CRUSHBREW is unique in that it gives festival goers two full days to experience, taste and learn about the latest trends in handcrafted beers, enjoy the many amazing Artisan Distilled Spirits produced by small, regional distilleries, meet the winemakers from small, undiscovered vineyards from around the world – including some of Arizona’s own wineries – and sample the latest hard cider flavors being produced in the top apple regions across the U.S.,” says Deborah Fiorentino of West 54th Productions, which produces the annual CRUSHBREW event. “As if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a plethora of food prepared by top local chefs for attendees to enjoy, delighting their palates in every way imaginable.”

CrushbrewCRUSHBREW is so much more than another craft beer or wine festival. It is a true celebration of the craft beverage movement and the makers and producers that have devoted themselves to it.

We love craft beer, craft distilled spirits, small-vineyard wines, hard cider, and local, hand-crafted food, and it’s our passion for all of the above that inspired the CRUSHBREW Craft Beverage Festival,” adds Fiorentino. “We see it as a unique way to bring all of the devoted producers in this industry together and share them with a broader community. We’ve hand-selected the best producers shaping the market with the mission of connecting them to new audiences, and we anticipate having a lot of fun as a community as we continue growing the craft revolution together.”
