Archive for the ‘The Week Ahead in Beer’ Category

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Las Cruces 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.

As anyone who can read a calendar knows, the infamous “holiday” of 4/20 falls on a Friday this year. While that might have a bunch of people enjoying a cousin plant of hops, most of beer lovers will stick to the brews. The good news is there are three (previously four) mondo-sized beers either debuting or returning this Friday. Bow & Arrow introduces Thief of Time Barleywine, for those who want to stick with the malt-forward beers a bit longer, while the others are going with hop-forward offerings. Red Door unveils its first New England IPA at all of its locations. (Editor’s note: It runs out Marble will not have DIPA Especial ready for Friday. This was corrected from earlier today.) Then there is the big daddy of ’em all, Father Nelson, the monstrous DIPA that will return at La Cumbre. Take your pick of any of those, then go watch the Desert Darlings at 8 p.m. for the Wizard of Oz edition of Hops & Dreams at Tractor Wells Park, and enjoy the “holiday.”

We also wanted to highlight an awesome metal show that is going down at Second Street Rufina on Saturday night at 8:30. Albuquerque bands Distances and The Coma Recovery are heading north to promote their new albums, joined by Americas and Antiphony. It’s just a $7 cover to see some great bands, while also enjoying the wonderful beers on tap. Hails!

On the new beer front this week, there are a few other options to check out. Boxing Bear brings back Strong Arm Strong Pale Ale by popular demand. Canteen has more North 14 Pale Ale and Strawberry Basil Gose, plus Rosie the Riveter Session IPA is available there as well. Flix has OASIS Passionfruit Belgian Blonde and Hazeas Corpus Hazy IPA back on tap. High and Dry rolls out Black Hole’s Son (American Porter), Constable Reggie (Tart Amber), Swipe White (Tart Wheat), and Mestia #3 (Table Sour with Cascade hops). Marble also has Chillsner, an export-strength German pilsner, and Nitro Madera is on at the Heights for a limited time, plus today (Wednesday) marks the release of the anniversary beer, Ringleader, on tap and in bottles. Ponderosa should have Hop-Mosa 2.0 on tap by this weekend. Quarter Celtic brings back Saoirse Hefe on Friday. Starr Brothers hopes to have Bloodshot, a blood orange wit, on tap by this weekend. Steel Bender resurrects Raspberry Dynamite on Thursday. Tractor taps the new Pomegranate Dry Cider and Chocolate Coffee Milk Stout. Turtle Mountain honors baseball season with Triple Play Pale Ale on Friday.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn is trying to lure the Crew to visit with Barrel-Aged Cosmic Darkness Imperial Stout. Rowley Farmhouse Ales will have Mixed Dubbels Curling on tap this Sunday, and bottle sales are already underway (see their entry for the link).

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of April 16.

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Las Cruces 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.

Marble has big plans for later this month with its massive 10th anniversary, but it has a cool charity event this Sunday as well. The downtown stage will be manned by three bands from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., all in support of The Mountain Dojo. The dojo is a unique collaborative arts and events space that benefits people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). It hosts everything from martial arts courses to African drumming lessons. It’s located at 319 Mountain Road, not far from Marble 111, so it is quite the natural fit. This is a family-friendly event at Marble, so bring the kids and enjoy music from Cactus Tractor (3 to 5 p.m.), Kung Fu Opera (5:20-5:50) and Wagogo (6:10-8). Food will be provided by Urban Hotdog Company and Rollin’ On In. Donations to the Dojo are encouraged.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Boese Brothers drops a fresh batch of Cascade Grenade this Friday. Bombs Away is feeling the season with some Spring Lager, plus Arsenal Amber Ale is back. Bosque jams along with some Dream Theory, a Vienna lager, and Era of Discovery, a green tea-infused pale ale brewed for charity. Boxing Bear brings back its popular patio beer, New Mexikolsch. Canteen has a fresh batch of Hop Baller IPA, plus some Helles Lager. High and Dry is feeling patriotic with some Liberty Crate IPA while Humble Affair Stout is back and tasting oh so good. La Cumbre goes the experimental hop route with HBC 438 SMASH, while also adding some Imperial Saison, Regional Fetish IPA, and Blanche de Burque returns on tap and in cans this Friday. Marble resurrects its popular New England-style IPA, Desert Fog, while also introducing BBBerry Gose. Quarter Celtic unveils its new New England-style DIPA, Test Batch #2. Also, take note that the Pink Boots Society benefit beer, Rosie the Riveter Session IPA, is now available at Bosque, Santa Fe, Sidetrack, Steel Bender, and Tractor.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn goes down under with some Australian Pale Ale. Rowley Farmhouse Ales celebrates the end of The X-Files with Agent Scully – Season One, Episode Six (IPA), while also adding the Fields of Rye Spring ’18 edition, and some Kaffeeklatsch, a mixed fermentation coffee Berliner Weisse. Second Street has fresh batches of Rod’s Steam Bitter, Rod’s Best Bitter, LVL Stout, and The Last Passion IPA.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Las Cruces 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.

