Featured Event: Arizona Beer Week

Arizona’s growing thirst for craft beer will be quenched when Arizona Beer Week returns. Arizona Beer Week, in its 8th year,  is the celebration of Arizona craft beer and happens every February. With over 200 events across the state, each hosted by individual breweries, craft beer bars, hotels or restaurants, there is something for everyone. They offer educational behind the scenes, tastings, beer dinners and much more. The 18th Annual Arizona Strong Beer Festival is their premier event and the only event run by the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild during the week.

Get ready to taste craft brews from many of your favorites and a few new breweries. Last year, they had over 400 beers on tap. In 2018, prepare to taste even more rare craft beers from a variety of breweries.
