Somethin' is Brewin' in Burque: 12th Annual IPA Challenge
If you still haven't gotten around to checking out Tractor Brewery's new Downtown location at 1800 Fourth Street NW, then Sunday, July 20, is a great day to head out there, as Tractor will be holding the third and final round of the 12th annual IPA Challenge. Collaborating with the New Mexico Brewers Guild (yes, this does actually exist), Tractor Brewery Wells Park is giving every Burque beer lover a chance to sample IPAs by local beer brewers all over the state and decide which contestant will take home the blue ribbon. Twenty bucks gets you a seat on the panel with the other thirsty judges.
This showcase kicks off at Noon on Sunday, so you and your discerning taste buds will need to head on over to Tractor's new Downtown location straight from church. If you're not the church-going type, you can get your religion at the brewery as well, with favorite locals The Porter Draw bringing their tunes of moonshine and redemption to the Tractor stage. The challenge concludes around 6pm so you can get yourself home safely and rest that jiggling belly, or stay out and reward yourself with another strange brew for a job of judging well-done. EDITOR'S NOTE: The Porter Draw are no longer scheduled to play at this event. Tractor Brewery Wells Park • Sun Jul 20 • Noon • $20 • View on Alibi calendar
