Try a new-to-you beer!

What do you mean it’s a retro game show?

Do you remember staying home from school when you were sick and watching “The Price is Right”? Did you ever catch episodes of “The Dating Game” in syndication? Yeah, it’s gonna be very loosely based on that, but in a much less-polished fashion. Brush up on all your local beer knowledge.

These three games have been developed in our very local, very top-secret studio.

Perfect Match: Think “Blind Date,” but with beer. You fill out a very detailed, very scientific* questionnaire, and you are paired with a local beer that is your perfect match. What will it be? Who knows. It will remain a mystery until after you drink it. Think you only like hazy IPAs? Sorry, you might actually pair best with a “dad beer.”

*We are not responsible for the accuracy of this test.

Spin It to Win It: Spin the wheel and answer a beer-related question and win a prize. What kind of prize? Probably another beer.

InQUIZition: Think you know more than some of the city’s seasoned beer industry professionals? Challenge them on their beer knowledge. Win prizes (prizes are still probably more beer. Do you sense a theme here?)

Stephanie has been organizing events since 1998, starting with a series of motorcycle rides through the Arizona desert to support her father’s business. She’s probably crossed your name off a presale ticket list or served you a beer somewhere around town. An undergrad degree in poetry means she has lots of unpractical knowledge about iambic pentameter, while a brief stint as a copy editor for Alternative Press taught her that twenty one pilots is stylized in all lowercase letters. Wanna throw a party in a vacant parking lot? She’s interested. At the onset of COVID-19, Stephanie took on the role...
