The taproom is located in San Jose Square, a shopping plaza on W. Highway 92 in Bisbee on the Hereford line. There is a large parking lot for your convenience. The plaza is shaped like a horseshoe and we are on the rounded portion of the horseshoe next to the laundromat & cafe. There is a painted sign in a large window that says Beast Brewing & has our growlie character. There are some historical Electric Brewing neon signs hanging in the windows by the front door. We are a bit hard to find so slow down as you approach the area. If you are entering Bisbee on Hwy 92 coming from Sierra Vista, we are the first plaza on the left, after Pizza House & American’s Best Value Inn & Suites. If you are coming from Old Bisbee, we are just 5 minutes south of downtown. At the traffic circle, take the first right towards Sierra Vista on Highway 92. You will pass Safeway on your left. When you come to the traffic light near Safeway (Naco Highway intersects) continue straight. Just up the road, you will pass a gas station and will see a street called Greenlee Dr. The shopping plaza is immediately after Greenlee on the right.

Please note that most of our beers are unfiltered & unpasteurized, as we believe this provides better aroma & flavor. It also makes our product less processed, which is important to us. Our Electric Beer (American Lager) is the exception and is filtered to be true to style. We filter using a natural substance called diatomaceous earth (DE). DE is a soft, crumbly, porous sedimentary deposit formed from the fossil remains of diatoms. Our unfiltered beers are vegan. The use of DE is still up for debate in the vegan community.

The taproom is nature & southwestern themed and showcases work from several local artists that reside in Bisbee, including a large mural with hidden beasts, our unique tap handles & taster trays and large stainless steel bar. There is a large window in between the taproom and brewery gives you a peek at our 30 bbl fermentation tanks.
The taproom features a state of the art growler system called the Pegas Craftap. Our custom-built system allows us to deliver the superior freshness of a draught beer at home or on the trail. In addition to delivering superior taste, our growlers allow us to minimize our carbon footprint. They can be refilled at our facility or used in home brewing.
We are a family and dog friendly facility. The taproom features comfortable seating, flat screen televisions and entertainment. The taproom is available for parties & events. Brewery tours are offered. We have a patio in the front of our facility with views of the San Jose Mountains in Mexico.
Want to see a sporting event or show outside of normal business hours? Just ask and we might be willing to open!

At Beast Brewing, we pride ourselves on running an environmentally conscious facility. Much of our equipment was converted and re-purposed giving it new life. For example, two of our fermentation tanks were formally dairy tanks. We use old fermentation tanks to harvest rainwater & capture waste water, which we run through our heat exchanger when we are brewing to help cool our beer. This allows us to save 3,000 gallons of water per month. We are looking to expand our efforts by incorporating another tank we own which would allow us to save 6,000 gallons per month and to cool the beer entirely without the use of city water. Beast Brewing also donates our spent grain to local farmers.
