Dust Off That Tux

Y'all know I'm all about getting dressed up for a nice night out. Freshly pressed slacks, monogrammed cufflinks, Windsor knot. Meticulously groomed, like a Squash Blossom Boys fan. So, you can be damn sure that I am psyched for the NM Brewers Guild upcoming event, The Beer Premier. The Beer Premier takes place on Saturday, July 20 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The premise behind this event is that each of the 16 participating breweries will be debuting a beer never before released at their brewery. For instance: Turtle Mountain will unveil Summer Scotch Ale. Wuuhhh? My brain is swelling at the thought. Breweries will have up to four beers per booth available for you to sample. $30 gets you into the event, which begins at 5:30. Your ticket also gets you a commemorative tasting glass. The VIP admission is $70, gets you in at 4:30 with early samplins' of all the new releases as well as seating at either a 6 or 8 pm four course beer dinner. From the Brewers Guild, "Each beer dinner lasts for approximately 1.5 hours and includes an opening cheese course, roasted beet & goat cheese salad, a pork tenderloin with wild rice pilaf and finally a flourless chocolate cake desert course. Each course will be paired with a New Mexico craft beer and a brewmaster will announce each course and talk about his or her beer." And as we all know, beer tastes better when the person who made it is standing there watching your reaction while you drink it.
