On June 3, 2015, Fate Brewing in Scottsdale, AZ graciously hosted the ladies of AZGPO with delicious pizza and craft beer. Fate has been around since 2012 and just continues to keep growing. The craft beer community in Arizona looks forward to the opening of a new Fate location soon as well. The girls of AZGPO wanted to experience some Fate beer and pizza before then, though, so we made it out to the current location to socialize and enjoy some good beer as well as tasty pizza and salads.
This was the first official AZGPO event hosted by our new leaders Bev Ross and Drue Kaplan, and they put together a terrific event. There were around 30 ladies present, both new faces as well as long-time members of the group. We got a great deal from Fate, including a flight of some of their current beers, a full pint, and a wood-fired pizza or a salad. I'm sure the salads were great, but I couldn't turn down the pizza. Fate's brick oven cooks up some unique and delicious flavors of pizza, and the one I chose was no exception. It paired perfectly with some of their current beers. Fate likes to keep them rotating, which makes it nice to visit one week and come back the next to find new beers to try.
Along with meeting new people and catching up with some old friends, the AZGPO ladies got to participate in a raffle with the chance to win some prizes. I actually won a gift card in the raffle, and you can bet I will be back. When you're in Scottsdale, definitely check out this brewery and grab a pint. You won't regret it. I know the AZ ladies of craft beer will be returning as well, so if you see any of this there, make sure to stop and say hi!
