Join us for the 25th Annual Great Arizona Beer Festival
Saturday, March 2rd from 2-6pm (last pour at 5:45pm)
This craft beer tasting extravaganza will showcase over 200 brews from more than 50 breweries from across the state, country and around the globe each providing samples of their proudest brewing achievement. As a locally-organized fund raising event, all proceeds benefit Sun Sounds of Arizona, a non-profit radio reading service helping 49,000 people in Arizona with print disabilities.
A hugh thanks to everyone for joining us at the pre-festival Pub Crawl, Feb. 23rd, and helping us raise money for Sun Sounds of Arizona. LIKE us on Facebook to see all of the amazing photos.

Look for the GAZBF Shuttle, which will run from 8:30am-7pm on Saturday, March 2, and take you to the Front Gate entrance of the Festival.
