    We're only a scant few weeks away from seeing Elevated IPA in cans (the cans and canning line are at La Cumbe now).

    I brought my own can and they were more than happy to fill it. I never make them so it's sort of nice to have something different.

    7.2% alcohol by content?! BAM indeed! La Cumbre is one mountain of a beer - especially at a pint a pop. I now have a weekend plan...

    Cool write up about biking and breweries in ABQ (not an all-inclusive list but a good start):

    Biking Albuquerque’s breweries » Travel | DRAFT Magazine

    The best way to cool the burn from all that red and green chile? A pint of craft beer like only Albuquerque can brew. And when you’re done biking the city’s best breweries, you’ll be ready for another plate.

    That's why I post "before" pix.

    I'll be in Santa Fe for a few days, a week from now. I am definitely checking out Santa Fe Brewery and the Marble tap room near the plaza. Any other recommendations, in Santa Fe?

    I love the Imperial Java Stout, so good. Thanks.

    Santa Fe beer report...

    My wife and I rented a casita near the Plaza, and spent 3 days eating, shopping, hot springing, hiking, and for me, drinking beer. I hit ALL 4 (are there more?) breweries in Santa Fe. Here are my vague impressions...
    - 2nd Street - Great location at the Railyard! I ordered a sampler, highlights were the Cream Stout and the Double IPA. I wasn't a big fan of the standard IPA, for me it was very bitter but without the balancing sweetness. I guess that is OK for something different than when I am used to, but not my preference.
    We only had appetizers, the big pretzels with ghee (aww yeah) and calamari, both were good. We were stuffed from lunch at the Plaza Cafe and Kakawa chocolate.
    - Santa Fe Brewing - Lucky for me the quilt store was down this way, so my wife had an extra reason to drive South, as this is a bit out of town. I love their Java Stout. Chicken Killer was great, at 10% still smooth not overly sweet. I liked their Porter enough to buy a six pack of it. Cool tap room. Their taster tray was a bargain - 10 4 oz. pours for $8.50.
    - Marble Tap Room - Marble has a tasting room on the Plaza. Great location with a patio overlooking all the action, and propane heaters for the night. Ordered multiple tasters here too. I've had the Red here in CO, but enjoyed their IPA and Double White. And HBC Brown. They make great beer, for sure.
    - Blue Corn - Our last dinner in Santa Fe. My wife picked it, I felt guilty having us go to yet another brewery by this point. The food was good, real good, our waitress was spotty or just an off night. I liked the IPA, I don't recall anything really sticking out but the beers were solid. Once again I ordered a sampler here.

    OK so I wasn't taking notes, and since my wife doesn't drink beer I had to drink all of it, so memory is a little spotty. But I definitely came away happy with the local beer scene and looking forward to my next opportunity.

    Oh bike-related...

    We spent a half day at Ojo Caliente, 1 hour North of Santa Fe. My wife scheduled a massage in the morning and I rode most of the trails there. The property borders BLM land.

    The trails are fun. Nothing mind-blowing, but still fun weaving back and forth through the desert. The main access is a road that brings you up to the mica mine, then you jump on multiple singletracks. It would be nice if they could route some trails up some of the hills, it stayed mostly level in the valley so no big ascents/descents, just a lot of XC loose trail.

    The pools are real nice. I think there were six public pools in all. I wish I could relax and spend more time there. I recommend.
