Local iQ Magazine presents the fourth annual installment of the state's biggest microbrew festival — the NEW MEXICO BREW FEST. Held on the beautiful grounds of the Villa Hispana complex at NM Expo, NMBF features an ever-expanding lineup of New Mexico breweries pouring tastes and pints to thirsty hop heads. A complete roster of local breweries will be announced on September 1.
Eight out of state breweries will also be on hand in the WHOLE FOODS MARKET BEER VILLAGE, including New Belgium, Deschutes, Stone, Oskar Blues, Left Hand Brewing, Odell and more TO BE ANNOUNCED.
Also included in this five hour Oktoberfest-themed event is a roster of inventive local food trucks, including Supper, Rustic and The Last Call and hours of live music all set in a very family-friendly, picnic-like atmosphere.
Bands confirmed to play this year are Santa Fe's Todd and the Fox, Mondo Vibrations, 11-piece German oompah band Die Polka-schlingel and Arizona's premier Irish rock band Keltic Cowboys. For a preview of the music this year, view the videos posted below.