There are a whole lot of unique events going down this week. It all kicks off Friday, which is of course the first Friday of the month, meaning the Downtown Art Walk is back. As in the past, the downtown breweries and taprooms will participate, including Duel and Sidetrack. That same night, the Desert Darlings are celebrating the second anniversary of Sirena World Dance Studio at Kaktus in Bernalillo. The free show kicks off at 7 p.m. There are three events going down Sunday. This Saturday, Second Street will be donating a share of every beer sold in Pints for Parkinson’s at all three locations. First up is a brewers brunch at Marble Heights starting at 11 a.m. The cost is $30 per person, which gets you plenty of food, beers to pair with it, and a chance to chat with the Marble brewers in a more intimate setting. Tickets are available at the taproom. Up in Santa Fe, Rowley Farmhouse Ales is hosting another Pulls 4 Pups, this time featuring a tap takeover by Santa Fe Brewing, starting at 11:30 a.m. Sales benefit Street Homeless Animal Project. To wrap it all up, Duel ABQ is hosting a double charity event from 4 to 7 p.m. Kids Supporting Kids NM is a charity that helps children fighting cancer, while NMDOG supports freeing chained dogs throughout the state. There will be live music and raffles with prizes in a family-friendly setting.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bosque hops to Standing on Giants IPA and goes sweet with Not Your Average Latte. Bow & Arrow rolls out Desert Rambler Hefeweizen on Thursday. Dialogue tells everyone to Stay Golden Gose on Friday. Kaktus has fresh batches of Pub Ale, Blond Ale, Oatmeal Stout, and Irish Red. Ponderosa deals out some Triple IPA and Peach Wheat Ale. Sidetrack brings back its popular Pilsner just in time for the warmer weather. Starr Brothers resurrects Don’t Fear the RIPA while also adding Peppy Redlocks. Steel Bender teams up with High & Dry for some Zest Out. Turtle Mountain will tap some Bocky Mountain High later this week.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn goes dark with some fresh Black Thought IPA.

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of April 2.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Las Cruces 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.

It looks like the Easter Beer Egg Hunt is going to become an annual tradition. Back for a second year, the event will feature five downtown breweries/taprooms — Boese Brothers, Duel, Monks’ Corner, Red Door, and Sidetrack. That quintet will be hiding colored plastic Easter eggs all over downtown. Inside the eggs will be special prizes that can be redeemed at the different locations. This year there will be more eggs than last year, so no one should be left out. The rules are rather simple. No one starts before noon, and it will run until 5 p.m. Start at any brewery/taproom and head out. No more than three eggs can be redeemed at any location, so bring friends just in case you find a fourth egg for Sidetrack, for example. Let them redeem it. Everyone involved must be 21, of course. There is a map on the event’s Facebook page showing the area in which the eggs will be located. It basically runs from Second Street to Seventh Street, mainly around Central. Head on down and have fun this Saturday!

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Ale Republic puckers up with Bernalillo Weisse. Bombs Away drops Wild Card and The RED Ale on Friday. Bosque brings back Down in the Hollow. Bow & Arrow is releasing its Cosmic Arrow Brett Saison in bottles. Canteen has Pop’s Pilsner back Thursday. Dialogue dials up some Munich Dunkel, with Blood Orange Gose returning Friday. La Cumbre has Orange Choco Nitro Milk Stout on now, plus its awesome collaboration with Denver’s Comrade Brewing, Make IPA Clear Again, is out in cans and on tap this Friday. Marble has more White Out available, plus Session IPA, Double IPA, Nitro Pub Ale, and From the Wood Saison. Sidetrack has a fresh batch of Railhead Red. Steel Bender goes Out to Pasture with a new dry-hopped farmhouse ale, and Manana Tropical IPA returns Friday. Tractor is feeling summery with the new Lemon & Honey. Turtle Mountain is going the zero IBU route with its new Total Malarkey IPA this Sunday. Take note, this Saturday will also mark the arrival of Rosie the Riveter Session IPA, brewed by the local chapter of the Pink Boots Society at Tractor, but the beer will actually be available at multiple participating breweries.

