to the fun, adult-themed activities and beverages available on the spot.
Join thousands of people gathering at the festival with friends and

table at the festival to create a fun array of party drinks options. With
something for everyone, you’ll never get bored of a single second at the
Arizona Annual Craft Spirits and Cocktails Festival.
Love a Good
Cocktail or Craft Beer?
If you’re a connoisseur of good cocktails and craft
beer, then you’ll be tickled pink to learn that the Annual Craft Spirits
and Cocktails Festival is home to around 150 high-end cocktails and alcoholic
beverages. You’ll find everything from spirits like whiskey, vodka, moonshine,
mescal to alcoholic kombucha, mead, and, of course, craft beer.
Distillers from the Arizona Craft Distillers Guild gather at the
festival to wow crowds and make a name for themselves. In case you’re not a
hard-liquor person, a choice selection of wine and beer is also available to
quench your thirst, as well.
So you don’t drink too much on an empty stomach, the festival also
serves a wide range of tantalizing food to satisfy your taste buds. Music is a part
of the proceeding, as well, with a live music lineup to be announced soon on
the official website.
There will also be a Tiki lounge to chill with other people if you
feel like it. After a fun day of drinks and party activities, you can sit back
and relax enjoying the beautiful Arizona sunset. For six hours straight, you’ll
be in for a good time!
You’ll Need to Get a Hotel Room
After sipping on all the delicious cocktail concoctions and craft
beer, you’ll need a place to hit for the night. Since you could be a bit
topsy-turvy by the time the festival has ended, you should find
hotels near Gilbert, AZ where the festival takes place. There are many
fantastic hotels available in Gilbert, Phoenix, with various price points that
you can opt for based on your budget. However, there are two hotels that we
found to be fantastic and won’t hesitate to recommend.
The first is the Hyatt Place Phoenix/Gilbert, which has all the
features and amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel. The rooms are
large and spacious with lots of natural sunlight during the daylight. At night,
the view of the city skyline from the top floors is gorgeous. There is also a
swimming pool that you can take a dip in to wash away the tiredness after the
long day at the festival. There is also a fully furnished gym that you can use
The second hotel that we must recommend is the Cambria Hotel Phoenix.
Located at the Chandler Fashion Center, this hotel provides stylish
accommodations for guests that come along with excellent amenities and
services. You’ll find total relaxation in a boutique setting.
Recover the Next
Once you’re done with the festival, there are still plenty of things
to do around the city, so there’s no need to rush off after the
festival. Recover the next day by unwinding with some relaxing activities.
Visit the Freestone Park or the Riparian Reserve to lose yourself in the
natural beauty of the vast Arizona wilderness. If hiking is not your cup of
tea, you can always go for a game of golf at the Greenfield Lakes Golf Course.
Then, of course, there is always the fun option of shopping or simply walking
throughout the city.
Some Delicious Food
If you want to
appease your taste buds, you can go down to the Arriba Mexican Grill for some
delicious Mexican grub or visit the Blue Wasabi if you fancy a delectable
choice of delicious, authentic Japanese sushi. If you fancy Italian cuisine,
then that’s an option as well if you pay a visit to the Brio Tuscan Grille.
