After kind of a lull the week after the Balloon Fiesta, this week looks to be chock full of new brews and a plethora of weekend events.
New Draft: Bosque added Perpetual Sunset, a strawberry lager. Boxing Bear recently tapped Loose Seal Pale Ale and Falcon Mountain IPA. (UPDATE) Brew Lab 101 took some Boo-Berry cereal and made a 1-barrel batch of Boo’s Berry Cere-Ale. Casa Vieja rolled out Jon’s Hops Kin ESB, Surface of the Sun Pilsner, and Merry Sol IPA. Ex Novo tapped Ruminator Doppelbock and Marryin Berries (Fruited Gose). Gravity Bound just released Soft to the Touch (Oat Cream DIPA). High and Dry sings along with a new sour, Allison Chains. La Cumbre will have their German Pilsner available this Friday, and Pick Your Own Pumpkin is available now. La Reforma brings back their Copper Canyon Pale Ale, which benefits the Aljaba Casa Hogar children’s home in Mexico. Lizard Tail’s Black Lager (Schwarzbier) is now on draft. Marble added Plum Saison with Brett at all three locations. Nexus tapped their Lush Imperial Stout, a 12-percent ABV beast. Quarter Celtic brings their “Tardy to das Party” Oktoberfest to taps today (Wednesday). ReSource Brewing tapped their Doppelgänger IPA. Sidetrack has a fresh batch of Pub Ale. Starr Brothers unveils Delta Blues, a gose. Thirsty Eye has I Hope They Serve Beer In Helles on draft and will be releasing Batch 100 (DIPA) this Saturday. Turtle Mountain resurrected Get Bock Inside.
Up in Santa Fe, Rowley Farmhouse Ales tapped Mountain of Light, a gose-style wheat. Second Street has a fresh batch of Pecos Porter. Over in Los Alamos, Bathtub Row has tapped Prometheus Porter and Witrock. Down south, Truth or Consequences Brewing brings back their Monticello Green Chile Amber, brewed with locally grown and roasted Monticello green chile.
New Cans: Bow and Arrow will have Mango Amigo available this Friday. Ex Novo brings a trio of new releases with Ruminator Doppelbock, Marryin Berries (Fruited Gose), and Flat Spin Heading Out to Sea (Bohemian Pils with Saphir hops). Harmon Lane has brought back their Tin Cup Stout. La Cumbre will have their German Pilsner available this Friday.
Up in Santa Fe, Second Street brings back the delicious Jack Plane Porter (Imperial Smoked Cherrywood Porter) and (UPDATE) Gose Town, a strawberry rhubarb kettle sour, makes its canned debut this Saturday. On the new bottles front, Beer Creek is releasing Barrel-Aged Prince Jack Imperial Porter and Barrel-Aged Lizard King Imperial Stout this Friday.
Events: There will be a celebration on Saturday for the release of Thirsty Eye’s 100th batch of beer, Batch 100 (DIPA). Per brewer John Kofonow: “We’ve been denied our first and second anniversary celebrations (around May-ish) due to the pandemic, but our 100th batch of beer seems like a good reason to throw a little party. Not only are we releasing Batch 100 on Saturday, but we’re going to do happy hour pricing all day, plus we’ll have live music from Hello Darlin’ (7-9 p.m.) and Zia Bros pizza (4-8 p.m.) in the evening.” Sounds like a great reason to head over and enjoy the festivities.
Marble celebrates the nine-year anniversary of their Westside taproom on Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. with music from Reviva and a special beer release. At Marble Downtown on Sunday, they will be hosting their sixth annual Mutt Masquerade with registration between 11 a.m. to noon, to be followed by the parade and judging in various categories. $1 from each pint sold at this event will go to Watermelon Mountain Ranch.
Steel Bender will be at the Maize Maze Fall Festival on Saturday and Sunday, which is the primary fundraising event for the Rio Grande Community Farm. Lots of local vendors will be there as well as music, fall activities, food trucks, and the like. Tickets and more information can be found here.
Also on Saturday, Tractor Wells Park brings back their Stranger Things drag queen bingo and carnival from 6 to 11 p.m. Advance tickets are $8 and can be procured here https://holdmyticket.com/event/382426 or $10 day of. Stoutmeister will have a more detailed preview this Thursday.
(UPDATE) A late edition to the events list comes from Sobremesa, which will be holding a three-day Oktoberfest celebration this Friday through Sunday. Their Oktoberfest is on tap all weekend, the food special is a bratwurst with sauerkraut on a pretzel bun, Chris Dracup will provide live music Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m., and it all concludes Sunday afternoon with a Stein Hoisting Contest for $15 per person. You get to keep the engraved stein, get a 24-ounce pour of Oktoberfest or Hilltop Helles, and you have the chance to win a T-shirt and gift card.

To break down each “capsule,” I listed the brewery (with Web page linked), its phone number and hours of operation. Instead of “Beers” being an all-encompassing list of seasonal/specialty offerings, we are now splitting everything into “Draft/Crowler/Growler Fills” for beers poured from the taps, and “Cans/Bottles” for pre-packaged beers. All beers listed are subject to change.
