Ponderosa Brewing Co and Music Go Round
(May 25, 2016)— Ponderosa Brewing Co and Music Go Round, Albuquerque — In Albuquerque we always say that for such a big city, it feels like a small town. That’s proven when you happen across a fun event when you’re just out having a beer. This happened to my husband and I when our son was with his grandma and we decided to go out. We decided to go to Ponderosa Brewing Company. Since it’s between the Explora Science Center and the Natural History Museum, it’s within walking distance to a lot of fun things to do. I had been to Ponderosa Brewing Co once before and really liked the place. It’s got a ton of windows inside and a really big patio with the requisite umbrellas for the NM sun outside. I chose to take my husband there on our night out and when we got there, we discovered that not only were we going to get to have great beer, we were going to be treated to a music festival too! It was called Music Go Round and there were booths for art and jewelry and a spot under the Ponderosa Brewing Company water tower for the bands.
We heard a band that sounded kind of like Sublime. There was some country. It was a great blend of music. We also got a great seat on the patio where we could enjoy the music and the beautiful evening.
The beer at Ponderosa is great too. They have a ton of choices and they are all good. I got a flight and was not disappointed. The best ones in our opinion were the milk stout and the kölsch. As the sun was setting, we walked around the tables set up and saw some original artwork, some handmade jewelry with lots of wood and turquoise, and some fun tshirts and stickers. I love that Albuquerque is the kind of city where you can run across an event like that just on a night out.
