It's (anniversary) party time, people.

It’s (anniversary) party time, people.

A seventh anniversary does not sound like a reason to go all-out and party for an entire week. This is Marble Brewery, however, and “go big or go home” might as well be their (other) mantra. All week long there will be something special going on at one of their three locations. To help out the masses, we compiled all the info we could get our hands on so you all know the key facts of what-when-where-how much.

Deep breath. Ready? It’s go time.

Today (Monday): Reviva!, one of the most popular bands in ABQ, takes the stage downtown at 6 p.m. The show is free. Karibu Cafe will be the food truck parked out front from 5 to 11 p.m.

Tuesday: Head up to Farm & Table for a beer dinner at 6 p.m. Never been to F&T? The good news is it is easy to find. Just take Alameda and turn south on 4th Street. They are located at 8917 4th St. NW, about halfway between Alameda and Paseo del Norte. The cost is $65 for a five-course meal paired with Marble’s finest beers. To make reservations, just email

Wednesday: The 2015 edition of the Brett IPA will be released on tap and in bombers at all three Marble locations starting at 5 p.m. Downtown, Felix y Los Gatos will provide the music from 5 to 8 and Street Food Institute will keep everyone satiated. Adoughbe Pizza will be parked outside the Westside Taproom.

Thursday: Cask Night at the Westside Taproom will feature three special fruit-infused firkins of Marble beers. Brewer Josh Trujillo sent us the list — Oatmeal Stout with Clementines, Amber Ale with dates, and Double White with a tropical blend. Have fun, those of you without food allergies!

Friday: Anniversary Extravaganza at the El Rey. Kicking off at 5 p.m., you can enjoy a full Marble tap takeover at the historic performance space, plus there will be live music from The Porter Draw, Red Light Cameras, Mondo Vibrations, and Dead Winter Carpenters. The cost is $15 for general admission or $25 for VIP. You get a commemorative glass and three 4-ounce samples. Tickets can be purchased at any Marble location or online at their website or that of the El Rey.

Saturday: Courtyard Party in Santa Fe. From 2 to 9 p.m., have some fun in the City Different’s taproom. Dead Winter Carpenters and David Berkeley will provide the music, Street Food Institute will provide the, well, food. There is no cover charge. (UPDATE) Thanks to Amberley Rice, we have the list of what will be on tap at the El Rey: Brett Stout, Quad, Brett IPA, White Out, Rauchbier, Jarrylo IPA, Weizenbach, Choice Blanc, DIPA, Imperial Red, Double White, Red, IPA, Pilsner, Oatmeal Stout, Amber, Wildflower. Imperial Stout and Reserve Ale will be available in bottles in the VIP section only.

Sunday: Bluegrass Festival downtown. Starting at noon, enjoy six different bluegrass bands on stage — Duke City Swamp Coolers (noon-1 p.m.), Peg Leg Joe (1:30-2:30), Kitty Jo Creek (3-4), The Green Billies (3:30-4:30), The Saltine Ramblers (5-6), and The Squash Blossom Boys (6:30-7:30). TFK Smokehouse and Street Food Institute will be parked on the curb. Admission is free.

If there are any other late updates from Marble or other participants, we will pass them along.
