Events | Arizona’s Biggest Kentucky Derby Party
There’s nothing like a hazy Hefeweizen on Kentucky Derby Day at Turf Paradise. Beer with crisp, citrus character will appeal to the elaborate hat-wearing denizens spending their afternoon wisely at Arizona’s largest and only true Kentucky Derby Party, The Stella Artois Derby DayClub, which is already on pace to triple in volume from last year when it comes back to Turf Paradise on Saturday, May 6th, 2017.
Feeling the results of the warming temperatures? Iced, beery sanctuary will take up residence at the Hensley Hefeweizen & Craft Beer Garden: Presented by Hensley Beverage Company. The garden is a brand new experience that will include this thirst-quenching lineup of perfect sunny weather brews:
Hangar 24 Orange Wheat
Mudshark Hava Blue
Marble Double White
Golden Road Hefe
Golden Road Wheat
Breckenridge Agave Wheat
Breckenridge Ophelia Wheat
Oak Creek Hefe
Goose 312 Urban Wheat
Kona Wailua Wheat
The Stella Artois Derby DayClub, which sold out in only three weeks last year, started off as a means to give derby fans a trackside, VIP party experience inside air-chilled, polo style tents along the rails at Turf Paradise. And with gambling terminals inside the tents it is the only Arizona Kentucky Derby party with live racing and betting.
Now in its second year, entrances to The Stella Artois Derby DayClub open 10:30am.
“We noticed Arizona doesn’t have a showcase of wheat beers and thought this event to be the perfect place to introduce it,” said Jason Rose, co-founder of The Stella Artois Derby DayClub.
