Urban Ale Trail 2016: Get Ready to Drink Your Way Through Downtown Phoenix on September 10
Short Leash Hot Dogs poured samples of Four Peaks' Hop Knot IPA, White Ale Belgian Style Witbier, and Kiltlifter during the Urban Ale Trail in 2015.
Beer lovers, mark your calendars for Saturday, September 10, because you're not going to want to miss the five-hour walking tour and beer-tasting mashup known as the 2016 Urban Ale Trail.
You’ve heard of – maybe even kind of remember attending – spring’s Urban Wine Walk festivities. Well, the Urban Ale Trail is a lateral event also hosted by Downtown Phoenix Inc. From 1 to 6 p.m., participants can migrate from stop to stop for four-ounce beer samples priced between $1 and $2 each, along with small, complimentary bar snacks while supplies last.
The trail follows the light-rail corridor from downtown Phoenix to the Roosevelt Arts District, and through to Uptown Phoenix. Downtown spots include The Arrogant Butcher, the Duce, Gypsy Bar, and Zpizza, while Roosevelt Row spots include Carly's Bistro, Phoenix Public Market Cafe, and the Vig Fillmore. Uptown Phoenix stops include Southern Rail and the First Draft Book Bar inside Changing Hands — and more stops will be announced as we get closer to the event.
As an added bonus, the first 300 people to hit the District American Kitchen and Wine Bar before the walk will receive a free commemorative growler.
The Urban Ale Trail is free to attend and registration is not required, though Downtown Phoenix Inc. asks attendees to RSVP on the Facebook event page.
