Whether you decide to spend the weekend at an outdoor festival or an indoor market, there is plenty to keep you entertained this weekend in Phoenix. 

 

Downtown Phoenix Urban Ale Trail

From 1 p.m. to 6 p.m on Saturday, more than 30 participating downtown bars and restaurants—all within reasonable walking distance of each other—will be offering four-ounce pours of select beers for just $1 or $2 while serving up complimentary bites to keep you fueled on your expedition. 

Want to go home with a handy souvenir? The first 300 people to check in at District American Kitchen and Wine Bar will get a free commemorative growler, as seen above.
