Phoenix Brewers Invitational Beer Festival will be held! From what I have read, this one is somewhat unique in a few ways. First, it will be held all day, Noon to 10pm. Second admission is free. If you want to drink beer, you will have to buy a $10 glass, plus drink tokens. Tokens are $1 a piece. 1 token for a 3 oz taste, or 4 tokens for a 12oz. That isn't bad people. Considering most festivals are between $30 and $60, you can come here, and for $20, sample 10 beers. Not bad at all if you ask me!
The list of brewers is pretty impressive. Standard Arizona brewers such as San Tan, Grand Canyon, and Papago will be there, as well as Dogfish Head, Left Hand, Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Deschutes, and many others ( full list here).
There will also be food for purchase, from a collection of Arizona's finest food trucks. Beer related vendors and memorabilia for sale, live music and entertainment, craft beer garden and craft brewing demonstrations and other "beer educational" events as well (most of which comes with a VIP ticket purchase for $125). Even a brewers meet and greet. So, this festival is already on our calender, if you care to join Mr and Mrs Czar at the festivities, by all means, drop me a line! It will be a blast!
