TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, are teaming up with local brewers to host fans for a special night celebrating craft beer and hockey on Saturday, November 4.
Taking place on the TCC Courtyard located outside Tucson Arena, the first-ever Hops & Hockey beer festival will begin at 5 PM. For just $45, the Hops & Hockey ticket includes beer samples and entertainment from 5-7 PM, as well as a seat to watch the Roadrunners take on the Cleveland Monsters in their first-ever trip to Tucson.
Tickets can be purchased at tucsonroadrunners.com/hops.
Roadrunners President Bob Hoffman is looking forward to the new collaboration between the club and small businesses within the community. “We are happy to provide an event that will give fans a unique experience along with a Roadrunners hockey game. Promoting and supporting all things local is what we are all about, so partnering with these native brewers is exactly the mark we are trying to make in the city.”
Ten brewers will sample beer during the event, including Dragoon Brewing, Thunder Canyon Brewery, Pueblo Vida Brewery, Sentinel Peak Brewing, Green Feet Brewing, Dillinger Brewing, 1912 Brewing, and more.
Steve Tracy, owner of Thunder Canyon Brewing, appreciates the boost to business that Roadrunner games have brought to his downtown location. “It’s great to see fans enjoying downtown restaurants and bars before and after games. This event is great way to bring different parts of the downtown community together.”
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to KXCI Community Radio, and Executive Director Cathy Rivers says the organization plans to use the funds to support their new studio on Congress. “Connecting the communities of Tucson and Southern Arizona is what KXCI is all about,” said Rivers. “We thrilled to be part of an event that does exactly that.” More information about KXCI can be found at KXCI.org.
