Deadbeach Brewery in Downtown El Paso is sharing their love for craft beer with El Paso this weekend with the second annual 915 Beerfest.
The event is planned by Deadbeach’s owners Justin Ordonez and Gabriel Montoya as a way to showcase other local breweries and debut new pours that Deadbeach has.
“There’s going to be chocolate beers, and cherry beers, and ginger beers,” Ordonez said. “We’re doing our Velvet Rose which is an imperial white chocolate red ale. We’re going to have different types of sours, we’re going to have booths outside, inside games, stage, and bands.”
Organizers say that they had a great turnout last year. They expected about 3,400 people and about 6,000 showed up to the event.
For Deadbeach’s owners, the brewery is more than a place to work, it’s a way of life. It’s home. “When people come in here we like them to feel at home and we like them to be relaxed and enjoy themselves and drink what they like,” Martinez said.
The event begins on Saturday, March 16 at 2 p.m. and ends at midnight at Deadbeach Brewery located at 406 N. Durango. The event is free to the public, beer tastings will be available for purchase at the event.
