiskey Del Bac barrel, a Public Enemy aged 8 months in a Hops and Vines ruby port barrel and the Cherry Sugar Mama, an English strong aged in a Whiskey Del Bac barrel, sitting on a bed of cherries.
Fat Noodle will serve the eats from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday. Green Fairy Pastries will be there from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday.
Sentinel Peak’s big event will run all day Saturday (11 a.m.-10:30 p.m.) and will include the return of its Anniversary Strong Ale, as well as carne asada, chicken and pork tacos, and Sonoran hot dogs to eat.
Sentinel's 4-year anniversary comes on the heels of the brewery announcing that it will be upgrading from a 6-barrel system to a commanding 15-barrel system and relocating production of its beer to a warehouse just south of downtown. Its midtown brewpub will remain open.
Revel, which sits just off of the south end of North Fourth Avenue, will have complimentary wine tastings from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday. There will be wine and beer specials throughout the evening and a champagne toast at 10 p.m.
Velvet Panthr will provide the music from 10 to midnight.
