Arizona Breweries: People Love Prescott!

prescott-brewing-co-liquid-amber_We are really excited to have such an ample selection of Arizona breweries at Bites n’ Brews festival this year! Personally, I’m really looking forward to Prescott Brewing Company; specifically the Liquid Amber Ale.

As I’ve mentioned before, I consider myself an Amber drinker. Why do I like the Liquid Amber?  Well, simply put: it’s malty, easy drinking from a can! With woody and caramel-y flavors leading into a light, citrus finish, this beer by Prescott is complex, yet unpretentious.

Along with Prescott, B n’ B will also be featuring Lumberyard, Four Peaks, Barrio and Oak Creek Brewing Companies… all straight out of State 48!

What about the Bites: SALT TACOS Y TEQUILA

saltWhy are we excited to have Salt Tacos y Tequila at B ‘n B this year?

Because TACOS, duh!

But that’s not the only reason. Salt Tacos provides a more than satisfying menu, including some American classics such as their Jumbo Chicken Wings and Sante Fe Burger. These options are not available simply to fill and fluff the edible selection, they’re built-in because Salt cooks them to perfection just as they would their tacos and burritos!

Salt Tacos y Tequila truly has a little somthin’ for everyone! Gain VIP access to the Salt Terrace for tastings of even more beers, even more appetizers and a chance to see the MASSIVE tequila list. Seriously, there’s over 60 to choose from!

Keep up with all 3 stations this Friday (April 7th) for your chance at $15 off your tickets… as it is National Beer Day after all!​

Just Peachy!

FourPeaksPeachAleSometimes you just want something light. Especially as this Arizona heat begins to take over, you’re looking for a beer that’s refreshing and easy to swig.

Look no further than Tempe’s own Four Peak’s Peach Ale. This white-wheat and  peach infused blonde ale pairs perfectly with all things sunny:

Kick off your flip flops… with a Peach Ale.

Start up the BBQ… with a Peach Ale.

Stroll through Bites ‘n Brews Festival… with a Peach Ale!

It’s just sweet enough to recruit an avid cider drinker and just malty enough to please the palette of even the heaviest IPA connoisseur (in the mood for “something different”).

We’re going loco for this local!

Elysian Split Shot: A True “Pick Me Up”

IMG_0244-600x600

In Seattle, Washington, where Elysian Brewery is based, coffee and beer are raised together as brother and sister; each one treasured and nourished equally, yet differently.  Take it from me, a Seattle native (home of the original Starbucks): We take our coffee very seriously. In fact, likely too seriously.

That’s why the “Split Shot” Espresso Milk Stout by Elysian is the perfect way to blend a “go, go, go” mentality into a “woa, woa, woa” experience! With magnum hops, accompanied by rich chocolate, roasted barley and Kiln Coffee, Split Shot is both a punch-in-the-tongue craft beer as well as a charming dessert!

And luckily for us, this seasonal beer releases each Spring… just in time for Bites ‘n Brews this year!

Not much of a Stout drinker? Neither was I! Don’t let the dense, dark color fool you – Split Shot is sure to please any espresso and/or coffee lover!

THE DAILY BREWERS BLOG: Odell 90 Shilling

582x347-odell-90-shilling-beer

As an Amber beer lover, I am very excited to announce that Bites ‘n Brews will come fully equipped with Odell’s medium-bodied Amber-Ale known as the “90 Shilling.” Perfect to enjoy all year round, the 90 shilling carries a deep, yet smooth chocolate aroma and taste! 90 Shilling earned it’s name from the old Scottish method of taxing beers; only the finest, high quality beers were taxed an amount of 90 shillings.

If that doesn’t tell you how coveted and delicious this Odell masterpiece is… maybe tasting it at B ‘n B this April will!

Be sure to check back next week for more reviews and information leading up to the festival! Cheers!
