This weekend (March 7 and 8, 2009), the 21st Annual Great Arizona Beer Festival takes place at Tempe Beach Park.
Live music, food and of course beer ”“ some 200 varieties ”“ are on tap, so to speak.
Regular tickets are $40 in advance (hurry!) and $50 at the gate, but that includes entrance, live music, a souvenir mug and most importantly 24 tasting tickets. VIP tickets are also available that provide, well, VIP privileges.
In an act of supreme coolness, all proceeds go directly to Sun Sounds of Arizona, who provide reading / audio services for people who are blind or whose disability prevents them from reading printed material.
So if you are looking for something to do in the Phoenix area this weekend, it’s hard to beat a beer festival for a great cause.
