It’s New Mexico versus Colorado in a friendly battle tonight during the Battle of Fort Albuquerque. Locals La Cumbre and Bosque Brewing Co. will compete against Colorados Odell and New Belgium Brewing Co.

“It will be a takeover of all four breweries,” said Amanda King, Odell’s director of marketing and branding. “It will be a friendly competition to see who is selling more beer. Representatives from all breweries will be there and there will be some fun games and giveaways. “

Odell is also having a special beer dinner tonight at 6:30 am in The Crown Room at The Downs Racetrack & Casino, 145 Louisiana NE. The gourmet restaurant has partnered with Odell for this five-course meal paired with six of Odell’s best offerings.

La Cumbre will also hold its own tap takeover on Sunday from 11:00 am to midnight at Gecko’s Nob Hill, 3500 E. Central.

“We’ll likely have around four to five beers,” said Geraldine Lucero, La Cumbre’s social media director. “We’re going to premiere our Strawberry Gose at Gecko’s. The bottles in the brewery were sold out in less than a week. “

A Gose is an old German type of beer that is an unfiltered wheat beer with 50 to 60 percent malted wheat. It has a low hop bitterness and dryness and spiciness from the use of coriander seeds and pungency from the addition of salt, according to La Cumbres social media post about the release of Strawberry Gose.

A new batch of La Cumbres award-winning Project Dank will also be available at the event on Sunday. The grains and hops used to make Project Dank batches vary, but generally a combination of Canadian Superior Pale Malts and some non-caramel specialty malts are used.

A combination of Chinook, CTZ, Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, Sorachi, Ace, Meridian, and a variety of southern hemisphere varieties are also used, according to La Cumbre’s website.
