Amber Alert

Tight-Shirt Guy says, “Dude, the AZ Strong Beer Festival is February 16. Whoa, paaar-tay.” As Beer Purist Guy pontificates about 6.5 percent alcohol content and exotic hops and barleys, Tight-Shirt Guy shrugs and says, “Hey, we’re gonna meet chicks, right?”

Jerry Gantt, executive director of the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild and a Beer Purist kinda guy, says the fest “provides an opportunity for people to taste a wide variety of beers in one convenient location.” And, yes, Tight-Shirt Guy, you’ll meet chicks, but they’ll probably have refined palates. Look it up, dude, or head for Circle K.
