That’s a wrap, folks!
ABQ Beer Week 2017 ends with a small handful of events, including the annual Guild golf tournament, plus a few brunches and food-and-beer pairings.
We wanted to thank everyone who made it out to one or more events this year. It all came together fairly smoothly, at least from our perspective. We enjoyed some amazing beer and food and, most importantly, had fun.
Until 2018, the Crew will be winding back down to normal.
Every day we will pick what we consider the biggest, most interesting, most unique event. This does not mean you should go to only this event and ignore the rest. All of them deserve your attention, but realistically, you can probably only attend a few. So we will make our daily pick, and you can either jump on it, or declare the Crew is foolish (we kinda are) and pick your own.
What: Joe S. Sausage Super Sunday Sampler. Where: Marble Downtown. When: 2-6 p.m. Cost: $25.
Details: The annual closing event of Beer Week at Marble features Joe and his amazing sausages, each of which will be paired with different beers. There will also be live music from the Naughty Sweethearts at 2 and Dusty Green Bones at 3:30.
Why you should go: Go ahead, be a glutton one last time and stuff your face, all while listening to local music.
All the other great events
What: 9th Annual NM Brewers Guild Golf Tournament. Where: Santa Ana Golf Club. When: 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Cost: $110 per person. Details: Support the Guild and head out to the course!
