Great Arizona Beer Festival

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.

 

Getting There

Tempe Beach Park is located at the corner of northwest corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe, AZ. If coming on the Metro Light Rail, exit at the Mill Ave. stop in Tempe and walk north to the front gate entrance facing Rio Salado Parkway.

Parking

We think free parking is important. To continue to provide free parking, we have moved our Shuttle location to the ASU parking lot at Rio Salado Parkway and Packard Drive (at the northwest corner of Rural Road and Rio Salado Parkway.) Look for the GAZBF Shuttle, which will run from 8:30am-7pm on Saturday, March 3, and take you to the Front Gate entrance of the Festival.

For more information and to purchase tickets, GO HERE!!

    That doesn't sound like a bad idea, Amber. It seems like when I've gone to the meetups at festivals like this, I often never meet with too many of the group. I'll go for lunch; maybe some more will join. What's a good place? How about the Mellow Mushroom on Mill?

      Sorry I missed out! I woke up Sat morning with the worst pulled muscle in my neck. I couldn't move! I took a muscle relaxer and stayed in bed all day! It still hurts but at least I can move this evening. So sad I missed it so I'll have to make up for it next time.

    Hey guys. Got to the long line and realized these festivals are just not my thing. Don't like waiting in a bunch of lines--especially when it's hot and sunny out. I'll see you guys soon.

      Too bad. The lines inside were nearly zero. Least crowded beerfest in memory.

    Would love to but it's a 21 & over event, so my son can't attend. Next time hopefully.
