Event Description

Brewing in New Mexico began in the 1850s when small breweries serviced short-lived boomtowns teeming with early settlers thirsty for brew. By the time Prohibition came in 1918, New Mexico breweries were completely tapped out. It wasn't until 1988, when the Santa Fe Brewing Company began slaking local thirsts, that beer was again brewed in New Mexico. By the late 1990s, New Mexico was experiencing a resurgence in local brewing. Today, the state boasts a craft brewing renaissance. New Mexican breweries receive national attention, including eight medals at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival in Denver. Join author Jon C. Stott as he recounts New Mexico's brewing history, collects hops heritage and samples local brewpubs from across the state.

Jon C. Stott is an English professor emeritus from the University of Alberta. His interests include writing about sports, children's literature and beer. In 1973, he wrote the Western Hockey League's official 25th-anniversary commemorative magazine, and he has since authored three books on minor-league sports, including Hockey Night in Dixie and Ice Warriors. He has four publications on the study of children's literature, and in 2010, he retold stories from many lands in the children's book A Book of Tricksters. Jon's beer guidebook, Beer Quest West, profiles all the microbreweries in BC and Alberta. He lives in Edmonton, Alberta. Please visit www.beerquestwest.com.
