Five breweries will join some 30 restaurants at Taste of Durango, the annual downtown extravaganza.
Taste of Durango goes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 16.
Main Avenue will be closed downtown for the event. Pagosa Brewing will join Durango's Ska Brewing, Steamworks Brewing, Durango Brewing and Carver Brewing in pouring beers for the masses.
Taste of Durango is one of my favorite local events. You have to purchase tokens to exchange for food and beer, all of which means some serious time spent waiting in line. But the beer is good and the food can be inventive.
Pets are not allowed at the event, and the organizers are working to limit alcohol over-consumption. Taste of Durango actually turned at least one brewery away this year to keep drunken misbehavior to a minimum.
But the five who will be there should be more than adequate. Bring your shades; the weather should be great.
