Chimi Week (Monday-Saturday, Feb. 20-25)
Many people believe that the Chimichanga was invented right here in Arizona and their popularity has stirred up a great debate centered on declaring them the State’s Official Food. So, in keeping with Arizona celebration, SanTan Brewing Company will roll out a special Chimichanga pairing menu available February 20-25. On Monday, try the Sonoran Coney Chimi prepared with a bacon wrapped all beef hot dog topped with Coney Island chili, cheddar cheese, sliced avocado and pico de gallo, rolled into a jumbo flour tortilla and deep fried. The Sonoran Coney Chimi pairs well with SanTan Brewing’s Epicenter Amber. Other Chimi Week highlights include the Cochinita Pibil Chimi, Chico Chimi and the Texas Red Chili Chimi made with big chunks of braised beef simmered in a hearty red chili with chopped white onions and sharp aged white cheddar—pairs perfectly with Gordo Stout.
In addition to these three awesome events, SanTan Brewing Company has planned craft beer pairings, dinners and parties throughout the week at many partner locations including the Burgers & Brews dinner at Stax Bistro and the Surf & Turf Redefined dinner at Latitude 8 Thai Grill – both on Tuesday, February 21. Another noteworthy highlight held at SanTan Brewing Company is Manless Monday on February 20 at 6:30 p.m. Manless Monday is the ultimate grilled cheese pairing, just for the ladies. Brews include SanTan’s Epicenter Amber, Hop Shock IPA, Sex Panther, Devil’s Ale and more.
