Drink in the Blues at Sister

Come on down to the construction zone eyesore that is downtown Albuquerque for an Oskar Blues tap takeover at Sister (407 Central). As far as actual "tap takeovers" go, this one is pretty tame. After all, only six of Sister's 40+ taps will be devoted to Oskar Blues beers. Call it more of a tap co-existence. But the OB beers being poured will be enough to make you happy, and send you on your way upstairs for that double Jack and Coke you definitely don't need. From 5-9 pm (and later, if the kegs haven't kicked by then) sample some of Oskar Blues finest, including the monster 10% Imperial Stout, Ten Fidy. It's said to be the first keg of Ten Fidy poured in the state...running water and electricity can't be too far behind, New Mexico. I tried to get Oskar Blues to send a keg of Ten Fidy for ABQ Beer Week a couple of years ago, but they wouldn't budge. Glad to see times are a' changing. Oskar Blues merchandise will be raffled off there will be a glass giveaway as well, so you don't have to bring an extra large purse for stealing. Enjoy the weekend!
