Arizona's Premier Beer Tasting Festival

Made in the Shade Beer Festival logoJune 8, 2019

Welcome to

The Great Tucson Beer Festival has chosen not to continue with the festival this year. All the money raised went to Sun Sounds of Arizona, a reading and information services that provides the reading of over 200 print publication, to thousands of people across the state who cannot read or hold print material due to a disability. It takes hundreds of volunteers to make that and this event happen. We hope you will continue to support Sun Sounds, the Tucson affiliate at

Discover new beers and enjoy many of your favorite libations and no matter which time of year you attend - spring, summer or fall you can enjoy craft beers from microbreweries and brewpubs, music, entertainment, and an assortment of food.

Each of the beer tasting festivals is a locally-organized fund raising event for Sun Sounds of Arizona. Every penny of the proceeds benefits the local reading and information service for people who are blind or otherwise print-disabled, Sun Sounds of Arizona. For this reason all ticket sales are final and non-refundable.
