Two Decades of Celebrating the Best Brews in Arizona and Beyond
Since its inaugural event in the year 2000, the Arizona Strong Beer Festival has been one of the state’s most anticipated annual events. This year, the festival is celebrating its 20th year and is expected to make it an anniversary to remember. As one of the top craft beer festivals in the United States, the Arizona Strong Beer Festival is a must-do experience for any beer lover.
While one of the event’s primary goals is to offer a fun, dynamic festival to celebrate the best in craft brewing, it also serves another very important purpose. Each year, funds raised during the event go towards the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild, a professional organization dedicated to establishing favorable business conditions for Arizona-based breweries. With help from the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild, the state’s beer culture has flourished.
Last year, there were more than 500 beers available on tap at the festival, and the 2020 event is slated to offer even more brews to choose from. Sip your way through an amazing selection of craft beer from more than 130 of the best breweries in Arizona and all over the United States. With a line-up that features everything from the classic to the ultra-rare, the Arizona Strong Beer Festival has something to satisfy every taste.
