OK, its still a ways away, but I want to give you guys plenty of heads up on this one. One of the best beer festivals in the state of Arizona (I feel), this year, the 3rd Annual Ameri-Can Canned Craft Beer Festival is coming to Scottsdale on May 18th, noon to 6 pm! Held at the Scottsdale Civic Center, this year more the 60 breweries, from over 20 states, will be serving up over 150 beers, some never before seen in the state! Pre-sale tickets are $25, VIP tickets for $100. Day of tickets are $35.
Purchase tickets here...
There will be judging, and an awards ceremony, live music (I'll post a list as soon as its available) , food truck court, VIP tent, Beer Science Garden, and even some Beer Olympic games! Oh, and just an FYI, this is a 21 and over event (no exceptions), so don't plan on bringing the kiddos.
(complete (so far) list here).
So, if you are one of those folks that believes beer just isn't as good in a can (like I wrote about here), well, do yourself a favor, attend this festival, and have your mind changed!!!! I really hope to see you there!
A portion of the proceeds for this event will go to benefit the Scottsdale Cultural Council. To learn more about them, visit www.sccarts.org.
I will update you all when I have more info, so check back!
