While beer festivals may not be back in full force just yet, the craft beer world is starting to find its way back to that good place that feels more like the normal we remember as events return to our taprooms. We in the Dark Side Brew Crew couldn’t be more thrilled that the times, they are a-changing, at last.
This Tuesday, Rowley Farmhouse Ales is hosting a huge tap takeover with Modern Times of San Diego to help kick off the launch of one of California’s most exciting breweries (distribution) in New Mexico.
In addition to the great list of Modern Times beer and plethora of new Rowley Farmhouse offerings, there will, of course, be the always-excellent RFA gastropub menu, with a couple possible surprises to look out for. There will be a Best Mask contest complete with fun prizes. And, because the good folks at Rowley Farmhouse Ales are such doggo lovers, they are donating all the proceeds from the Ice Pilsner to benefit NMDog.
Available from Modern Times:
- Ice Pilsner
- Orderville Hazy IPA
- Fruitlands Passion Freuit & Guava Gose
- Dungeon Map West Coast IPA
- Star Cloud Hazy Citra IPA
- Electrojet Hazy IPA
- Temple of Silence Imperial Dessert Stout
RFA is also featuring some killer recent releases of their own — Easy Lover Honey Braggot (collab with Superstition Meadery of Arizona), Tengo Que, their new hazy IPA, and Arbordale, an excellent Belgian IPA of assistant brewer Marcus’ own creation. And, if you haven’t yet tried their farmhouse lager, El Pastor, you now know exactly how to finish out your evening.
The tap take over begins at 4 p.m. at 1405 Maclovia St. in Santa Fe. If everything I mentioned above wasn’t enticing enough, you should definitely head over to RFA to meet the Modern Times crew, who will be there to hang out, talk beer, and celebrate the biggest beer launch so far in 2021.
To even more good beer options in New Mexico!
Cheers and May the 4th be with you!
