Half-Off Party!

Don't get excited, ladies. By "half-off", I do not mean my state of dress. I am talking about something possibly even more enticing: This Thursday, August 12, beginning at 7 pm, Marble is hosting a party where tickets for the upcoming NM Brew Fest and Music Showcase will be sold for $15.00, half-off the regular ticket price of $30.00. Attending breweries are still being finalized, but event organizer Chris Goblet tells me that he has firm commitments from Eske's, Santa Fe, Marble, Sierra Blanca, and Rio Grande. He is also in discussion with many others around the state, and ultimately is planning on 15 local and 5 out of state breweries pouring their beers. The fest takes place at Villa Hispana at Expo NM on Saturday, October 2, from 12-7. Seven hours of craft beer and live local music sounds like a good way to spend a Saturday. It actually sounds a lot like my day today, except the music is coming from Pandora.com. Take advantage of the special offer this Thursday night at Marble- the event is sure to be a good time, and you may even witness half-off ABQ Beer Geek!

Awesome, thanks for the heads-up! With the Brew Fest on Oct 2nd, I wonder if this means no Septemberfest?

Sounds like it'll be a good one. I sent one of my agents to pick up tickets and was told they stopped selling at some point. Ah well.

Marsh- I was told there will still be a Septemberfest, as that is Marble's event and the Brew Fest is a separate entity.

Reid- that sucks. At 9:00 when I left, tickets were still being sold.

Good to hear. This will be a busy few weeks in Beer Land. Dang, life is rough.
