PHOENIX — Beer enthusiasts can celebrate 30 years of craft beer in Arizona with the “Real Wild and Woody” beer festival coming to Bell Bank Park on Aug. 6.

Hosted by the Arizona Brewers Guild, the event will be held indoors to stay away from the Valley heat and will feature over 50 breweries from across the state to cool off with.

The festival will include a handful of unique brews from sours, barrel-aged and cask beers.

“The Arizona Craft Brewers Guild is known for putting on some of the best beer festivals in the state, we are excited that they are eager to host this outstanding event at Bell Bank Park,” president of Legacy Sports USA Brett Miller said in a press release.

Inside the state-of-the-art and air conditioned field houses of Bell Bank Park, those in attendance will have the opportunity to sample special craft beers unique with flavor.

The festival will also have some beer offerings that have never been tasted before, according to the release.

Running from 1-5:30 p.m., the festival offers general admission tickets as well as VIP ticket options.

General admission tickets are currently on sale for $65 until July 31 and will then become $80, according to the release. Those tickets include 28 sample pours and a sample cup that’s yours to keep.

The festival also offers a $600 super VIP package that includes two guest tickets as well as a night’s stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Mesa Getaway.
