Arizona Beer Week

I haven’t posted here in awhile, so let’s take a trip to a far-off place in the desert of the southwestern United States.

This week is Arizona Beer Week and as part of that, the 12th annual Arizona Strong Beer Festival happens on Feb. 18 in Phoenix. It’s a festival dedicated to more hearty, stronger beers (higher alcohol content). Definitely leave the keys at home for that one. However, organizers promise more than just strong beer. Many other craft brewers will make an appearance. Perhaps in Arizona they’re a little less PC than here in Canada (they get away with a festival called the Strong Beer Festival for one. You’d see some complaints about that here). But what was absolutely BAFFLING to me is the venue: Steele Indian School Park.  Maybe I’m wrong, but this just seems like a bad PR move.

Perhaps at Arizona Beer Week, you’ll be able to sample Cave Creek Chili Beer. That’s right, an Arizona Mexican-style beer with one serrano chili in each bottle.
