In the two-month countdown to the 38th annual El Tour de Tucson, the official beer of the iconic bicycling event has just been revealed!

I had the opportunity to crack open a can of the “El Tour Blood Orange IPA” last night with Chris Squires of Ten55 Brewing Company who told the story behind these commemorative suds. He also shared information on some special launch events all over town this week leading up to next week’s formal release of what will surely be a new fall beer tradition in Tucson.
