If you are 21+ with a valid I.D.; head on down to Tempe Beach Park on Saturday, March 1st from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (last pour is at 5:45 p.m.) to The Great Arizona Beer Festival!
Tickets range in price from $10 to $85 which only includes your beer (lesser prices for your designated driver, higher prices for those of you sampling the beers). Food is available to purchase at the festival and the website says to "bring extra cash to the Great Arizona Beer Festival to satisfy your hunger". Parking is free.
Not a beer drinker, but more of a wine conissuer? La Bocca Wine Garden is is included with a general admission price (you can use your sampling tickets to taste wine rather than beer).
There will be live entertainment, brewers, exhibitors, and fun!
P.S. The Great Arizona Beer Festival will be heading to Flagstaff in June and Tucson in September!
