With 32 brewers from Silver City to Taos and everywhere in-between this is a rare opportunity to taste the great beer being brewed throughout New Mexico. Small breweries such as Little Toad Creek Brewery from Silver City and Blü Dragonfly Brewing from Raton to more recognizable brands such as Bosque Brewing and Marble Brewery will be present with award-winning beers. What makes this event truly “Great” is that a portion of every Tasting Ticket goes directly back to the breweries and the families that run them. Includes some top Rio Rancho brewpubs.
- Tasting Tickets are $40 and include a commemorative Festival pint glass, sample pours of any 16 beers, a full pint of the beer of choice, and unlimited access to the entertainment and activities.
- Pay As You Go Tickets are $10 and include a commemorative Festival pint glass and unlimited access to the entertainment and activities. Attendees can purchase tastes and pints directly from the breweries.
- Designated Driver Tickets are $5 and include unlimited access to the entertainment and activities.
There is an additional fee for the small-group tasting classes. Parking is free and the event is strictly 21 and over. For complete details and tickets to the Festival and Conference, you may visit the official event website at: www.TheGreatNewMexicoBeerFestival.com.
