The Strong Beer Festival highlights a variety of strong beer concoctions brewed by Arizona's craft breweries.

A four-ounce tasting mug holds each sample allowing attendees to pick and choose which beers to taste using 15 tickets with the general admission fee.

As one of Arizona's largest events, the Strong Beer Festival gathers hundreds of thirsty beer drinkers. The taps continually pour an assortment of flavors of ales, stouts, lagers and ciders, to name a few. The festival is not without food vendors and music performers to entertain the crowd.
