Probably a little late but others may be interested.   We have several newer breweries Arizona Wilderness in Gilbert, Huss Brewing in Tempe and Fate Brewing in Scottsdale and all are excellent.   San Tan Brewing and Four Peaks Brewing are great too.

No Pro-Brewer's Night?  A sign things are going downhill!   Loved that event - a chance to mingle with regional brewers.  Time to have regional conferences I think.  By the way my previous comments seem to have disappeared from the forum.  Disappointed to be frank.

Personally I am very disappointed with the imposition of a lottery to determine who gets to attend NHC.  I have participated in NHC the last three years and never had any issues getting registered right after the process opened up.   In my opinion it should be first come, first served basis.  Now I am concerned that I won't get in as others are to.  Like many I have vacation and family activities planned around the event.   A friend and I plan also to meet up there but the lottery throws a lot of uncertainty into the mix.  Seems as though the 20% more additional slots alone would help alleviate the problem and should be evaluated before imposing a lottery.
