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, one in Red River, one in Silver City, and one in Truth or Consequences also joining the party.

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

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

This Sunday is Father’s Day, just in case you had not checked the calendar in a while, and thankfully there will be some pretty good brew-and-food options if you have a dad like mine who loves beer. Luke has a preview of the Crab and Pilsner Festival at Second Street Rufina, which runs all day Saturday and Sunday. We would just recommend you go early Sunday, in case they run out of crab (this inland state loves its shellfish). Down in Silver City, Little Toad Creek has a Blues Brunch at 1 p.m. with live music from Joe Neri and Blues Dawg. Canteen has Beer and a Brat at both locations starting at noon. Get a pint of Laid Back Lager and a bratwurst for $8. Quarter Celtic is grilling up ribs on the patio, with special pours of Dark Pedro and barrel-aged MacLomas Stout starting at noon, plus live music from Canyon Standard time from 3 to 5 p.m. If there are any other Father’s Day-centric events that we have missed, please let us know!

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bosque has a new saison, Ocha. Canteen has its anniversary beer, Citranova, on tap and in cans Saturday. Ex Novo looks at some Aperture Pale, plus it also has its collaboration with Steel Bender, Saison de Luxe, available in bottles. La Cumbre releases its collaboration IPA with Colorado’s Cannonball Creek Brewing, Woodland Paradise, on tap and in cans on Friday. Marble was able to Czech in with Pilsner Burquell. Ponderosa has a fresh batch of Oatmeal Stout. Red Door rolls out a slew of new seasonals, with Cascade SMASH and Lemonade Stand up first, followed by Picture Rock Porter, a collaboration with Beer Creek, on Friday, and Nitro Double Vanilla Cream on Sunday. Tractor hits the mark with Sorachi Ace IPA.

Up in Santa Fe, Second Street brewed up an Imperial Pilsner for its festival. Over in Los Alamos, Bathtub Row stacks up some Brick City IPA.
