Taste Chandler this Oktoberfest

It’s has been a whirlwind of activity this past month as construction on Gangplank 3.0 is getting underway and the widening of Arizona Avenue is coming a end.  This weekend is the 3rd Annual San Tan Oktoberfest.  It starts at 2pm and goes until 11pm and costs $10.

If you like beer this is YOUR event. San Tan Brewing, Papago Brewing, Sonoran Brewing, Grand Canyon Brewing, Mudshark, Sun Up, and Thunder Canyon will all be in the beer garden; and a lineup of Crescent Crown’s marquee craft beers will also be available, including Ska Brewing, Avery Brewing, Fat Tire and The Lost Abbey.  Holy Brew Awesome.

There will be live music from Take Cover as well as beer olympics, a strong man competition, a sexy beer maid contest, a bratwurst eating contest, as well as kid-friendly activities and games, including bounce houses tricycle races and bag toss.

The following week is TasteChandler‘s culinary festival.  You will probably see the commercials airing this week!


The best part about both events is being able to crash at the historic San Marcos Hotel after the event.
