Some pretty cool stuff happened in the year 2013. We got a new pope and a new royal baby. The Geico “HUMP DAYYY!” camel commercial came out. The word “twerk” was even added to the dictionary.

But the most impactful 2013 moment of all was when Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. opened her doors for the first time.

Now, nine years later, we’re celebrating the anniversary of our grand opening the best way we know how: with awesome food, great music, and a whole lot of beer. From September 1-5, we’ll be tapping nine different beers, hosting some beloved local bands, and bringing back a few of our most-requested food items. Here’s the full calendar of beer releases and events:
