Catch these and other Arizona-brewed beers this Saturday at World of Beer in Tempe
Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? Here are a few things we have on the books.

Arizona Great Fifty-Eight

Arizona beer fanatics, get geared up for a pretty special event. On Saturday, August 10, World of Beer in Tempe is tapping 58 beers brewed right here in the Grand Canyon State. The (extremely long) list includes beers from Mudshark, San Tan, Four Peaks, Prescott, Phoenix Ale, and more -- all available under one roof. For the complete list so far, check out the World of Beer Tempe Facebook. As far as eats, the Grilled Cheese Truck will be outside from 1 to 5:30 p.m. so don't worry, they'll have some bread around to suck up all the booze.

Arizona Crawfish Festival

On Saturday, August 10, you can dig into a Cajun crawfish boil at Bison Ranch in Overgaard. The annual event doubles as a conservation effort to remove crawfish from Arizona lakes and streams, which means some of the eats will have been caught no more than 72 hours earlier in Arizona's own bodies of water. But as with any fishing or hunting excursion, the trappers can't guarantee how much they'll bring in, so those who buy their tickets ahead of time ensure that they'll get at least three pounds of fresh crawfish. Backup orders will be overnighted from Louisiana. The event, which will take place from noon to 9 p.m., will also include live music, vendors, a beer garden, and a crawfish-trapping contest. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Arizona Crawfish Company website.
