It's Tuesday. It's Still Beer Week.

Still hanging in there? This is the biggest ABQ Beer Week thus far, so you may have to find some extra stamina to get through it all. Grab your coconut water and B vitamins and head out to these events:

Sister Bar will host an Odell Tap Invasion that begins at 5. The elusive Porter with muscat grapes, Odell Amuste, will make an appearance on tap, as well as Nitro Lugene Imperial Milk Stout, Nitro Cutthroat Porter, Myrcenary DIPA, and the hoppy Seasonal Red Ale.

Grab a $25 bill and head over to Hotel Andaluz for their Taps and Apps event, featuring beers from four local breweries paired with appetizers from the hotel's fancy kitchen. The menu:

La Cumbre:
Strawberry & Arugula Salad with honey red onions & goat cheese- paired with El Jefe's Hefe

Chimichurri Grilled Prawns- paired with Marble Triple

Bosque Brewing:
Fried Lavosh chip topped with arugula, black fig, & topped with chile sugar cured duck breast- paired with Scotia Scotch Ale

Il Vicino:
Artisan Baguette topped with herbed ricotta cheese and sherried mushrooms- paired with Irish Red. This event also begins at 5, so maybe you could scarf down these apps and still make it to Sister for the Odell event.

If you're further up the street in the Nob Hill area, visit O'Niell's for their Sierra Nevada event. It's a free tasting, but you can expect more than a half-empty can of Torpedo when you show up. 2013 Bigfoot Barleywine, Kellerweis, Pale Ale, and Summerfest will be available for free samplin'. Also, Summerfest will be on tap for purchase.

Two Fools hosts another event on Tuesday, this one featuring a local brewery's beers. Il Vicino will bring a keg of their Irish Lager and a cask conditioned Irish Red. Kind of fits in with that whole Two Fools Irish theme.
