Two breweries and a wine bar are set to celebrate anniversaries in Tucson this weekend.

Dillinger Brewing, 3895 N. Oracle Road, and Revel wine bar, 416 E. Ninth Street, have both reached one year, while Sentinel Peak Brewing at 4746 E. Grant Road will be hitting the 4-year mark. 

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.
