As you may know by now, new legislation signed into law in May has changed the regulations on growlers. Thanks to Senate Bill 1397, nicknamed the "Liquor Omnibus" bill, breweries will soon be able to fill growlers made out of stainless steel, ceramic, and any nonporous, sanitary material.

The new law goes into effect at midnight Thursday, July 24 and craft breweries all over the state will be celebrating by participating in the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild's Great Growler Fill.

The first-ever Real, Wild, and Woody beer festival debuted on Saturday.
The sold-out Real, Wild, and Woody craft beer festival debuted on Saturday, July 19 at Tempe Center for the Arts, with beer geeks filling the indoor venue in hopes of getting a taste of countless rare and specialty brews. We'd love to console those who didn't nab a ticket fast enough by saying the event featured long lines or overly-hyped brews -- but that would be a lie.

In truth the first event was remarkably well-organized, well-attended, and full of one-of-a-kind beers.

The latest seven chef/mixologist event to add to your dining calendar is The Great American Veg Out. The one-day dining event is "out to prove that vegetables are sexy," a noble cause that doesn't seem so daunting when you check out the list of participating chefs.

The traveling event came to the farm last year in October as well.
Back in April we told you that Outstanding in the Field, the company that hosts unique outdoor dining events in cities from coast to coast, would be returning to Gilbert's The Farm at Agritopia for a one-night event. That dinner, which will feature cuisine from chef Gio Osso of Virtu Honest Craft has been sold out for months.

But there's still some last minute hope for those who want to experience farm-to-table dining in whole new way. The company has recently added a second dinner in Gilbert this fall; tickets are on sale now and you can bet they're probably going to go fast.

Say what you want about their politics, but the French have given us a lot to be thankful for in the realm of food. Quiche, baguettes, escargot, Brie, pain perdu (or for the non-francophiles, French toast)...the list of delicious French dishes on and on.

This Monday, July 14, why not take a meal in honor the legacy of French fare we enjoy today on the country's national day, Bastille Day. For the French, Le quatorze juillet commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution -- for us it's a great excuse to eat, drink, and be merry.
