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.

Dialogue Brewing won’t turn 3 years old until this fall, but the brewery owner and staff decided it was already in need of a makeover. This Saturday, that project comes to fruition with the Grand Re-Opening Party, starting at 4 p.m. Come check out the revamped interior, new food menu, expanded patio, and enjoy some live music from Silver String Band and The Porter Draw.

Today (Wednesday) is the last day before ABQ Beer Week launches, so it seems like a perfectly reasonable time to take a moment and chill out with a good beer or two before the events begin. Marble is bringing back White Out today at all three locations, on tap and in cans. Normally this means summer cannot be far behind, but considering it just snowed the other day in parts of New Mexico, all bets are off. But, you can still enjoy this big (9% ABV) wheat ale made with American hops and a spicy Belgian yeast, regardless of the weather. Just not too many in a row, unless you’re safely tucked within the confines of your home. We also need to give Marble some props for helping Watermelon Mountain Ranch with a fundraiser and adoption event at the Westside Taproom this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. Head to the taproom Facebook page for more details!

As a note about official Beer Week events, if they are taking place at a brewery or its taproom(s), we will still list them here, but for more details check out our daily previews that begin Thursday.

Did we lose anyone last weekend? It was a wild one. No Crew members were overly harmed at the Slayer show, but yeah, we were all pretty sore and somewhat hard of hearing the next day (it was totally worth it). Anyway, nothing like that this weekend, since after all, Sunday is Mother’s Day. If you would like to celebrate with mom, or perhaps just any of the beer-loving women in your life, head to Marble 111 for the Women’s Fest, which runs from 2 to 8 p.m. There will women performers on stage, including musicians Kelsey Manning, Melissa Rios, and Stephanie Hatfield, plus local poets. Women-owned vendors will be present, including Two Stoned Betties, Enchanting Soap Collection, and Spellbound Syrups, plus a portion of the day’s proceeds will go to Barrett House Foundation, which is dedicated to helping end the cycle of homelessness for women. The best part? It’s free to attend.

Bosque now has Spacelion IPA on tap and in cans at all locations, including Restoration Pizza, and it also unveils Rebble Pebble, a brown ale made with Cocoa Pebbles cereal.

Oh, it’s gonna be quite the weekend. We’ve got metal on Friday, geekdom on Saturday, and another one of those drinking holidays on Sunday. OK, not all of it really takes place at breweries, certainly not the start as Slayer, Amon Amarth, Lamb of God, and Cannibal Corpse take over the Isleta Amphitheater. That should answer the question “where is the Crew tonight?” on Friday. Anyway, back to the breweries, your Friday alternative is the downtown Art Walk, which will include an indoor art market at Boese Brothers. Then on Saturday, Bow & Arrow has a May Pop-Up Market at noon, while Quarter Celtic and Rio Bravo will be throwing an entire Star Wars-themed day series of events and discounts for May the 4th Be With You (the holiday also known as my birthday, so you can rest assured that I will be enjoying some delicious beers that day). Then comes Cinco de Mayo on Sunday, so please, pretty please, leave your car at home and find safe means of transportation if you are going out. There will be a DWI blitz by multiple police departments this entire weekend. Scroll down to the brewery entries below for all the live music and other events going on Sunday afternoon and evening. Ponderosa has an English Amber Ale now on tap.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bosque is getting weird with Bringing Pickleback, plus Spacelion IPA returns in cans for a special release at the Las Cruces taproom on Saturday. Bow & Arrow shines with Golden Bandana Bohemian Pilsner. Boxing Bear has Brut German Pilsner, plus it added Barrel-Aged Chocolate Milk Stout, New MexiKolsch, and MavBear Brett Hazy IPA for the West Downtown Taproom grand opening today (Wednesday). Canteen and Turtle Mountain both have their Kolscllaboration on tap, plus cans of Canteen’s Cabana Lager will be on sale this weekend. Dialogue is feeling sour with Blacker the Berry the Sweeter the Juice. Marble rolls along with Vienna Exxxtra, Not English Pale Ale, and Brut Savant. Nexus brought back Coffee & Cream, while also introducing G-Bird Grapefruit IPA. Red Door made more New England IPA, because you all can’t seem to get enough of it. Steel Bender has a mixed-fruit Berliner Weisse, Rosy Nosy, going on tap Thursday. Toltec is celebrating its one-year anniversary all weekend, with Toltec Especial and Goddess Warrior, an imperial agave wheat, going on tap Sunday.

Up in Santa Fe, Rowley Farmhouse Ales travels the world for The Smoking Swede and Arigato Gosemasu.

The final days of April seem to have a theme of giving back to good causes. It starts this week at Dialogue with Finola’s Fight Benefit Concert featuring the Memphis P Tails and Sex for Admission. There will be a raffle and a silent auction during the concert, which runs from 6 to 9 p.m. It all benefits Finola, a friend of the brewery who is battling cancer.

Hey, remember last week, when we barely had anything to write about? Yeah, that is so not this week. Thursday through Saturday is just kinda bonkers, and that is leaving out all the Marble anniversary events we previewed separately. First up, there is some truly blackened black metal descending upon Tumbleroot’s Agua Fria location in Santa Fe this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Local heavyweights Dysphotic are joined by touring bands UADA and Wormwitch for a head-banging good time. Then on Friday night, keep that Game of Thrones buzz going in advance of the next episode on HBO, as the Desert Darlings return to Tractor Wells Park for the GoT edition of Hops & Dreams. Need to get out and move more? Then head downtown Saturday afternoon for the third annual Easter Beer Hunt. It’s a grownup egg hunt, and the different colors of plastic eggs correspond to the three participating breweries — Boese Brothers, Red Door, Sidetrack — with different prizes inside that can be redeemed at each brewery. Only three eggs can be redeemed at each location, and please do not start until noon. For those who do not drink beer, you can also redeem some of the eggs at The Brew for coffee. Saturday will also feature a slew of 4/20 events, including special ones at Rio Bravo (market and live music), Turtle Mountain (smoked BBQ), and Truth or Consequences (cannabis education).

On the new beer front this week, there are a few other options to check out. Bombs Away finds itself in Condition Red Ale. Bosque recently rolled out Sunshine Stout, Mango Mujer, and W-Altbier White.

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.
