So I don't know how I go talked into it but I will be heading off to Yuma, AZ at the end of the week. Now in the past when I have been there I have pretty much struck out when it comes to finding a good beer. So any southern AZ natives out there that know of a good brew pub or at least bottle shop in or around Yuma that I can get some quality beer?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

It's been my experience that the military towns in AZ have a good selection of quality beer at the grocery store.

heck, I think the first place I found San Miguel in Arizona was at the Safeway in Sierra Vista (Ft. Huachucha).

sorry I can't help with Yuma...

Been a while, but they're still around, unlike Monarch. Last time I was in Yuma, my ice cream cone melted between the restaurant and the car, about a 100 foot walk. I truly believe it is hotter than Las Vegas or Phoenix.

So I just moved to Hell as well (Yuma Az) and I am planning on starting to brew in the winter season since the heat is so ridiculous here. I am looking for anyone brewing in this area to meet up with or talk to learn from and hang with.

I'm heading down to see my dad for chirstmas and i'm going to bring him some home brewing stuff to get him started. I need to find a home brew supply store and stuff. I'd be down to hang and talk about brewing.

I'll be PCS-ing out there sometime this summer. Can you give me a reconnoiter of the area's attractions (aka pubs and homebrew supply shops)? Does the water get cold enough for wort-cooling purposes? Does the price of water adversely affect the economy of brewing?

Not sure about local attractions in Yuma...but

As far as the water goes, it kinda depends on th thouse. many of the older homes here have plumbing that makes it so you have very warm, or hot tap water. No cold water in the summer, so a chiller would need to be done with an ice bath (what i do). The water quality varies here depending on the area, some homes are on wells (like mine) in the city you would be using the municipal supply. If you are on a well, you might be able to use the water from the well (I do) and it works great. Bottled water is cheep..so if you have to use bottled water, it won't break the bank. Actually around here, there are water filling vending machines that you can fill a 5 gallon bottle with for pretty cheep...
