Albuquerque Blues & Brews is currently registering breweries to participate in our grand tasting. The festival will consist of 1 hour of limited admittance Early Access Tasting followed by 3 hours of general admission tasting. This year we will also have a VIP Lounge with food and beer available. The festival will benefit multiple local charities.
What is expected from your brewery? We are not charging breweries for booth space, but we do ask that you show up at your assigned setup time, do not leave your booth unattended during the tasting time, and leave your area clean and broken down at the end of the beer tasting. We also ask that you provide 10-12 cases or two 1/2 bbls, a minimum of 1 New Mexico certified server for the duration of the tasting and submit names of all servers who will be attending no later than May 3, 2019. If you are unable to provide a server, or would like to request a second, we ask for a $50 donation to charity if you can.
We are also looking for beer donations for the VIP Lounge, please indicate below if you would be able to provide any. We will provide 2 VIP Tickets ($130 value) for 2 cases of donated beer for the VIP. We are not asking for your rare or special beers, as we will not be doing special tasting. We will be providing a lounge for people to relax, have a beer and get a snack.
What is provided? We provide you with a 10' x 10' area, a table and a tablecloth. We ask that you bring signage, etc. to create a fun and exciting area for attendees. Please let us know if you have canopies, umbrellas, etc. to attract attention to your area.
How do I sign up? Please fill out the booth request form below by Wednesday March 27. Booth space is limited at this event and will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. After registering you will receive an information packet about the event.
