The craft beer craze takes center stage in Tucson next month, as the Old Pueblo preps for an onslaught of visitors, special events and beer-centric celebrations.
The 5th Annual Arizona Beer Week returns Feb. 12 – 21, and this year’s nod to Arizona’s unique and exploding craft beer culture has been expanded to nine days, giving revelers an additional 48 hours to drink in the state’s top hops through participation in pub crawls, beer-pairing dinners, meet-the-brewer nights, special collaborations and tappings and more.
Brewers statewide will be showcasing new brews, old standouts, special collaborations and more, and with more than 60 breweries now open across Tucson and southern Arizona, the region is set to host more hoppy happenings than ever before. Here’s just a small sampling of where craft beer conniousseurs can quench their thirst when Arizona Beer Week hits southern Arizona Feb. 12 – 21, 2015.
