"Mother Road Gets Real" Real Ale Festival
Mother Road Brewing Company is proud to present the second annual “Mother Road Gets Real” Real Ale Festival. Seating is limited and tickets will go on sale online late April. Real Ale, or cask-conditioned beer, is unfiltered and unpasteurized beer which is conditioned (including secondary fermentation) and served from a cask without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. This process makes real ale unique amongst beers and develops wonderful tastes and aromas. Join Mother Road the evening of June 9th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. under open spring skies on the patio to enjoy 12 real ales. Breweries from across Arizona will be providing casks to be served by gravity dispensing and hand pump beer engines. Your admission includes 12 four ounce tastes and a commemorative tasting glass. Pizzicletta will be available for ordering food, or bring in your favorites from the plentiful Southside restaurants. This is a perfect warm-up for a craft beer filled Flagstaff weekend.
