If there are three things Tucson can’t get enough of this year, it’s craft beer, bicycles, and barbecue. This September, Hotel Congress is providing an entire weekend dedicated to this trifecta.

The three-day celebration, aptly titled Born & Brewed, kicks off with the 4th Annual Tucson’s Beer Cup, continues with the hotel’s inaugural Bikes, Brew, and BBQ pub tour and party, and concludes with Beer Brunches.

Tucson’s Beer Cup, starting at 7 pm on Friday, September 18, features ten local breweries and their best craft beers. For $30 (in advance), ticket holders will receive a commemorative glass, access to the Cup Café gastro-pub snack bar, and the chance to sample 20 craft beers from local breweries. LeeAnne Savage & The Curveball Cowboys will be performing.

Special hotel room packages are available. Tickets can be purchased the day of for $35.

Born and Brewed, Tucson's Craft Beer Weekend at Hotel Congress

As any veteran of a Hotel Congress party knows, the best way to fight the hangover is to pick back up with brunch.

The Cup Café and Maynards Kitchen will help wrap up the weekend with beer brunches on Sunday, September 20. Guests will have the option to choose from a variety of new beer pairings to go with items on their existing menus.