Up in Santa Fe, Second Street has fresh batches of Agua Fria Pilzner and Winter Warmer on tap.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, one in Moriarty, and one in Las Cruces 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.

Turtle Mountain is celebrating its 19th anniversary with more than just a brewmasters dinner (which has already sold out). Every day through Sunday, there will be a special beer-and-food pairing. Today (Wednesday) will feature Amnesia Ale with Ruidoso Ribs for $16. Thursday will feature Slabtown New York Strip with any current seasonal on tap for $18. Friday will feature Pizza Classico with Red Rye Redux for $10. Saturday will feature Pizza Alamosa with Parasol White IPA for $13. Sunday will feature Miah-T Pizza with Stauffenberg Stout for $14. That is quite the way to celebrate turning 19, or at least better than how most of us spent our 19th birthdays.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bombs Away is running Operation Single Hop. Bosque brings back its IRA (India Red Ale). Bow & Arrow goes big with Cake Bandit, an imperial German chocolate cake stout, starting this Thursday. Boxing Bear hops to Tropic Thunder Fruit IPA, plus The Red Glove returns on tap and in bombers Saturday. Canteen has fresh batches of Tuttle IPA and Oat Brown. La Cumbre keeps up its run of specialty canned offerings with Helles Lager this Friday.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn kicks it up a notch with Katabatic Kolsch.

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of March 19.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, and one in Moriarty 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.

We noted last week that there might be a few possibilities for some St. Patrick’s Day fun with the holiday falling on a Saturday. We had no idea just how many breweries were planning on taking part. Canteen will have pipers on site at 2:30 p.m., followed by Boondoggles from 4 to 7 p.m. Dialogue is teaming up with M’Tucci’s for a beer dinner at 5 p.m., with tickets costing $45 apiece on sale at the brewery. A live music tripleheader follows from 7 to 11:30 (see Dialogue’s entry below for more). Drafty Kilt will have the Bernalillo County Police and Fire Pipes and Drums at 12:30 p.m., followed by more live music (see below), and $3 pints of Outlamber all day. Hops Brewery will have $3 green pints all night (the beers were not identified). Kaktus has the Red Light Ramblers performing from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with a special food menu. Marble has live music at all three locations, plus Paddy McNitro will be back on tap, with a special food pairing of oysters from Savor. Nexus will have its Irish Red back on tap. Rio Bravo will hide special green shamrocks all throughout the property that can be used to earn a chance to draw a prize from a special pot of gold (one per person). There will also be a special corned beef plate for just $9. Steel Bender has a whole slew of events this week that we have already covered for both the holiday and its one-year anniversary. Tractor will have live music at all three of its locations. Turtle Mountain has a special menu with corned beer and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, and Irish beef stew made with Snakedriver Dry Irish Stout, which will be back on tap this week. And, of course, Quarter Celtic is going all-out with a two-day celebration of both the holiday and its anniversary. Irish Handcuffs will be coming out of the cellar for this one.

There will also be celebrations up in Santa Fe at Second Street (all locations), with a special menu, Jordy’s Irish Red and Imperial Stout back on tap, and live music. If there are any other breweries or taprooms hosting St. Patrick’s Day-themed events, let us know and we will update this post.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bosque has more Scale Tipper IPA back on tap, plus One Man’s Helles. Bow & Arrow has just added Denim Tux Lager to its regular lineup. Canteen has more North 14 Pale Ale available, plus Marzen is back. La Cumbre already has Guavarama on tap, while Black Berry Briar will be released Friday on tap and in cans. Ponderosa’s new Triple IPA could be available by this weekend, if Bernalillo County Stout runs out as expected. Quarter Celtic also has Kiwi’s Scull and Mangose on tap. Starr Brothers brings back The Green Manalishi. Tractor resurrects Tupac Red Ale, Blood Orange Cider, and Dry Gulch IPA. Turtle Mountain also has fresh Marzen available.

Up in Santa Fe, Second Street also has fresh batches of U2 Irish Stout, El Gato IPA, Boneshaker Special Bitter, Bonebreaker Bitter, and XX ESB.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, and one in Moriarty 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.

