Meetup Description: Let's celebrate a year of the Beer Nutz Meetup at the venue of our first Meetup. The Tucson Beer Festival is one not to be missed. Everyone who went last year had a blast and I'm sure are looking forward to this year's. So everyone that didn't come last year, get your butts there!

Tickets went up a little this year but that's expected with the price of gas and all. They are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Designated drivers can buy a ticket at the door for $25. Advance tickets are not available for designated drivers. If you want to go high roller on us, you can buy the VIP ticket for $80 in advance or $90 at the door. I'll be going the general admission way. With General admission you get a souvenir mug, sample tickets to exchange for beer samples from the participating breweries, appetizers supplied by local restaurants, one free hot dog cooked and served by the Tucson Downtown Lions Club, as well as and live entertainment.

Last pour is at 9:30 pm so make sure you get there when the gates open. Also some tips from last year: make sure you have your id out to get a wristband while in line, get there early since a huge line forms and parking is limited, and eat something beforehand. A hot dog won't do much with all the beer samples you'll be trying.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary Beer Nutz!!
