July 2, 2010
Just got word from Herman Dickson that a micro-brewery in Tucson, Nimbus, is going to revive A-1 Beer. When I was a kid growing up in Arizona A-1 was king. I even have the original A-1 neon sign that hung in front of the Nogales Cafe in downtown Phoenix.

Of course, in their heyday in the 1950s, A-1 commissioned Arizona artist Lon Magargee to do a series of Old West paintings, the most famous being Cowboy's Dream.

The news hits the press tomorrow, but I wanted you to know first.
