NEW! BARREL + BOARD
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25
After aging to perfection, BARREL + BOARD will make its debut in the 38th year of Arizona’s Tastiest Fundraiser. This tribute to Beer, Whisky + Cheese will feature 8 local craft breweries pairing their own beer with a complimentary cheese dish, additional craft beer from Angel’s Trumpet Ale House, rare cheeses from Whole Foods Market, samples of whisky and educational demos/seminars.
Whether you’re a fan of crisp lagers, hoppy pale ales or malt-driven darker styles, the perfect cheese pairing is out there. If you don’t already know that beer + cheese go together, BARREL + BOARD will be the perfect wake-up call to this match made in heaven. And, what better way to wash them down than with a barrel-aged spirit?
Tickets will include unlimited cheese samples and other tasty bites, 4-oz beer and 1-oz whisky samples and a souvenir tasting mug. Sample craft beer paired with some of the Valley’s favorite cheesy delights and cast your vote for your favorite pairing!
