Audubon Southwest has partnered with AZ Wilderness Brewing Company and Liberty Wildlife to bring a new beer on “Thirstday,” February 9th, which will lead into a contest where participants decide who is Arizona’s superb owl. Audubon Southwest is the Arizona branch of the National Audubon Society, an organization dedicated to protecting birds and educating the public. This will be the first time the Center has hosted its Birds & Beer event in-person since the pandemic began. This edition of Birds & Beer is titled Superb Owl. AZ Wilderness’ new “Superb Owl” beer can be tasted at the event, and live owls will be shown.
Superb Owl will take place on February 9th, 2023, from 5:30 PM to 8 PM. Admission is free and no advanced reservation is required. Please note that beer and soft drinks will still be on sale, however. Voting for which owl is superb began on January 24th.
It will be located in the Rio Salado Audubon Center at the following address:
3131 S. Central Ave.
Phoenix, AZ 85040
Liberty Wildlife will bring the live owls, and Mexican Spotted Owl biologist Amanda Moors will talk about her work as a guest speaker. Even Woodsy Owl will be there!
