CHANDLER -- Arizona Craft Beer Week is highly anticipated here in the Valley.

The American Homebrewers Association is helping to celebrate with a gathering of homebrewers.

About 100 homebrewers showed up at the San Tan Brewing Facility to see how the big guys do it. They toured the facility and many brought growlers of their own brew to share.

Two homebrewers who came out plan to open their own breweries soon. Another is attending school to learn more about the beer-making process.

"I've tried a lot of amazing things from a lot of amazing homebrewers, so it's fun," said Krystal Bittner of the Arizona Society of Homebrewers. "It's good to try new things, see what they put into it, maybe learn something that I can do."

Arizona Craft Beer Week continues Friday and Saturday. For more information visit
