The Tucson Roadrunners are hosting the return of Hockey & Hops on Saturday, November 12. The beer starts flowing at 4 p.m. and the players hit the ice at 7 p.m. This event also happens to fall on Military Appreciation Night.

This year, nine breweries will be pouring some of their favorite beers in the outdoor beer garden located in Eckbo Plaza. Your ticket, which is $50 per person, grants you access to the pregame beer garden, 12 tasting tickets, a commemorative glass, and a ticket to the game against Coachella Valley beginning at 7 p.m.

For this game, Roadrunners Give Back has partnered with Veteran Tickets Foundation (VetTix).

Many of the Tucson Roadrunners’ fundraising efforts that day will benefit VetTix, a foundation that provides tickets to service members and veterans for events that reduce stress and create engagement with local communities.
