Borderlands Brewing Company was started in 2010 by two close friends, Michael Mallozzi and Myles Stone. Both Mike and Myles have been avid home brewers for many years, but they started Borderlands after being involved in careers outside of the brewing industry. Michael obtained a PhD in Microbiology, and does research on disease-causing bacteria at the University of Arizona. Myles is a medical student (also at the U of A), and is working towards his long-time goal of becoming a family physician (amended to family physician/brewer). Both have a passion for craft beer and their community. Nigel Knoy joined Borderlands in 2012 and rose the ranks to become the head brewer in 2013. Nigel’s commitment to quality, consistency, and creativity are an outstanding addition to the Borderlands team. Borderlands is located in Tucson Warehouse Arts District in a building that was built in the early 1900s, and is the former home of Tooley and Sons Produce Company.
