Sample the best beers, wines and spirits The Grand Canyon State has to offer March 1 and 2 at the upcoming Devoured Food and Wine Classic, a gastronomic celebration that in just a few years has blossomed into a cult-like experience.

Hosted by the Phoenix Art Museum, Local First Arizona and Devour Phoenix, the event’s goal is to showcase the fine food and drink producers and purveyors of Arizona while furthering metro Phoenix as a dining destination worthy of international prestige. Devoured features culinary curators and purveyors who support the Arizona food, wine and restaurant industries.

The three Arizona wine-growing regions – Sonoita, Willcox and Verde Valley – will be represented, along with well-known local breweries such as San Tan and Four Peaks, to pair with haute cuisine from many of the state's most influential kitchens.
