Summertime in Arizona just screams, “Give me an ice-cold beer and now!” Fortunately, two of our favorite Phoenix dining destinations are offering a few chances to enjoy that ice-cold brew–in addition to delicious food courses–to beat the summer heat.
Phoenix’s super-hip Windsor restaurant is hosting Summer of Brew, a summer brewery series during which diners can enjoy four tasty courses alongside select beer pairings. The first sold-out event was a huge success and there are three more dates in the Summer of Brew series to go. The dinner and beer pairings is $40 per person. Because space is limited, RSVPs are a must by calling 602.279.1111 or e-mailing email@example.com.
