History On Tap Feb. 27 At Unquarked Features History Of New Mexico’s Craft Brewing And Special Beers


Join the Los Alamos Historical Society and the Creative District on for a special Wednesday edition of History On Tap at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at UnQuarked Wine Room.

Chris Jackson, the author of Albuquerque Beer: Duke City History on Tap will be presenting on the origins of New Mexico’s craft brewing scene. This includes the arrival of the railroad and the first brewing boom of the late 19th/early 20th centuries, to the eventual reawakening of the independent brewing spirit on a Galisteo Ranch in 1988 and the beginning of the modern boom – with a certain brewery on the corner of First Street and Marble Avenue.

In honor of this event, UnQuarked is featuring the following local brews on tap:

  • Slumdog Mango Cider – Sirphey & Black Mesa
    • A hard lassi for a tough day
  • Thunder from Dortmunder Lager – Marble Brewing
    • Floral, spicy lager inspired by the Dortmund region of Germany
  • Project Dank IPA – La Cumbre Brewing
    • An ever-changing project of LC’s hoppiest endeavors
  • 7K IPA – Santa Fe Brewing
    • West Coast-style IPA with notes of grapefruit + citrus
  • EOP Tart – Bosque Brewing
    • The beloved Elephants on Parade gets a sour twist
  • Cowboy Coffee – Tractor Brewing
    • A collaborative Villa Myriam Coffee pale stout
  • Red Ale – Marble Brewing
    • Pacific-Northwest hops balanced by caramel + toasted malts
  • Grandfather Owl – Bosque Brewing
    • Full-bodied porter that finishes with the malty richness of burnt sugar
  • Monks Wit (Bottle) – Abbey Brewing
    •  A refreshing ale with a multi-dimensional flavor profile.
