Hopefully you haven't beered yourself out yet because one of Tucson's best beer week events is happening this weekend. The first ever Tucson Craft Beer Crawl will take brew enthusiasts to seven different spots around downtown to taste their way through specialty releases from over a dozen different breweries around the state.

Here are some of the rare beers you can expect to find on your drinking excursion:
  • Ten Fifty-Five's AK Saison: a collaboration with Ryan Clark from Augustin Kitchen that uses calamondin fruit harvested from the tree in the middle of the Mercado San Augustin.
  • Two new releases from Sonoran including PNK PPRCRN & FNL SAISON (Pink Peppercorn & Fennel Saison) and SMTH RBL DIPA (Smooth Rebel Double IPA).
  • Borderlands' Scotchy, Scotch Scotch Ale collaboration with Grand Canyon Brewing and the re-release of the popular Horchata Cream Ale. Grand Canyon also has another collab release for the event—a DIPA made with Simcoe hops called Deep in the Green.
  • Pueblo Vida's Belgian Golden Strong Ale: a complex ale with notes of pear, apples, oranges and a peppery spice. 
  • Old Bisbee Brewing Co.'s brand new Holy Grail Indigenous IPA which uses wild hops picked from a unique area in the mountains close to the brewery. 
  • Dragoon's Double Red IPA, which was brewed specially for Arizona Beer Week.

You can try all of those and more as you walk around at your leisure hitting up venues including Tap & Bottle, Hotel Congress, R Bar, Thunder Canyon Brewery, Playground, Pueblo Vida and Borderlands. There you'll use your 20 tasting tickets by filling up a commemorative five-ounce tasting cup over and over again. I might be a writer, but I'm pretty sure that amounts to 100 ounces of beer—good thing everyone is walking, right?

You can buy your tickets via the Beer Crawl's website for $38 in advance or $45 at the event. Then, on Saturday, Feb. 21 you can pick up your map, glass and tickets at Connect Coworking, located at 33 South Fifth Ave, and head on your merry beer-loving way. The event runs from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. and a portion of the proceeds go to Watershed Management Group.
