That time of year is approaching when Phoenix New Times' NovemBEER festival will close down a stretch of Phoenix, and fill the streets with people and beer. Washington Street between First and Third avenues will be blocked off for the annual event. This year, the party will run from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 10.
What will this year's NovemBEER event bring?
More than 120 beers will be available for sampling. These will come from up to 50 breweries, including regional standouts like Boulevard Brewing Company, Deschutes Brewery, and Pizza Port Brewing Company. Local Phoenix favorites will also be pouring some of their very best, including Mother Brunch Brewing, SunUp Brewing Company, and relative newcomer State 48 Brewery.
