Casino Del Sol and Dragoon Brewing Company are teaming up for the Summer Craft Beer Tasting Series, beginning on Father’s Day from noon – 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 17.

Throughout the summer Casino Del Sol is bringing in three local breweries, so they can be perfectly paired with dishes crafted by local chefs.

For the first event of the season, a total of eight different dishes and beers from Dragoon Brewing Company will be handed out inside the casino’s convention Center.

Tickets for the first event are $50 per person, which includes gratuity.

If you can’t make it to the first of the series, the Thunder Canyon Brewstillery tasting event is on Thursday, August 16, and Borderlands Brewing Company is joining the fun on Sunday, September 23.
