We've Got a Bad Case of Loving Brews

Craft beer fever (not to be confused with Jack Daniel’s flu) has been spreading through this city with a vengeance, and with nearly 10 local breweries (and the possibility of a few more this year), there's no better time for Burque to celebrate the best drink since Grape Shasta.

Saturday is the first day of the inaugural Albuquerque Beer Week, seven days of events focusing on craft beer. The festivities begin with a local-beer-fueled golf tournament at Desert Greens and culminate with the Blues and Brews fest at Sandia Casino. In all, there are more than 20 events to attend at the city's best breweries and bars. Visit to start planning your schedule.
