No dazzling tales of drunken ribaldry this time. Instead, I spoke with beer masters at our fine Albuquerque brewpubs about this week’s special rotating taps. That way, you can schedule your week around beers to try, much like I plan mine around “TV Guide.” These rotating beers are usually made in small batches, so don't be surprised if something is out upon your visit. I suggest trying to visit each brewery daily to avoid the chance of disappointment.
Simcoe Pale Ale “This single hop pale ale is a great spring beer, with big citrus hop aroma and flavor, little malt character, and a nice crisp and refreshing finish.” 5.4 percent Alcohol By Volume (ABV)
Extra Special Bitter (ESB) “This beer is highlighted by rich English malts and just the right amount of hops to add balance.” 5.9 percent ABV
Marble Bock “Dominated by Munich and Vienna malts, this beer has a malty rich flavor without being too sweet.” 7.1 percent ABV
Porter “Dark and rich with a dry finish.” 4.7 percent ABV
TIPA “Triple IPA. Loads of hops, rich pale malt, long bitter-sweet finish.” 11 percent ABV
