Fall Fest Time Approaching

This is just a very early reminder to set Saturday, October 8 aside for a day of drinking. The second annual NM Brew Fest and Music Showcase will be held on that date from 12-6 at Villa Hispana at Expo New Mexico at the State Fairgrounds (same great spot as last year). Tickets will go on sale August 20 at a special one-day price of $15, which can be purchased online or at Marble brewery that day. Tickets will be $25 thereafter. You VIPs out there can take a break from the lines at Q Bar and enjoy perks such as special beer/food pairings from local chefs as well as pours from Odell Brewing (exclusive to the VIP area) and a goodie bag from Whole Foods (kind of like the bags movie stars get at award shows, only organic). VIP tickets will cost $50, though a discounted VIP ticket party is in the works to be held at ABQ Brew Pub. Date and cost are TBD. Chris Goblet, organizer for the fest, says the idea this year is to have all 23 statewide breweries represented, though not all have committed at this time. I'll keep you posted on any updates I get.
