The Made in the Shade Beer Tasting Festival returns for its 22nd year as Northern Arizona’s longest running, most popular craft beer tasting event featuring a superb new venue: the Pepsi Amphitheater.  Pepsi Amphitheater is in a natural forest bowl at the heart of Ft. Tuthill County Park and is Northern Arizona’s largest outdoor venue.  Every dollar raised allows print-disabled people to stay connected to their community – it’s an opportunity to come out for a super-fun weekend and support a needed radio reading service in Flagstaff and surrounding regions.



Everyone enjoys free parking! No pets, except service animals, of course. No firearms. No children. No-one under 21 years old will be allowed into the festival as an attendee, staff member, brewer or vendor. There are no exceptions. Must have ID. There will be no refunds of any kind for any reason. Persons who appear to be intoxicated will be assisted out of the festival.
