I just attended The Great Arizona Beer Festival in my hometown of Tempe, Ariz. with the X-Communicated Mormon Drinking Team. To say the least, it was amazing!
Arizona weather is always fantastic, especially in the Spring. On Saturday, we enjoyed big crowds, sunshine, flip-flops and some amazing beers. On Sunday, the crew returned to much smaller crowds do to rain.. We drank, ate and danced in the rain—which turned out to be the highlight of the festival.
I focused my sampling on beers and breweries I had not tried. I was most impressed with two new Arizona breweries; Sonoran Brewing Company and Sun Up Brewing Company (more to come). Of course there were other favorites there, Prescott Brewing (AZ), Left Hand and New Belgium (CO)…and so many more great brewers. It was truly a great time.
