Valencia county puts on this event each year, but skipped the past two years due to COVID. This event brings together families, communities, and businesses. All the Valencia and Los Lunas schools participate alongside the Chamber and that’s why this event grows more each year. They are expecting about 6000-10,000 attendance.
377 Brewery is a small brewery that has been in business for 6 1/2 years. This year they have sponsored the Matanza by creating a special beer made for that specific day. This beer is a cornflake linger beer, and because they are a European style they went more with a traditional style. Very easy to drink only 4.5%.
