The real fun with the Outside Bike & Brew Festival in Santa Fe begins today (Friday) and continues through the weekend. The main event will take place at Fort Marcy Park tonight and Saturday from 3:30 to 9 p.m. There will be live music, a beer garden, and a whole lot more.

On the music front, Pigment plays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. today, followed by Contraband from 5 to 7, and CON BRIO from 7 to 9. As for Saturday, the lineup is Mellow Mood from 3:30 to 4:30, Ribo Flavin from 5 to 7, and The Lonely Wild from 7 to 9.

Then, of course, there is the beer, which is the real reason you are probably reading this article. The lineup in breweries changes from today to Saturday, with the latter day focusing on canned beers as it will be a scaled-down version of Oskar Blues’ popular Burning Can Festival.
