Finding your way through ABQ Beer Week

Albuquerque Beer Week is upon us, and the events are amazing, delicious, exciting – but yet a little daunting.  There are 167 events, and only 11 days – some days have over 20 events taking place.  As much as we would all like to attend each and every lovely event, we will have to make our choices.  We are here like student advisors to help you find your Beer Week path.  Here are some tips-

Find Events Based on Your Personality: We have sorted events into categories (Art, Food, Festival, Release, Tasting, Educational,  Games, Music, Special Tappings & Tap Takeovers). Use these to pick the events that suit you.

Find Events Based on Your Hood: We have sorted events into areas (ABQ Uptown, Brewery District, Downtown, Nob Hill, NE Heights, University & Westside). Use these if you want to stay within your area of town – or perhaps pick a different area of town for each day! 

Choose Your Favorite Venue (or Find a New Favorite): We have sorted events by venue.  See what your favorite pub is doing, or take this chance to try something new!

Search Out Favorite & New Breweries: We have sorted events by brewery. Yep, you can sort your way through all the breweries taking part in this year's Beer Week.  I suggest you have a beer while you do - it will make you thirsty.

Get Some Professional Advice: We all need some professional help from time to time – so here’s some free advice  from our drinking professionals when it comes to where to enjoy ABQ Beer Week!
