Editor’s note: Julie attended the Friday night main event, and filed a quick bit of info of what folks can expect tonight. Remember, this is not a traditional unlimited sampling festival. I’ll let her explain the rest below.

If you go: Breweries who will have staff on-site tonight (Saturday) include Santa Fe Brewing, Marble, and NM Hard Cider. Founders, Ballast Point, and Oskar Blues are served up by reps from Whole Foods. This is not a tasting event, and you’ll be allowed three drinks (tonight that means three 12-ounce cans). Food trucks are separated from the beer, and you may have to wait quite a while if the crowd is thick. Last night, some people waited more than 45 minutes for food. As you can imagine, this cuts into your beer-drinking time, so come prepared. Dogs are not allowed within the bike expo and beer garden, but are allowed in Fort Marcy park on a leash. Overall, the Fort Marcy site is a nice upgrade from the Railyard — parking is easier and there is fresh air and space to spread out. A pump track is set up next to the playground equipment, so pack the kids’ bikes, too.

Here’s the other two that Oskar Blues will have tonight.

Old Chub (8.0% ABV, 25 IBU) Oskar Blues brings their outstanding Scottish-style ale to add to the Burning Can mix tonight at Outside Bike & Brew.

OB IPA (6.43% ABV, 70 IBU) Their unusual IPA is hopped with hand-selected Australian hops, and delivers a nice, full body with a pineapple/citrus aftertaste.
