There’s no shortage of controversy over candidates in our upcoming election, both nationally and locally.

But there’s another kind of (local) election coming up: The battle over the best Tucson craft beer. And man, if you think political infighting is bad regarding the presidential race, well, that’s nothing compared to how riled up folks get when it comes to their favorite brew. 

Actually, Club Congress’s fifth “Born and Brewed” celebration, coming up this Saturday, Sept. 17, has always been fun, safe and totally chill.

A dozen Tucson breweries will compete for the titles of “Best Flagship Beer,” “Best Specialty Beer” and “People’s Choice.” This year’s judging panel includes Kevin Bosley of Odell Brewing Company, all the way from Fort Collins, Colo.

General-admission voters will get a scrumptious plate of “special eats” and then traipse among tables to taste each brewery’s beer before voting. VIP participants will also be traipsing, tasting and voting, but they’ll also have access to a luxe lounge and special buffet (including a smoked pig and dessert).

Congress is also offering reduced-price admission for designated drivers, who’ll also get a delicious food plate, plus an undisclosed take-home gift (mysterious!) and, according to the Club Congress PR team, “the joy of getting … friends home safely.”

Born and Brewed is 6 to p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. Regular tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of; VIP tickets are $50; and designated-driver tickets are $15.
