There will be an Oktoberfest and Homebrew Challenge on October 22, 2011 @ Thunder Canyon Brewery in Tucson, AZ. All proceeds go to charity. The winning beer of the Homebrew Challenge will be put on a guest tap at Thunder Canyon Brewery with all sales of that beer going to charity. The event is being put on by the union for the Northwest Tucson Firefighters. All for charity; $20 in advance, $25 the day of. Most of the other beer festivals in Southern Arizona run 2-3 times this. This is definitely a bargain and for a good cause. In addition to home brew, there will also be several micro breweries dispensing beer. It looks like they are going to have several very good breweries on tap (Firestone Walker, Alaskan Brewing, Four Peaks, Left Hand, Ska, New Belgium, Big Sky, San Tan, Ballast Point, Breckenridge, Thunder Canyon, Barrio, just to name a few). Live music and food as well.
I will have six beers on tap at this event and they are 6 of my best beers to date. I will be serving a Munich Helles, Oktoberfest, Oatmeal Stout, American Amber, English IPA, and American Wheat. It is going to be hard to give all of this beer away.
