The Baja Beer Festival is showcasing exclusive Arizona beers and setting up in downtown’s Armory Park from 2 – 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.
The beers are coming from some of Arizona’s best breweries, and the list has yet to be confirmed, but this year’s focus is on IPAs.
This time around, the festival is teaming up with the Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT), whose chefs are creating the entire menu at four separate food booths.
Live music from local bands will set the tone nicely, and the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild is bringing the fun with some lawn games and activities.
Depending on what kind of experience you’re looking for, the tickets range from $10 to $60.
At each food booth, all four teams of Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT) chefs will be collaborating with different restaurants and a local brewer for a beer-focused menu.
Mat Cable (Fresco), Devon Sanner (Carriage House), Jim Murphy (Kingfisher), and Janet Jones (Tanque Verde Ranch).
Ken Foy (Culinary Graduate/Dante’s Fire), Max Provost (Mercenary Chef), Drew Burk (Dante’s Fire), Lindon Reilly (Big Daddy’s Kitchen), and Daniel Padilla (Fresco).
Gary Hickey (Charro Steak), Matt Kraiss (Thunder Canyon Brewstillery), and CJ Hamm (Saguaro Corners).
Travis Gary Peters (The Parish), Ben Forbes (Forbes Meat Co.), Matt Gutierrez (Mercenary Chef), and Obadiah Hindman (Mountain Oyster Club).
Water bottles or containers will be allowed into the festival, and in an effort to conserve and create a “green” event the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild will set up a self-serve water station.
Armory Park is located across the street from the Children’s Museum in downtown at 222 S. 5th Ave. To purchase your tickets, visit bajabeerfestival.com.