The calendar does not lie, as one of the biggest drinking holidays of the year falls on a Saturday here in 2018. St. Patrick’s Day is a week-plus away, and our breweries are all getting prepped. Boxing Bear has already brought back Red Knuckle Irish Red this week, while Turtle Mountain brings back Snakedriver Dry Irish Stout on Friday. Of course, with so much going on next week, this weekend might be better spent just catching up on the breweries you haven’t visited in a while. Overall it is a nice, quiet weekend, though if people start throwing elbows to get at the Oni Noodles at Marble downtown on Sunday, we understand. For the most part, kick back and take it easy. You’re gonna need it before next weekend, when things get crazy (or you lock yourself indoors and hide from the madness).

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bosque has a summer beer early with Simcoe Pils. Bow & Arrow goes big Thursday with Roam Free Double IPA. High and Dry will have nearly its full lineup of beers on tap in the coming days, including a special variant of the Freedom Cage IPA made with Mandarina Bavaria hops. Kaktus checks in with Czech Pilz. La Cumbre has fresh Cascade SMASH on tap now, plus All In Double IPA arrives in cans and on tap this Saturday. Marble rolls out Smoked Helles, Jarrylo Red Ale, and Passionate Gose. Sidetrack spins on to Turntable IPA Series: Track 3. Steel Bender dances up a storm with Raspberry Dynamite on Thursday. Turtle Mountain gets organized with Time Management IPA.

Out in Moriarty, Sierra Blanca is seeing stars with Natalie Portman, a new porter.

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of March 5.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, and one in Moriarty 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.

The City of Albuquerque is celebrating its vibrant downtown with an Artwalk the first Friday of every month, which just happens to fall this week. Naturally, the downtown breweries and taprooms are taking part. Boese Brothers, Sidetrack, the Duel taproom, and Monks’ Corner will all host artists and/or musicians throughout the night. Boese Brothers has a new Black IPA going on tap as the brewery hosts a photography exhibit by Donnie Valdez, plus DJ Burnt Reynolds will spin from 9 p.m. to midnight. Duel will feature Street Smarts 2, presented by Enchanted PopUp. The KS CREW will be the featured artist and DJ Clout will provide the music from 7 to midnight. Monks’ Corner will have live music from Sloan Armitage from 6 to 8 p.m. Sidetrack has Amanda Turri’s art opening, Transference: One Journey to the Next. Other locations taking part include Boiler Monkey, OT Circus Art Gallery, Paradise Club, and Zendo. Make sure to head downtown and support local artists, musicians, and breweries this Friday!

For our beer-loving friends in Santa Fe, head over to Blue Corn this Thursday for a special four-course collaboration dinner with Beneficial Farms. All of the dishes will be locally sourced, and Blue Corn will roll out the new Peaches and Cream Ale, while also tapping a special cask. The cost is just $45 per person, which is fairly inexpensive for a beer dinner these days. Head brewer Paul Mallory will be on hand to talk about why each dish and beer were paired together. Attendees can also meet farmer Thomas Swendson and his staff from Beneficial Farms.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Marble rolls out an old Crew favorite, Stout Americano, on tap and in bottles at all three locations today (Wednesday), with a special food pairing at each location from The Grove Cafe starting at 5 p.m. Ponderosa teamed up with General Mills for Toasted Cinnamon Stout, made with actual Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Steel Bender has a double release Thursday with Homegrown Pils and Centorado XPA. Turtle Mountain pulled a keg of Stuccon Saison out of the archives.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn also gets ready for the Old Firm Derby with Glasgow Garnet Scotch Ale. Rowley Farmhouse Ales goes big with Aromatherapy IPA. Second Street unveils Kohatu IPA, while also bringing back Diablo Canyon Pale Ale, Outlier Special Bitter, and British Mild.

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of February 26.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, and one in Moriarty 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.

Marble is taking the beer-and-food pairing game to a new level tonight (Wednesday) at the Heights taproom. The Brews & Bites Challenge will pit brewmaster Josh Trujillo and chef Israel Rivera from The Shop against head brewer John Heine and chef Tony Chiado from Kitsune. How does that work? Each chef and brewer has paired up a series of Marble beers with tapas-style foods (four total), with participants getting to vote on their favorite. It costs $30 and tickets are still available (but going fast) at the taproom. It runs from 6 to 8 p.m.

