Last summer, Hotel Congress gave beer-lovers a chance to taste new brews and enjoy snacks from Cup Café.
This year’s summer beer tasting schedule kicks off in May and runs through the end of August.
Tastings are every Saturday at 5:00pm in the Club at Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St., Tucson. The $20 fee covers samples of 5-6 beers, food, and one-on-one time with guest presenters and Hotel Congress Beverage Director David Torkko.
Starting in June, the last Saturday of the month will feature a beer dinner with at least four courses paired with brews for $50/person (tax and gratuity additional).
Guests can buy a package of four tastings of their choice at a discounted price of $75. Tastings are limited to 48 people. For reservations, call the Hotel Congress front desk at 520-622-8848.
