Hoppy days are here again Saturday, Oct. 28 from 1-5 p.m.

Downtown Phoenix Inc.’s annual Urban Ale Trail returns for its 9th year on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023 and it’s Halloween-themed!

Long celebrated as a foodie paradise, Downtown Phoenix also boasts one of the most extensive and diverse craft beer scenes in Arizona. Don’t miss your opportunity to taste (and sip) your way through some of the state’s best bars and restaurants.

Each location will be serving three varieties of 4-ounce beer samples for $5 each, plus a complimentary snack. There is no registration necessary, and the Trail can be done in any order.
