Bearfest 2017

BearFestLogo-2017-01

BearFest 2017 is going to be even better than last year! We've added more LOCAL craft breweries, wineries and distilleries, an eclectic lineup of some amazing LOCAL craft vendors, some fun diversions with free Gamers Anonymous video gaming, a Cornhole Tournament sponsored by The LOCAL Brewhouse, and of course LIVE MUSIC to complement the festive mood!

Please note that BearFest 2017 has changed locations!!

Due to the increased popularity of BearFest and to accommodate our residential and commercial neighbors, BearFest will now be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center. This means BearFest 2017 will be BIGGER, BETTER and will have MORE SPACE to showcase the best New Mexico craft beers, wines, ciders and vendors.

20 New Mexico breweries

3 New Mexico distilleries

2 New Mexico wineries

Dozens of Local New Mexico Vendors
