Saying Goodbye to Summer

Not going to Telluride for Blues and Brews? Skipping the Great American Beer Fest? Boycotting Colorado fests in general? Take that money you saved and head up to Pajarito Mountain in Los Alamos on Saturday, Sept. 24th for the annual Ullrfest. The fest celebrates the end of the wonderful days and nights where you can stroll the streets without near-zero temperatures and freezing wind chilling you to your core. The end of my favorite time of year is celebrated because I guess skiers and snowboarders need that kind of crappy weather to create the right conditions (i.e.: snow), but I don't have to like it. I do like the Ullrfest and its $10 admission fee, which entitles you to numerous samplings from 10 of New Mexico's finest breweries as well as a pint of your choice. Additional pints may be purchased for $4. The fest will go from noon-5, with many other outdoor activities coinciding with the fest. There will be a disc golf tournament, and the lifts will be open for you mountain bikers and people who like to go sledding on grass.

Just found your blog. I think we'll try to make it up to the ULLR.

Thanks for reading! It has always been a fun fest and not too far from Albuquerque.
