It's Arizona Beer Week everyone, and what better way to celebrate than drifting into one of the local El Charro Café locations to try one of the restaurant's new signature beers.
The 1922 Amber Ale brewed by Barrio Brewing Co. and available at all five El Charro Café locations is said to be "a premium two row malt with two levels of American crystal malt and touch of light chocolate malt which gives the beer a slightly caramel taste balanced with Columbus and Cascade hops for a great finish."
In other craft-beer news, 1702 has started serving its own house-made beer. I noticed one of the place's porters on the menu there last weekend, which was going for $2.50 for a five-ounce glass. 1702 is also holding events every night this week in celebration of Arizona Beer Week, with an event tonight featuring Widmer Brothers beers and giveaways. More on that here.
