Greetings, New Mexico craft beer lovers. Stoutmeister here with The Week Ahead in Beer. This column covers all the breweries in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, with Santa Fe’s seven breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Red River also joining the party.

Stoutmeister puts on his serious face to handle The Week Ahead in Beer.

We do love the many options we have in packaged beers here in New Mexico, and love it even more to see some of the more popular seasonals find their way into package. La Cumbre brings back one of its more popular seasonal brews, El Jugo, in cans and on tap this Friday. It was one of the first hazy hop-forward beers to be packaged in the state. New to the scene, at least in cans, is Second Street’s Dragon’s Blood. This blood orange sour will cause you to pucker up, before settling into a smooth pour. It is already available at Second Street’s locations and at local retailers. It will help get you through the wacky weather this week when you hide inside for a few days.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few other options to check out. Bombs Away flies in with Picatinny Porter and Rye Saison. Bosque is feeling smooth with Cashmere IPA. Bow & Arrow brings back one of our favorites in Cake Bandit, an imperial German chocolate cake stout. Cantero hops on the express with Hempowered Pineapple Gose. Marble takes you to the beach with Mojito Gose. Quarter Celtic pays tribute to one of the greats with We’re Gonna Miss the Helles Outta Ya Charlie P. Rio Bravo introduces Apricot Hefe and Send it Pilsner. Steel Bender brewed up a black currant sour for Saturday’s Tart at Heart, Pucker Up, Buttercup, which will be on tap at the brewery that day as well.

Up in Santa Fe, Second Street also has some new ones including International Style Steam, Salvation Stout, Bonebreaker ESB, and Black Canyon Porter. Over in Los Alamos, Bathtub Row added CojonHaze IPA and Magdalena, a pre-Prohibition New Mexico recipe.

Also, take note that we have added Truth or Consequences Brewing to our listings, as per their request, and we would say by popular demand considering their rising star in the state.
