Mark your calendars, beer lovers, because you're not going to want to miss New Times' second annual NovemBEER Festival. This year, we've rounded up nearly 50 breweries for the celebration of craft beer and brewing, which means you'll have a selection of more than 120 beer options from which to choose.
Sounds good, right? Well, if you want in on the action here's what you need to know.
The 2015 NovemBEER Festival will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, November 21, at the Arizona Center in downtown Phoenix. VIP admission begins one hour earlier (at noon), and both general admission and VIP tickets include the following: beer samples, a commemorative tasting mug, entertainment, and access to the vendor village and food vendors.
Your general admission ticket gets you 30 samples of beer — that's a 2-ounce pour — and VIP ticket holders get 40 samples.
Here's the other good news: Ticket pre-sales start today. Starting at 10 a.m. today and ending at 10 p.m. Sunday, September 20, New Times readers can purchase tickets to the festival online using the promo code "NTBLOG." Pre-sale general admission tickets cost $25 and VIP tickets cost $45.
Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Monday, September 21.
The NovemBEER Festival is open to those 21 and over only. You will be required to show ID at the gate in order to enter.