If you cannot make it there tonight, we have some other fun suggestions for the week. The Desert Darlings are back at Tractor Wells Park on Friday night at 8 for the latest edition of Hops & Dreams. This time around it’s the Quentin Tarantino Edition, so make sure to arrive early to get a seat (the joint was filled to the brim last month) to see what these wonderfully creative ladies can do with eight movies worth of costumes and fun. Another option will be to head over to Green Jeans Farmery for its third anniversary bash this weekend. Santa Fe Brewing will of course be at the center of the fun, with the release of the new Twisted Root on Friday. There will be live music, other special beer releases, food specials from Amore Pizzeria, animal adoptions from Watermelon Mountain Ranch on Saturday (noon-4 p.m.), and other charities will also benefit.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bombs Away brings back the High Speed Low Drag Lager. Bosque is feeling sessionable with Public House Pale Ale. Bow & Arrow is tapping Saison De Blanc on Thursday. Kaktus switches things up with some Rauchbier, Doppelbock, and California Common, and St. Paul’s Porter is back as well. La Cumbre has added Vienna Lager. Marble gets hoppy with 1272 IPA and Desert Fog, plus Jabroni Exxxtra and Session White. Ponderosa will have a Hefeweizen on tap by the weekend. Quarter Celtic resurrects Kill or be KILT, plus adds Dark Pedro. Sidetrack brings back Co-Mo IPA. Starr Brothers has a fresh batch of Black Friday.

Up in Santa Fe, Blue Corn declares it’s clobberin’ time with SMASH Pale Ale. Rowley Farmhouse Ales is rollin’ with the Notorious BdG. Over in Los Alamos, Bathtub Row has Little Bird Blonde back on tap, plus newcomers in Dunkel Bock, Flat Cap Brown, and Lichtenheiner.

Continue reading for all the news that is fit to blog for the week of February 19.

— Stoutmeister

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 six breweries, one in Los Alamos, and one in Moriarty 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.

Ah, yes, Valentine’s Day is upon us again. Good luck to all of you in relationships. Me, I’m just thinking back to 20 years ago, when I was a sophomore in college, attending a “Bitter Single People’s Party” with a gallon of vodka in a plastic jug and drinking Jenga, and then the flu hit and I could only make it to the kitchen sink. (How I survived college is a mystery.) Anyway, all these years later, now I know about delicious craft beer and responsible drinking. Speaking of craft beer, our breweries are celebrating this holiday for couples and single folks. Broken Trail has a special Raspberry Kolsch on tap. Dialogue is hosting a couples edition of Paint and Sip (tickets are $35 at the brewery). Kaktus has a pajama party at the Bernalillo brewery from 6 to 9 p.m. Red Door welcomes the touring band Whitherward at the brewery from 7 to 9 p.m. Santa Fe is offering up $1 off all Lustgarten pints and package at the ABQ taproom, plus pizza specials from Amore and a pair of live DJs. Steel Bender has the Village Innuendo (Cherry Wit) going on tap today, plus a new offer of a couples membership, which would cost you $10 less than two separate memberships (and it’s good for pairs of friends, too, not just romantic couples). Tractor has DJ Wae Fonkey spinning at Wells Park, while Los Metamorfos performs during the annual EX-orcism at Nob Hill. The biggest event of the day, however, is at Marble, where the latest edition of CRAVE pop-up beer dinner runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Chef John Katrinak from Soo Bak Foods has created a four-course meal to pair with Marble beers. It’s $70, with tickets for sale at the brewery. Hurry over before it sells out.

On the new beer front this week, there are a few options to check out. Bombs Away drops a slew of newcomers, including SNAFU Oatmeal Stout, Hazy Chain DIPA, Dunkelweizen, M1A1 ABQ Common, and Imperial Session IPA. Boxing Bear brings back its award-winning Bear Knuckle IPA. Broken Trail also unveils Double Black. Canteen added Obey the Darkside Stout last Friday (yes, we helped make that), plus Schwebock, Oat Brown, and Super Smalls Session IPA. Flix Brewhouse will be singing with Dr. Brownstone, plus Stuntman Light Lager Returns and Say It Loud Coffee Stout debuts Thursday. La Cumbre has a fresh batch of REDiculous IPA, plus 1968 IPA and The Majestic Steed, a Scottish Wee Heavy, and Go For Broke DIPA will be out in cans and on tap this Friday. Marble adds Chocolate Pinky, a blonde ale with cherries and chocolate, plus Caffee Roggenbier. Starr Brothers brings back Thunderr Ale IPA and Phantom Limb Black Rye IPA. Steel Bender also has Cow Plow Brown back on tap. Turtle Mountain has fresh McSmack, plus Thundermouse IPA arrives.

Up in Santa Fe, Second Street chills out with some fresh Vienna Lager.
