Local chefs & breweries join forces for the second annual “Brews & Bites”

A dozen chefs combine their flavors with six of Tucson's breweries.

Tucson Original Restaurants and Baja Arizona Craft Brewers are joining forces to bring “Brews & Bites” at The Highlands at Dove Mountain from 6 – 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 13.

The event was created to showcase a unique tasting menu inspired by Tucson’s growing craft beer scene — and boy, it’s going to be great. 12 local chefs/restaurants are pairing up with six different breweries this year.

Everyone attending will enjoy small plates paired with beer from the featured menu of competing collaborations. Once you’ve had enough to eat and drink, you’ll vote for your favorite.

Tickets are $35 per person.
