5 Best Things to Eat and Drink This Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Strong Beer Festival Saturday, February 15

This weekend kicks off both Arizona Beer Week and Arizona Cocktail Week (really, organizers? Do we have to do this every year?), so as you can imagine, there's a whole lot of drinking to do. On Saturday, beer lovers will want to hit the 14th annual Strong Beer Festival at Steele Indian School Park, where scores of breweries from all over the state and country will gather to sample rare brews and other craft concoctions. The fest starts at 1 p.m., and you'll want to get there early if you plan on tasting that hard-to-find beer you've been eyeing on this huge list. Tickets can be purchased online and cost $50. That gets you a 4-ounce tasting glass and 15 tasting tickets.

For additional guidance, be sure to consult our Strong Beer Festival Itinerary.
