It is spring, so slowly but surely the beer festivals are popping up. Our friends over at Rock & Brews are hosting a Spring Beer Festival this Saturday, with a mix of local and regional breweries in attendance.

The event kicks off at 2 p.m., and tickets cost either $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Participants get a commemorative sample glass and then a chance to try beers from 11 breweries, six local and five from outside the state.

Participating breweries from beyond our borders include Dogfish Head, Left Hand, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, and Upslope. The locals are Boese Brothers, Ponderosa, Rio Bravo, Santa Fe, and Sierra Blanca.

In addition to many of the usual favorites, Rock & Brews shared a few of the specialty one-off kegs that will be tapped.

  • UPDATE: Boese Brothers Zeus Juice White IPA
  • Left Hand Honey Saison AuMiel
  • New Belgium Tartastic
  • Ponderosa 200th Brew Baltic Porter and New England IPA (making its debut here before going on tap at the brewery)
  • Rio Bravo La Luz Lager
  • UPDATE: Rowley Farmhouse Ales Good on Ya (Motueka single-hop pale ale)
  • Santa Fe Western Bloc IPA

If we receive news of any additional specialty kegs, we will share them before the event kicks off.

There will also be live music from Chris Ravin (2-5 p.m.) and special door prizes and giveaways.

Stop in, have fun, and you will still have plenty of time to get to Isotopes Park for Dukes Retro Night and the Albuquerque Baseball Hall of Fame induction for pitching brothers Pedro, Ramon, and Jesus Martinez.

Cheers!
