One of Arizona’s favorite craft beer brewers, Huss Brewing Co. celebrates its 5th anniversary with a festival. The “5 Years of Chasing Dreams” festival will be Saturday October 27th at Singh Meadows in Tempe. The brewery was started by Leah and Jeff Huss.
“When we started five years ago, Jeff would brew the beer, filter the beer, deliver the beer and sell the beer out of the back of our very beat up F-150 pickup truck.” says Leah Huss. Huss Brewing now have a Tempe and Phoenix Taproom and legions of fans(myself included) can find the beers throughout Arizona on tap in restaurants and in cans in retailers.
The fun starts at 4 p.m. and will include live music from Huss’s Uptown Taproom GM Mike Chapman and Nashville based Los Colognes will headline. Award-winning Huss’s Family of Beers and seasonal & small batch beers will be poured and gourmet food served from local chefs.
The family friendly event will offer a kid friendly roast your own S’mores kit.
Tickets for the 5 Years of Chasing Dreams festival are $10 with food and beer purchased separately. Kids under 15 are free and tickets can be purchased here.
Singh Meadows is at 1490 E. Weber Dr. Tempe 85281.
As craft beer brewers continue the canning of their beers to protect from sunlight and the convenience where glass bottles shouldn’t go (by the pool, at the lake), the canned beer revolution rolls on with the 8th Annual AmeriCAN Canned Craft Beer Festival on Saturday April 28th.
The 4 hour event heads back to Margret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix and will showcase over 250 canned beers from over 100 local and national breweries from over 40 states. This years festival will include a new Arizona Trail Zone featuring brewers that don’t normally can their beer but have specially for the festival.
