Well, thank the dark lord, 2021 is almost over. Finding optimism for 2022 can be hard sometimes, but hey, at least there will be new beer to enjoy. Right? RIGHT, UNIVERSE?! Ahem, anyway, this final week of this misbegotten trip around the sun will feature a couple big stouts in cans, an aptly named lager, a new take on a British classic, and quite a few fun events to attend on Friday night.
Harmon Lane fires up a Red Chile Imperial Farmhouse. High and Dry unveils the amazingly named Supply Chain Issues, a light lager. JUNO just tapped Mickey Mum’s (Italian) Pilsner. Marble hops to it with Sabro IPA. ReSource will soon have New Beer, New Me, a champagne wit, just in time for New Year’s Eve. Rio Bravo just tapped a hefty Barleywine and also has Phase 7: American IPA. Sobremesa released Poquito Pils, an Italian-style pilsner. Steel Bender will tap No Place Like Home, an English-style ruby mild, this Thursday.
Up in Santa Fe, Hidden Mountain tapped Atavist IPA. Over in Los Alamos, Bathtub Row has a fresh batch of Caldera Kolsch. Further north, Red River Brewing added Contagion Pomegranate Sour Ale. Down south, Truth or Consequences Brewing will have the 2021 verison of Fireside Tripel available soon, plus Masquerade Dark Cherry Saison should be available for New Year’s Eve.
Bow & Arrow won’t stop releasing new cans into the wild, with Magic Desert Shop BBA Stout V.2 the latest on the menu. Ex Novo is planning on releasing Penguin Tuxedo Stout at some point this week in cans and on draft. Rowley Farmhouse Ales has an apricot-infused version of Mountain of Light (Gose) in cans and on draft.
Thursday — Tractor is showing the original Child’s Play at Wells Park at 7 p.m., while Brew Lab 101 is hosting an eating contest, of sorts, featuring YouTube stars Randy Santel and Katina Eats Kilos that starts at 6.
Friday — There will be New Year’s Eve parties at numerous breweries. Free ones include a special performance by Baracutanga at Canteen Brewhouse, the Gin & Jazz at Tractor Wells Park, DJ Flo Fader spinning at Tractor Nob Hill, DJ Fishbowl spinning at Tractor Westside, and the Dirty Brown Jug Band at Tractor Los Lunas. Outside of Albuquerque, there is Detroit Lightning at Tumbleroot, plus a party with the Gila Lobsters and DJ Thai Tech at Little Toad Creek in Socorro. Parties with cover charges include one with CW Ayon at Truth or Consequences Brewing ($5), a salsa celebration at JUNO ($20), and a benefit concert/fundraiser at Lizard Tail Industrial ($35).
Saturday — Canteen wants everyone up and running for the Resolution Maker and Breaker 5K at noon. Little Toad Creek will have a hangover brunch in Silver City at 1 p.m. There will be live music at all four Tractor taprooms in the evening.

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.
