Ground Control hosts "Red White and Brew" Festival!

"No Crap on Tap"
OK, so when it comes to beer in the valley, a lion's share of the attention always seems to be on the east valley's Tempe, Chandler, and Gilbert. In the past, this has mainly been due to the lack of options in the west valley (or at least not as many as the east valley has). Well, things are changing, and changing quickly! It seems every week, more breweries are opening their doors, or announcing their future plans to do so. From Freakin' Brewing, Peoria Artisans Brewing, the soon to be 8-Bit Brewing, just to name a few.
Well, one of the west valleys first, and still premier locations to gather for a glass of craft beer, has been Ground Control in Litchfield Park.

Ground Control is more then just a beer stop however. Its a wine bar, gastro pub, coffee shop, and gelateria (that is a shop that gelato, I had to look it up....).

I am not just writing this just to encouraged you to check out Ground Control though, (although, I strongly recommend that you do!) I am writing this to tell you about a festival that they are hosting next weekend, that will not only serve up some amazing beers, but will go to a more then worthy cause as well.

The "Red White and Brew" Festival will take place on Nov 15th, from 2 to 6pm. 20+ beers to be had, experts on hand to chat with, and so much more! This is a festival that both the seasoned craft beer nerd, to the novice beer fan, just getting their feet wet can enjoy, its for everyone. The cost is $35 for 15 4oz pours.

Its not just a great beer festival, like I said, its a fund raiser for a very worthy cause and a great charity. The charity is the "Capt. Jeremy Chandler Scholarship Foundation" (the Chandler family are friends of the owners). They lost their son in the war in Afghanistan in 2005. This foundation raises money for scholarships for active duty military personnel and their families.

 Notable beers that will be on hand: Bells "Hopsolution", Solar Blues "Freedom Tickler", The Perch/Mike Tinker's "My Precious IPA" and SO many more.  I am also told that even Velvet Merkin and 120 Minute may just make an appearance, just maybe......

Tickets are available by clicking here.....

So please, if you are in the west valley, or don't mind driving to it, check out this very worthy fund raising beer festival. Drink great beer, and help a great cause!

Until next time
