Friends with Benefits

A year ago Tempe gained one hell of a beer-focused bar when World of Beer sprang up with its 20 taps and countless bottles of brews from around the world. To celebrate its first year of business in the state (this fall Arizona welcomes two more WoB locations) the bar hosts a birthday bash for its BFFs (best Facebook friends).

The Allocated Anniversary Facebook Festival will be an exclusive event, since the guest list will only include those who join and RSVP on the event's Facebook page. Lucky for you poseurs out there, the page is public, because you won't want to miss the impressive six beer line-up. The list includes Canada's Brasserie Dieu du Ciel Rigor Mortis and Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout.

Raise a glass to World of Beer, 526 South Mill Avenue in Tempe, on Thursday, August 8, starting at noon. The party will go until 2 a.m. RSVP at
