Urban Ale Trail 2015

Caution: Fun and Hoppy Times Ahead

Get ready to hike the Urban Ale Trail Saturday, Sept. 12 from 1-6 p.m. Hosted by Downtown Phoenix Inc., this walkable beer tasting tour runs along the light rail corridor from Downtown Phoenix to uptown, and allows participants to sample amazing craft beers and local cuisine throughout the central city.

Similar to Urban Wine Walk, Ale Trail’s sister event in the spring, participating locations offer three 4-ounce samples of beer for $1 or $2, paired with a delicious and complimentary bar snack. Plus, each destination is just a quick walk, bike ride or light rail stop away, so you can easily and safely navigate between tastings.

But before you begin your trek, stop by District American Kitchen and Wine Bar, where the first 300 people in line recieve a free 2015 Urban Ale Trail growler. It’s commemorative (and you can fill it up with your favorite beer along the route.)

Both amateurs and beer aficionados are welcome. We simply encourage you to take the day to explore Downtown Phoenix, socialize and visit new (or longtime favorite) locales. Sample at your own pace and please sample responsibly.
