Brews with Hutch: Barrio Brewing Co.

Barrio Brewing Co. sells flights of 5-ounce pours for $6. Patrons may sample any of 12 standard and 4 rotating beers on draft. Story and photo by TROY HUTCHISONPima Post The craft beer scene around the country has taken off and the number of local breweries has climbed over the years in Tucson.  With the number of breweries increasing in the city, I decided to go around town and share my thoughts on some breweries.  First on the list is one of the oldest breweries in Tucson.

Top 9 Mexican food and drinks you must have this fall

Story and photos taken by CARLOS MIRANDAPima Post It's that time of the year again … the fall/winter season.  That means bring all the food, desserts and drinks our way. This season, these are the nine Mexican/Hispanic food, desserts and drinks you should try/enjoy at least one time. Posole Posole is a soup that has some type of shredded meat, pork or chicken. It also has lots of hominy, which are whole kernels of dried field corn. Sometimes people add pinto beans. Posole is best served with toasted buttered bread or tortilla. And you don't have to, but people like to garnish the soup with lime, cilantro, green onion or regular onion, cabbage, radishes and spicy chili flakes. This dish is best to eat on a nice cold day or even at family gatherings. Buñuelos B...

‘Prisoners of the Ghostland’: a masterclass on how not to direct movies

Story and image by Javier Dosamantes 'Prisoners of the Ghostland'Directed by: Sion SonoRating: NRRun time: 1 hour, 53 minutesShowing at The Loft Cinema Back in 2010, chicken franchise KFC launched the Double Down. It was a chicken sandwich that instead of having two pieces of bread to hold together the meat and fixings ... had two fried chicken fillets. The anatomy of the sandwich looked like this: a fried chicken fillet on the bottom, cheese, bacon and cheese in the middle, and topped off with another fried chicken fillet. It was a deliciously over-the-top and decadent idea. But without the bread to tie up the ingredients, the Double Down was incredibly messy and the flavors were too intense and chaotic instead of complementing each other.  It feels like good-tast...

Check out free Pima art exhibit ‘Egress’

By Alex Jimenez Pima Community College will host Egress - an art exhibit with work from three London-based artists.  Admission to the exhibit is free and is being held at the Louis Carlos Bernal Art Exhibit on PCC’s West Campus through Oct. 8. The art displayed is all made on paper and was completed during the COVID lockdown by Alice Browne, Anthony Banks and George Little.  All three of the artists attended the Royal College of Art in London. “Each artist explores abstracted themes about London from ‘Leftovers’ left on tables to the surrounding English environments to imagined ideas about San Sebastian to Orbits,” said gallery director David Andres in the exhibit introduction. “‘Egress’ is but a snapshot of what was produced.” George Little’s art uses restaura...

Photo courtesy of Pima College Athletics Pima Community College outside hitter Jessica Bright-Schade has accrued over 70 kills and nearly 100 digs. By Nate Martinez Pima’s volleyball team did not have an easy schedule last season, but outside hitter Jessica Bright-Schade and the Aztecs made history by advancing to their first national tournament. Due to COVID, it was difficult to find ACCAC teams that could play regular season games, leaving Pima with a slate of NJCAA Division I competition. Despite the elevated level of competition, the Aztecs, who compete in Division II, were able to secure a spot in the NJCAA tournament in April. The team lost to Grand Rapids Community College in the consolation rounds, but given the circumstances, the run was amazing. This yea...

Story and image by Javier Dosamantes "Princess Mononoke"Directed by: Hayao MiyazakiRating: PG-13Run time: 2 hours, 13 minutesStream on HBO Max with subscription or rent on Amazon Prime for $11.99 Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli's co-founder, has garnered a devoted following worldwide and is widely acclaimed across the anime and cinematic worlds.  I, however, was not part of the Academy Award - winning filmmaker's loyal fan base. Until now. Not because I didn't like his work. I just hadn't seen any of it. I know, I know, it seems like I'm the only film geek who doesn't revere Miyazaki's work. That all changed when I went to a screening of “Princess Mononoke” as part of The Loft Cinema's “Cult Classics” series.  “Princess Mononoke” — written and directed by Miy...
