Going ale out at ABQ Blues and Brews

Albuquerque’s premier beer week returned with an 11-day celebration for its 9th anniversary. Albuquerque Beer Week kicked off May 23 and runs through June 2. Albuquerque Beer Week is a barley-filled celebration with something for everyone: local microbrew tastings, exciting tours, incredible food events, and some of the best bands that Albuquerque has to offer.
Part of the celebration is the Albuquerque Blues and Brews Fest. Albuquerque Blues & Brews Festival is a charity fundraiser for local NM charities, and it is one of the largest beer celebrations in the state where you could enjoy unlimited samples from your favorite local and regional breweries, and maybe find a new favorite while you’re at it. About 60 breweries were on hand to sample their delicious brews. On top of that, the top Blues Bands in Albuquerque were there to showcase their best and bluesiest music. Along with tasting delicious beer, there were a variety of games, and vendor booths, and they also had raffles and prize drawings.
